Note that only No1e remains constantly at #1 throughout, and if his weeks were to be counted (suspension might negate for stats purposes ) he would have 308 weeks at #1 on 9/7/2020 if everything up to and including the US Open were cancelled.


Predictably,

Novak vulturing weeks at no1 like crazy sitting on his couch in Monte Carlo and drinking Corona beer. ?

Also my bet would be they'll decide to freeze the rankings at some point going backwards to IW in that case.

You don't need to freeze the ranking, instead the players will get a points boost next year on how they do in those tourneys that are cancelled this year as they whont have any points to defend

I guess you are right in some way.

They will probably freeze ATP ranking in his use to decide seeding and keep ATP race to decide London qualifications and YE ATP#1.

Thanks for this. Someone mentioned that Novak would remain No. 1 through out the rest of the year if the suspension continued past Monte Carlo. It's nice to have a visual representation of this.

Thanks, nice summary.
An interesting case would be if WImbledon is the next tournament played. In that case, Djokovic, Nadal and Medvedev could each claim no 1 by winning the tournament independent of the others' results.
If it were Cincinnati, Medvedev would be no.2 and the first non-Big4 no.2 since Hewitt in 2005, fifteen years ago..

Note that only No1e remains constantly at #1 throughout, and if his weeks were to be counted (suspension might negate for stats purposes ) he would have 308 weeks at #1 on 9/7/2020 if everything up to and including the US Open were cancelled.


Predictably,
masterclass
We historians of the game may disagree but I am freezing all my stats right now. Feels very wrong to break records due to the tour being on quarantine due to the plague

The tour resumes on April 27th, and Madrid is May 3rd.
Plus I bet Rafa will play a tournament before Madrid-
Munich250 and Estoril250 are April 27th.

I think they should freeze rankings for these events for 12 mos but keep the race 2020 only. Yes it would be weird that they don’t eventually match up this year, but it’s going to be a weird year anyway.

Regarding the ranking point dilemma, the most essential question to answer is for how long the past events contribute to ATP ranking, 52 nominal weeks, or 52 real weeks?

52 nominal weeks means we keep counting weeks no matter what happens. 52 real weeks means weeks with events canceled because of the current virus situation don't count.

In the former case, some players suffer from of not being able to compete in their favorable events.

In the latter, the points from the same event in 2018 and 2019 will have different dropout dates, which means certain events will have double the weight in the ranking, which favors players did well on those events. (Wimbledon's seeding formula does this to grass events in determining the seeding but not the ranking.)

Are those weeks with double counting more or less valid as compared to the weeks with all events canceled? Considering that the break might be indefinitely long and the double counting weeks can only be maximum 52 weeks, I think the 52 real weeks approach is a better one.

You don't need to freeze the ranking, instead the players will get a points boost next year on how they do in those tourneys that are cancelled this year as they whont have any points to defend
As I said in other thread , that way of thinking doesnt consider future seedings.

its not fair for Isner to drop his 600 miami points in his favourite part of the season , go on and play RG with a different ranking, (heck maybe unseeded!)

I believe that the best solution would be to consider the results on the cancelled weeks from 2019, but make those events as optional for the rankings. The tournaments of this week where tournaments were interrupted should count only in case they wete higher than 2019 (so not both)

Would they not come up with an exception to pause rankings if the tour was actually cancelled until the USO, for example?

That terminology does not exist: real/nominal. Rulebook says 52 weeks, the rest is everyone trying to over complicate a very simple system. If rankings are frozen up until 27 April, all points that should have dropped by that date will drop all at once. How do I know this? Easy. History. Rankings weren't weekly in the 70s. Sometimes with 5-6 weeks in between releases, they would have tournaments stay longer than 52 weeks if no rankings were released exactly 52 weeks after a tournament was played.

This is why this will be kept as simple as possible:
  • All tournaments with entry dates between March 16 and April 27 will use March 9 as rankings for entry
  • All tournaments with entry dates after April 27 will use April 27 as rankings for entry
  • April 27 will probably be the next rankings issue, and it will drop all tournaments that should have dropped between now and then
<Replace April 27 with any "resume" date if suspension expands>

I guess the point of argument here is whether weeks between March 16 and April 27 count to Djokovic's #1 weeks.
