Re: Doubles Entry List (updated October 9, 2014)

Four Doubles Spots Also On Offer In Paris

The final four doubles spots will also be settled in Paris. After claiming their eighth title of the season on Sunday in Valencia, Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecau have a firm hold on fifth place and are guaranteed to qualify if they reach the quarter-finals. Sitting in the sixth position are 2012 champions Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez, who also are guaranteed to qualify if they reach the quarter-finals.

In the seventh spot, hoping to clinch their place are Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo, who must win the title to be guaranteed a place in London. Australian Open finalists Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen, currently in eighth spot, also must win the title to be guaranteed a place in London.

Wimbledon winners Jack Sock and Vasek Pospisil occupy 9th position but will qualify in the spot reserved for the highest-ranked Grand Slam champions ranked between 8th and 20th provided they reach at least the same around as Australian Open champions Lukasz Kubot and Robert Lindtsedt. The 10th placed Kubot and Lindstedt will be guaranteed a London berth reserved for a Grand Slam champion team if they can advance one round further in the tournament than Sock and Pospisil.

Re: Doubles Entry List (updated October 30, 2014)

i dont get this. When i look at the official atp site it says Raven/Klaasen at 8.http://www.atpworldtour.com/Rankings/Teams.aspx
Can somebody please help me?
It's kind of explained in smucav's post about 4 posts up. Kubot/Lindstedt are grand slam champions and as such get preference over Butorac/Klaasen. Only the top7 teams qualify, the 8th spot is reserved for a (top20 ranked) Grand Slam champion, in case one of those champions doesn't finish in the top7. If there are several top20 ranked GS champions, the second best ranked will move up to first alternate and from there on, the second and following alternates are based on the rankings. As such, Pospisil/Sock (also Grand Slam reasons) are the top alternates, which means Butorac/Klaasen are only 10th on the entry list (as shown in the OP).
