Murray's Ranking

Quote

Just to expand on Colin's point a bit - the Race Rankings are basically irrelevant until the year end. Their only use is to really keep track of how everyone is faring in the calendar year. It can also give you an idea (more so later in the year, when players start hitting the maximum 18 tournaments that count towards the ranking) what rankings players are on track for in said year, if they can sustain their current level of points accumulation. At this stage though many players' points tally are under or over-inflating depending on how many tournaments they have played (Tomic for instance is quite high up owing to having played more tournaments than most).

I think both sets of rankings can be skewed by the number of tournaments they play.  The points vultures go all out to improve their points by playing more tournies in order to improve their points.  They can use the best result to oust a bad one.

Tamila, there is a limit to number of tournaments included in both the ATP main and Race rankings.  The secret of a good ranking is to play the events where a lot of the good players are missing!  Not many of those save the South American clay events! Only Federer is missing in Miami from the top ten players.

Put simply both rankings count 18 events with mandatory tournaments and the main difference is that one is based on a calendar year the other on the previous 52 weeks. There are a few more tweaks but nothing substantial.  On the ATP ranking the last ATP final points are included (which I think totally unfair on the lower ranked players as the best can count 19) but not for the Race simply because it will always be last year.

It is always good to read ranking information that shows that Andy really is one of the top four players in the world.  He may have lost comparatively easily to Novak in IW but in Live Rankings he is back to 3rd and keeps that spot in the 5W ranking list albeit that it excludes any points likely to be won in the period!  He is, of course, 4th in the official ranking this week just 115 points behind Nadal but 235 point ahead of Kei Nishikori.

Sorry if that has already been explained before but why the live atp ranking is different from atp weekly ranking ? Less points in Live atp ranking, plus if Andy doesn't gain a place in actualized atp ranking from where does he get points to gain one spot in live atp ranking ?

I've seen MA's post just above mine. Seems obvious but still don't understand...

The current Live Rankings have taken off this week Tournament points. eg Miami points from last year, Nadal had 600 while Andy only had 180. So Andy moves ahead of Nadal in the 'Live Rankings' this week.

Thank you for your answer !
One more question though, why the Live Ranking have taken off the points frome this week tournaments ? Is for resetting the results of last year pending to this year results ?

Getting the points in early in 2015 is good to be at 2nd in the Race Rankings. Perhaps we will not have to endure the uncertainty whether or not he will make the O2 this year? Last year was heart-stopping!

Yes that's right. If you look on the ATP profiles for the players the points from the previous year will have a drop date - usually at the beginning of the current year's tournament.

Here is Andy's profile showing the drop dates for his points:

The exception is with Davis Cup, where the previous year's points drop at the beginning of the month in the current year in which they were gained in the previous year. So Andy's 65 points from the tie vs Italy will drop at the beginning of April, at which point he'll drop the DC points from his countable tournaments and include the 90 points from Dubai in their place, until he gets a higher points score from another 250/500 tournament (hopefully in Munich!)

Nikko,

Do not despair you will understand the basics quite quickly. ATL keeps us well advised on minutae when there are peculiar detailed adjustments. There are circumstances where we all need the rules explained!
