500 points would put him 15 points ahead of Ferrer at No. 5, but because he would have got 500 points by winning, and Del Potro therefore unable to defend his title, Andy could be No. 4.
Are we sure as we were all still uncertain what could be replaced by a new 500 event. Certainly Davis Cup but zero penalties some thought lasted until drop dates? That would give him only 5200 points still behind Ferrer but Del Potro has to make Semis to be above Andy if the Scot did win.
I am waiting on an update to the live ATP rankings to see what they think the position is come Monday when they show current positions and possible points after first round and maximums possible.
