Carreno Busta is already ranked #10, therefore Andy will stay as #16.

Can anyone explain the 'protected ranking' after injury and why that doesn't/can't apply to Andy? It may sound a stupid question but I would like a serious answer!

I don't think it's stupid at all because I've often wondered the same thing given the fact that he's been out of competition for so long.   Knowing how strict the ATP are though, does the fact that he actually turned up for the USO and Brisbane with the intention of playing go against him?  Or that he was able to play Andy Live, even if it was only an exho?

Andy should be eligible for protected ranking. Is there someone saying he isn’t? Only question mark might be his exo lasst November. Though I don’t understand how that can have a bearing on ATP protected ranking.

Andy should also be able to benefit from unlimited wildcards. Assuming he uses PR to enter Rosmalen and Queens, Wimbledon might give him a WC so he can save his PR for later in the season. But Andy might prefer to use his PR and the WC go to some young player.

Info on PR from the ATP website:

A player may petition the Executive Chairman & President for an Entry Protection when he is physically injured and does not compete in any tennis event for a minimum period of six months. The written petition must be received within six months of his last tournament.

The Entry Protection shall be a position in the ATP Rankings, as determined by the player's average ATP Rankings position during the first three months of his injury. The Entry Protection shall be for entry into the main draw or qualifying competition or for special exempt consideration. The Entry Protection shall not be used for seeding purposes, Lucky Loser consideration or for entry into the Nitto ATP Finals.

The Entry Protection shall be in effect for either the first nine tournaments that the player competes in using the Entry Protection (excluding wild cards and entries as a Direct Acceptance with his current position in the ATP Rankings) or for the period up to nine months beginning with the first tennis event that the player competes in, whichever occurs first.

If a player is physically injured and does not compete in any tennis event for a period of twelve (12) months or longer, the entry protection shall be in effect for the first twelve (12) singles tournaments and the first twelve (12) doubles tournaments that the player competes in using the entry protection (excluding wild cards and entries as a direct acceptance with his current position in the ATP Rankings) or for the period up to twelve (12) months beginning with the first tennis event, including Special Events – Exhibitions, that the player competes in, whichever occurs first.

Thanks for that ATL - I asked the question because I read in the link above he may be ranked at 150 (ish) come Wimbledon. Hopefully his protected ranking will move him way up in the rankings.

Thanks from me too.  However, although I could be misreading it, from the last para it would seem that his exho could count against him if he's absent for 12 months.

Entry cut off for Wimbledon is 21st May. Andy will be ranked around 45 then so will be able to enter Wimbledon without PR or WC.

This means he doesn’t need PR for the grass season, but might need it for US hard courts. Nonetheless, he is eligible for WCs.

Andy’s PR will be 2 based on his average ranking in the first three months of the layoff.
