Can someone tell me why Djokovic lost 200 points and Nadal gained about 300 points?This happened after Barcelona.Djokovic didn't play this tournament and Nadal is defending champion.

If he played it last year (and I don't know if he did) and didn't this year then he failed to defend points there.

Due to a bit of scheduling shuffle this year, the points from Barcelona had already come off the rankings so Nadal gains 275 points. Nadal met fellow Spaniard David Ferrer in the finals. Ferrer gains 170 points but remains solidly at #5. In Munich, it was Fernando Gonzalez picking up his second title of the year. The win gets him 4 spots in the rankings to #11.

On the down side:

The points from Estoril fall off the rankings this week and as a result, Novak Djokovic is our Loser of the Week. He was the champ there last year and loses 185 points but stays at #3.

He was the defending Estoril (April 29th 2007) winner last year and that tournament was moved up to a few weeks ago. Due to the condensed season, this will be an ongoing situation.

Djokovic lost 200 points from Estoril 2007. They were taken just this week even though this year's tournament in Estoril was couple of weeks ago. Nadal gained 300 points from Barcelona. Last year's Barcelona points were taken off last week. Go figure.

Stupid schedule changes mess up with the rankings as well.

Djokovic didn't play it for sure.

Last year is was 200 points. I am not sure why they changed this. Price money?
