Novak won 500 000 dollars from this years US open series, and that is not counting in this years prize money total on ATP's website.


www.************.com/rankings/2012/$$082712.htm (Novak had $6,023,741)

www.************.com/rankings/2012/$$091012.htm (After us open, 950k more (+$3,816 for doubles), that's $6,972,425 )

I know for a fact, last year, and the year before they counted bonus prize money


here's a 2010 example

Roger was second at US open series that year

www.************.com/rankings/2010/$$091310.txt


here you can see that Roger Federer won 525 000$ from reaching semi finals at the US open, and prize money for reaching us open semi finals that year was 400k + 125k from US open series.


So why ATP didn't count Novaks 500K this year?

To the OP, if you're going to make a thread, have something that's worth discussing. This thread is NOT interesting at all, thus a waste of space.

Sorry to everyone, I just don't know how to simplify it.



To me it is interesting, because prize money rankings is kind of a big deal.


And I know that each year they counted us open series bonus prize money (which can be up to 1 million dollars), and this year they didn't count it. I just thought (for some reason) that was interesting.

I guess I'm a way to big statistical geek.

Email the ATP about it. Maybe they just forgot.
