This is from Filip Dewulf's blog (former Belgium tennis player) who spoke with Rochus a few days ago: "They doubled the ATP points this year. But it turns out that in some challengers and first rounds of ATP tournaments the points were not doubled. Meaning it's much harder for players who are trying to climb up the rankings through challengers. They only doubled the points for the better players, in the later stages of tournaments. Everyone will lose a lot of points this year. It's a disgrace. They did this without telling the players. We only knew this when we had seen our first ranking on january the first. That's the ATP." "Then they reased the price money of the ATP tournaments. At some events it even doubled. But in the first and second round and the quarter finals there wasn't even one dollar difference with last season! But from the quarter finals to semi finals they trippled the money. We said to them: Is this how you want to play it? The top guys have enough money from appearance fees alone." "The tournament of Belgrado. Normally the draw has 32 players. The day the entry list comes out, we see that the draw has only 28 players. The top 4 seeded players got a bye. Without telling anyone! Apparently Novak Djokovic wanted a bye in the first round. Nice!"
