    You are quite welcome Safinator.

    I don't think you can navigate to it from the homepage - just save the address to your favourites instead.

    I can't take too much credit - I think it was the poster Seffina who first found the link.

    It is actually dead. The link you provided can't be found anywhere on ATP site and the fact it is still buried somewhere there just means they didn't bother to change software to disable it completely.

    Here is what FAQ page I left link to says:

    So singles race points are indeed dead.

    The Race is its previous incarnation clearly no longer plays any place in the marketing of the game, so from that perspective you are correct. But just as clear is the fact that the ATP ARE maintaining a table called the ATP Race, a table that ranks players according to the points won since the start of the season. So to argue that the race is dead is to argue that black is white, as clearly it is not dead - just different.

    I see, good to know we share the same view on trolls.:)

    Not disputing the 12 month system, as its quite fair and accurately reflecting players current deserved position according to their performane in the last 12 month. But I still find the race ranking interesting for the simple fact of knowing what each player has achieved so far this year.

    Who cares if the race is dead or not "according to ATP". Apparently many people are still "keeping scores" the way RACE used to, which is exactly I was looking for.

    It is irrelevant. Everyone can come up with their own version of ranking and post it on the internet, but the only relevant and important one is one "according to ATP".
