    Hi all,

    If a tournament provides a consolation draw to initial rounds losers, will a player get ranking points by playing and winning the consolation rounds? Likewise will one lose any points if he does not play in those (consolation) matches?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you will get points, but not many, and you WILL NOT lost points by not playing, but you could possibly get suspension points for not playing in consolation.

    I think that you don't get consilation in L7 and L8, but I'm not sure.

    when i played in my last consolation matches i won the consolation tournament if u want to call it that, but anyway instead of 20 points i got for winning in the main draw, i would get 10 points for winning a match in consolation

    what level tournament was it? I know that when I played L4-L6 they have a full consolation tournament, they sometimes have it in L7, and usually just one match in L8.
