    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.

    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?
