    Its the same thing if you compare roddick getting to the Semis at 720 points vs Safin getting to the semis at 900 points

    After looking at other Tournies, it seems that the Australian open is the only one that does this... All of the other slams have similar points.

    Has the ATP acknowledged that the AUSSIE open is a 'lesser' slam?

    If you win it is the same 2000 points... I don't understand this?

    It has been debated here already. From this year on, there will be more points difference between the winner and the rest. 2009 Wimby's points will be worth the same as AO's come July, we are just in a period of adaptation to the new system, so if, say, Safin makes Wimby semis again he will get less points this time around, so he will lose points overall.

    They didn't bother to adjust last year's points to the new system :)roll: how difficult could it be to do so), they just doubled everything. Making the same result (not just in slams, in practical every tournament) thus doesn't mean defending all the points since the new system doubled points only for the winner, but for semis and less it awards less than double of the previous.
