    hmmmm ... interesting observation ... I don't know much about the rules, but that does sound out of the ordinary.

    meanwhile, the ATP Top 100 today, Monday, Dec. 13, 2010 ... is identical to last week's, not a single change :) @ http://www.atpworldtour.com/Rankings/Singles.aspx

    Were those players in the top 30 at the end of 2009? Maybe they weren't top 30 at the end of 2009! The rule says that players inside the top 30 at the end of 2009 have to count rankings that way in 2010. ...yes, they were top 30 at the end of '09. That doesn't explain it, then.

    Maybe they were injured for one of the TMS events and were allowed to count a different one without penalty because they were out for 30 days or more? ...no, all of those players have 8 TMSs counting in their rankings...

    Oh! I got it!

    IF you look at the official ATP rulebook - not the FAQ, the full rulebook - the full explanation is

    Bolding mine. Basically, it says that if players have played FOUR 500-level tournaments, they're allowed to count one extra 250-level tournament instead of their worst 500-level tournament.

    Nice find! Thanks.

    I guess it was just a coincidence that they all had won two 250 events this season.

    Next year, I expect improvements for Dolgopolov, Simon, Gasquet, and... Söderling. I think he will jump over Murray (maybe in the AO, since he doesn't have many points to defend) and possibly even over Djokovic. We'll see what time brings.

    And well deserved. Murray has done squat as of late.

    Apart from pumping Soderling at the WTF and Roger in the Shanghai final? Congrats to Robin - he could easily threaten for number 3 by going deep at the AO.

    Nadal obviously has gone huge. When you win three slams you are going to have a big lead. How many points is the WTF win worth(Fed's)?

    And on Roddick below Ferrer- Son, I am dissapoint.

    1500 points i think, there's a bonus points included as well for going undefeated.
