Actually, I do believe I have something here. The World Tour Finals 'qualifications cut' (Qualification Cut: any player with more points than the cut is qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals)
Currently, the cut is at 3325 - anyone with points above that is qualified for London. That numbers is reduced as the tournaments go by. DelPo currently is sitting on a very strong 2270 so far.
So behind Ferrer who last qualified, Tsonga/Fish/Berdych/Tipsarevic/Almagro are all in Delpo's way - but have all lost in the last week. So Del Potro has to take advantage of this week with his competitors all at a loss.
