Why Novak's bonus prize money from US open series don't count this year?

Novak won 500 000 dollars from this years US open series, and that is not counting in this years prize money total on ATP's website.


www.************.com/rankings/2012/$$082712.htm (Novak had $6,023,741)

www.************.com/rankings/2012/$$091012.htm (After us open, 950k more (+$3,816 for doubles), that's $6,972,425 )

I know for a fact, last year, and the year before they counted bonus prize money


here's a 2010 example

Roger was second at US open series that year

here you can see that Roger Federer won 525 000$ from reaching semi finals at the US open, and prize money for reaching us open semi finals that year was 400k + 125k from US open series.


So why ATP didn't count Novaks 500K this year?

To the OP, if you're going to make a thread, have something that's worth discussing. This thread is NOT interesting at all, thus a waste of space.

Sorry to everyone, I just don't know how to simplify it.



To me it is interesting, because prize money rankings is kind of a big deal.


And I know that each year they counted us open series bonus prize money (which can be up to 1 million dollars), and this year they didn't count it. I just thought (for some reason) that was interesting.

I guess I'm a way to big statistical geek.
