    I thought Federer and Murray were tied…?

    • Rick said

      Yeah, I don’t get it, they both have 170 points.
      So what decides it then?
      LOL this shows how successful a marketing campaign this has been in the US, as I have no clue. 🙂

    • Rick said

      Now that I think about it, is it because Murray played more events?
      If so, that would be kind of strange in terms of accomplishment: Murray needed more matches/events to get the same number of points?
      But if the incentive is (presumably) to get players to enter summer events, I guess it does make its own weird kind of sense.

        1 Nadal, Rafael (ESP) 10,745 0 19
        2 Federer, Roger (SUI) 7,215 0 21
        3 Djokovic, Novak (SRB) 6,665 0 21
        4 Murray, Andy (GBR) 5,125 0 18

        As per ATP site. Number of tourneys last column right.

      I am confused too. Fed reached the finals of toronto and won cincinatti whereas Murray won toronto but lost before reaching semis of cincinatti, so how do they have same points in the first place

      Banti is right, Rick, the head-to-head (1-0) broke the tie. But what you say about number of matches won would have been the next criterion. TP left a link on the left column (near the top) with all the rules for the US Open Bonus Challenge. This is what it says about tie-breaks.

      In the event of a 2-way tie (for either first place and second place, or second place and third place, or third place and fourth place), then a-e below shall be applied, in order, until the tie is broken:

      a. Head-to-head record in Olympus US Open Series matches (in the current year)
      b. Greatest number of Olympus US Open Series matches won (in the current year)
      c. Greatest number of Olympus US Open Series sets won (in the current year)
      d. Greatest number of Olympus US Open Series games won (in the current year)
      e. If a tie still exists after applying the above, the tie shall be broken by a coin toss

    Nice first pic of Monfils. Very cool.

    TP thank-you so much for the Roddick pics. Happy Birthday and great win Andy!
