ATP Tour ranking points to be added and dropped as per traditional method starting August 23
The ATP Tour has been using an adjusted ranking system since the resumption of the tour in August 2020 due to the global pandemic
The ATP Tour has announced that ranking points will be added and dropped as per its traditional ranking methodology starting August 23, 2021.
From the rankings for the week after the Western & Southern Open, the points from the Cincinnati Masters on a player’s tally will drop off and be replaced by points earned in the 2021 edition.
For players who currently hold points from the Western & Southern Open in their ranking tally and who do not play in this year’s event for any reason, those points will also drop off on August 23, 2021. The ranking points at all ATP events after Cincinnati will also follow the traditional ranking methodology.
For tournaments held prior to and including the Canadian Open Masters, the modified “Best-Of” logic system will remain in use.
The ATP Tour also added that as of August 15, 2022, all adjustments put in place for the pandemic will be stopped and the tour will revert to its traditional 52-week rolling ranking methodology.
