Dubai tennis: Rublev questions ATP ranking system
According to the new system, players will not drop points accumulated from the previous season
World No.8 Andrey Rublev feels that he would have been No.4 at the moment if not for the current ATP ranking system.
The revised system, introduced last year, protects players who have not been able to travel and compete at tournaments due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the new system, players will not drop points accumulated from the previous season and can add points to their kitty.
"If we had the normal system, I would be like No.4 in the world I think,” Rublev said at the ongoing ATP Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Tuesday.
“So, what do you think is better for me, to be No.8 or No.4? With the system that we're having now, for me, it's much tougher to be No.4, so here is the answer,” the Russian added.
