What are the differences between the ATP Ranking and the Race Ranking?
Unlike the “classic” ATP ranking, which is updated every week taking into account the points earned on the 52 previous weeks, the ATP Race ranking only takes into account the points earned during the current season and gradually accumulates the eighteen best results.
The ATP ranking consists of awarding points according to the performance of each player during major competitions. In total, these are 12 competitions that are taken into account and the points accumulated are valid on 52 weeks. Thus, for example, the winner of a grand slam garners 2000 points, the runner-up 1200 points, the semi-finalist 720 points and so on. For each major tournament the points are not the same, because at the masters 540 the victory attributes 1200 points, the final 540 points, and the half final 102.
The ranking is updated weekly and the points are valid for one year, but instead of being added together, they are compared. In other words, the performance of the player on a competition of the current year is compared to that of the same competition the past year. The points obtained are added to his total to obtain a new total for the week, for a new ranking that comes out every Monday.
