The ATP revised its ranking system once again. Previous, the rankings would return to its customary 52-week system with Miami later this month. Now, that’s been changed to August 16 with Cincinnati.
Points earned from Miami 2019 until August 2019 Cincinnati, will remain on the rankings but at a 50% level. Players competing in events like Miami next month will take the greater of their 2021 points or their 2019 points.
Roger Federer, who won 2019 Miami but has withdrawn from the event, will keep 50% of his 1000 points on his rankings for another year. He’ll also keep at least 50% of his 2019 Wimbledon final points
Re-scheduled events like the French Open will also be part of the 50% system. Rafael Nadal will either get his full 2021 points from Paris or 50% of his 2020 October French points, whichever is greater. And those points will drop in June 2022.
The ATP could change the system again depending on how things unfold.
