Subject: Change in ranking points?

If I am not totally mistaken, there should be a change in ATP ranking
points for every player, where their points are doubled, or close to
that, because of the increased points in 2009.

I was sort of expecting that might happen in today's rankings, but
apparently not. Maybe next Monday?

I haven't seen anything about that on the new ATP site, although there
is a lot about all the changes.

does this mean Nadal will have the highest number of points ever, in
history?

Yes, obviously - and of course that means he is the best player of all
time as well.

Got any other questions?

His ass picking points also get doubled and his underwear allowance
has tripled for 2009.

Waltz has been writing a lot about it in Daily Tennis. The changes in the
WTA rankings are much more extreme, as it turns out; the ATP changes are
comparatively modest (other than the points doubling and some events being
recategorized).

And the interesting part is that Djokovic would have become #2 in 2008
if they had used the new system this year.

I thought the first tournaments were next week. It would make more
sense to have the new point totals show up then.

It should probably be next Monday, since that is the first full week
of 2009, and there are no ranking events this week (just that Abu
Dhabi exo)
