New poster on this Board -- great site, but I do have a timely question given the effect of the "stagger" on this week's ATP computer rankings. When, as this week, there is in effect a 10th Masters event on the 12-month list (i.e. Cincinnati from 2003 and also Cincinnati 2004), how are the best 18 results compiled for the top players? I.e., normally I know it's the 4 GS events and the 9 TMS plus best 5 of any others -- now does it become best 4 of the others or is there an extra tournament that is counted for just the one week?
Thanks in advance for the response and keep up the good work.
