FedEx ATP Ranking Methodology Returns to Normal | ATP circuit
For the first time since the resumption of the ATP Tour after its pandemic suspension in August 2020, FedEx ATP ranking points will be added and removed according to the traditional methodology from August 23 (the ranking after the Western & Southern Open 2021 to Cincinnati).
A player’s current ATP Western & Southern Open ranking points will decrease on August 23, 2021 and will be replaced by the points earned by the player at this year’s Western & Southern Open (played August 15-22). These new points will remain in a player’s allocation for 52 weeks, decreasing on August 22, 2022. Additionally, players who currently have Western & Southern Open points in their allocation and are not participating in this year’s event will have also their existing Cincinnati ranking points drop on August 23.
Points earned at all events after Cincinnati will be treated the same.
On the other hand, the results of tournaments organized up to and including the Open National Bank presented by Rogers in Toronto (from August 9 to 15) remain subject to the “Best Of” logic linked to the pandemic (described in detail below). below).
As of August 15, 2022, all pandemic-related adjustments will cease and the traditional 52-week rolling ranking methodology will be fully reinstated.

“Best Of” logic
FedEx ATP rankings are in a “Best Of” system that runs up to and including the week of August 9, 2021. The “Best Of” ranking system adds events as usual, except when a player has two scores from the same tour level event. In this situation, the player will only count the best of his two results in his ranking.
Events that took place between March 4, 2019 and August 12, 2019 have been extended for an additional 52 weeks, or until the event is played in 2022 (max 156 weeks) and weighted at 50% for the 52 last few weeks. As an exception, the 2019 events in Rome, Roland Garros, Kitzbühel and Hamburg are not extended for an additional 52 weeks because the 2020 editions have been played. For this reason, the 2020 scores for these events must be extended for an additional 52 weeks, or until the event is played in 2022, and weighted at 50%.
