Re: Nadal calls for ATP rankings reform, what about WTA ?
No one agrees with Nadal, even Federer, who could benefit from a two year ranking like Nadal, as another top player.
Federer recently said "Even though I'm a top player who can benefit from a 2yr ranking, I cannot as the ATP player representative agree with this, as it would prevent lower ranked players from earning their way up the ladder, if they had a great season or great tournaments". Federer added "It wouldn't be fair to them".
That was a paraphrase; but basically what he said. I agree.
And the ATP already has provisions to protect injured players and their rankings.
This is just Nadal (who I like) being a selfish, spoiled cry baby, after losing his #1 raking this year.
Just go get it back next year Rafa! This is tennis, not golf (Golf has two year rankings, weighted to the current year; though Tiger stayed number one despite a poor 2nd ranking year, cause of his excellent 1st yr))!
