"ATF Restructres Asian Rankings"

ATF Restructures Asian Rankings

The Asian Tennis Federation (ATF) has decided to offer Asian ranking points to player’s winning matches in the Davis Cup ties played at all levels including the Asia/Oceania zone. The whole concept of re-structuring the Asian rankings came about with the launch of the Asian Tennis tour (ATT) in February. ATF is keen to encourage and give an  identity to all Asian players competing in the ATT and performing in Davis Cup for the pride of their nations.

Asian ranking will now be a combination of players' ATP points, performance in Davis Cup and the ATT tournaments. It means that players who have not made it to the ATP  singles  ranking  list  as  yet,  will at  least have an opportunity to get into the Asian ranking list with either their participation in ATT events or as being in the Davis Cup team of their nation.

After considering performance in the Davis Cup zonal ties held from July  15-­17,  at   least  19  players  who  did  not  have  ATP  points  as  yet, now have a rank in the Asian singles  anking list. Amongst others, Thailand's Pruchya Isarow ranked 902 in the ATP list stood at 96 in Asia, but after crediting his performance in the Davis Cup and the ATT, has now moved up to 51 in Asian Rankings.

Attached is the ATT Press Release & latest Asian Men’s Singles Ranking as on 25th July’2016.
