  Anna Dmitriev, the sports commentator of NTV: the new rating is not indicative
- I was not defined till now yet with the relation to new rating ATP. But some things are obvious already now. The elite, as a matter of fact, has lost nothing, but here serednjaki have appeared in a difficult situation. Someone in the season beginning was not in shape, someone is injured, here and it has turned out that many tennis players have at once appeared outside of first fifty. We take the same Marata Safin. It on new system even does not enter into one hundred, and on the old would go on 26 - m a place. Also what now? If he does not play well on steam - to a three of tournaments risks not to get to number 50 of the tennis players admitted to participation in the Sydney Olympic Games. Also it will turn out that there will go there many, seriously conceding Maratu in a class.
in general, ten new rating, except for first two numbers, it is absolutely not indicative. Also has still carried that in ending Australian Open Agassi and Kafelnikov - really strongest at present played. And if it has not occurred, it would be possible to give up a rating as a bad job.
everything that now occurs, it is faster experiment. To speak particularly about advantages or lacks of new system it will be possible only upon termination of a year. But already there are questions. Meanwhile ATP uses an old rating at revealing of the tennis players supposed to tournaments directly - bypassing qualifying competitions. It is supposed that from next year this procedure will be already spent by means of a new rating. But after all upon termination of a year all points typed by tennis players, burn down. What to do? How to consider? In a word, it is made not clearly that will be further.
