Nadal is struggling from a foot injury and announced that he will not paly in any further tournaments in 2021.    That means that he is out f th race to be in the top 8 players  who will compete in the Turin EOY player Championship.    Nadal is at present at no 7 in the Race to play in Turin and player like Ruud, Hurkacz and Sinner is in the run to take upo the no 7 and 8 positions..


It is not clear whether the same applies to Dominic Thiem  - but he is not likely to play either - but we will have to wait and see what happens;     


At present the rankings are as follows:-


   5   Rafael  Nadal                     -     7 815

   6   Dominic  Thiem                 -      6 995

   7   Andrey Rublev                   -      6 400

   8   Matteo Berrettini               -     5 533

   9   Roger Federer                   -     4 125

  10   Denis Shapovalov             -     3 580   

  11   Casper Ruud                    -     3 415

  12   Pablo Carrero-Busta         -      3 325

  13   Hubert Hurkacz                -     3 129      

 

The point allocations for ranking purposes allows for -


*    gaining of points depending of the round reached in  tournaments  by playing players;


*    loss of points  when not playing.  


That could result in -


*     Rublev and Berrettini moving into the number 5 and 6 positions in the ranking system;and


*    Federer dropping to below 10 in the rankings.
