Can you change it back so that we don't need to have one week delay for the rest of the season? thanks
There is nothing to change i.e check seasons 2009 and 2012 (the one where they changed the points breakdown and Olympics year.
In 2009 they wouldn't have to defend the same amount of points than they would've if ATP didn't change the point breakdown hence they would earn more or less points despite reaching the same round than the tournament they played 52 weeks before. Usually less points because they doubled the to-defend points and it wasn't exactly the case for the to-earn points.
And in 2012 they had completely different tournaments so the same was happening for some time in the season, if you had a M1000 in a certain week in 2011, you had a 500 now in 2012 so whatever you did, you'd lose at least 500 points
Real calendar and ATP calendar were out-of-date by 1 week and that's just that.
Unless I missed the point of this
