Andy Murray Uses Protected Ranking To Enter ATP Cup

Great Britain will compete in January’s inaugural ATP Cup following Andy Murray’s late decision to enter.

Britain may not have qualified for the 24-team event had Murray not entered under his protected world ranking of two.

Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are also in the field for the new tournament, which will be played across three Australian cities.

The draw takes place at the Sydney Opera House on Monday.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray said in January that he planned to retire after this year’s Wimbledon after struggling to recover from hip surgery.

The Scot went on to return to the court in time to feature at Wimbledon, where he eventually played mixed doubles with Serena Williams.

Murray missed out on returning for the US Open, choosing to play in the Winston-Salem Open instead, where he lost to Tennys Sandgren in the first round.

The ATP Cup, which carries 750 ranking points, is separate from the Davis Cup but could amalgamate with that tournament after it is revamped, according to International Tennis Federation president David Haggerty.

What is protected ranking?

Protected ranking is a system by which tennis players are helped by the ATP when they are returning from long-term injury.

When players are injured for a minimum of six months, they can request protected ranking. Since ranking points expire after a year, one injury can all but strip players of their career’s work.

The player can use their protected ranking for a limited number of times to enter tournaments’ main draws when returning from injury when their reduced official ranking is insufficient.

Protected ranking is calculated on their average ranking during the first three months of the injury, which in Andy Murray’s case is number 2.
