I think I have two PINs. What can I do?
If a player has two or more PINs on the AIG Tennis Database, these can be merged to the primary PIN (i.e. the PIN they are using). All ranking points on the secondary (merged) PIN will be credited to the player’s primary PIN automatically once requested. To request this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ’merge PINs’ including the following details in the email: Player Name, Primary PIN, Secondary PIN and contact phone.
