Re: "Roddick moves up rankings despite not playing" - Idiotic article!

This I agree with.. if a player has clearly expressed that he has retired, needs to be taken from rankings, it is unfair they just hog a spot for no reason. Roddick is retired, why just keep him there without reason, ATP should let a player sign a waiver or something saying he is retired, so he can be removed from active ranking list.
