Re: Champions race standing - updated Monday

With his win over Ferrero in the opening match on Monday, Nalbandian closed the gap from Moya in 7th place to 24 pts, but he still needs 2 more wins in the RR stage, or a win in the semifinal, to overtake him.

Ferrero's loss leaves him 26 pts behind Rodick, who can increase the gap to 46 points if he beat Moya tommorrow, but more important, Ferrero is now one loss away from elimination from the tournament, and subsequently from the race to #1 spot.

In the next match, Federer must win to keep his slim chance for #1 alive, and extend the gap from 4th place Coria to 99 pts, and put himself beyond Agassi's reach, so he can finish the year no lower than 5th (in fact, he is allready guarantied that, as both Agassi and Schuetler can't win the tournament). If Agassi win, he will get closer to Coria in 4th place and further from Schuettler in 6th, and retain his slim chance to overtake Federer in 3rd place.

You mean two people can't win? Damn!

Seriously though thanks for the updates. Appreciate your research and number-crunching!

Re: Champions race standing - updated Monday

Federer's thrilling win over Agassi has left him in the race for #1, but this could be over by this time tommorrow if Roddick beat Moya.
As previousely said, Agassi can no longer overtake Federer, and in order to pass Coria in 5th place he must reach the final, since 2 wins in his remaining RR matches will only bring him within 1 point of Coria. If Coria lose tommorrow to Schuettler, he will have to win the title to overtake Federer, so it seems Fed-Ex is almost certain to remain in 3rd place. Win for schuettler tommorrow will lift him above Agassi to 5th place, and maintain his mathematical chance to overtake Federer. If he loses, then like Agassi he will have to reach the final to overtake Coria, a very tough task considering that he will have to beat Roddick just to reach the semi.
If Moya somehow manage to beat Roddick tommorrow, he will regain his 44 pts lead over Nalbandian, and force David to reach the final to advance to 7th place.
At least for the next 2 days, the only possible change in the ranking is between Agassi and Shuettler...

Re: Champions race standing - updated Tuesday: Schuettler goes to #5!

Schuettler's win over Coria in the 1st match on Tuesday put him above Agassi in a carreer-high #5 position, and reledgated Andre to 6th.
Schuettler is now 25 pts behind Coria, and in order to overtake him he should win 2 more matches in RR stage (against Roddick and Moya) or the semifinal. Schuettler also has a mathematical chance to overtake Federer in 3rd place, but that requires that he wins the title undefeated and Federer lose all his remaining matches.
Coria must now win the title to overtake Federer, and Fed-Ex can guaranty his 3rd place if he wins 2 RR matches or the semifinal.
Fedrerer will know in a few hours if he still has a chance for #1. If Roddick beats Moya, Roger's challenge for the top spot is over.

Re: Champions race standing - updated Tuesday: Schuettler goes to #5!

Roddick extended his lead over Ferrero to 46 pts, but that's not enough yet to be significant. If Ferrero wins all his remaining matches, including the final, he'll be #1 regardless of what Roddick does.
But Roddick's win has officially eliminated Federer from the race to #1. Fed-Ex can still overtake Ferrero and get to #2.
Nothing has changed between Moya and Nalbandian. Nalby still need 2 more wins in the RR stage or win in the semi to overtake Moya.

Too bad that Federer has already lost the chance to race for #1.......

Re: Champions race standing - updated Tuesday: Schuettler goes to #5!

Methinks he really lost it in Montreal ;-)

or there again, the 4th round of the USO, or the semi in Madrid, or the qf in Paris....

Still, he'll have his chances again.

Ferrero better watch out though, another performance like the one the other night and that's goodbye to number one for him as well.

Re: Champions race standing - updated Tuesday: Schuettler goes to #5!

I'd like to see Fed get a win in against Nalbandian. I don't really care for them both that much but seeing Federer's mental anguish against him is still heart-breaking lol.

Re: Champions race standing - updated Tuesday: Schuettler goes to #5!

Federer's one-sided win over Nalbandian has strenghen his position in 3rd place. Schuettler can no longer overtake him, and Coria must win all his remaining matches to do so. Federer need another win to secure 3rd place. Fed-Ex still have chance to overtake Ferrero in #2: To do so, he should win the title undefeated, and Ferrero must not win more than one match (the evening match today against Agassi). If Ferrero beat Federer in their last RR match, JC guaranties himself the 2nd position.
Nalbandian's loss means he must now get to the final to overtake Moya.

Re: Champions race standing - updated Wednesday: Roddick takes #1!!

Ferrero's loss to Agassi makes him the 1st player eliminated from the semifinals, and since he now can't get more than 20 pts, Roddick's #1 year-end ranking is secured!
Win over Federer tomorrow, however, in an otherwise meaningless match for both players, will secure Ferrero in 2nd place and Federer could not get higher than 3rd.
Meanwhile, Agassi's win put him back in 5th place after just 30 hours behind Schuettler.
Schuettler can be back in 5th place if he beat Roddick in the afternoon, but his stay this time could be even more short if Agassi beat Nalbandian tonight. Both players are still 2 wins away from Coria in 4th place.
Coria plays Moya this afternoon as well, and if he loses, Federer is secured in 3rd place.

Re: Champions race standing - updated Wednesday: Roddick takes #1!!

Now I want Rogi to beat JCF to move closer to the no.2 spot! I wonder how would JCF play after all the things happened in his two previous matches.

Maybe Sampras took over from me and now Federer will take over from Sampras - Edberg


ROGI BOLEH!!!!!!!!!

I hope Ferrero is aware of the importance of the match for him... in an interview after his loss to Agassi he said that he finished in #2... perhaps he doesn't know Federer can still overatke him, and that he (Ferrero) can stop him...
