Top 25 updated to SF stage...apologies for the delay.
As you will see, there have been no "new entrants" to the top 10 this week, with Karlovic needing to win the title (unlikely) to buck the trend. Anyway, taking a closer look, it is fairly apparent who the "major earner" is...Muzza's SF appearance sees him leapfrog Ferrer into #5, and a win over Karlovic, today, would see him bear down on the out-of-form Davydenko at #4...so competition for the #4 position looks to be very much on (unless Kolya finds his range damn quick), from here on in. Roger's early defeat has allowed Rafa to claim the coveted #1 position in the official rankings (which week has yet to be decided), and with a lead of nearly 400 Race points over his nearest rival (could be as many as 430+ should he win the title) you have to wonder if the Race to the year-end #1 position is practically over.
Away from the top 10, there have been 3 "new entrants" to the top 25, with Kohlschreiber awaking from a recent slump of form, Tursunov continuing his better form, and, notably, Karlovic surprising with a SF run, which sees him move up to #18, and in with a chance of a further rise to #13 should be beat Murray, today.
