You were close.

Thanks a lot for that, and I think it would make a difference to a couple of the positions.

Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

Standings now updated to Rome final, and Stan cements his place in the top 10 of both rankings lists.

Also updated the Croatia and Italy battles. Karlovic leapfrogged Ljubicic and Cilic into #2, Seppi overtook Volandri into #2, and Bolelli has now managed to extend his lead by 29 points.

Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

Well, Roger really blew it. Not only does Nole re-take the Race lead, but he also opens up a HUGE gap from Federer - 186pts! Honourable mention to Stan the Man, who has consolidated a top 10 place.

All eyes switch to Hamburg now, and we begin with a list of guys who will be recording "nul points" for skipping this event: Roddick, Nalbandian, Baghdatis, Gonzalez, Hewitt, Ferrero, Stepanek and Haas.

Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

Apologies for the delay...top 25 has now been updated. Will update the Croatian and Italian Race battles later on.

Done.

Race updated to the SF stages, which also includes my feature on selected Race battles.

I think Roger will need to pray a little bit today...needs Rafa to halt Nole's progress, not only so he can take a small bite of Nole's huge lead, but also so Rafa can remain #2 seed in Paris.

Like last year. He woke up in second part of season.

I could see him being there. I mean, if you were to remove Tsonga from that group, could you name two players that are likely to bump him out of the top 8 by the end of the year? I can't say I can, and there is no-one in the immediate vicinity, yet, to really challenge his position.

Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

I'm surprised that with Federer's abysmal year that he's still #3 in the race. Once he starts winning events, he'll blow up and take the lead. Just wait.

Maybe Roger can win Roland Garros.......
