Banzuke for the French Open 2009

Here is how the top players line up:
  • Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer as Yokozuna (=Grand Champions)
  • Novak Djokovic as Ozeki (=Champion)
  • Andy Roddick (a former Ozeki) as Sekiwake (=Junior Champion I)
  • Andy Murray (a former Sekiwake), Fernando Verdasco and Juan Martin del Potro as Komusubi (=Junior Champions II)

The top Maegashira (=non-champion) ranks are filled by:
  • Gilles Simon and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (former Sekiwake) at M1
  • Nikola Davydenko (former Sekiawke) and Gael Monfils (former Komusubi) at M2, and
  • Fernando Gonzalez (former Sekiwake) and Marin Cilic at M3

No player is on a Yokozuna run. Roddick, Murray and Verdasco could get promoted to Ozeki if they reach the final; Tsonga, Simon, del Potro and all former grand slam champions if they win the tournament.

For a more extensive preview--also of the ladies' tournament--and the full Banzuke follow the link in my signature.

Re: Banzuke for the French Open 2009

Results thus far:

-- Djokovic goes Kadoban (remains Ozeki but will lose the rank if he misses the quarterfinals at Wimbledon)

-- Murray is back at Sekiwake, Roddick drops to Komusubi

-- del Potro has defended his Komusubi rank; if he wins his quarterfinal over Robredo he gets promted to Sekiwake

-- Verdasco drops out of the Sanyaku (=Champions') ranks.

-- the quarterfinal between Soderling and ex-Sekiwake Davydenko will produce a new Sankyaku-ranked players (probably Komusubi)

Murray has all of a sudden a pretty decent chance to become the 29th Ozeki of the open era -- all he needs is reaching the final, which seems quite possible after Nadal's exit. Del Potro would become Ozeki if he wins the tournament.

Re: Banzuke for the French Open 2009

will Roger's rank change if he wins the tournament? I know he's already a Dai-Yokozuna, but I want to know if there's a bigger rank over that one

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Banzuke for the French Open 2009

The sanyaku-ranks post Roland Garros are taking shape:

Yokozuna: Federer, Nadal
Ozeki: Djokovic (kadoban, hence could be demoted at Wimbledon). Del Potro has a small chance to get to Ozeki, but he would need to win the tournament
Sekiwake: Murray, del Potro (if he doesn't win the tournament), and the winner of Soderling vs. Gonzalez
Komusubi: Roddick, and the loser of Soderling vs. Gonzalez

Verdasco demoted to Maegashira.
