Oldest Player In Rankings

How old do you think is the oldest player in the ATP rankings.
Are there any players in their 40s who play futures and are ranked outside the top 500?

Rodolphe Gilbert is into top 1000, got a WC for a future that starts tomorrow in France and is 40. I don't know if he is the oldest though.

Cyril Suk played until his 42nd I believe.

He played doubles until 40, but his last singles ranking was when he was 30.

Alexander Pfann

Not sure if he's the oldest, though.

Martin Sinner should be ranked. He was playing qualifying of a crap challenger while coaching Abdukhalikov and got lucky.

Yeah, Sinner is ranked 1008, ended up losing to Puerto in that challenger you mentioned, but that was in 2008, he hasn't played in 2009.

Among active old guys Dick Norman is playing some great tennis at 38, just made the French Open doubles final and is still playing some singles. I don't think there are any active players older than that who're doing better.
