Re: Official Race to the Barclays World Tour finals, London - daily updates

Did this feature at this stage last year, and seeing as Felipe has fallen off a cliff (well, hopefully that hasn't actually happened...), I'm happy to take over the mantle. But big thanks to him, and to duong, in particular, for the updates throughout this season.

Like a few others on here, I have been updating a spreadsheet over the course of the year...I will cover top 50 in this thread, of course taking into account results at challenger level and above. But feel free to quiz myself and others on the position(s) of your favourite(s) if they aren't listed.

I will also do a mini-feature for each of the major names (probably just top 15) - basically just a couple of lines of information on the kind of results each player needs to boost their chances of qualifying for London/moving up into a key ranking position (e.g. top 3).

Inevitably, there will probably be a few discrepancies with other posters' calculations...hopefully shouldn't be anything major, but it would be cool to work through any problems, together, where they arise.

All contributions, whether to lend a helping hand or just to cheer on your favourite player, are very welcome.

Not an enormous amount of exciting action going on in the next 10 days, but there is no question that the tournaments after that will take on significant importance for a number of players. Let's get this show on the road...

Re: Official Race to the Barclays World Tour finals, London - daily updates

I´m tired of Lapentti bandwagon. Tall russians with big serve and mother training are always cool.

But let´s not troll in the thread I´ma fraid of infractions and 1984.
