Post Prediction: Youzhny and Verdasco will reach WTF!!!!

WTF is in 2 months, and there are a few more tournaments until then.

Nadal, Federer, Murray, Soderling and Djokovic have already pretty much sealed their places.
Berdych is pretty much a done deal too.
Question is, who fills the other 2 spots?
Roddick, Verdasco, Ferrer and Youzhny are the 4 closest to the spots, and the final two will come from them.
I think, out of those 4, Verdasco and Youzhny will reach the draw.
Roddick is pretty shit atm, and Ferrer isn't as good on hard as Nando or Mikhail.

The line up will be, in order:

1. Nadal
2. Federer
3. Djokovic
4. Murray
5. Soderling
6. Berdych
7. Verdasco
8. Youzhny

First 6 pretty much made already, the other 2 are still to really be determined.

Discuss....

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 2 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 630-174...
TITLES: 44 and counting...

Re: Prediction: Youzhny and Verdasco will reach WTF!!!!

It's not the top 8 who get through automatically!

I was reading about it some weeks ago, although I've forgotten some it it now

It's the top 7 and then if there is a GS winner, who is not in the top 7, but in top 20, they get the no. 8 place.

I can probably find it on the internet somewhere again...

If Youzhny were to win US Open, I think he gets a place

He would be safely in the top 8 if he won anyway.

Re: Prediction: Youzhny and Verdasco will reach WTF!!!!

There's a big gap in the race between Ferrer who is currently at #9 and Melzer who is at #10, so I think it's probably likely that one of them will make it. I have a feeling Roddick will withdraw.

edit... he'll be ranked no. 11

Really? I didn't know that

Surely, if the only GS winners are in the top 4, let's say, then the top 8 by the end of the year get in?

Melzer will be 300 pints behind Youzhny in the race at least, come Monday. So I don't think he'll make it.

BTW, I forgot about Melzer, he is a candidate as well.
Of course!! - it will be top 8 if high ranked players win GS's

Melzer will be ranked no. 13 on Monday, I believe

http://www.barclaysatpworldtourfinal...out/Rules.aspx

There's the entry rules, para B

I always assumed top 8, just like you, till I started looking at the rules a while ago!!

I wonder when the last time a GS was won by a player lower than rank 7...

WC Goran Ivanisovic - Wimbledon??

I can't be bothered to look it up

Was it anything to do with sponsors..?

There was a sponsor who got into some financial difficulty, I think the race was under their name.. can't think of it right now

Re: Prediction: Youzhny and Verdasco will reach WTF!!!!

They probably stopped doing it just to simplify everything, like they renamed the tournaments MS1000 and ATP250/500, just to make it easier for a new or casual tennis follower. I'd imagine going on the website and seeing the rankings and then the race was a bit confusing for people. No one really cared about it until Paris normlly anyway.
