How is it possible to be in top 20 without winning a single tourney in 2011 ?
You don't have to win something to get points.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Is it that hard to search facts before posting? He won Vienna 2004 when it was 500 tournament.

Ask Berdych.

Anyway, he did win a challenger () title this year and he had some good results in clay season and Shanghai, as well as some solid wins in the slams.

Nah at the time what is MTF's problem? Doesn't he have nice enough attacking game? Oh guys!! He did enough for top 20 in this year.

Never ever give up

Lopez's Shanghai semi is worth more points than an Almagro 250 win. Even world number three Federer hasn't won a title since the beginning of January.

Re: 30-year-old Lopez for first time in Top 20

really deserved for feli, since i started watching tennis always wonder how he did not have more titles and big performances in GS slam.

btw he did win a title this year, it was Bogota one of the biggest tournaments of the season.
