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

Another 30-year-old at his peak position: Feliciano Lopez broke into the world's Top 20 for the first time this week.

His previous highest ranking was 21.

Welcome to the Top 20!

Sorry to crash the party, but Lopez was already ranked 20 in January 2005.

Damn! I didn't even realise Lopez was 30! Was thinking more like 28...

An achievement nonetheless. Back in 2005 he was in his theoretical prime. Plus he's a good chance to go above 20th before the end of the year. Lopez has the kind of game that will serve him well in his early 30s.

Good job catman.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

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

It's strange : he's 30 and never won anything great (no 500, no MS)
How is it possible to be in top 20 without winning a single tourney in 2011 ?
