Roger Federer (Sui) 4365
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (Fra) 3695
Rafael Nadal (Esp) 3500
David Ferrer (Esp) 2415
Tomas Berdych (Cze) 2250
Mardy Fish (USA) 2180
Janko Tipsarevic (Srb) 2095
John Isner (USA) 1650
Gael Monfils (Fra) 1390
Feliciano Lopez (Esp) 1270
Giles Simon (Fra) 1150
Nicolas Almagro (Esp) 995
Juan Martin Del Porto (Arg) 940
Andy Roddick (USA) 910
Alexandr Dolgopolov (Ukr) 900
Kevin Anderson (RSA) 710
Bernard Tomic (Aus) 675
Carlos Berlocq (Arg) 643
Marcos Baghdatis (Cyp) 625
Stanislas Wawrinka (Sui) 615
Robin Haase (Ned) 590
Richard Gasquet (Fra) 540
David Nalbandian (Arg) 485

If you want to help, then just use the ATP World Tour site and go to a player. Once you find the matches for 2011, count from 11/6/2011

It's not really problem of counting that Nadal had a crapy second half of the year.
(maybe that's why he wants a two year ranking system)

Does it really need to be asked why he wants a two year ranking system?

Re: Road to the London Olympics

Really hope Lopez qualifies, I'd much rather see him playing in London on grass than Almagro, no offense.

Re: Road to the London Olympics

To be eligible for the Olympics, one must play in Davis Cup, right? So, Dolgopolov would likely be ineligible?

I thought it was that you have to 'make yourself available' for Davis Cup; I'm not sure that you have to play. If a team captain uses the same two singles players all the time (and one doubles team), it means only those two singles players can represent that country -- even though they are allowed four? And the other two players might have wanted to play, but the DC captain didn't want them

Thanks, that does make more sense.

That being said Dolgopolov still hasn't made himself available to play on the Ukrainian Davis Cup team so he may not compete

Really, don't be ridiculous. Those aren't somebody's "dream team", they are the players with the most points in the period used in calculations for the Olympics - and it doesn't include this year's clay swing. Quite probably by the end of the next clay swing Nadal will be much higher, but you can't argue against actual results this far.

Re: Road to the London Olympics

Youzhny's coach Sobkin said Mikhail won't play Olympics. He said Misha is too old for this shit.
