Thanks.
But when I look at this ranking breakdown, I'm seeing that he has already maximised all his points for the 250s...he won 3 of them. He isn't going to gain any more pints for playing or winning more of them ATM.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Dimitrov - Chardy - Berdych

Lol. Good to see Clownga finally admitting he can't hang with the big boys in big tournaments, so he needs to vulture points from MM events.

I don't get what has this talk to do with losing in the 2nd round to Klizan which should be the main subject of the interview

I'm glad I don't have to see that stupid dance of his anymore during the USO. It's so in your face and annoying.

Kind of an odd thing to say right after laying an egg like he did today. His head seems to be all over the place, whether on the court or off.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Just goes to show why there is the top 3 or 4 who really have a shot and all the rest. It's pretty true in most sports there are very few truly top and the rest just tend to be talented dumb jocks. He's pretty much in the later camp.

when and why did this rule change?

do players still get zero pointers for failing to fulfil 500 requirements or what?

He struggles to even win 250 events

He should play challengers IMO.

Does it mean bigger tournaments are not for everyone, it's for 3-4 persons only?
