How in the world did this happen? Well, it's complicated in the sense that the ATP rankings are insane and make no sense.


Is this guy actually a journalist? Fuck me, you don't even need to know shit to work on a proper sports channel anymore. New low for Eurosport.

Fedfan and Roddick fan care more about real life's problems, but they're in this thread? Too bad no one cares what fake amusement they feel.

Poor Roddick. At least he's not getting paid for doing nothing this time.

Come back, Andeeee... Djoker's waitin' for you.

Why are you being like this, are you kidding me right now.

Yes the 100th ranked player should be 99th but he's still the 99th player in line to get entry into tournaments since Roddick isn't playing so no oppurtunity lost.

Yes like you said the player should notify the ATP in writing when they want to retire, this is something Roddick has not done, he hasn't put it in writing like Ljubicic did when he retired and was immediately removed from the rankings.

In this day and age a verbal agreement is rarely binding, even though it should be. Roddick has not put it n writing that he is retiring, maybe he wanted to leave himself open to maybe playing this year sometime if he felt like he missed tennis I don't know.

If Litotes is correct and Roddick has sent his retirement in writing to the ATP then he will be removed shortly as he should.

A player has the right to say he's retiring all the while keeping his deserved ranking if he wants to come back. When said player decides he doesn't want that ranking then he has the right to remove it.

Boyth scenarios no oppurtunities are lost so who cares
maybe he was shrewd enough to have a sponsor contract where they have to keep paying him so long as he's top 50. Can you imagine, milking it for a few extra months on a technicality?

Roddick is going to have a go at Wimbledon 2014. My sources tell me. He wants to reach the second round.

Re: "Roddick moves up rankings despite not playing" - Idiotic article!

This I agree with.. if a player has clearly expressed that he has retired, needs to be taken from rankings, it is unfair they just hog a spot for no reason. Roddick is retired, why just keep him there without reason, ATP should let a player sign a waiver or something saying he is retired, so he can be removed from active ranking list.

LOL, it is like other jobs, it's not like when you say i resign from the job, that's it, you need to file proper paperworks. People forget it's a job as well. And i don't get the he is taking opportunities for other players he not taking anyone's spot in the entry lists.

Re: "Roddick moves up rankings despite not playing" - Idiotic article!

he isnt taking any opportunities from other players, it just means in reality 50 becomes 49 etc just the same as when piggy was injured every 6 months with reoccurring nail aches

Re: "Roddick moves up rankings despite not playing" - Idiotic article!

I'm surprised you make a big deal of it, in the majority of the sports in the world it would be extremely bizarre and random for a retired player to gain ranking status after leaving the sport....

it's interesting for sure. granted if you're a tennis fan it's just common sense, but in many sports if you retire you are entirely taken off the ranking and/or it is impossible for you to move up unless you are actively preforming in games

it is fascinating that this can occur in tennis

He filed for retirement last week and should be out of the rankings by next week
