Question Nalbandian too high in ranking?

Look he is just 23/10 this year and apart from winning Munich and QF in Melbourne and Wimbledon he hasn't achieved anything good, lots of early and shocking exits and still he is 12 on rankings...

Re: Nalbandian too high in ranking?

well he barely plays a tornament and yet he is top 10 that is not so bad

but he made qf in australia, 4th round in FO and qf in wimbledon.

his ranking is ok. a qf in a grand slam is more difficult and valuable than a title in a small tournament

Re: Nalbandian too high in ranking?

You see I just doubt it... I don't mean I hate David or somethin' like that but compare himself to anyother guy from Top 10 like Gaudio, Puerta, Coria There is a huge difference between them...

Re: Nalbandian too high in ranking?

It's correct - he had good tournaments last October: RUP in Madrid and RUP in Basel.
Also 4th round at RG-2005 - not bad for ranking.

And in Champion's Race he's 19th only...

BTW I'm sure that Nalb's talent can allow him to be in top5 firmly...

That's what I've wondered about. Was it a virus which affected his liver, or was it because of chugging down the old bottle which affected his liver? I don't know.
Anyways, it is a 12 month calendar ranking system and it's more understandable than Hingis still being ranked #1 back in 2001. Now what was THAT all about?!

Re: Nalbandian too high in ranking?

It was a virus he caught in a plane and made his dizzy and brought him some stomach problems as well. It lasted over a month, but he hasn't had any injury this year.
As for his ranking, he's got what he deserves.

Re: Nalbandian too high in ranking?

Well WTA is a strange Assosiation 4 me Let's don't talk about it
MAybe Hingis was still #1 because she had a big difference in points which finally ended in 2001

Hingis was #1 because the other slam winners didn't play enough/win enough tournaments that she did so she always held that top spot.

Anyways David is ranked where he should be, when you look at exactly where he got his points from (was really good at the slams this year and still has a TMS finals under his belt) the ranking he has isn't that big of a shock.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas
