Re: safin is #3 now ?

Very simple equation.

- Roddick made the QFs last year, he lost in the 1st round this year.
- Hewitt made the final in 04 and lost in the semis.
- Safin lost in the 1st round in 04, and didn't play this year.

This means Safin had the smallest loss of points compared to Hewitt and Roddick and was able to take over their spot in the Entry Rankings.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I love the entry system!

"This is not about class, colour or races,
let’s get around and see different places,
put a smile on those distant faces,
wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress

The entry system, I mean.

Re: safin is #3 now ?

Gotta love a system that allows a guy to move up 2 spots in the rankings without hitting a ball

Well done Marat, what a star

Re: safin is #3 now ?

Actually Marat might drop back down next week, didn't he win Beijing last year?
