Why is Marat up to 3rd in the world while he didn't play USO ?

Is it the 5th optional result ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

There is already a thread on this.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Roddick and Hewitt had a lot more points to defend and they failed to do so.

Safin went from a first round loss to a pullout. -5 points.

Hewitt went from a final to a semifinal. -250 points.

Roddick went from a quarterfinal to a first round exit. -245 points.

OK thanks, I didn't think Hewitt would lose so many points from not reaching the finals. G. W. Hitler I didn't see the other thread. I hope Marat will maintain this ranks but it's gonna be tough...

It's not because someone misses a tournament he can't have a high ranking. He won Aus open = 1000 points and Madrid and Paris each 500 points!
