Safin will end the year at #16

Marat Safin will lose an additional 200 points from last years TMC so his ranking will go down to #16 in the entry rankings, this is granted that Robredo doesn't win his quarterfinal match aganist Ljubicic and Stepanek does not make the final. If that does happen, he could be ranked as low as #18. Think about that, that would mean as the 16th seed (or lower) for the Australian Open, Safin could draw Federer, Roddick, Nadal or Hewitt as early as the fourth round.

I just thought it was funny how the defending Australian Open champion will most likely be seeded outside the top 15 for the Australian.

Hewitt could also end the year at #8 if he does not participate in the TMC or he goes winless in Shanghai.

poor Marat

I hope he can recover and could defend his points of AO next year

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Re: Safin will end the year at #16

Now that you mention the AO. A first round loss there for Marat (knowing Marat that's very possible) would drop him down somewhere around #75 in the entry ranking.

Ouch.

He'll be able to rebound. Won't be easy, but if that would happen to him, it's possible. JCF did a pretty good job of it this year.

When Marat came back in AO 2004 after his wrist injury he started around #75 in the entry ranking and finished the year #4 .... Everything is possible and IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!!!

This is a major blow to the seeded players.
Roger of all players wouldn't be happy to draw Safin in the opening rounds, be it whatever surface.

The important thing is to come back healthy, then he will take care of the rating.

Re: Safin will end the year at #16

Ranking is irrelevant, especially when it comes to playing without pain in his knee.

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".
