Re: Quarterfinalists' avarage ranking played

Djokovic.



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

Re: Quarterfinalists' avarage ranking played

Ljubicic has the easiest path into the semis in a Grand Slam in recent memory, but hey, he's taking advantage and getting the job done.

Haters will be haters. Mario has really blossomed this clay season. Taking out Robredo was impressive.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Quarterfinalists' avarage ranking played

Davydenko had a couple of former champs.. Sounds like the toughest draw to me.. Other than that .. nothing remarkable..

Davydenko's draw is altogether very tough. Assuming he were to win the title he would likely have to beat:

Moya, Gaudio, Nalbandian, Federer, Nadal

Of course, chances are he won't beat all those guys but that's a tough draw. 5 top quality opponents.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Am I saying anyhting bad about it. I'm just saying they had it easier than Djokovic or Davydenko for example. I know it's a great run for Ancic but other than that match he had it relatively easy. You are the haters I didn't said they didn't deserved it!

Re: Quarterfinalists' avarage ranking played

Ranking here and in Wimbledon doesn't mean so much as in the other grand slams, it's about who is good player on clay! But interesting stats!

Maybe a more effective measure would be to take an average or rankings points, then write down the ranking of the player who would be at those rankings. For example, with federer:

Hartfield: 265
Falla: 309
Massu: 885
Berdych: 1390
Total: 2849
Avg: 712.25
Rank: 56

vs. Ancic

Healey: 205
Capdeville: 355
Montañes: 411
Robredo: 2020
Total: 2991
Avg: 747.75
Rank: 53


This way, the significance of beating a top ten player (Robredo) has more weight than the fact that Ancic had players ranked in the top 200 instead of Federer's top 100, since both players probably have almost an equally low chance of causing difficulty for a top player. Note however that they are close because Massu + Berdych about equals a Robredo plus a low ranked player. This way, the higher ranked opponents dictate the strength of draw calculation. In otherwords, the difference between 110 and 100 should be less than the difference between playing 20 vs 10, and this rankings based calculation does that. I don't have the time or will do to the others, but feel free to do so.
