This year, not last year. They were citing 2005 results. Marat won last year.

Re: New ATP Big 4

Thanks for showing us in color the huge chasm separating Nos. 1 and 2 from Nos. 3 and 4. So much for depth in men's tennis.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: New ATP Big 4

Nalbandian won Munich in 2005 too and I don't know if Ljubicic won another title, just by his own.

Re: New ATP Big 4

roger

the new big 4 vs old big 4...

the old big 4 were all former/current no.1.., with at least one GS each...

the new one, only roger is/has been the no.1
only roger and rafa have won GS...

so the old big 4 in general were better.....

I didn't mean to say that DC is not worthy, what I wanted to know was if he had won a single title in 2005.

Re: New ATP Big 4

Big? Ljubicic and Federer not at all. Any pics of Nalby and Nadal ?

Re: New ATP Big 4

I don't feel that we presently have a "big 4" as we did with Roger, Andy, Lleyton and Marat. I feel we have a "Big 2": Roger and Rafa.

Well, if you rate success by ATP points, Madrid and Paris TMS finals were more important than his titles in Metz and Vienna. I'm sure everyone agrees that his indoors streak was really AMAZING last year:

Metz, France
International Series, 3-Oct-05, I, Hard , Draw: 32

R32 Acasuso, Jose (ARG) 58 7-6(2) 6-3
R16 Santoro, Fabrice (FRA) 80 4-6 6-1 7-6(3)
Q Soderling, Robin (SWE) 43 6-7(6) 6-3 6-4
S Davydenko, Nikolay (RUS) 7 6-1 6-4
W Monfils, Gael (FRA) 45 7-6(7) 6-0

Vienna, Austria
International Series Gold, 10-Oct-05, I, Hard , Draw: 32

R32 Calleri, Agustin (ARG) 61 6-4 6-3
R16 Haas, Tommy (GER) 40 6-3 6-4
Q Gonzalez, Fernando (CHI) 20 6-3 7-5
S Robredo, Tommy (ESP) 18 7-6(5) 6-4
W Ferrero, Juan Carlos (ESP) 22 6-2 6-4 7-6(5)

ATP Masters Series Madrid, Spain
Tennis Masters Series, 17-Oct-05, I, Hard , Draw: 48

R64 Bye, () N/A
R32 Martin, Alberto (ESP) 54 6-3 7-6(7)
R16 Rochus, Olivier (BEL) 24 6-4 6-4
Q Gonzalez, Fernando (CHI) 19 4-6 7-6(2) 6-4
S Nalbandian, David (ARG) 9 6-3 3-6 6-3
F Nadal, Rafael (ESP) 2 6-3 6-2 3-6 4-6 6-7(3)

ATP Masters Series Paris, France
Tennis Masters Series, 31-Oct-05, I, Carpet , Draw: 48

R64 Bye, () 0
R32 Blake, James (USA) 24 6-3 6-4
R16 Johansson, Thomas (SWE) 15 6-3 7-6(4)
Q Robredo, Tommy (ESP) 21 7-6(6) 3-6 6-1
S Roddick, Andy (USA) 3 6-3 7-5
F Berdych, Tomas (CZE) 50 3-6 4-6 6-3 6-4 4-6

ALL that in just one month!

VERY tough draws, don't you think? (he almost deserved easier draw here in RG)
