Bjorkman/Mirnyi take over as #1 team

Stanford ATP Doubles Team Race has been re-ordered as Bjorkman/Mirnyi overtake Bryans. The twins were only 7 points behind at the beginning of this week, but fell in the SFs to Hanley/Ullyett while B/M took out Knowles/Nestor (Mark's baby is the cutest in the world!).

Nice to see a fresh team at the top

Re: Bjorkman/Mirnyi take over as #1 team

Indeed nice to see those jokers not number 1 anymore, although it is only bjorkman so I use that in the loosest sense (bjorkman being number 1, hardly nice )

Re: Bjorkman/Mirnyi take over as #1 team

Great to see them back at #1. I wonder how long it will last? Jonas seems to be inadvertantly focusing on doubles lately His chances of getting deeped in the draw are greater

I've heard a lot of jokes about Bjorkman's singles ability. Apparently, he wasn't that good. Can anyone tell me more? Does he really suck that bad?

Re: Bjorkman/Mirnyi take over as #1 team

He doesn't suck that bad. At least, he hasn't in the past. He's won titles in singles... The last 12 months haven't been great for him in singles, but he's gotten to #4 in the world in the 90's. He doesn't have a lot of form right now, and seems to be excelling more in the doubles field. But this isn't a bad thing at all, considering he is 34
