Re: 1346 - ATP Race Point new record

Let's not forget, there's still the Master's Cup, two more TMS events and room for 2 optionals.
This is going to be a race point total that's likely to stay in the record books for a while.
Of course we said the same last year.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

If he reaches 1600, he'll have 8k points in the entry ranking.
In order to do that, he has to win Tokyo, either Madrid or Paris, reach R 16 in the other TMS, win Basel and reach the final in Shanghai. Looks difficult, but not impossible.

Re: 1346 - ATP Race Point new record

He is something special.

Glad to see in the letters column of the most recent Sports Illustrated that they published a letter (actually I belive it is the second- the first was after W 2005) where someone asked when are you going to put who could very well be the very best freaking male tennis player ever on the cover (this was after they had Ohio Sate as the main pic, and Mash as a wee pic after the USO).

I like a lot of players.

He would like get more titles (especially GS) rather than records.

Not really. I mean even Vilas proved how much of a Fedtard he was

Did they respond to that letter or did they just print it?

They just printed it. Editor's responses in SI are quite rare.

Re: 1346 - ATP Race Point new record

I see. Well, at least we know that they are aware of the fact that there are peopl outside who would like to have a SI tennis cover, preferably Roger, but I think it would also be okay if they had Andy or Rafa on the cover, just to put the sport in the focus of a larger audience.
