Well, somebody's got to be ranked in those spots, and I'd rather be #4 than #14, even if I don't come close to comparing to the very top ranked players. I just think it speaks of the depth in men's tennis.

Re: Madrid has shown what a joke #s 3-10 is in the ATP

let me see:

#3 Ljubo - No words really, but Murray has the talent to certainly beat anyone and when on top of his game and believing in himself he can certainly beat the best.

#4 Nalby - Been an enigma all season. Ok results grinds his matches out somehow has a knack coming back when he looks finished. bad year in general for him. Not a good match against benneteau but was in-form and struggling versus an in-form Henman.

#5 Davydenko - Good all year. Nothing wrong with him. He ran into a guy who has an awesome serve. Had two mental lapses in which he got broken and caused his loss. Look at his results. Gets deep in almost every tourney.

#6 Roddick - Playing well and got injured nothing more you can say here. I hope he gets better.

#7 Blake - Hit the wall after playing alot of tourney's. Traditionally he's never done well in Madrid so losing to a player like Vliegen isn't terrible. Vliegen has shown some nice glimpses all year.

#8 Robredo - Been struggling for a bit and ran into Ginepri who's playing well at the moment. I see nothing wrong with his loss.

#9 Baggy - Lost to a hot Safin at the moment. Baggy hasn't been playing well but once again nothing wrong with the loss.

#10 Gonzo - Plays well consistently and he's still alive in the tourney.


**** In general I don't agree with what you're saying. Are #3-10 worse then years past probably but these guys lost to good players and not to journeymen.

Re: Madrid has shown what a joke #s 3-10 is in the ATP

Thats such a stupid reason to sa that theyre all jokes. Last time, people whined and complained abot the draw and possibilities of uncle toni playing around with the draw and now the draw is COMPLETLY fair so of course there will be upsets. Take a look at the second round matches.

At the moment, roger PLEAASSEE!!! :'(

Nadal~Federer~Baghdatis~Tursonov

Gonzo-Safin-Hewitt-Robredo-Verdasco-Moya-Nalbandian-Roddick-Kolya

Either that, or it shows that there is so much quality in the top 50 today that you can't afford a bad day anymore. :shrugs:

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

But the "weak era" theorists will always dismiss that line of reasoning however logical it may be...

Need ideas for a new signature...

yes, and I like it it's much more interesting than all the top players beating the lower ranked ones all the time

I support a lot of mugs.

So when they lose, they are a joke, but when they win....it's what? Obviously they have won the most to be there in the 3-10 spots.

Amazing, if there were no upsets people would be bitching that it's too boring, the same guys win all the time. Then when there are upsets people whine about the top 10-20 being weak.
