Re: (Ranking Watch) Baby Steps Took Us Back Into the Top 50--Now We Want a Seed in AO!

Okay dare i say that i live in 75 ?

"When I talk to myself on court, I say, ‘I love you, you're a good guy, but don't miss next time, OK?’” Marat Safin, 2004.
MARAT SAFIN US Open 2006: No, when you're 26, it's difficult to change. You can't teach the old dog to sit, huh? "

When you win, when you lose, when you smile or when you're mad : Marat you're still the best to watch.

"Just give yourself the opportunity, give yourself the chance. You have to
be happy with what you have achieved and don't take any notice if somebody
tells you that you should have achieved much more. You have achieved what
you have achieved. Nobody can take that away and you have a clear
conscience." Marat

Trying to work out the ranking/points systems seems to be beyond me, but am I right in thinking that Marat will need to get to at least the quarter finals at Bercy to get seeded at the AO???

well even if he doesn't, there's still hope...he'll be on the bubble; if a few players in the top 32 withdraw, which they invariably do at the AO each year, he can still grab a seed. that's irrelevant of course b/c he's gonna win this thing.

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

No comment:
Mawie: he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
Maggie Tulliver: and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
Maggie Tulliver: it's a little pathetic
Maggie Tulliver: it's like his first reaction

He could still play a tournament like Doha in January, couldn't he? Anyway, as Marie pointed out, there are always withdrawals.

ETA: Plus I'm not sure he necessarily needs to make the qfs; it depends on how the people around him do.
