(Ranking Watch) Bouncing around

I couldn't find a ranking watch thread in the last few pages (guess even we're not that masochistic), so I decided to start a ranking "peek and look away, check back later" thread.

As of Monday, August 21, Marat is ranked 104 (probably his temperature in degrees Fahrenheit when playing Whitehouse ). He has no points to defend until late February, and so from here on out it should--should--only get better. In theory, we should have only good news to report here for the foreseeable future.

Next stop, top 100!

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Re: The Baby Steps, Top 10 Watch Out! Ranking Peek and Look Away, Check Back Later Thread

It's almost weird that he's still 104 with no points to defend for the next 5 months. I mean, it's not like he has done much this year.
(yes, that was optimism)

The only way is UP, Marat!!

I checked! And if he wins the US Open, he'd get 1000 points, adding to the 400 he already has, he'd have a total of 1400. That means Top 20, about place number 18!

Re: The Baby Steps, Top 10 Watch Out! Ranking Peek and Look Away, Check Back Later Thread

OMG it would be so great... You know it's cruel to make me hope like that !

"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
