There is a BIG difference between depression and reality.
I'm thrilled that Tommy is able to play at all which is far, far from depression. However, I know his chances at winning the U.S. Open are about as good as me becoming richer than Bill Gates. Trust me it just isn't going to happen However, depending on the draw he can still pick up wins and we can still watch him play

No offense, but reality is not he can't beat Del Potro, he's not even a big guy yet. It's depressing reading lamentations about his age and shoulder problems, combined with assessments that the time to win anything of relevance is over. Like I said, Goran was in worse situation in every respect and he went to win a GS, beating on the way many guys I'm sure you'd equally proclaim unbeatable for him at the time. It was not my intention to imply Tommy will necessarily win one too, but just that stranger things have ahppened and we really don't know. Tommy doesn't seem like a delusional guy to me, so if he says he can compete with the truly big guys, it is my opinion his fans should respect that.

The reality was exactly as I said. Del Potro defeated Tommy. In fact he not only defeated Tommy he beat him badly Did I say that Tommy would never ever defeat Del Potro--no. I said there was no way Tommy was going to defeat him in the Tournament's thread we were posting in. And I was right. MTF is not just for those of us who post here. If you will notice by the post and view counts, far more people read here than post here. So I will continue to post with the reality of Tommy's situation in any given Tournament . Am I always right--no. And when I'm wrong I'll say so. In fact I was badly wrong about the L.A. Tournament. I thought Tommy was going to do very well there and yet he lost in the 1st Rd You know if you don't like seeing my posts you can always put me on your ignore list. That way you won't even see them.

Re: Ranking Watch-fighting his way back up?

Re: Ranking Watch-fighting his way back up?

Sorry, but I didn't get your point? What do you mean by "seeded at US Open"?
Next week he'll be #38 if you mean that...

Haas on his way back

Re: Ranking Watch-fighting his way back up?

Well, he isn't "ranked" specifically at the Open. He isn't seeded and thus just gets drawn against one seed. Apart from that, as of this week, he is #39 in the ATP ranking and #57 in the race.

Entry list is always based on earlier rankings than seeds, that's way he appears as 40-something in the entry list. No seeding in any case and not much luck with the draw

Yeah, don't get why they do this, since it doesn't matter anyway and doesn't influence the drawing (I think).

Re: Ranking Watch-fighting his way back up?

^^ I think it's because of qualies, they need to determine who enters directly and who is eligible for qualifications earlier. Seeds can be determined shortly before the draw.

Re: Ranking Watch-on the way back down :-(

I thought since it was mentioned in another thread I would go ahead and post it in here. Plus change the thread title again to a more positive note As of 2/2/09 according to the ATP Site Tommy's ranking is now up to 65


EDIT: I forgot to add that is up 14 positions
Just think what it might have been had he not had to face Nadal in the 3rd Rd

Re: Ranking Watch-on the way back up again :-)

He has IW QF and practically nothing else to defend till Wimbledon, so any good results should mean a rise in hte rankings
