Me too. In an interview some time ago he said that he won't play any qualies or challengers. If this is the case, he will retire he said...

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

Although it's a sad thing to hear,I can understand not playing Challengers.
Though,I am not sure about quallies,that could also be beneficial..

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

I would play some of these hc challengers until Halle. It's better than playing qualies on clay or taking a long break until grass. But let's wait and see what he'll do. His match today is more important.

Yep, one or two more wins in IW would help very much...

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

lol, Tommy playing challengers ... don't see it. If I'm not mistaken, Tommy played five challangers or something like that at the beginning of his carrer, that was it, ATP tour right away. Boy, what talent ...

However, I'd like to see him play some of these challengers this summer. But I guess he would prefer practice at home.

Playing Nole in the 3rd Rd of a Tournament is good luck?
If that is your idea of good luck, I don't want to hear your idea of bad luck. And he lost points at the Tournament by having to face Nole in the 3rd Rd I don't see Tommy playing any CH Tournaments myself. They could really help his ranking, but I think Tommy has too much pride to play CH Tournaments now.

You are No.64. You play a Masters 1000 event where 48 players of the top 50 signed in. It's not good luck that he got Schüttler as the seed he had to play in round 2? It's not good luck that he got Hernandez in round 1? He could have had to play against Querrey in round 1. Or against Isner. In my opinion, especially Hernandez is one of the weakest players in this Masters field because he's definitely a clay courter. So this was really good luck for Tommy. Furthermore, Nole is not in the best form today and Tommy had more than a chance to get set 2 and then I can't say what Nole would have done in the deciding one. Djokovic is not on the same level as Nadal, Federer or Murray at the moment and you cannot count him to the top guys the ATP scene always talks about.
I'll give you my definiton of bad luck:
First round: Isner, Querrey, Seppi, Chardy, Ljubicic, Gulbis, Kohlschreiber, Lopez, Llodra, Hewitt.
Second round: Nadal, Federer, Murray, Nalbandian, Del Potro, Roddick (Haas has a good record against him but Roddick plays well at the moment), Verdasco.
So for me, Nole was not bad luck.
Why I do answer like this is that I cannot understand why a few people in here always complain of either Tommy's bad ranking or draw situation. Where's your fighting spirit? If Tommy has the same attitude and always kind of gives up before he begins to play, he will have no chance in future. But he always tries to give his best and this is what all of his fans should do. If he draws a top guy, he will draw a top guy but this is no reason to complain. He plays ATP level and then you must be competitive to have at least a chance to win something against these players. Tommy was competitive as we could see in set 2 yesterday so there is no reason to capitulate. Fight and support Tommy!

Me three
He didn't played any Challenges even in 2004 when he haven't any ranking
And his body is very vulnerable if when he playing the challengers have any bad thing happen...It is not worth
I think if he wants there is lots of tournaments would give him the wild card(For example Munich and Halle etc.)

He's ranked at no. 63. He'll crush Rafa in R128 and defeats Federer in the final. Believe me.

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

Tommy is still ranked at #63 according to the ATP Site as of 5/25/09. So I hope he can pick up even more wins at the F.O. because that would help. And don't get me wrong I just want Tommy to have VERY easy draws right now to help his ranking. Tommy is indeed a fighter. Most players would have given up long ago with all the trouble Tommy has had and all the rehab time he has had to put in. Most players wouldn't even put up with all that rehab, but Tommy still really wants not only to play--he still wants to win

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

According to Judio's thread, Tommy will be No.41 next Monday! That's great news! Maybe he'll be seeded in Wimbledon if he has a decent run in Halle...
Of course, you can delete Gasquet from the ranking list because he will lose many of his points in the next weeks, so in fact Tommy will be No. 40!
