For me it was a dream that he could maybe win another tournament or reach one more semifinal Grandslam tournament but, to be honest, not something I really thought would come true. Still can't believe this great comeback, once again, just great Tommy!

Ok we're back in the top 20, new goal now finally reach the Masters Cup of the top 8?
I agree !

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

Right now I'm just happy with the Top Twenty because it wasn't all that long ago that Tommy was saying he was thinking of retirement. And for him to reach the Top Twenty again seemed like it might not even happen at all.

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

I am so happy for Tommy! Who expected him to break top 20 just before Madrid masters? (he was almost outside of top 80 that moment) He`s done great job in last several months to come back where he belongs
Tommy has got almost nothing to defend the rest of the year (just Washington semis, Cinci R3 and some R2)

Mardy Fish!

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

Just to sum it up:

Date - Singles ranking
06.07.2009 - 19
22.06.2009 - 34
15.06.2009 - 35
08.06.2009 - 41
25.05.2009 - 63
18.05.2009 - 63
11.05.2009 - 75
04.05.2009 - 76
27.04.2009 - 77
20.04.2009 - 80
13.04.2009 - 81
06.04.2009 - 86

And that was just the beginning.

Also cool to see: on the official ATP page Roger and Tommy are the two movers of the week. And although he said that doesn't mean much to him anymore: congrats for being the German no. 1 again.

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

Usually one spot up in tha ranking isn't that big a deal, but I guess in the top 20, every spot counts - Tommy's no. 18 as of this week.

What I find so interesting is the number of tournaments played in the time accountable for the ranking. Tommy has the lowest number, 17, of all players in the top 20, together only with Roger, also with 17. (For comparison, Simon (no. 7) has played 28 tournaments.) In the rest of the top 100, there's also not one player with less tournaments, only three others with 17 (Hewitt - 42, Moya - 52, Muller - 86).
Just a little number crunching ...

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

interesting numbers! good for Tommy! every higher spot is a good spot.
but they only count your best 18 tournaments (plus Masters Cup) anyway. so Simon has 9 tournaments which are non-countable tournaments. but it's a wonderful accomplishment for Tommy to be a top20 player without utilizing the number of countable tournaments. so there's still room for more! go, Tommy!

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

Still - more tries, more opportunities to get deep.

Tommy indeed has only 14 countable tournaments which yield any points, and one with only 10. So there's indeed a lot room.

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

I noticed that, too, about Tommy's 17 tournaments and thought it was great he was ranked so high having the least number of tourneys (other than RF). But I didn't know he only has 14 countable tourneys. That's awesome! Think he'll make it into the top 10 by year end?
