Dude, would you just drop it?! If Matchu wants to calculate and discuss rankings then who do u think u r to constantly criticise him for it??
Rankings are an extremely important aspect of tennis, as that is your standing in the game and your ability to enter tournaments. They show form and improvement and allow a player to set goals to achieve.
I for one, enjoy having someone else calculate rankings after good results so I don't have to myself.
I enjoy your posts as well, as they are always very analytical and educated, especially on Luczak and Millman. But far out I'm sick of your whinging when Matchu wishes to make mention of rankings!
I am sick of rankings talk all of the time, that is why. If anything there should be a specific rankings thread on the Aussie players all in one tracking their progress, what they have to defend, progressions and regressions.
No shit they are important, but Millman, Luczak and all the other players know what they need to do to improve their rankings. If they win matches, then the ranking looks after itself, if they don't, then that reflects that, it's not hard.
John has a lot to improve on, has to get stronger and fitter. He has a good work ethic, also is a bit defensive at times when he needs to accelerate through the ball.
