Re: Ranking Watch

well... don't think the rest of you care about the details very much, but actually... the 200 points he lost from marseille were replaced by his new 8th best optional event which was casablanca from last year, giving him 15 points. so he lost 185 points compared to last week.

here's the points breakdown for player C487!

sad to see two bagels at the bottom for two of his fav tournaments, marseille and sydney ....

Thanks for clarifying this for everyone. The rankings are more than just the current tournament + and -.

lol and what if he played another tournament, not Marseille, that week, would it somehow affect on his ranking then?

i'm teacher Via ???

lol

i'll try but no guarantee the accuracy

i don't think it matters which tournament, as long as it offers ranking points to replace those that will get dropped. sometimes you hear players can't defend points because tourneys are scheduled in different weeks on the calendar... even no.1 positions were swapped because of that effect... and it used to be an embarrassment for the atp and that was why the race was introduced in 2000. now that we have a dominant no.1, the race gets thrown out of the window....:retard:

... sorry i think i digressed... that wasn't what you were asking

And I’m not sure now what I was asking about lol That means you have a priceless quality for a teacher!

Well, Arnaud is +1 in his rankings this week The same for Seb. Where is all that their pre-season motivation now… One is injured physically, another is injured mentally. Let’s hope that’s a temporare phenomenon…
To mark something good: in doubles classification Arnaud remains 24th position which is = his best doubles ranking

now his both singles and doubles highest rankings are dated with the same day, Apr 2!

Re: Ranking Watch

how significant... 6 years to the day after he made it to the top 10, he has now made it to the doubles top 20. i suppose that's the right direction that he's heading. maybe he should do the opposite of what llodra had tried to do, and hopes that mika will not be too stubborn about focussing on the singles! lol

they may even make it to shanghai for the year-end..... that would be funny

once again thanks to higherlaw for some conscientious watching
