Re: Aisam Qureshi-Rohan Bopanna

Bopanna/Qureshi have drawn Fabio Fognini/Mike Russel in the first round of French Open. That should be easy for them. If they can win that, then they face the winner of the match between 15th seeds Julien Benneteau/Michael Llodra and Leos Friedl/David Skoch. Going by the form it cud be Benneteau/Llodra. That should be very very tough for them. A first round win means 90 points. Hmmmm. Go for it boys!!

Re: Aisam Qureshi-Rohan Bopanna

Bopanna has moved up by 8 places this week from 62 to 54. Qureshi has gone up by one place to 45. Their combined ranking has gone up by 5 places to 14 with 595 points. Cool!!
Reversal of roles this is. Because in July 2008 Bopanna was ranked at his career best 43 while Qureshi was ranked 53 his career best until two weeks back. But this cud change after Wimbledon, because Qureshi has to defend 205 points there, while Bopanna has to defend none.

Re: Aisam Qureshi-Rohan Bopanna

So the first half of the season is over. A succesful one definetely. It is evident by making a comparison of their performances during 01-01-2009 to 31-05-2009 and 01-01-2010 to 31-05-2010.
Last year Bopanna got 495 points during this period. This year he got 903 points!
Qureshi did even better. He had 377 points last year during this period. This year he got 807. More than twice!!
It has to be kept in mind that historicaly this period has returned them with very few points year after year. So it is a break with the past, and augers well for their future.

Re: Aisam Qureshi-Rohan Bopanna

Some more statistics:
While Bopanna got 495 points from the first half (01-01-2009 to 31-05-2009) last year, in the next (01-06-2009 to 31-12-2009) he got 440. Meaning few points to defend now.
Qureshi on the other hand got 377 points from the first half, and 837 from the next,
This means Bopanna has to defend only 440 points from now on upto 31-12-2010, while Qureshi has to defend 837.
(note:- I have ignored the best 18 tournament rule).

Re: Aisam Qureshi-Rohan Bopanna

And now some mathematics:-

When this thread was started, it was hoped that both Bopanna & Qureshi would reach the top 20 of the dbls rankings by the end of the year.

The player ranked 20 has got 3200 points.

We know Bopanna has so far this year got 903 points, while Qureshi has got 807 points.
This means Bopanna has to get 3200-900=2300 points during the rest of the year to reach 20.
Similarly Qureshi has to get 3200-800=2400 points. A very tough ask indeed. Can they do it? Remember, only best 18 tournaments count.
---------------------------------------------
rank points

20 3200
25 2410
30 2130
35 1785
40 1705
45 1592
46 1562(Quresh)
50 1390
54 1308(Bopanna)
55 1305
60 1190
