Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

I do not think that Andy will drop out of the top 8 before Queens or Wimbledon because he has a 1000+ point lead over Verdasco (#9) and over a 1500 point+ lead over Tsonga -- plus Soderling will lose his French finalist points (1200 points).

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

the unfortunate thing is not that his ranking will drop, but that if he had played a decent clay season and done OK (By his standards), he had the chance to pack on enough points for a top FOUR wimbledon seeding. I think now that will be quite difficult, though.

It's great that he explained. Thank you, Andy.

The still change seeding in Wimbledon, right? If so, he can be 6th. I think it's realistic.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

Technically, if Del Potro is out for an undetermined amount of time and Davydenko is out (is he back for W?) and Soderling is going to lose his FO final points prior to Wimbledon, Andy could in theory be the 5th seed at Wimbledon even without Wimbledon's special seeding formula, if Soderling falls and DP and Davydenko are out?

Of course if say Verdasco goes and wins the FO then my theory is no longer valid!

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

Yes they still change the seeds in wimbledon. Thing is, there's no difference between 5-8. A change in seeding will only help Andy if he can get up to 4th because then he avoids the top guys til the semis. So it's all about whether he has enough points that, when you add his wimbledon final from last year and a couple other results that they consider, it would push him up to 4th. Otherwise, 5, 6, 7, 8 all go in the same position in the draw. and we'd really have to hope he's in novak's quarter

And really really hope he will not have to play Roger before the final. It will break my spirit, maybe his also.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

Well, by playing basically no clay matches, he's made it all the more likely he'll even be in Roger's QUARTER.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

If he do great in French Open, by great I mean QFs maybe he can move up a little bit. But he will be tired for the grass, if he gets that far.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

How could one tournament make him tired? He hasn't played in a month and a half. I think he'll be fine, but I don't see him making the QFs in Paris just b/c he doesn't care enough and there are a lot of lower-seeded players who can and probably will beat him there

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

My real concern is not that he'll reach the French Open lacking matches but that he might reach Wimby lacking matches and out of form, now that would be really really bad.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

In reality though, he only had 2 matches going into the FO this time last year and he had his best result ever. So it's not like there is going to be a huge difference between last year and this year and he took the same amount of time off last year.

Bad timing? Absolutely but we will just have to wait and see what happens and thankfully the FO is next and not Wimbledon!

Because it's the previous week. Queens is right after the French open, and Wimbledon I think is right after Queens...I don't know, maybe you are right. Just hope he e is fresh for the grass tournaments.
The other thing, I think if he is healthy a has a bit of luck with the draw, he can do it. Last year is there were normal conditions he would have chances against Monfils.

If he plays a couple of rounds at the French, and play decent performance at Queens, it will be enough imo, as far as lack of matches is concerned.

There are two weeks between RG and W, so no, W is not right after Queens. Andy takes the week before W off so he can get there and start practicing at Aorangi Park right away.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
