#1?

when do you people think Andy's gonna get to #1? he can get it this week, if Ferrero loses i think before the semis. he's got i think 4 tournaments left, so when do you think he's gonna get it? my pick, this week. i have a feeling Ferrero is going to lose before the semis. if not then, he's going to do it in Spain because he has 0 to defend

Re: #1?

I doubt Ferrero will lose before the semifinals this week, but Andy can probably grab it soon enough.

I haven't done the math at all, though. I'm just going on what the Champions Race looks like.

Obviously if he wants to make it easy by winning, that would be fine.

Ferrero's draw in Thailand is pretty skanked out - his toughest competitor before the semis would be like, Santoro or somebody. Get the picture? I wouldn't put a pathetic loss past him, but I think he'll lose in the semis and just keep it. Roddick should pass him in Madrid, I imagine.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: #1?

On second thought, when is Madrid?

Re: #1?

Isn't Roddick pulling out of Thailand? So Roddick can't gain any points this week.

Madrid is in 3 weeks I think.

Re: #1?

I am so confused about Andy's schedule. I thought he was going to Tokyo.

it really doesn't matter if Roddick had played here or not. if he had played here, i think he had to win the whole thing just to gain a few points because he's got a pretty big reserve for his 6th best other event. Ferrero MUST make the semi's to keep the #1 spot. there's no doubt that FErrero can't win this whole thing, but i dunno i have a feeling there's gonna be a freak loss before the semis. i can be totaly wrong btw, but its a pretty good bet at Mardid since Ferrero has to defend i think like 100 points and Roddick literally has 0 to defend

Re: #1?

That "pretty good feeling" is called "wishful thinking" But wish away... it just might happen, right? Afterall, Ferrero does have a long flight, change of surfaces.... hangover

Rebecca i never said pretty good feeling i just said i have a feeling and you names the reasons why i have this feeling. and i actually like Ferrero, he really grew on me this year, so i would be fine if he won this tournament. maybe it is a little wishful thinking but don't we all wish for things?

Re: #1?

I've not seen you ever put another player down.... except for my sweet Daniela.. :boohoo:

I understood what you were saying Naldo. I think Andy has as good a chance as any of the top 4. I like Ferrero and Federer too, and although I would be a little disappointed if they took the top spot at the year end, I would still be happy for them. They are great players. They've been on the tour longer than Andy, and have worked through adversity. It would be sweet to me no matter which of the three of them won. Even Agassi winning wouldn't be too bad. It would be a great achievement at his age.

Yes, I understand now

I'm content with whoever ends the year number one, btw. I do hope it comes down to who wins the Masters Cup, though.

Re: #1?

I'm content just as long as it's one of the top 4.

Re: #1?

It's looking to me like Ferrero is going to be able to defend all the points he needs in Thailand. So, I'm thinking right now that he will keep his position.

Does anyone know off hand what Andy's next tournament is going to be? I'm thinking Basel, but I'm not sure.
