nope! He has his 100 points to defend from his one round robin win. 20 race points = 100 ranking points

I don't know where you got the 50 points from...you're confusing me

Don't even worry about defending points at this point in the year, just look at the race

The ATP site doesn't tell us how many points each RR round is so I'm confuzzled myself.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

each round robin win is 20 race points or 100 Entry System points. But again, it doesn't matter b/c the race is what's important this time of year...

As long as he's still inside the top 5 . Top 4 finish would own though, better draw for the AO and since he's got shit to defend up until like Cincy maybe he can actually make a push for #2 .

That would only be if Nadal drops his form in the clay season. I have to remind you alittle that Nadal will win 2 masters and probably the French again in 07'. Pushing Nadal to number 3 would only be good for Andy because Nadal could face Fed in the semis, which means Andy could be winning slams again...maybe. Apart from that being the number 3 player in the world doesn't mean too much since it's Federer and then everyone else anyways.

Ranking doesn't really matter to Andy at this point in his career, as long as he's in that top 8 it doesn't matter. Andy wants slam titles, that's what it's all about, Federer is going to have the number 1 spot. Andy wants to do well in master events get in good form and then win gs titles. Winning the year ending championship is cool but it's not a gs, ranking is just a number, winning slams is history.

I think the ranking is a little important to andy. no not as important as winning titles and contending for slams etc. but he seemed pretty perturbed at that USO press conference when he wasn't too nice to Matt Cronin and promised he'd be in the top 5 again. I think it means something to an extent, if nothing else than a pride thing.

I mean, Andy is a very competitive guy but honestly I would rather Andy wins a slam this year, at AO or USO or Wimbledon than be the number 2 or 3 ranked player in the world, if Andy wins a slam and drops to number 9 or 10 or sumtin, who cares.

I know that. All I'm asking is: does Andy have to go one better than Ivan at Shanghai in order to solidify No. 3?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ...

It's not that simple, Blake and Davydenko both can and very well may overtake Andy (or Ljubicic) going into Shanghai if they do well this week. Davydenko's double bagel win today put him within one win of overtaking Andy I'd say it's pretty unlikely Andy will finish #3 or even #4 unless Davydenko and James lose early in Paris and Andy does really really well in Shanghai.............
