Andy could surprise us and make the final. Well, I didn't expect him to be in the US open final so anything can happen.

I agree. What are you guys so sad about? Andy's had the worst year of his career and yet he's still going to Shanghai. That's a small miracle.

and he's classified a way before *cough* James who some consider to be the real number one player in the US. And also at the SAME time as Ljubicic who had the best year of his career.

Well it would have been nice for Andy to be put in the same group as Robredo, but that can't happen now since they're currently 5th and 6th.

As long as he's fit and healthy, Andy should still be able to do better than Davydenko against Nadal, Nalbandian, Ljubicic, Blake and Robredo. I would definately still rate his chances, but he needs to avoid Federer in the semi-final. So as long as he wins his group, or qualifies from Federer's group, he should do very well.

I must be the only one here who does NOT want Andy to be drawn into the weaker group. He really needs the tough tests and tough opponents. It will be good for his mental health to beat the likes of Nadal/Ljubicic/Nalbandian here.

It'll also be good for MTF's mental health if he were to beat Federer but we won't go there just yet.

I think I'd rather Andy be put in the same group as JesusFed so he wouldn't have to play him in the semis. But at this point I don't know if I can trust Andy to get wins against two other pretenders top 8.

Oh dear. Haas just beat Safin. James' spot is in jeopardy again.

Do the top two not get put in opposite groups then the rest are placed randomly?

Blake's loss means he could still finish top American. He'll definately finish #6, whatever the result on Saturday.

Won't Andy finish at #5 this year? Looking at the rankings Blake seems too far away to catch up even if he beats Nalbandian

No, that top 10 right there looks updated through today - Andy picked up 20 race points for his 1 win and James picked up 40. If James were to win the semi, he gets 40 more race points. That more than overtakes Andy as James is now 17 pts back. Likewise, Nalbandian is 24 points back. So either James or Nalbandian will be above Andy at the end of the year, so it is not possible for him to end the year #5
