Re: The "Andy Roddick is a no-talent assclown" RANKINGS WATCH Thread!!!

I thought the YE rankings were based on the rankings, not the race?

"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."

At the end of the year, the entry system and the race are the same (except for those players who played challengers as those don't give race points). Entry system is just race points times 5. So just multiply everything I said by 5 and it's the same story for the rankings.

Andy could still be seeded above Ljubicic for the AO if he doesn't defend his Chennai points. But Blake only has the Sydney points to defend.

Could Andy enter a tournament in the first week of January? It's the only way for him to get into the top 4.

Enter a tournament in the first week of january...and leave Austin early...?! That goes against the Gospel of Andy.

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Every january Andy leaves US to play Kooyong and then Aussie Open, so he won't win any points till the first grand slam of the year.

The only tournament which could give Andy enough points to pass James would be Doha with 250 points (given the point difference between them and the points from Andy's fifth best optional tournament). He would have to win Doha. However, that would require getting past Federer.

If Ljubicic does not defend Chennai and does not play another tournament that first week, then he should fall behind both Andy and Tommy Robredo.

Maybe it's just me but i'm glad Andy doesn't play week 1. I think Kooyong is the perfect warmup and it gives him another week of an off-season to work hard

you're not alone I think the possible few extra ranking points are negligible if Andy is guaranteed three matches against top players on basically a mini AO.

The lists came out today. Ljubicic is playing Doha. Federer isn't.

USA TODAY's Power rankings, post-Indian Wells

Indian Wells didn't have as much impact on the power rankings as we thought, even with Roger Federer's shocking loss and Maria Sharapova's surrender of the WTA's top ranking. Champions Rafael Nadal and Daniela Hantuchova moved up, but no one took a sharp tumble. What are we going to do -- kick Federer out of the top spot for his first loss in months?

The top 10s ...

1. Roger Federer, Switzerland. Lost his 41-match winning streak to Guillermo Canas? In his first match at Indian Wells? Oh well -- he's still far ahead of the pack. Season highlights: Australian Open champion, Dubai champion. Season record: 12-1

2. Tommy Haas, Germany. Took out Fernando Gonzalez with ease before falling in epic quarterfinal tiebreaker to Andy Murray. Season highlights: Memphis champion, semis in Australian Open and Dubai. Season record: 20-4

3. Andy Roddick, United States. Beat Ivan Ljubicic in quarters, lost to Rafael Nadal in semis. Not losing to bad players but not winning any tournaments. Season highlights: Memphis runner-up, semis in Australian Open, Indian Wells and San Jose, beat Federer in Kooyong exhibition final. Season record: 18-4

4. Andy Murray, Britain. Rising and rising -- took out Nikolay Davydenko and Haas before losing to Novak Djokovic in semis. Season highlights: San Jose champion, Qatar runner-up, semis in Indian Wells and Memphis. Season record: 19-4

5. Rafael Nadal, Spain. Jumps five spots after cruising to an Indian Wells title with a drubbing of Roddick along the way. Another win will put him back on Federer's heels where he belongs. Season highlights: Indian Wells champion, Chennai (India) semifinalist, Australian Open quarterfinalist. Season record: 15-4

6. Novak Djokovic, Serbia. Welcome to the top 10, both here and in the ATP's figuring. Beat David Ferrer and Murray to reach the final against Nadal. Season highlights: Adelaide champion, Indian Wells runner-up, Rotterdam semifinalist. Season record: 18-5

7. Fernando Gonzalez, Chile. Had easy road until losing to Haas in round of 16. Season highlights: Australian Open runner-up. Season record: 11-4

8. James Blake, United States. Lost to Julien Benneteau. May have peaked in January. Season highlights: Sydney champion, Delray Beach runner-up. Season record: 14-6

9. Ivan Ljubicic, Croatia. Stays in top 10 with win over David Nalbandian before falling to Roddick in quarters. Season highlights: Qatar champion, Zagreb runner-up, Rotterdam runner-up. Season record: 17-6

10. Mikhail Youzhny, Russia. We move him up to #5 after he reaches two straight finals, and he's one and done in Indian Wells? To Jose Acasuso? Season highlights: Rotterdam champion, Dubai runner-up, Zagreb semifinalist. Season record: 18-6

Dropped out: Lleyton Hewitt, Australia. Nice win in Vegas, but you can't follow that with a one-and-done against Janko Tipsarevic.

Current ATP Top 10: Federer, Nadal, Roddick, Nikolay Davydenko (Russia), Gonzalez, Tommy Robredo (Spain), Ljubicic, Blake, Haas, Djokovic.

"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."

Re: The "4 years and counting in the Top Ten" RANKINGS WATCH Thread!!!

Can somebody with a mathematical mind tell me what Andy needs to do to keep David Ferrer at bay? I'd like for Andy to end his year in the Top Five but Ferrer has been on a roll lately and he seems determined to win as many matches as he can. Right now, according to ATP site, they are separated by 42 points. And Andy just pulled out of Madrid.

I hate when guys get lazy at the end of the year because then you get other guys like Ferrer there ready to pick up the slack.
