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

Yeah, I would really appreciate if Andy finished the year higher ranked than Ferrer But they're pretty close. So many mathematical possibilities with so many points up for grabs (way over 200) with the Masters series and Shanghai. It's impossible to say really. I guess just hope for Ferrer to lose early in Madrid?

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

If Ferrer reaches the semis or better at Madrid he'll overtake Andy in the race. A semi would get him 469, a final 494 and a win 524. Ferrer is then playing Basel.

Both Andy and Ferrer have to reach a semi to gain points. The most Andy can end up with after Lyon is 496. The most Ferrer can gain from Basel is 38 points.

If Ferrer wins both events and Andy wins Lyon Ferrer would have 554 and Andy 496.

Obviously there's another 100 points up for grabs in Paris and 150 at the Masters Cup but Andy needs to do well (and by well, I mean semis and final) at the events he is actually playing to ensure he stays ahead of Ferrer.

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

Notice how Djokovic has almost twice as many points as Davydenko. There's three groups of players here: the two untouchables (Roger and Rafa), the Lone Challenger (Novak), and the Clowns (everyone else).

The top three are the only ones who can truly slack off at the end of the year.

Andy used to be one of those players.

"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."

This is the only acceptable option. However, the fact that it remains a possibility that he won't is

Well, yes.

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 know! I mean, if you're to suck at least be the best at it.

Maybe, if we separate the Clowns from the Mugs, he could be the leader of the Mug pack?

Yes, perhaps. But leader of the Mugs is also known by the title 'loser at life'. That's not great. d:

God he is so annoying.
Someone tie him to a chair until his next tournament please.

Andy Roddick Maria Sharapova
Novak Djokovic Maria Kirilenko


There is only one thing that separates my cooking and my grandma's. You see when she's in the kitchen it seems like no one is there. When I'm cooking, I let the whole world know! There's flour all over the kitchen counters and ten feet away on the floor, I call everyone to let them know I'm cooking, and I finish that off with a mass email to my friends with a picture of what I cooked.
- Maria still rocks harder than the world. No matter how long it takes before she gets her cute little self back on a tennis court.

Actually it's over 5 years in the top 10 now. [give or take a rankings plummet in 2006 ]
Entered: 5 August, 2002.
2002 - 10
2003 - 1
2004 - 2
2005 - 3
2006 - 6
2007 - most likely finish around 5-6. 4 if he's lucky.

So Andy finishes the 2008 year at No. 6, correct?
