Cool The "7 years and counting in the Top Ten" RANKINGS WATCH Thread!!!

I just realized that we don't have a thread dedicated to watching Andy's rank go up and down—so now we do!

Looking over the past five year's ATP INDESIT RANKINGS I've noticed that Andy and Roger Federer are the only two players who have made it to the YEC all four years.

So how about that: The ubertalented, no-peer genius Roger Federer and our little no-talent quack who can't play tennis are the only two players who can consistently hack it in the top eight. Amazing, isn't it?

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2002
1. Hewitt, Lleyton (AUS)
2. Agassi, Andre (USA)
3. Safin, Marat (RUS)
4. Ferrero, Juan Carlos (ESP)
5. Moya, Carlos (ESP)
6. Federer, Roger (SUI)
7. Novak, Jiri (CZE)
8. Henman, Tim (GBR)
9. Costa, Albert (ESP)
10. Roddick, Andy (USA)

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2003

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2004
1. Federer, Roger (SUI)
2. Roddick, Andy (USA)
3. Hewitt, Lleyton (AUS)
4. Safin, Marat (RUS)
5. Moya, Carlos (ESP)
6. Henman, Tim (GBR)
7. Coria, Guillermo (ARG)
8. Agassi, Andre (USA)
9. Nalbandian, David (ARG)
10. Gaudio, Gaston (ARG)

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2005
1. Federer, Roger (SUI)
2. Nadal, Rafael (ESP)
3. Roddick, Andy (USA)
4. Hewitt, Lleyton (AUS)
5. Davydenko, Nikolay (RUS)
6. Nalbandian, David (ARG)
7. Agassi, Andre (USA)
8. Coria, Guillermo (ARG)
9. Ljubicic, Ivan (CRO)
10. Gaudio, Gaston (ARG)

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2006
1. Federer, Roger (SUI)

6. Roddick, Andy (USA)
7. Robredo, Tommy (ESP)
8. Nalbandian, David (ARG)
9. Ancic, Mario (CRO)
10. Gonzalez, Fernando (CHI)

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2007
1. Federer, Roger (SUI)
2. Nadal, Rafael (ESP)
3. Djokovic, Novak (SRB)
4. Davydenko, Nikolay (RUS)
5. Ferrer, David (ESP)
6. Roddick, Andy (USA)
7. Gonzalez, Fernando (CHI)
8. Gasquet, Richard (FRA)
9. Nalbandian, David (ARG)
10. Robredo, Tommy (ESP)

YEAR END TOP TEN FOR 2008
1. Nadal, Rafael (ESP)
2. Federer, Roger (SUI)
3. Djokovic, Novak (SRB)
4. Murray, Andy (GBR)
5. Davydenko, Nikolay (RUS)
6. Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried (FRA)
7. Simon, Gilles (FRA)
8. Roddick, Andy (USA)
9. Del Potro, Juan Martin (ARG)
10. Blake, James (USA)

=========

He seems to slip a rank every year. Only this year he slipped down to 6. Not too bad for someone who's been slumping for over half the year.

"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."

Andy has dropped one position every year since 2003. At this rate it will take another 7 years for him to drop out of the top 10 (althought I think he will drop one or 2 more positions if he doesn't play Paris)

Andy's trying to test out the "How low can you go?" ranking limbo game. He needs to try harder. It must suck to not really suck.

He'll be retired by the time he falls out of the top ten for any length of time. Which is funny because his detractors have been predicting him falling out of the top ten for years and it still hasn't happened. They must be so depressed.

Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It's not that hard: Samir Na-gheen-an-a-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well at least your name isn't Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know there's nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There was nothing wrong with it... until I was about 12 years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm... well why don't you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way. Why should I change? He's the one who sucks.

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

So what does Andy have to do to gain points at Shanghai? He's lost 225 from both Lyon and Paris (450) and Ljubicic has lost 350 from Paris. Ivan has one RR match to defend (100) and Andy has nothing. If Andy goes one RR better than Ivan will he retake the No. 3 ranking?

Math help please

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

I'm not sure but I think RRs are worth 20 race points each so that's equal to 100 ranking points. That's exactly enough to make up the difference between the 450 and 350 defending points lost but Andy is still behind in the rankings soooo...um Andy would need to do the equivalent of 2 RR rounds better?

Is it 50 points each RR even if you lose? Ivan has 100 pts to defend: he had won his first RR but lost the next two.
