Well, he had 10 months to show good form and qualify for the tournament. If he continues to play the way he recently did he will be amongst the best 8 players next year for sure.

:sad:
Well, at least we probably see him in 2008 (Unless he'll play like he did this year...)
I mean, he better be there next year!!!!

Funny, i heard the same complain when Gonzo didn't make it last year. But there is not shame in neither case. Shanghai is a reward to the eight players that have been the most consistent through the year, and since everybody is well aware on how the system to get the points to qualify works, there is nothing to regret. The eight ones who will get there totally deserved.

you're right.
This event is for the 8 players who had the best results this year, and Nalbandian is not one of them, I'm not saying he deservs to be there according to his results this year, but now when he finally back to himself, I'm sure many would love to see him there..

it's not a shame at all. All he had to show prior to this was one QF. A place in the masters cup is the reward of an entire season, not just one tournament.

That's a different story, and i agree with you there. Let's see what the next year brings to FIT Dave.

He still has a chance.If others dont do so well,and he wins Paris + SF in Basel he can still make it.

If he manages to win Paris, then they should give him a WC for Shanghai. ;)

Couldn't have said it better. Not to mention that the Race rewards a whole year's work, and not 1 week.

Fee what is this "word"? I looked up the online dictionary and it gave a defintion that I could not quite apply above to your post. :confused:

I not understand. Why Nalbandian should make it to Masters Cup? :retard:

He had enough time to get the results and did not
one tournament does not get you there where others worked whole year long

I do not think ugotlobbed means Nalbandian should play in the masters cup but its shame he is not playing because he could put great performances against everyone there.

Yes he did but it's one tournament. He's has to put more into his other tournaments.

If he's good enough to win Paris-Bercy and do well in Basel, then he'll probably qualify.

The answer is not to be found in any dictionary, it is to be found in the song 'Word Up' by Cameo. If that doesn't help you, find Lars Graf at any ATP tournament and ask him. He should remember the way I explained it to him. If not, just say 'Word Lars' and move along.

Truthfully, it cannot be explained, it can only be felt. word.

I completely agree with the posts here how can a guy who has one flash in the pan good performance be rewarded, it takes alot more than that!!

But I agree if Dave can do well consisantly next year he will make TMC. Because of the underperformance/bad luck of talented players such as himself and Murray we get tools like Boredo in TMC.
But at least Boredo did well enough in these Mikey mouse tournies to get to this position!

Boredo is far from qualified for the TMC... he has a chance but so do many other players for just a couple of spots.

Not sure, If he can win next Title and last Master, he still has a chance to be there in this year

Will they have a terracottaproblem, if Bandy wins Basel and Paris? I don't think they mesuered him...
