What are the current standings? Nalbandian probably leading with the win in Washington 500 ?

Usually the guy that arses himself with playing in the most events and wins a few of the smaller events.....and doesn't completely bomb in the masters events (sorry Querrey and Fish).

The other possibility is that one of the big boys wins the two masters events. However, usually the guy that wins the Canadian event mysteriously loses early in Cincy :scratch:

Nalby seems like he is trying to prove something to himself and others so I'd say he has the best shot of winning this prestigious :rolleyes: distinction, wresting it away from the reining champion Mr. Querrey.

How does this thing work? Querrey won a 250 event and didn't win a match in D.C., Nalby won a 500 event. How is it that they get the same amt of pts?

Tough to say. Maybe Nalbandian? I think he should be able to pull off decent results enough to keep him in first. I mean who would have known Querrey would have won last year's series?

Yes, this is screwy. They give out the same number of points for the 250s as the 500s:

2. Olympus US Open Series Bonus Points: The following is the system by which the top three finishers (men’s and women’s) will be determined.

a. Players will earn Bonus Points as follows (for the singles competitions only): At each ATP Masters 1000 and WTA Tour Premier 5 event in the Olympus US Open Series, the winner will earn 100 Points, the finalist will earn 70 Points, the semifinalists will earn 45 Points, the quarterfinalists will earn 25 Points and the round-of-16 will earn 15 Points; at each ATP 500/250 and WTA Tour Premier event, the winner will earn 70 Points, the finalist will earn 45 Points, the semifinalists will earn 25 Points and the quarterfinalists will earn 15 Points. The following chart (on page 2) illustrates the 2010 Olympus US Open Series Bonus Challenge points distribution.

b. At ATP Masters 1000 and WTA Tour Premier 5 events, Bonus Points will be awarded through the round-of-16 (16 players). At ATP 500/250 and WTA Tour Premier events, Bonus Points will be awarded through the quarterfinals (8 players). Players will not receive Bonus Points simply by entering Olympus US Open Series events.
c. A player will only earn Bonus Points in the final round of the tournament(s) to which he/she advances (provided he/she advances to a round in which Bonus Points are awarded).
======================================
Note: Updated standings coming into today. Nalby takes sole possession of first place. This will be updated later today I assume to show 95 pts for David:

Thanks Nolby. What a joke this US open series thing is. No wonder Querrey won last year. :lol:

I think Murray and Federer will be tied on 170 points if Fed wins today, but Murray would take it because he beat Roger in the Toronto final. If Mardy wins today he'd have 170 points too but would then win because he beat Murray in the quarters; Mardy could still manage to win even with a loss today if he reaches the New Haven final. So it looks like the top three will be Murray, Federer and Fish with Murray or Fish taking first. Surprisingly only the second time Fed has been in the top 3, after winning it in 07, shows it's been a nice couple of weeks for him even if he had some luck with the withdrawals. Might have made some mistakes, maths isn't my strong point :p

Baghdatis has an outside chance if he wins in New Haven.
