yep that looks right. It also means that Coria is through.

It really looks like its just Henman v Agassi v Nalbandian now

Something interesting that could happen. should agassi win stockholm which is exremely likely and then beat Henman in the QF, then he would only be 1 point behind henman. so if he lost in the SF he would miss out on houston by 1 point. Which would be funny since he would have gotten 2 points had he turned up for 2 of the clay master series

coria isnt yet through cause henman, safin and nalbandian OR agassi can still pass him which means that there would be no spots left (remember to take gaudio into the equation)

The chances of Safin not qualifying are small. he'd need henman to reach t QF, agassi the SF and nalbandian t F (nalbandian needs to win if he doesnt win Basel). also he himself needs to go out in the first round (which is possible cos he might play ljubicic)

btw is anyone else having problems with neely's signature? it makes the page go out really long for some reason on my browser :confused:

is Coria even fit enough to play the masters cup? for him to not qualify, he needs henman to lose to agassi in the QF and then agassi to beat nalbandian in the SF and then safin to win his first match

wouldnt it be 6 points behind henman, if that was the case...
Henman 458 + 25 = 483
agassi 432 + 45 = 477

Congrats Carlos. People often underrate him. Very few players have qualifyed 5 times in his career for the Tennis Masters Cup, and Moya's is not over yet.

I agree, and you've gotta add to this the fact he was injured for a long period of time, came back and classified then for the TMS for 3 straight years. Along with Federer (and Agassi if he classifies), he is the only player to have classified in 2000, 2003 and 2004.

Well done Carlos!

Yep, according to Matthew Cronin because Andre and David are in the same Paris half, Carlos is definitely in

Carlos Moya will return to the Tennis Masters Cup Houston next month after (believe it or not) Andre Agassi and David Nalbandian were drawn in the same half in TMS Paris, which begin on Monday.

There was only scenario in which both Agassi and Nalbandian could have passed fourth-placed Moya in the INDESIT ATP Race and possibly denied him a Houston berth was for Agassi and Nalbandian to reach the finals of their respective events in Stockholm and Basel this week, and for Agassi and Nalbandian to advance to the Paris final, which is no longer possible. Both Agassi and Nalbandian have reached the semis of the their respective tournaments.

Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Gaston Gaudio and Moya have now qualified for Houston, leaving only three spots left.

The fight for remaining spots will be determined in Paris. Fifth-placed Guillermo Coria withdrew from Paris due to injury, putting his Houston chances at serious risk. The Argentine leads Marat Safin by just eight points, who fell in the St Petersburg quarters to Michael Llodra on Friday. Tim Henman took a tough three set loss to Jiri Novak in Basel and is 14 points behind Safin. Safin will secure a Houston berth if he Paris Masters; while Henman will qualify if he reaches the quarters. Agassi has a terrific shot at Houston if he wins Stockholm.

Yes, Moya has already qualified. Coria is close but still has to wait. He's out if ..

1. Safin wins his first match at Paris
2. Henman reaches QF at Paris
3. Agassi reaches final both Stockholm and Paris or Nalbandian reaches final or win Basel and wins Paris.

It's very hard for Andre and almost impossible for David to get Coria out

Moya Qualifies for Tennis Masters Cup Houston; BNP Paribas Masters Will Settle Final 3 Spots



Houston, Texas, U.S.A – Carlos Moya will return to the $4.45 million Tennis Masters Cup Houston next month after organizers announced today that the Spaniard had qualified for the circuit finale for the third consecutive year. Moya’s qualification still leaves up for grabs three places plus the alternate spot on the eve of next week’s BNP Paribas Masters in Paris.




As the dogfight for Houston berths continues, Guillermo Coria, Tim Henman, Andre Agassi and David Nalbandian will see their fates unfold in Paris. The importance of the BNP Paribas Masters has been felt even before a ball has been struck. After weeks of being on the cusp of qualifying, Moya’s fate was ultimately determined today when Agassi and Nalbandian were drawn in the same half in Paris.


There was only one scenario in which both players could have passed fourth-placed Moya in the INDESIT ATP 2004 Race and possibly denied the Spaniard a Houston berth: Agassi and Nalbandian needed to reach the finals of their respective events in Stockholm and Basel this week (still possible) and Nalbandian and Agassi both needed to advance to the Paris final (no longer possible).

The fight for remaining spots will remain intense through Paris. Fifth-placed Guillermo Coria (who has withdrawn from Paris due to injury) leads Marat Safin by just eight points, with Tim Henman a further 14 points behind. Safin and Henman missed the chance to further press their claims when they suffered respective losses at the St. Petersburg Open and the Davidoff Swiss Indoors today.

However, Safin and Henman next week have the opportunity to qualify for Houston without relying on other results. Safin will secure a berth if he reaches the round of 16 at the BNP Paribas Masters; Henman will qualify if he reaches the quarterfinals.

In four appearances at the circuit finale Moya has reached the semifinals three times. In 1998 he advanced to the final and led Alex Corretja two sets to love before his countryman rallied to win the title in five sets. Moya won Roland Garros in 1998 and became the first Spaniard to rise to World No. 1 in 1999.

In 2004 Moya has won three titles in Chennai, Acapulco and the ATP Masters Series tournament in Rome. He also appeared in finals in Buenos Aires and Sydney.

Marat needs ONE win to qualify.

Looks like Henman is in trouble now.Particularly if Agassi wins Stockholm and Nalbandian wins in Basel.That loss to Novak could prove very harmful indeed.

Henman needs to just focus on winning 2 matches in Paris, QF
