James's Ranking! (Current Ranking: 8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)...April, 18, 2005: 210.

Considering James was 210 a few short weeks ago and as of Monday May 23 he will be 127, I think his ranking deserves a thread!

He was 132 last week w/330 points and didn't even play anything last week to get any points (the 15 RG qualifying points will be added after RG) and he moved up 5 spots to 127! Always helps to move up 5 spots without technically doing anything! :yeah:

Movin' on up!! :cool: :yippee: :aparty: :woohoo:

James's first round win in Paris is a big one for rankings - gets him 35 points for a total of 50 points including qualifying - that'll put him almost in the top 110.

If James were to win his 2nd round match (which I think will be very tough for him to do), he should be top 100.

Deboogle!.
06-08-2005, 12:45 AM
James should be about 1 win away from moving into the top 100!

:yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

06-12-2005, 11:54 PM
Darn, James is still outside the top 100 at 102 :(

If he can win even 1 round at Wimby, though, there's no doubt he'll be in the top 100!

Fee
06-13-2005, 12:56 AM
poop, must have been enough going on around him to block him.

He's in the doubles qualifying at W. Good luck Jimmy Jam!

Deboogle!.
07-05-2005, 04:15 AM
James actually went down a few spots after wimby to 106:( so close to the top 100, yet so far away. a strong showing at newport would help.. hopefully he'll get a WC for LA too. C'mon James, get a few spots higher before the USO cutoff!!!!

Deboogle!.
08-01-2005, 04:57 AM
James moved up 7 spots after LA to 101. SO CLOSE to the top 100 yet so far away. His draw in DC is doable for a couple rounds, if he were to win a match or two he should finally be able to make it into the top 100. Come on James, you can do it!!

James beat Stepanek to make the third round of DC, with that he SHOULD be into the top 100 FINALLY!!!!! (of course, more wins would extra-guarantee this ;))

James is into the DC Quarters and will almost SURELY be in the top 100 now. FINALLY!

Hi James fans! :wavey:

From the top of my head, James gets at least 40 entry points for reaching quarter-finals. (That is the case if this is International Series, worth 175 points for the winner.) James should overcome Djokovic at #96 with that!

Deboogle!.
08-05-2005, 04:05 AM
it's an international series tourney but worth a few more points, so he'll actually get 50 points for the QF so it could put him closer to 90! :D

09-04-2005, 05:31 PM
Yes, there are 38 direct entries for both Madrid and Bercy. Both Robby and James should get in because even if they are one or two places out of the entry list, someone always withdraws. This is so cool!

Thanks Fee this is great news. :yeah: I missed him a lot in Paris last year and it's so good that he'll be back there, but I just hope that he'll not play and beat Fernando again in the 1st round like it happened 2002 and 2003 ;)

That was not a moment I liked, but James's comeback is awesome and I think he'll just keep coming on...I agree with Roger that he "gave" the Agassi match away...not so much in the 5th , but there, too a bit. Hard to conquer savvy AA. Huge congrats to James and all his fans :worship:

Fee
09-12-2005, 06:25 PM
Something similar happens during the AO with the IW list. The cutoff date was in the middle of the USO, so they don't release the list until the slam is over and it's based on the rankings before the slam. Someone had a thread asking about this in GM and smucav answered it before I could go looking for the rule. SteveG should have it Tuesday or Wednesday now that Jay is back from his vacation.

Deboogle!.
09-13-2005, 12:46 AM
aha gotcha. well that sucks then, hopefully James will be able to get in directly without having to qualify, but if not, it'll be a week off b/c he'll hopefully do well in Metz and Stockholm:D

cobalt60
10-09-2005, 11:23 PM
Go James. Here is hoping that he does well. Possibilty of top 20 maybe by the end? Guess he would have to do very well. I haven't checked what the point spread or difference is between him and top 20. Good luck though. I swear being in love is helpful ;)

Deboogle!.
10-09-2005, 11:28 PM
He's 29 in the race, and the disparity between him and the top 20 isn't an unreachable amount, if he does well at his last 4 tourneys of the year (assuming he gets the WC into Madrid. If he doesn't get that, he'd have to qualify which means he'd have to lose before the QF in Stockholm. :(). It's not impossible but he'd need a good 70 points or so.

If Gaudio hadn't done as well in Monte Carlo, James would have been only two spots away from Andy in the rankings!... that'd be the closest he's ever been to Andy in the rankings... however, there are still about 600 points separating them...

Well Andy's got 700 points from Wimby alone and almost 1000 includig Queens, so James will probably be ranked higher by July!

James is still number 7 in the race. I'm almost sure Robredo won't surpass him, but i think Feña will do it. My guess is that he'll end the year ranked number 8, which isn't a bad number at all :)

EDIT: By the way, i'm new in the Blake Forum :)
