Yep, cmon Andy. Bastl is not that difficult a task so let's hope he can do him in straights.

good luck Andy!

If he wins, I think he has a good chances against Soderling or Vik

Duncan
09-25-2005, 03:22 PM
What round does he need to get to to reach the top 100?

ClaycourtaZzZz.
09-25-2005, 03:41 PM
QF,
means that he would have to beat Bastl and Söderling/Vik

He would be around 95:yeah:

Duncan
09-25-2005, 03:46 PM
it all sounds very possible to me! :D

Duncan
09-25-2005, 03:47 PM

Are their any detailed press reports on that match? Clearly BBC Sports got no idea if it was a challenging win or a walk over!

Here is my own report.
http://www.realimagehost.com/uploads/29fd89bb22.jpg
I went there and did stay until Andy left the court.

All the Brits who stay in Thailand during this week, you can show your passport to the staff and get free entrance to Andy's match, all those Swiss passport holders could get in for free as well. (I'm not sure whether it's for every matches or only Andy-George match.)

George was the one who had hard time holding his serve.
But Andy was upset that he couldn't take the opportunities he got.
So it went on and eventually he got the break.

In the second set George still had trouble holding serve and Andy found
a way to break serve. But he gave it back to George right away because
of some bad calls. Then Andy was playing better, running all the ball down,
very impressive to me and those Brits supporters who got in for free and he got service break from Swiss opponent again.

After the match he did give autograph to the fans and even take photos with them very closely as most of the fans went to opening ceremony on center court. So those who chose to watch Andy's match could meet & talk with him easily.

Some more pix of mine will be posted in Andy's picture thread, ok? I'm afraid I need to resize most of them first. ;)

10-01-2005, 03:07 PM
WOW! Top 50 by French Open then! :p

I would have thought it will be touch and go whether Andy is seeded for Roland Garros.

He would need around 1100 points. So assuming he ends the year with about 600 (he might do better), he then needs 500 next year from Aus Open, 5 Masters events and 3 or 4 ATP events.

On current form that is just about within reach. (Andy is defending about 25 points from the same period this year)

I keep hearing he will go up to 68. I don't know if anybody has actually sat down and worked out all the possibilities of all the players near him in the rankings, but I would say he must be at least very near that figure; he has just got 120 points for getting to the final
