Nope, Xavier was 18th or 19th after Wimbledon 2002.

Correction, after Wimbledon 2002 Malisse was ranked #23. Might have reached a higher ranking later. Sorry to be a party-killer Joske! ;)

Malisse reached #19 in 2002. Again a stupid fault by the Belgian media, spreading this news everywhere :rolleyes:

it is so easy to check these kind of facts:

:hug: don't worry. The new entry system awards quality points for the player's butt size. Oli surely will move up :drool:

Oli is definately a good player even with his height.

but I'm curious to know:

why he is still using that old Prince Tour Graphite racquet nowsaday which Michael Chang used to play in early 90s??
