For the Men:

1. Roger Federer — Only Federer can hurt Federer. Which is what happened in practice.

2. Rafael Nadal — Does he swap fashion tips with model ball girls at Madrid tournament?

3. Andre Agassi — Most important statistic in October: $10 million raised for his foundation.

4. Ivan Ljubicic — Vienna calling. Wins Austrian tournament and never loses serve.

5. James Blake — Rare title for an American on European soil last week.

6. Andy Roddick — Who would have thought he'd be playing catch-up to Blake?

7. Lleyton Hewitt — Expectant father. Will he be shouting "C'monnnn!!" in the delivery room?

8. Guillermo Coria — Still can't believe he signed with Nashville. Oh, sorry, that's Kariya.

9. Marat Safin — Out since August. ATP news conferences haven't quite been the same. :sad:

10. Argentina — Tennis program needs to go into "timeout" after series of drug scandals.
