Accdg to atp.com, if Marcos wins Beijing final, he might get closer to the final eight of TMC. Who do you want to book that spot, Ancic or Baghdatis? For me, the two of them should be there, Blake gets the boot! :D

i think mario has a better situation now but marcos is also a damn threat...they've played before in s'hertogenbosch and ancic has won it but who knows what'll happen??

I would not be surprised if both end in the top 8. Blake and Robredo possibly likely to drop out of the top 8.

It would be a shame if the title holder didn't make it.

baggy is 99%(this 1% is for possibility of injury) in shanghai but between mario,blake and robredo (possibly davidenko) it aint over yet.

Robredo might show a good performance in Madrid ( just a guess ). Ancic is also a great player indoors. I'd like to see those in the Masters Cup.

Marcos might have won Beijing, but he also has Finals Points to defend in Basel... could be difficult this year with Federer in the draw. we will see.

Isn't there room for them both? :shrug:

Davydenko, Robredo, Blake, Ancic and Haas are the most at risk out of the contenders. Davydenko and Robredo are not expected to be a huge force indoors, and Kolya will struggle to improve a best 5 of 24pts.

Blake, apart from 4pts in Washington which can be improved, needs to perform well in the 2 remaining Masters, as do Ancic and Haas. Haas has a best 5 of 20 pts so he really is relying mainly on Masters.

Yep - Baggy will play unless injured. The others will have to be in the top 7 if Baggy is outside top 8.

there is nothing there for marcos to defend for the race, for example if he wins 120 points in next 4 tournaments he scores 120x4=480=96 race points while the same result (masters excluded)for davidenko would mean 0 (zero)points for him.

If Marcos keeps winning matches by the end of the regular season, the chances are high that he will qualify by right. He is going anway :shrug:

had mario not gotten injured, he would have already made it :mad:

hopefully he can get his game back and put in some good results at the tms events

Marcos has better chances but it is not impossible that both will end up going there.

Are Federer and Nadal the only two players who are guaranteed spots in the TMC as of right now?

Baghdatis.

last year lots of players withdrew and I wouldn't discount that from happening again, lots of players injured and tired at that time so it's more open than people think

I'd love to see the both of them there.........I can see both guys making the TMC cup competitive......... But, I think Baghdatis has more of a chance of making it.

I'd like to see them along with Blake. Get rid of Robredo and Davydenko...

It would be great to see both there but Baghdatis has had consistenetly better results than Ancic this year.

I would rather either of them be there in place of Robredo. I hope Davydenko makes in though.

no quite, dont forget that mario has missed the whole usa episode (was no.7 before injury and no. 5 in race) and is still close to get to shanghai,bhagdatis barring injury is there 100% .

Ah yeah, good point. Its a shame for Ancic, there was tons of ranking points to win for him what with the Masters and US Open after.

I think Ancic and Baghdatis will go to TMC, but Robredo won't.

I completely agree.
