I'd be surprised if a match between an unranked player and someone ranked 662 in the world has even been played at a Masters Series event :eek: :p

They've clearly rearranged the rankings to suit players with beauty and style.

I was trying to work it out, but haven't managed to so far....it would appear they don't like the name Andy :awww: Roddick and Murray are both unranked :lol:

Ferrero is ranked 47 - he's the highest ranked player I can find.

A prize for anyone who can find the new world #1.

Kuerten is #3 :banana:

Hewitt #22
Moya #23

It seems to favour the elder, more experienced players.

Federer would surely still be #1 then ;)

Nope, I give up. Can't find the world #2.
I've found almost the rest of the top 20.

Lapentti is ranked 6! Must be a ranking from about 5 years ago.

Jimnik
04-17-2007, 09:05 PM
At first I thought it might be the rankings from 7 years ago when Kiefer, Lapentti, Kuerten and Agassi were all up there. But Sampras, Kafelnikov and all the retired players seem to be unranked.

Only players who stil have points today are ranked, so no number 2 :lol:

Purple Rainbow

It's probably the ranking from 2000 at some time. Retired players are left out, thus you won't find a #2 as that was likely Pete Sampras at the time. Likewise you won't find a #4, as that was Kafelnikov.

But this is just a theory and I don't want to check every weeks ranking of 2000.

The January 3rd 2000 ranking comes really close.

I'm quite sure that it's the 22 November 1999, but check out these rankings:

http://www.atptennis.com/5/en/rankings/EntrySystem/default.asp?RankDate=11%2F22%2F1999&range=1-50&country=

They're not in the correct order according to points. :scratch:


If you look at Kiefer's ranking history, he was at #5 for only one week:

I don't know how many sets it will take but there is no reason why Davydenko shouldn't win this match.

At the beginning of 2000 the ATP changed to the current Best 18 system with mandatory tournaments. It looks like they have converted the points to the new system but ordered the players under the old system.
