Banzuke for the French Open 2010

Here is how the top players line up:


Roger Federer (Dai-Y) and Rafael Nadal as Yokozuna (=Grand Champions)
Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro as Ozeki (=Champions)
Andy Murray , Andy Roddick (a former Ozeki) and Marin Cilic as Sekiwake (=Junior Champion I)
Robin Soderling and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (both former Sekiwake) as Komusubi (=Junior Champions II)


The top Maegashira (=non-champion) ranks are filled by:


Fernando Verdasco (former Komusubi) and David Ferrer (former Sekiwake) form an all-Spanish M1
Mikhail Youzhny (former Komusubi) and Fernando Gonzalez (former Sekiwake) at M2,
Gael Monfils (former Komusubi) and Ivan Ljubicic (former Sekiwake) at M3,
Tomas Berdych and Juan Carlos Ferrero (former Ozeki) at M4, and
John Isner and Sam Querrey form an all-American M5.

No player is on a Yokozuna run. Andy Murray would be promoted to Ozeki if he reaches the semifinal. Del Potro withdrew with a wrist injury and will be demoted to Sekiwake following the French Open

Why is Ciliv above Tsonga and Söderling?

Why is Ciliv above Tsonga and Söderling?

Cilic: subsquent GS QF+SFs yield a Sekiwake promotion.

Soderling: was Sekiwake, missed the QF at the Australian Open and hence got demoted to Komusubi.

Tsonga: one SF (AU) in the past 2 GSs results in Komusubi.

More generally, only GS results enter these rankings (similar to ozumo, where there are 6 grand tournamnets per year).

No offense, but whats the point of this?
I mean.. what is it used for? Just some little facts or what?

Just an attempt to look at GS tennis through the lense of another sport and its ranking system.

I my view this works fairly well, in particular the all-time Sanyaku lists (e.g., who made it to Yokozuna in the open era, who to Ozeki, etc.).
