If Tsonga and Del Potro are OUT then the seeds are up to the 34th that today is Simon with 1225 points but he defends 180 in Cincinati so that makes 1045 + what he gets next week, Benneteau with 1239 also defends 180 and also Hewitt with 1350. Nalbandian is nowadays 37 with 1145 and he doesn't defend a signle point next week. I think he has great chances to be seeded. If he wins the tournament he will be 18 because Ljubicic will loose 35 points, Isner won't be able to have more than 45 points, Monfils will probably reach 3rd round so he will be better ranked than David, and then if somebody else can pass him he needs to reach at least semis so probably David will be 18 if he wins the tournament, without Tsonga and Del Potro, he will be one of the top 16 seeds. Hope that happens.

Lo que importa también sigue para Del Potro y su equipo de trabajo es que su regreso al circuito no tiene fecha. Y que nadie se quiere apurar. Se sabe que no podrá defender el título en el torneo que comenzará el 30 en Nueva York y que se retrasará en el ranking. Es más, saldrá del top ten luego de casi dos años.

i don't think nalbandian will be seeded even he is in the top 32 ranked players cause he used his protected ranking to gain entry. if i am not mistaken you cannot be ranked if you used your protected ranking.

They are withdrawing before the deadline, that's fair. I suspect Isner is going to wait until the last possible second, so we'll have at least one lucky loser. I think everyone else will make a decision in time, but I would not be surprised to see one or two guys who can barely stand play a 1st round match just to get the prize money. It's an economic reality for the lower ranked guys.

Some of these guys know damn well they cannot play the US Open, I do NOT like it when players wait until the last moment AFTER they are supposed to and take away the chances of someone else, HEALTHY, and lesser ranked, to be able to participate in the tournament. That is selfish and plain stupid and against the rules. The cut off of when you exit the event before the QD and MD, that's when it needs to be done.

I basically agree with you except two points.
1. Some players legitimately want to watch themselves until the last moment because their injuries are relatively recent (e.g. Isner).
2. Late withdrawal helps OTHER players (LL) instead of those high in the Alt list. Therefore, it's not entirely correct to say that " take away the chances of someone else, HEALTHY, and lesser ranked, to be able to participate in the tournament."

Again, I agree with you and wish those injured players withdraw earlier, before Qualifying begins.:)

#2 is totally right, you are correct in that it does give an opportunity to someone. But that opportunity is given to someone who is literally a loser in the event. That can be taken by a guy like Massu, who would never qualify, or Young, and then open a WC spot for someone else. So it's like a chain reaction of negative events that can be avoided.

I agree with you on #1 also but at the same time, there is a deadline. If you aren't ready by the deadline, that should be it. That's basically expanding the rules for a player who still likely will WD. I remember Simon doing this at Australia, keeping his name in the draw when he admittedly knew he wouldn't or couldn't play. It's something that needs to be addressed.

Agreed on both. Deeds like Simon's should carry penalty and Isner's not. As far as I know, they won't draw any penalty if they showed up and consulted with the tournament doc before the draw is announced....

If you know for a fact that you're not going to play then you should withdraw before the qualifying draw is done, that way the next entry gets in instead of a Lucky Loser. Sooner would be better, but definately before the deadline. If you think you may play, and may not well then by all means I think you have the right to stay entered until you decide that you will withdraw, or play.

I remember Simon doing this at Australia, keeping his name in the draw when he admittedly knew he wouldn't or couldn't play.

Simon flew to Australia, played in an Exho the week before Australian Open to test and see if he can play the slam or not. The quali draw came out before he played in that Exho. Then he lost all 3 exho matches quite miserably, only that then when he's convinced that he couldn't play Aussie Open. Do you think he went thru all those trouble of flying 24 hrs to Australia if he wasn't even thinking about playing that slam? If he's guilty of anything, he's guilty of being stupid thinking in his condition he's able to play in a slam (he's known to be stubborn as hell). In fact, when he decided to fly to Australia, he had all the intend to play the Aussie Open, but after playing some matches the week before the Open, he realized it just wasn't possible. That little "experiment" as he called it cost him money (expenses for traveling to Australia without entering the tournament), plus at least 2 weeks of recovery time (as discussed by the French press). He said afterward that it's probably a bad decision wanting to play Aussie and getting there and ended up not able to play, but he also admitted that it's hard to not play a slam until he had felt that he had tried all he might before given up.

If you know about Simon, he is one player who's unwilling to give up play. That's why he was stupid enough to come back so early in Feb and ended up getting himself hurt again. He carried that knee injury since Roland Garro 2009 and ended up playing with it for almost an entire year. But somehow he thought if he can move then he can play :rolleyes:, (and sometimes even if he can't move, he still played, ie Bercy 09). We fans love him for who he is but sometimes his stubbornness is very annoying.

lalaland
08-24-2010, 04:31 AM
BTW, I also think that all the players who have direct entry to the MD, earned their place to be there. So they have all the right to hold on to their position til the last minute to decide if they have to w/d or not. I don't think players purposely don't w/d until the last min in order to ruin another player's chance for MD. Those players who didn't have direct entry to the MD means they didn't earn that privilege, so it's nothing wrong with that they have to be on the mercy of someone withdraw in time. It's not that the MD players who didn't w/d took away the alternates' chance, it's the other way round that the alternates inherit the chance because someone has to give the spot up most likely very unwillingly but unable to play.

Not really. He can't meet any of the first top-4 seeds before the Q. His theoretical 4th round is against one of the 5-8 TS. The only difference being #9 instead of #8 is that in his R3 he has to meet one of the 17-24 TS instead of one of the 25-32 TS.

My gripe with withdrawing late is not so much with who gets in but the seedings overall.

When simon withdrew in A.O, Ferrer as the 17th seed got elevated to the 16th seed (such that he would face a 1-4 seed in the 4th round) but Querrey as the 25th seed was not elevated to that of the 17-24 seed (he played the 7th seed Roddick in the 3rd round). Instead Isner as the 33rd seed got a draw as if he was the 17-24th seed (playing 12th seed Monfils in the 3rd round).

I just hope Isner withdraws (if he's not going to play) before the seedings come out so he doesn't disrupt the draw.
