That's surely London out of the window?

So Cuevas was set to play Youzhny, whose withdrawal sees him replaced by Ramos-Vinolas...who was Cuevas' opponent in the final round of qualifying!

Makes relatively little difference. He would have had to make the finals here to add any real points, and even if he won the tournament would probably need to go reasonably deep next week as well. Given he's not fit, no chance of that.

This way he has a week off, and can give it all in Paris. Needs a final there though.

yeah, it's over for him, even making Paris final wouldn't be enough. he should still be top 10 by the end of the year, with Melzer & Tsonga retirements. AMong his followers, only Cilic and Mugfils are still playing this week; the former needs to win Basel and to reach Paris final to threaten Youzhny and the last is 1000 pts away... so Misha can :zzz:

Berdych is almost qualified, Verdasco, Ferrer and Roddick are struggling for the last 2 spots.

Paris final would put him on 3510, ahead of Ferrer and Roddick.

Ferrer can add points by making the final this week (+120) or winning it (+320), and in Paris. Valencia final and Paris R16 puts him ahead of Youz, or winning Valencia alone.

Roddick making qfs this week is +45, and sfs +135 (although he'd need to beat nalby to get there). Basel qfs and Paris qfs puts him past Youz.

Verdasco has less chance. He could get to 3600 via valencia semis+paris semis, or 3540 via valencia final and paris qf, or 3600 by paris semi and qf or worse in valencia.

Surely Berdych has it locked up, though it has looked that way for months and he is doing his very best to blow it...

Realistically Berdych should secure his place right here in Basel, he'll take whatever result he achieves and with the draw he has he shouldn't lose before the SF even if he only plays decent tennis.

Maybe just fatigue after last week's final?

the top 6 were pretty much qualified after the us open ...Verdasco can still finish ahead of Berdych but we all know it won't happen.

It was clearly to see in the St. Pete final Youzhny won't or can't qualify to the London

That`s a pity. He is going to find it really difficult now to qualify to London :sad:.

At least Misha honestly withdrew, unlike Verdasco and Berdych who lost in 1st round. What was the point for them to come?

Yeah fair play to youzhny for pulling out honestly rather than coming for the the prize money......verdasco,berdych,berrer

Russian tennis sites write about Youzhny's back problem. Doctor advised him to make a pause
