Anyone have the respective stat for Fedal/Joker/Murray?

If my calculations are correct, then in the week after the conclusion of the Australian Open, the following players will have been in the top 10 for the number of weeks as shown below:

Federer - 434 weeks consecutively, 442 weeks in total
Nadal - 302 weeks consecutively and in total
Djokovic - 203 weeks consecutively and in total
Murray - 135 weeks, 146 weeks in total

I have Verdasco at 93 weeks (to January 30, 2011).

By my calculations, that puts him behind the following active players:
Roger Federer 443 weeks
Andy Roddick 424 weeks
Rafael Nadal 301 weeks
Lleyton Hewitt 277 weeks
Nikolay Davydenko 268 weeks
David Nalbandian 232 weeks
Novak Djokovic 202 weeks
Juan Carlos Ferrero 175 weeks
Andy Murray 147 weeks
James Blake 133 weeks
Juan Martin Del Potro 101 weeks

Better he has the surgery and lose the ranking. It's better to catch up after the surgery than continuing playing like this for years to come. Then he will be out of the top 10 for sure, and probably won't be able to come back. At least the surgery makes it possible for him to return, and play as well as we all know he can do!

I like this era, but this is just bad...

I wanted to level it out by comparing with Clement and Schuettler in top 10 a decade ago, but they atleast made it to finals of grand slams.

To be fair, in the annals of history, Verdasco may well be compared to these players quite favourably. Maybe not Gaudio, Cash and Del Potro so much as they each have a slam, but I can't say that he's any less deserving than some of the others.

For other players that have made the top 10 and haven't maintained the same level as Verdasco, check out the links in my sig!

That's true. What people are actually asking you to do, however, is asking you to provide examples to try to support your (typically wearying) argument. Because without your (typically wearying) argument, no one would have to respond to you and the conversation would have moved on. Therefore, the onus is actually on you.

Wrong. There's no consensus in this forum concerning the strength of this era. I'm sure 99% of real tennis fans agree this era is weak. It's up to the ones who somehow think it's strong to prove their theory right.

Weak era argument is irrelevant, as Nando couldn't choose what year he was born/which era he plays in. He's making the most of it and has spent loads of weeks in the top 10. :rocker2:

Let's hope he spends many more :devil: in the top 10.

01-24-2011, 10:09 PM
I'm glad you posted this, to shut the haters up.

He's obviously a much better player than most people on here give him credit for. Sure, he's had a less than stellar last part of 2010 season, still, I have no doubt in my mind he'll bounce back. I know Fernando can play so much better than what he's shown lately. Hopefully he'll have the surgery and get back to playing like he used too!:yeah:

stop bitching around. if you don't like it then stop following tennis, it's simple as that.

now I see that people basically hate tennis... Nando is a great player, he is brain-less and shit, but his results show his true talent and value. so stop hatting, it's so pathetic.

It is a shame that he started off the year's grand slam with a bow out to Berdych. We were expecting a possible 5 setter, but it seems that his blisters and feet problem were severe. Oh well, can't always get what you want. I think he works too hard. Needs space in between to avoid these things from happening or better shoes.

I don't need to have some kind of huge respect for athletes, mate. Get a grip and put life in perspective. They're just tennis players. They're not physicians, engineers, lawyers, etc. Their contribution to society is just about 0. Maybe it's time for you to grow up and learn what's really important in life.

This not true, IMO.

As sportsmen, they bring pride to the country they represent. They give inspiration with their commitment and hard work. And they provide dreams for kids with their achievements.

As entertainers, they give joy for people who watch them. They make good economic impact when they play in tournaments. Most tournaments are making a profit, good business for tv stations, hotels and restaurants, jobs for umpire and lines persons, etc.

But the most important thing that they contribute for society is,... wait for it,.... non other than our beloved MTF. Without these tennis players, we wouldn't be having so much fun here, would we?

I love MTF with its tards and trolls.:D
