Fernando Verdasco hits 100!

100 weeks in the ATP World Rankings at #10 or higher. :yeah: Quite an achievement given that he has never been ranked higher than #7. Sign of a weak era? Or a sign of consistently high-level play? Discuss...

(Also this is Roger Federer's 450th week ranked in the top 10. For comparisons with other active players, see http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=176322)

Cool. :yeah:

He's been far from consistently good though. Basically since Wimbledon last year except for the slams (QF in US, 4R in AO) he's been pretty suckful.

If he doesn't get his shit together in the clay season his reign in the top 10 won't last much longer.

He will drop to his true ranking of 20ish after his clay court points come off.

Farewell mugdasco.

He's really verry overranked. Thankfully, he will be out of top 15 after RG.

Consistently high level of play? No. He got extremely lucky at the AO (should have been R2 loser) and has been a mediocre player outside of two tournaments (New York, San Jose) since Wimbledon of last season. But congrats to him on this achievement. I think at his best he's a top 10ish player, but he's never fully recovered from overplaying during the clay season last year.

I thought he reached 100 out of 100 in mugness.

He's screwed when he can't defend all his clay points. But on the bright side, he has next to nothing to defend after the clay season other than a quarterfinal at the US Open.

Monte Carlo + Barcelona + Rome. He defends 1,460 points there. He should be around no.15 before RG.

it wont matter what he does on clay... as long as he gives a clinic to raonic and two non-ranked juniors at some point during the clay season then verdasco will be super happy with that... he's losing the plot is fisaco... his reaction after being beaten by raonic really betrayed his state of mind... just an angry frustrated man who claims a mirror as part of his entourage... i predict a meltdown, finishing around 25-30, scraping a seeding for the aussie open in 2012..

He's pretty much not going to finish as low as 25-30 unless he gets injured or completely collapses. Most likely he'll be in the mid/lower teens after RG. With that said, as Slumpdasco put it, Nando doesn't have much to defend after RG to basically San Jose 2012 outside of the US QF. So it's not as if he's in a bad situation rankings wise, and he's still competitive enough to win a fair amount of matches. But we'll see if he can really capitalize or if he's just another player again.

He past the 100 mark a long time ago, in this category.

Well done to Verdasco! Enough with the hate, he has been able to be in top 10 for 100 weeks, that's a great achievement

You can bump this thread next year when that's his ranking.

What a mighty era. Top 10 is just full of fighters and mental giants.
Fortunately Faildasco will fade off soon and drop rankings considerably.
This utter clown doesn't deserve a seed in minor tournaments.

Well, he's pretty awful for top 10, but melzer is even worse and almagro and monfils would not exactly be great

Impressive from Verdasco, 2 years in the top 10, especially since he has more mug losses than anyone since Safin.

He might be barely Top 10 in the ATP Tour but he is numero UNO at Real Tennis. Which is what matters in the end.

I was almost 100% sure that 100 had something to do with DFs, but congrats to him.

Mark my words. After his points from Monte Carlo and Barcelona are gonne this mug will never reach top 10 again.

Congratulation our friend. He will be #8-10 for another 2 years!

Because the ATP rankings aren't updated every week, some of the rankings on that list count as 2 weeks. http://img.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/nod.gif

He has been the ATP leader in doubles faults for at least the last two years :awww:
