Career high for Dent (when it is final, that is)?

Funny that the difference between 23 and 28 was only 75 points or less. Okay, so it's not that funny.

I admire Tommy's rise in the rankings despite that loss. Bravo!

Not nearly as impressive as Max, who moved up a whole two spots despite losing in the first round. Unfortunately for him, big points need to be defended soon at Rotterdam.

nitsansh
01-22-2004, 06:23 PM

Yes. Verkerk is the only player in the top 24 that had points from Milan in his best 18 tournaments score, but he lost big time - 175 pts for his win were deducted and 5 pts were added as the new 18th best tournament, a net loss of 170 pts. If not for that he would have been 3 places higher on 1485 pts.
Bjorkman would have been in 25th place (1128 pts) if he didn't lose 45 pts in Milan (40 net pts), and because I wasn't sure who should be in 25th I left it open until I do the calculation...

Day 4 report + day 5 preview
--------------------------------
There were no changes in the standing between day 3 and day 4, either because the gaps were to big, or players who added 40 pts for 2nd round wins were ranked in consecutive places (Henman and Phillipoussis, Hewitt and Novak).

On day 5 the top half of the draw will play the 3rd round. 7 players in the top 24 will attempt to add 75 pts to their score, and wins for them can make significant changes.

1. Win for Agassi over Enqvist will lift him to 5th place over Schuettler.
2. Win for Srichaphan over Kuerten will lift him above Henman and Phillippoussis to 9th place. His carrer high, I suppose?
3. Win for Schalken over Melzer will lift him to 13th place above Hewitt and Novak.
4. If Grosjean wins (against Hrbaty, who is unbeaten in 12 matches since the new year) and Schalken loses, they exchange places between 15th-16th.
5. If Kuerten beat Srichaphan, and Schalken loses, they will be tied in 15th or 16th place, the former if Grosjean loses, the latter if he wins).
6. Win for Dent over Roddick will lift him to 21st, ahead of Fish and Mirnyi.

The race for #1 spot
----------------------
As you can see, Federer is the projected world #1 on February 2nd, unless Roddick can get 140 pts more than he does.
Let's see how that can be done:
1. If Federer lose in 3rd round, Roddick should get to quarterfinal or better to remain #1 (he gets 175 pts for QF).
2. If Federer lose in 4th round (gets 75 pts), Roddick should get to semifinal or better (375 pts). These were their achievements last year, so they'll match their current scores.
3. If Federer lose in QF (175 pts), Roddick should also get to semifinal (375 pts) or better.
4. If Federer lose in SF (375 pts), Roddick should get to the final (625 pts).
5. If Roddick and Federer will meet in the final, the winner will be #1 (win = 925 pts).

Ferrerro is also in the race for #1 spot, but to do that he should get 330 pts more than Federer, and also 190 pts more than Roddick.
Ferrero can do that if he wins the title, because then Roddick will be no better than runner up and Federer no better than losing semifinalist (he is in the same half of the draw as Ferrero).
If Ferrero gets to the final and lose (625 pts), in order for him to become #1 Roddick should get no further than semifinal (375 pts) and Federer no further than quarterfinal (175 pts).
If Ferrero gets only to the semifinal (375 pts), in order for him to be #1 Roddick should get no further than quarterfinal (175 pts) and Federer should lose in 3rd round (no more pts).

01-22-2004, 07:57 PM
Race for #4 place
-------------------
This is very simple... if Agassi regains his title he will stay in #4, if he doesn't - Coria will be #4.

Race for #5
-------------
If Agassi lose in the final or semifinal, he is secured in 5th place.
If he loses in quarterfinal, Nalbandian can get as high as 5th place with the title.
If Agassi lose in 4th round, Henman can tie his score of 2575 pts if he is the champion.
If Agassi lose in 3rd round (IE tommorrow to Enqvist), than Philippoussis also has a shot at #5 if he wins the title.
Also, in this case Nalbandian and Schuettler will be tied on 2510 pts if Nalby is runner-up.
It's impossible that more than one of Nalby, Poo and Henman overtake Schuettler or Aggasi, because they are on the same half of the draw and only one can get to the final.

Thanks for the race possible outcomes calculations, nitsansh.

Verkerk had 10 from Munich 03 to go on as his New "Best 5th" which puts him at 1320 points

25th is Costa with 1115

Thanks for the correction.
I guess my mistake was that I took his Basel score which was the 19th best score on my file, not noticing that last week when his Auckland score entered the ranking Munich was pushed out to become the new 19th score. In practice, the score from Auckland (75 pts) replaces the score from Milan (175 pts) and he should lose 100 pts compared to the ranking of January 12.

According to my calculation Robby Ginepri has now 1125 pts and he moved to 25th place. He should lose 35 pts (2nd round) from Melbourne and also 55 pts for win in Waikoloa challenger. Instead he gets 15 pts from San Jose (his new 18th score, which would expire in 2 weeks) and 150 pts so far in Melbourne this year. That's a net gain of 75 pts from last week's ranking.
Is that correct?

As far as I see, no one of the players ranked further down is in position to enter the top 25 soon. Blake has just equaled his achievement in Melbourne last year so he should have 975 pts and need 2 more wins to enter the top 25. Ferreira lost 450 pts from last year (SF) and is 3 wins away from getting them back. Nadal was ranked too low to enter AO last year but he should drop 35 pts from Hamburg challenger. So far he got 75 pts in Melbourne, so his current score is 917 pts. 2 more wins will get him into the top 25.
The other players remaining in the tournament are outside the top-50. They need to get to the SF at least to make the top 25.

Day 5 report + day 6 preview
--------------------------------
Before the start of the daily report, please note that a new column was added which shows the ranking yesterday, in order to see the movements from day to day. For my own convenience, the Rnk and RYs columns will alternate their positions, so please note that some days the current ranking (Rnk) will be in the 1st column from the left and some days 2nd from left. This will allow me to update only one column each day...
Also note the color coding. The players in red are into the 4th round, those in blue will play the 3rd round tommorrow (today if you're in Australia or most of Asia right now), those in black will play no further part in this tournament.

Now let's see what changes happend in the top-25 ranking today, and what's the prospect for tommorrow and further on.

The top 2 places won't change for the next 2 days at least. Roddick's win today narrowed the gap between him and projected #1 Federer to 65 pts. If Federer lose his 3rd round match tommorrow (against WC Reid that's highly unlikely) and Roddick win his 4th round encounter with Schalken on Sunday, then Roddick will regain the top spot.
Ferrero is locked in 3rd place unless he gets to the semifinal even if Federer or Roddick lose their next matches.

Agassi went to 5th place ahead of Schuettler, and will remain there at least until the final on Sunday February 1st. Either that Agassi should win the title to go above Coria to 4th place, or Nalbandian should win to go above Agassi to 5th.
Schuettler will remain in 6th at least until the final as well. Nalbandian, Henman or Philippoussis should win the final to overtake him.
So the ranking between 4th and 6th are unchanged for the next 9 days if not more, and Moya in 7th place is safe at least until the semifinal - Nalbandian need to get to the final to overtake him.

Meanwhile, the ranking from 9th to 16th are bound for frequent changes, as only 125 pts seperate Srichaphan in 9th position as of today and Grosjean in 16th, and all except Massu in this group are still in the tournament.
Today, Srichaphan moved 2 places up to 9th, and Schalken moved 2 places up to 13th, but this could be reversed tommorrow. Wins for Philippoussis or Henman would put them back above Srichaphan, while wins for Hewitt or Novak would put them back above Schalken, as well as Massu.

All the players ranked 17th to 24th are out of the tournament so their relative ranking is solid, but they could be overtaken by players further down.
Ginepri is the new kid in the top-25 from this morning, and if he wins his next match on Sunday he could move as high as 21. But before that, Costa who is ranked 26th can move to joint-22nd (levelled with Mirnyi and Dent) if he wins tommorrow.

How about Marat's rank?

jtipson
01-24-2004, 01:09 PM
So far, Marat has only got 75 points more than last year, so won't improve his ranking much - gets him to about 70.

Day 6 report
--------------
as previousely said, there couldn't be changes in the top 8, and there won't be any changes in the next 2 days either, as no one in this group can move up in the 4th round.

In the 9-16 range, though, players change places daily back and forth. Today, Phillippousis moved 2 places up to 9th, and Hewitt moved 2 places up to 12th. There were no moves from 15 to 26 and further down.

What moves can we expect tommorrow??
Srichaphan who dropped from 9th to 10th today, can move back to 9th tommorrow if he beats Agassi.
Schalken can jump from 14th place as high as 10th if he beats Roddick.
Grosjean can also move 4 places up, 16th to 12th, if he beats Ginepri.
Ginepri also can move 4 up, from 25 to 21, if he beats Grosjean.

I don't suppose anyone knows what Pavel and Canas' new rankings will be, do they? They've made good comebacks...

nitsansh
01-25-2004, 11:47 PM
With his points so far (round 4), Pavel will move from 67 to around 53. Win on Monday may lift him into the top-50.
Canas will jump from 248 to around 142. If he wins his 4th round match he would be about 115.
Also, Arazi climbs from 51 to around 43. Another win could lift him into the top-40.

Sjengster
01-25-2004, 11:51 PM
Wow, I didn't realise Canas was so far down in the rankings that he needs to make the semis to be Top 100 again. Remarkable resurgence from Arazi as well. Thanks very much!

Day 7 report
-------------
The only change in the ranking was Grosjean's climb of 4 berths from 16 to 12. The Frenchman has regained his points from last year, but gains of Srichaphan and Henman in comparison to their achievements last year have pushed him 2 places down in the ranking. He must win another match and get through to the semifinal to regain his 10th position, or even improve to 9th if Philippoussis lose to Arazi on Monday.

Agassi needs one more win to secure his 5th place. If not, Nalbandian can climb to 5th if he wins the title.

Roddick narrowed the gap at the top to 40 pts. If Roddick gets through to the SF and Federer doesn't, than Andy remain in 1st place.

Hewitt is the only player in action in the top-25 who can move up on Monday. If he beat Federer he would get back into the top-10. If Philipoussis lose Hewitt can climb to #9.

With everyone from 14th to around 40 out of the tournament, the nearest threat to the top 25 is Arazi, who would overtake Ginepri in 25th place if he gets to the semifinal.
Pavel should get to the final for a place in the top-25 (he would be 22nd), Safin should win the title to get into the top-25 in 18th place.

nitsansh
01-26-2004, 12:35 AM
Canas was out injured from last year's AO until September. After his return, he lost 1R in Costa do Sauipe, 1R in a challenger in Seoul, failed to qualify in Tokyo and only managed wins in ATP main draw in Shanghai, where he reached the QF as a WC.
Then he took a 3 months break and started the new year with a win in a challenger at Nouvelle (New Caledonia). Then he lost 1R in Adelaide.
So he actually won more matches in Melbourne than he won in all ATP level tournaments the previous year.

nitsansh
01-26-2004, 03:08 PM
Day 8 report
-------------
No change today in the top-25, and in fact the top 40 or so.
The only player who could move up was Hewitt, and he lost to Federer and went out of the tournament. Hewitt, therefor, will remain in 13th place unless Arazi win the tournament, which will lift him to #10.
Arazi is now at around 40th place. If he gets to the semifinal he'll climb to #25, just behind countryman El Aynaoui. If he reach the final he'll be #18, and as said above, win in the final will get him into the top-10.

From tommorrow, the serious business begins, the battle for the top 3 spot between Roddick, Federer and Ferrero.
Win for Roddick over Safin on Tuesday will put him back at the top, but his stay there could last only a day if Federer beat Nalbandian on Wednesday.
On the other hand, if Roddick lose on Tuesday, he could drop to #3 on Wednesday if Ferrero beat Arazi.
No changes are expected in positions 4-7 in the next 2 days.
Grosjean can move 3 places up to 9th if he beat Agassi. That would deny Srichaphan a place in the top-10, presumably for the 1st time.

nitsansh, suppose that Roddick loses and Nalbandian wins, what happens then? You have to bear with me; I'm not familiar with the points scoring system.

Deboogle!.
01-26-2004, 03:20 PM
If Andy loses and David wins, the points would stay as they are right now. I believe.

Ma. Estefania
01-26-2004, 03:21 PM
Thanx for that information. I really suck for knowing the rankings, etc. Then thanks. :)

nitsansh
01-26-2004, 04:29 PM
The points are as follows:
Win in QF - 200
Win in SF - 250
Win in final - 300

As far as the top 3 are concerned, if one of them takes the title, he'll be #1.
If none of them is the champion, Federer will be #1 unless Roddick gets at least one round further or Ferrero 2 rounds further.

If Agassi wins the title, he'll regain 4th place, otherwise Coria will go to 4th.
If Agassi lose his next match and Nalbandian wins the title, Nalby goes to #5, Agassi drop to #6 and Schuettler to #7. If Nalbandian lose the final he ties with Schuettler in 6th. If Nalby fails to reach the final Schuettler stays alone in 6th.
If Grosjean wins the title he overtakes Moya in 7th (8th if Nalbandian reach the final).
If Grosjean reach the final and Nalbandian lose next match then Grosjean overtakes him in 8th.
If Grosjean win next match and reach semifinal he climbs to 9th.

Day 9 report
--------------
There was no change in the ranking today, except for Safin's move to approx 44th place, following his win over world #1 Roddick.
But for Roddick, defeat means his #1 status will come to an end next Monday.
For his main rival, Federer, it means that he stays on top of the projected ranking unless JC Ferrero wins the title (possibly beating Federer in the SF), or gets to the final while Federer lose in QF.

The other match of the day, in which Agassi won when Grosjean retired injured in the 2nd set, had implications on the ranking between 4th and 12th.
While Agassi maintains his challenge to regain 4th place from Coria, his win today has secured that Nalbandian can't overtake him in 5th place.
Grosjean's departure means Philipoussis is confirmed in 9th place, Nalbandian and Moya can't be lower than 8th, and Srichaphan and Henman will stay in 10th and 11th spots respectively unless Arazi is crowned as champion. But that is still a remote prospect - he is 3 wins away of achieving that.
Also solid at least until Sunday are the players ranked 13th to 17th, and those in 18th to 24th can't move at least until Friday.
However, Ginepri could lose his place in the top-25 by Wednesday, if Arazi beat Ferrero and gets to the semifinal.
The only change inside the top 25 tommorrow could be between 2nd and 3rd. A day after losing his chance to stay as #1, Roddick could drop to 3rd if Ferrero beat Arazi. Andy has been in the top 2 since US Open. Ferrero dropped from 2nd when Federer won the Masters Cup last November.

The result of the other match tommorrow won't bring immediate changes on the ranking, but nevertheless will have important implications on the standing. If Federer wins he will not be confirmed yet as #1, unless Ferrero lose to Arazi. If he loses and Ferrero wins, JC will overtake him with another win in SF.
If Nalbandian wins he will still need another win to overtake Moya and possibly Schuettler. If he loses, Schuettler, Moya and himself will be confirmed in 6th, 7th and 8th respectively.

day 10 report
---------------
Ferrero's win over Arazi lift him to 2nd place and dropped Roddick to 3rd.
But Federer also went through to the semifinal, which means JC must win the title to climb to #1.
The projected #1 and #2 will meet in the semifinal on Friday.
Since Arazi and Nalbandian lost, all players between 6th and 17th are locked in their current places until the week of February 9th, when the ATP circuit resumes after a break for Davis Cup matches.

Day 12 report
---------------
Roger Federer confirmed his acsend to #1 position as he beat JC Ferrero in straight sets.
The gap between them is 580 pts, and could get as wide as 880 if Federer beat Safin in the final on Sunday. That would ensure Federer will stay at #1 at least until Indian Wells.

Hrbaty only went up one place despite going two rounds better than last year? Is that because you already took Milan points off or what?
