Re: Davy's 2013

Any news on Davy? Hope he will make another great run in Doha.
H2H still 6-5 against Nadal, beat him 4 times in a row..

Re: Davy's 2013

His zero pointer for Basel is already remitted. He is on 890 points now, which is 5 points more(!) than in his 2012 YE rankings after all.
He actually didn't have had to "appeal", but at least to provide the ATP "verified and approved medical forms".
That means he actively had to do something for his ranking points adjustment and that doesn't look like retirement to me.
Btw, he didn't yet officially announce his retirement either.
So ...I would interpret all that as some fairly good signs at least.

Already around November 19th (in only 3 weeks from now) the entry lists for the first week of the 2014 season will be out anyway. They might be worth a look for us!

Re: Davy's 2013

He withdrew from Basel too.
http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...php?p=18036801
So his season is over.


...I don't want to raise false hopes, but I personally believe he will be competing in 2014 again, after all.

Firstly, his injury (it's the other wrist this time) sounds like being healed up by December.
http://sports.ndtv.com/tennis/news/2...malaysian-open

Secondly, this season he won a whole 25% more in prize money than in 2012, and his ranking remained pretty much the same as well.

Of course, I can't tell about his family affairs etc., but in tennis regards things are looking quite well, actually.
So why would he retire?

I believe he will retire when his ranking drops too deep and the losing streaks are getting too long,
but not particularly when a season ends.


...A first glimmer of hope for him being willing to play in 2014 would be noticeable if he successfully appeals his Basel zero-pointer in front of the ATP.
His YE ranking points would increase then to a total of 890.
If he doesn't appeal they would remain 870, and that at least wouldn't be a good sign in respect of 2014, even though not an outright disqualifier either.
The appeal might be concluded around November, so I assume at the latest by December we will know.

Re: Davy's 2013

Basel is his farewell tournament it seems. Good luck Davy.

Re: Davy's 2013

well .. yeah..
So now he's got:
USO series - 45 Points to defend.
Asian swing - 90 Points to defend. (180 if we count Metz)
Indoor swing - 45 points.

270 points till the end of the year. That's a lot maybe if he defends his USO points or go 1 round further he'll do it and end the year inside top 45.

Davy good luck against Pospisil in your first Masters QF since 2010 Paris-Bercy.
