Re: Rafael Nadal plans surgery, out of Bercy

I had a laparoscopical appendectomy. It only leaves three small scars, the largest of them in the belly button and the other two are almost invisible. In such a picture, nothing needs to be visible.

Re: Sydney SF: Troicki defeats Muller 6-2 6-4

It is not exactly correct to say that he is not defending points. With the points from Sydney he has 15 points from 15 non-mandatory events. By the US open, he will lose about 125 of his current...

Re: London - Who will qualify?

Cilic has also qualified. Even iff he will not be top 8, then he will be the top grand slam winner ranked 8-20.

Re: Has anyone earned back to back SE spots in Masters 1000 events?

Is there really an SE spot for Miami? The qualifying matches start after IW ends.

Re: Will Federer qualify for the Masters Finals 2013?

While Wawrinka and Gasquet may play more tournaments, they have less to gain. Both played more than 6 optional tournaments in 2013, While Federer played only 4, so they need to win small tournaments...

Re: The Live ATP Rankings Thread

How about the Wimbledon seedings: in both the race for #2 and #4, the grass points are pretty close, so it is likely the the seed

For #2:
Federer trails Murray by 1020 points.

Re: Nadal will skip IW and Miami

How do they count the 12 years? Nadal turned pro in 2001 so if they count calendar years, he also meets this criterion.

Re: "Race to Paris"

I think the chance is very small.

Federer should overtake Murray in February (Rotterdam and Dubai). Murray might get a small advantage in IW/Miami (and might not), but is almost certain to lose it...

Re: Who will qualify to WTF in London 2012?

Going by the letter of the rulebook, qualifying is by the rankings on 5/11/2012, which means that the...

Re: Toronto Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated August 1, 2012)

In 2008 Rogers cup ended two weeks prior to Olympic tennis tournament start, thus it had the usual strong field of a masters (only Nalbandian missing of the top 10).

In 2016 the Olympic games will...

Re: Unofficial Live ATP Rankings

Re: From newswire:Nadal withdraws from Olympics

This is wrong. Nadal can count 6 optional tournaments, and he only played 4 this year, so he would have a non-countable tournament only if he played olympic games and two other optionals...

Actually, Federer became 28 in August of 2009, and won AO in 2010.

The same is true, of course, for Nadal as well. He beat Federer in the semi final in RG 2005.

Re: Question about RG scheduling: Why schedule men's and women's matches at the same

That cannot be true, unless all 64 matches of the first round played on Monday. There are not enough days between Tuesday and the next Saturday for 7 rounds seperated by one day each.

Re: Possibility final not played? - Final rescheduled to Monday 12:00

No. All quarterfinalists got QF loser points, as the rulebook clearly states (9.03D).

Re: Frauderer takes a page out of Wozniacki's book.

After RG 2010, Federer was ranked #2 with two slams and a slam final. Nadal was number one, with one slam and no slam finals.

The ranking system is not only about slams.

Re: Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the

A small correction if a player gets a bye in the first round and loses in the second round, he only gets first round loser points = 10 points in this case.

Re: If Federer wins Madrid he will be ranked #2...

Actually, the 9105 is after dropping Rome final from last year, so (for example) Nadal will be seeded 2 in RG if he loses Rome final and Federer loses before the semifinal.

A question about second serves

Why do most (all) players hit weaker second serves? In some cases it seems as if the correct decision is to hit a "first serve" even on second serve. It will result in more double faults, obviously,...
