Gilles is 17th, not bad http://tennislive.free.fr/race
edit: the top frenchman
I actually only know how to calculate the committed player. Like I was looking at Golubev's ranking pts and can't understand why they don't count more than 4 ATP500 events for him since he's not a committed player either. Oh well, I hope I don't need to bother to do that calculation for Gilles, as long as Gilles performed like a top 30 and gets pts on bigger events, then I don't have to bother.
He is actually off pace compares to his 2009 results. He has 810 pts by end of Mia that year. Granted, he was top 8 and had easier draws then so it's understandable that the path is more difficult this year. Just hope he gets to 16 by RG, if not, to be seeded 17-24 in a slam is still not bad, at least no top 8 until R16.
BTW, I'm glad you guys like this thread, I for sure have fun updating it every tournament.
P.S. few days later, figured out that the max number of ATP500 to be counted is 4 for everyone (committed or not), hence...mystery solved.
