Default Re: ATP Champions Race to Shanghai 2008

The day's action isn't quite over, but as we're interested primarily in the immediate battle for Shanghai, it is possible to give a "complete" update...

Most compelling is that Del Potro is now finally up to #9, and should he beat Gasquet in Tokyo SF, he will move to within just 2 pts of Blake, at #8.

Gasquet is on the move...now up to #19. But has he left it a little too late?

And credit should go to Roddick for scrapping his way to the SF, all for a massive 2 pt gain... Don't really see the point of him committing to Lyon, when his "best 5th" optional result will be either 22 pts (if he loses Tokyo SF) or 24 pts (if he makes Tokyo final), meaning that he'd have to play the final (31 pts for runner-up, 45 pts for winner) to gain anything...this tournament being sandwiched between Madrid and Paris.
