Angry "Roddick moves up rankings despite not playing" - Idiotic article!

Seriously, they pay people to write this crap?

Quote:
Want to know when your rankings system needs to be revamped? When a guy that hasn't played a competitive match in six months moves up in the rankings despite not playing the game he's improving his number in.

A tweet from Tennis Stats pointed out that Andy Roddick, the man that stepped away after losing to Juan Martin del Potro in the 2012 US Open, remarkably moved from 42nd to 40th in the world despite spending most of his time this month at Pebble Beach playing golf, not tennis.

How in the world did this happen? Well, it's complicated in the sense that the ATP rankings are insane and make no sense. Basically the rankings are a review of the past 52 weeks of play, so Roddick, who won twice before Wimbledon last season, is riding that success in the rankings despite not playing anymore, and two guys ahead of him (Viktor Troicki and Nikolay Davydenko) dropped down due to poor play.

It's so ridiculous that even Roddick retweeted the line from Tennis Stats, and no doubt got a good chuckle out of it as he continued to not play competitive tennis, and with the drought that is men's American tennis, maybe Roddick is still their best hope to break into the top 10 if people continue to fall early in tournaments.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

However Roddick playing golf for 52 weeks still deserves to be ranked above Troicki.

Although it's a stupid article, I DO think that the ATP needs to actively remove players from the rankings once they've expressed no desire to play anymore. I get why they don't remove players (because they don't "add" players), but they need to. It just makes more sense, IMO.

Stupid article. No matter what ranking system you have there would still be points dropping off players ranking tables while retired players who are still on the rankings wouldn't lose any, the only way to solve this would be just to delete retired players from the rankings which they did do at Ljubicic request, guess Roddick wanted to stay.
