Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Thursday: Schuettler again #5

The flip-flop between Agassi and Schuettler continues. Schuettler's win over world #1 Roddick put him back in 5th place, which Agassi regained last night. But this time Schuttler's time at #5 could last only few hours, as win for Agassi over Nalbandian in the night match would put him back in #5.
Schuettler now need just one more win to overtake Coria in 4th place, but if Coria win his next match against Moya, which is about to start shortly, Schuettler will have to wait until the semifinal on Saturday for his chance to get to #4. If Agassi beat Nalbandian he will also be in a position to takeover Coria in #4 with a win in the semifinal, and his rival in the semi could be Schuettler... if that happends, only one of them would be able to pass Coria and therefor Guillermo won't drop to #6.
Win for Coria over Moya will also keep alive his slim chance to overtake Federer in #3, at least until Roger meet Ferrero tomorrow. Defeat for Coria will put him on the brink of elimination from the semifinals.
Roddick's loss means he can't reach 1000 points at the end of the year.
Let's take a look at the battle for #7 place... if Nalbandian beat Agassi tonight he will get to the semifinal, and win there could put him ahead of Moya in #7. Moya is in must-win situation in his upcoming match against Coria. If he wins this match and also the match against Schuettler tommorrow, Nalby will have to win the final to advance to #7.

Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Thursday: Schuettler again #5

Coria's win over Moya confirmed that Schuttler has qualified to the SF, where he'll meet the winner of the night match between Agassi and Nalbandian. Moya was eliminated, and the winner of Coria vs Roddick tommorrow will qualify in 2nd place and meet Federer in the SF.
Coria has extended his lead over Schuettler to 25 pts, and therefor Schuettler must win the SF to overtake him. It's the same for Agassi, and since they could meet in the semifinal and only one can win, Coria can be no lower than 5th.
Moya's elimination mean that Nalbandian will be #7 if he reaches the final.
So far, the only place confirmed is Roddick's #1, but after Agassi-Nalbandian match either Agassi in #6 or Moya in 7th and Nalbandian in 8th will also be decided.
Positions 2 & 3 could be decided tommorrow, but for #4 and 5 we'll have to wait at least until Saturday.

Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Thursday: Schuettler again #5

There is a good chance Federer's reward for finishing first in his group will be playing Roddick. I am sure he would prefer to play Schuettler in the semis although on current form he should have no problem beating Roddick.

Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Thursday: Schuettler again #5

If you ask me... the best players so far are Federer and Agassi, and they are my favorites to reach the final...

But let's get back to business...
As expected, Schuettler's stay in #5 lasted just about 6 hours, until Agassi's win over Nalbandian last night put him back in 5th place and relegated Schuettler to 6th.
The loser of Agassi vs Schuettler semifinal on Saturday will end the year in #6. The winner will overtake Coria in 4th place, unless Guillermo beat Roddick tonight and Federer tommorrow and reach the final. If that happends, the winner in the final will end the year in #4 and the loser in #5. Which means that Coria must win the title to stay in #4, and otherwise he will be #5.
Schuettler is now on court in his last round-robin match against Moya. If he wins this match, Schuettler will once again pass Agassi into 5th place, but as far as the year-end ranking is concerned, this match is meaningless.
Earlier this afternoon (Houston time), Federer easily beat Ferrero and maintained his chance for the year-end #2, and secured himself the 3rd place.
Following Nalbandian's loss to Agassi last night, it was confirmed that he will end this year in #8 and Moya in #7, so the places left to be decided are 2nd and 3rd between Ferrero and Federer, 4th, 5th and 6th between Coria, Agassi and Schuettler.
Those places will be decided by the results of the semifinals and final:
If Federer win the SF (against Roddick or Coria) and the final he'll be #2 and Ferrero #3, otherwise he'll be #3 and Ferrero #2.
If Coria beat Roddick tonight, Federer tommorrow and either Agassi or Schuettler on Sunday he'll be #4, if he loses any match he'll be #5.
The loser between Agassi and Schuettler will be #6, the winner will be #4 if Coria is eliminated before the final. If Coria reaches the final, whoever wins on Sunday will be #4 and the loser will be #5.

Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Friday: Federer stay on course to #2

Actually, the Schuettler vs Moya match WAS significant. Because of his loss, Schuettler can't overtake Coria if he wins the SF and Coria lose in his semi, and so does Agassi, who could be edged out by Coria by 1 point!
But first, Coria has to beat Roddick this evening... if he doesn't, he'll end the year in #5 behind the winner of Agassi vs Schuettler, and ahead of the loser...

Rogi should really go for the no.2 spot so that he will have easier way next year to overtake Roddork. Keep going Rogi!

Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Saturday: Agassi climbs to #4!

The battle for places #4, 5 & 6 has finally settled. Agassi's win over Schuettler in the 1st semifinal lift him above Coria to 4th place, and left Schuettler in 6th.
That was enabled by Coria's loss to Roddick last night. If Coria had won, he would have stayed in 4th place, barely 1 point ahead of Agassi.

The only issue left to be resolved is the struggle for 2nd and 3rd places. If Federer wins the match in progress against Roddick, and the final against Agassi tommorrow afternoon, he will overtake Ferrero in #2, otherwise he'll stay in #3.
Of course, the Americans won't give up easily...
They have nothing to gain as far as the year-end ranking is concerned, but entry list points are at stake in Houston as well... If Roddick wins the title he'll build a massive 156 pts lead over Ferrero and 212 pts over Federer, that should keep him at the top throughout the 1st half of 2004. Win for Agassi may enable him to stay in 4th place if he fails to defend his AO title.

Default Re: Champions race standing - updated Saturday: Federer closes on #2!

Federer is one win away from 2nd place after a convincing win over Roddick in the 2nd semifinal.
Win tommorrow will also put him in good position to overtake Roddick in #1 after the Australian Open.
According to my calculation, if Federer win the final in Houston, he'll go to Melbourne 140 entry list points (equivalent of 28 champions race points)ahead of Roddick on "safe points", after the points they won at Melbourne this year are deducted (90 race points for Roddick, 30 for Federer).
Coria will be in good position to regain 4th place in Melbourne: He will defend only 30 pts against 200 for reigning champion Agassi. Even if Agassi wins tommorrow, he'll be 101 "safe points" behind Coria when they go to Melbourne. If he doesn't, he'll be 151 safe pts behind and nothing less than succesful defence of his title will keep him in 4th place. He might even fall behind Schuettler, despite the German having to defend his 140 runner-up pts. Moya, who has only 7 pts to lose in Melbourne, will also be in good position to climb above Schuettler and Agassi.
