He has no points to defend until late February, and so from here on out it should--should--only get better. In theory, we should have only good news to report here for the foreseeable future.

Next stop, top 100!
We've kinda not needed a thread like this ... so far. Now we've arrived there.
Btw JCF was never out of top 100, his lowest was like 98.

Well you know how men always like to outdo the others, I'm sure it's just so that Marat can later say that he came from outside the top 100 to the no 1 spot.

It's much more interesting than the train A leaving Boringland at 2:30 pm at the speed of X km/hr and the train B leaving Stupidland at 3pm at the speed of Y km/hr, and who the hell cares about when and where they'll meet anyway?

I was thinking that the other day, only about physics! Olivier Rochus lobs Ivo Karlovic with speed of X and angle of Y from a height of Z above the ground, if Karlovic has reach A, will he be able to deliver a smash or will he be forced to resort to a tweener from the baseline?

We got "X kicks a football; where does it land?" questions of this sort in my classes, but tennis would be so much more fun!
