Re: Andre's Ranking in ATP 2005 Race

I would love to see Andre crack the top 5 in the Entry Rankings this year. (Just because for some reason we put importance on top 5 as opposed to top 6... ;) ) He was in the top five way back in 1988, and it's remarkable that he is knocking at that door again, even after a disastrous RG and skipping Wimbledon.

I wonder if he can catch anyone in the Top 5 before year's end...

Re: Andre's Ranking in ATP 2005 Race

I think Andre will be targeting Lleyton Hewitt before the year is out. They are both scheduled to play Madrid next week. Then Andre takes a week off while Hewitt has accepted a wildcard into St. Petersburg. They both take to the indoor courts of Paris before Shanghai a week later. Hewitt is consistent, but hasn't been startling lately, retiring injured in the QF in Bangkok. If Andre goes deep in Madrid and Paris I think he's got Hewitt. Roddick is too far in front. Andre would have to win a Masters Tournament and get SF or F in the other to beat Roddick to the finish for Number 3. Is it possible? Let's Tune In!

Re: Andre's Ranking in ATP 2005 Race

Safin will lose a lot of entry ranking points by not playing at the TMC this year, which would put Andre in 5th place in the entry rankings at the end of the year (IF no one behind Andre catches up to him ;) )

He is currently No. 5 in the Race and No. 6 in the Entry Rankings.

Good luck, Andre :tennis:

Re: Andre's Ranking in ATP 2005 Race

Related topic from the mailbag this week:

Does anyone else find it just a little remarkable that Agassi, after effectively missing two of the four Grand Slams (and a big chunk of the year), is still managing to finish at a No. 6 ranking? -- Lilas Pratt, Marietta, Ga.

Yeah, and it's not like Agassi was gangbusters at the other Majors before the U.S. Open. I think his ranking is, at some level, testament to just how thoroughly Federer and Nadal have dominated. By taking three Majors and eight Masters Series events, they've absolutely hoarded points and thus a player who does well in spots can still be a top 10er. Also, Agassi got an assist from Marat Safin, who crashed and burned after Melbourne, and from Willie Canas, who got dinged for drogas.

All of that said, no one gifted Agassi his points. He won them and only a small handful of players won more. He put a great deal of thought into his schedule, he made some adjustments along the way and, in a year in which he reached the eligibility age for the seniors tour, was still a top player. So tip your cap to him. And, if you're the Shanghai promoter, hope to heck he shows up!

Re: Andre's Ranking in ATP 2005 Race

Honorary ranking?
Agassi's No. 6 spot has some scratching their heads

Posted: Wednesday November 2, 2005 11:25AM; Updated: Wednesday November 2, 2005 11:25AM



Injuries limited Andre Agassi to only two Grand Slams in 2005.
Chuck Solomon/SI


• Belarusian teenager Viktoria Azarenka, the world's No. 1-ranked junior by the International Tennis Federation, will join Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, Blake and the world No. 1 doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan, for Tamarack Resort's Rock-n-Racquets at Taco Bell Arena at Boise State University on Saturday, Dec. 3.

• Our pal Phil Smith, who does a great job at the Cincinnati event, reports that regardless of what happens in Paris, this year is guaranteed to have the fewest number of unique AMS winners. The fewest before this year was 1995 when only four players (Sampras, Agassi, Thomas Muster and Andrei Medvedev) won the nine titles.

Re: Andre's Ranking in ATP 2005 Race

Well, Andre is now No. 5 in the race AND the entry rankings. :worship: Safin's injury had a lot to do with it.. but still, impressive! :)

Andre first reached the Top 5 (no. 3, to be precise) 17 years ago :eek: , in 1988.
