Mardy Fish (8) and John Isner (13) both made the top 20 in the latest ATP Tour world rankings, week commencing February 20, but there was no place for the 2003 US Open winner Andy Roddick. Those watching live tennis will have seen injury tiddled Roddick's form and will not be surprised by this result.

Los Angeles resident Fish, winner of a sixth career ATP Tour singles title last year in Atlanta and finalist in the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Canada and in his home city, capped an impressive 2011 by scoring 33-19 on hard, 6-5 on clay, 4-1 on grass and 3-9 against his top 10 rivals.

He reached a career-best quarter-final at Wimbledon and also won 14 of 17 matches before the 2011 US Open in New York City, while ended the campaign with a 10-4 mark in Grand Slam action.

Last year was also a productive 12 months for Tampa resident Isner, who earned a career high $1,170,432 (according to the official ATP World Tour website) - his second straight $1 million campaign.

The giant American won two ATP World Tour singles titles, in Newport in July and Winston-Salem in August, but he announced himself on the big stage when reaching the quarter-finals of the US Open and semi-finals of the French Open.

He recorded a 1-6 record against top 10 rivals while compiling marks of 26-13 on hard, 6-1 on grass and 4-7 on clay.

Former world number one Roddick was installed at number 27.

The number two American captured his 30th career title on the ATP World Tour in 2011 in Memphis to increase his tally to 11 consecutive years (Roger Federer is only other active player to accomplish the same feat) but his run of nine straight top-10 finishes came to an end.

'A-Rod' cut a forlorn a frustrated figure in San Jose recently when he was sent packing by Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin 6-2 6-4 in the quarter-finals in just 76 minutes.

The 29-year-old continues his recovery from a hamstring injury which cut his short his Australian Open campaign; once he recovers there are sure to be plenty of fans looking to take advantage of tennis betting offers in his favour.
