Nalbandian? A fluke?

Right - it's not like he's 21, is still growing as a player, has had several good wins, won a couple titles last year on different surfaces, and shown promise other wise -

Oh wait a second I AM talking about David!

Are you sure that you don't work for ESPN?

Scott - you aren't being objective, and I'm pointing out your flaw.

Andre doesn't even play ALL the required events.

IF he passes Hewitt for nunmber one, it will be because his slam results were better, and he's won more masters series events in the past year.

Wether or not Hewitt plays more will have no bearing on it...

Regardless, there is not certainty that he WILL take it over.

Of course, if by the years end they played 12 vs 16 it is a factor.

I'm not talking about the years end.

I'm talking about in two or three months when Andre has a serious chance of taking this over. At which point Hewitt will NOT have just 12 events on his record.

Scott- can you not just talk about the issue at hand?

You seem totally unable to differentiate between me attacking your OPINION and attacking YOU.

Quit being so defensive. They are totally separate entities.

No, you clearly can't.

Two months from now if Andre becomes number one, the difference in the number of tournaments that they play will NOT be significant, unless Hewitt just doesn't play the early hardcourt season.

On the rankings prior to the tournament Agassi had 19 tournaments, Hewitt 21. Now it would be 20 vs 21.

The number of tournaments will have NOTHING to do with what happens to the ranking in the immediate future (provided exceptional cases do not occur), which blows:

Hewitt will lose the #1 for not playing as much.
RIGHT out of the water.
