According to ATP, he qualified with Delpo's loss as the sixth qualifier, but http://live-tennis.eu/race
says that he is number eight in the race and only the first five have qualified. Somebody please explain.:confused:

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the ATP knows it's business, while the non-official, indie website has made an error. :p

It appears that the ATP have someone working for them who is very efficient

Del Potro and Tipsarevic can both overtake Berdych

BUT only if they BOTh win Paris which obviously cant happen

IF Del Potro had won today he could have overtaken Berdych with a losing Final place
But I think if Del Potro wins, Berdych loses his first match, Tsonga and Fish win a match, then Berdych is 9th.

I also think he isn't through yet, that's what I posted in the pinned Race-thread:

But if Fish and Tsonga reach R3 (= win their first match), Almagro plays the final and Tipsarevic wins the whole thing, then Berdych wouldn't qualify would he?
And btw this scenario is possible because Almagro and Tipsy are on different halves.

You don't even need both Almagro and Tipsarevic to make the final. You need three players to pass Berdych. Tsonga and Fish accomplish that with one win and the third player needs to win. That would land Berdych in 9th.

If that happened with Berdych losing his first match Berdych would be 10th. I think he can be 9th if Tsonga, Fish and only one player more overtakes him.

Oh yeah, you're completely right.
But usually the ATP will get lucky and this won't be the case (well, it's very unlikely to happen)... I certainly would look forward to seeing what they would do if Berdych didn't qualify in the end :haha:

We wrote that simultanously.

Hmmm, that would be funny, but I really dont want to see Tomas failing to qualify.
