The bye has been disappointing I must admit. Expected better honestly.

in addition to the above mentioned:

John Isner - probably biggest improvement in ranking this year, from >800 to almost top100

Donald Young - no longer the typical ATP-tour loser, finally won matches and entered the top100

Guillermo Canas - won one title and is back to where he was before his doping ban, well almost

and some more: Igor Andreev, Carlos Moya, Juan Monaco

I have to disagree his backhand was always very solid and dangerous. I think his forehand improved immensely and his net game has improved.

On the other hand David Ferrer improved all parts of his game specifically confidence which was the most important ingredient lacking in his game hence the improved results and spectacular season.

I totally forgot Ivo, he can actually now rally from the back court, for a few games he was actually hanging in with Roger (not at his best) nevertheless, his ground game improved tremendously. A couple of years ago well 2 or so ago he wouldn't be able to last in rallys longer than 8 strokes, and even then that was stretching it. ;)

Ivo is even hitting the odd forehand for winner and breaking serve more often than before.

sampras

only the GOAT can go from defeat to victory in the span of two matches against the current #1.

That is improvement, my friends.

Karlovic- Not only that he improved his game, but also he made a huge jump in the rankings, to remind you in April he wasn't even the top100 player, and got to #22 in 6 months
