the way he played, everyone is going to miss him at the tmc
Well, he had 10 months to show good form and qualify for the tournament. If he continues to play the way he recently did he will be amongst the best 8 players next year for sure.

Well, at least we probably see him in 2008 (Unless he'll play like he did this year...)
I mean, he better be there next year!!!!

Funny, i heard the same complain when Gonzo didn't make it last year. But there is not shame in neither case. Shanghai is a reward to the eight players that have been the most consistent through the year, and since everybody is well aware on how the system to get the points to qualify works, there is nothing to regret. The eight ones who will get there totally deserved.

you're right.
This event is for the 8 players who had the best results this year, and Nalbandian is not one of them, I'm not saying he deservs to be there according to his results this year, but now when he finally back to himself, I'm sure many would love to see him there..

it's not a shame at all. All he had to show prior to this was one QF. A place in the masters cup is the reward of an entire season, not just one tournament.

That's a different story, and i agree with you there. Let's see what the next year brings to FIT Dave.

Couldn't have said it better. Not to mention that the Race rewards a whole year's work, and not 1 week.

I not understand. Why Nalbandian should make it to Masters Cup? :retard:

He had enough time to get the results and did not
one tournament does not get you there where others worked whole year long

I do not think ugotlobbed means Nalbandian should play in the masters cup but its shame he is not playing because he could put great performances against everyone there.

Fee what is this "word"? I looked up the online dictionary and it gave a defintion that I could not quite apply above to your post. :confused:

;)

The answer is not to be found in any dictionary, it is to be found in the song 'Word Up' by Cameo. If that doesn't help you, find Lars Graf at any ATP tournament and ask him. He should remember the way I explained it to him. If not, just say 'Word Lars' and move along.

Truthfully, it cannot be explained, it can only be felt. word.
