Re: New to the top 100 - 2017 [10] - Djere enters

Sebastian Ofner in the running this week to break through to the Top 100 for the first time. Currently #127 on live rankings (438 points), he can break through to the Top 100 with a win (598 points), if he wins the title (I think all the others that could overtake him, if he wins cannot push him down outside the Top 100).

There are also two outside chances this week, but it would be really a miracle if someone gets it:

Vincent Millot (would have to win Los Cabos)
Tommy Paul (would have to win Washington)

very unlikely, but them and Ofner are the ony chances left this week for a new Top100 entry.

Also Bhambri if he reaches the final in Washington

Bhambri has been to Top100 before.

Anyway, Millot lost - Paul and Ofner still in play.

Shapovalov at 100 now in the live rankings after his wins against Del Potro and Nadal. Only two players could still pass him: Sandgren needs to beat Fritz, while Stakhovsky needs to win Portoroz. Obviously, Shapovalov could make everything clear by beating Mannarino in the QF.

Shapovalov is the 11th new top 100 player of this season

I can't believe it...Shapovalov ACTUALLY breaks in the Top 100 this week (although it seemed to be not needed as Sandgren lost his match, although Stakhovsky still could get back to the Top 100 win another win)! What would be incredible though, is if he bypasses that and winning the match and breaking to the Top 50. What was the last time again someone jumped from outside the Top 100 to inside the Top 50? I hope Shapovalov gets a USO WC -- it is going to be awkward if he doesn't.

The only players to do it were Gustafsson in 1987, Jelen in 1986, Dyke in 1986, Shiras in 1984, Purcell in 1980

Casper Ruud is the only one with a real chance this week to join Top100.

He will be sure if wins Santo Domingo CH, he can also lose in final but then he must count other players' results.

You can help yourselves to this filter to navigate and see new Top 100ers for each week:

The new new-CH filter

Just use the two small upper narrows to navigate the weeks, or jump if you want to skip.

:wink2:

Out of the blue - Pedro Sousa can get to the Top100 this week.

Almost 30 years old, entire carrer in futures and challengers and great last two seasons on clay with 114-29 combined record !!!!!

He needs two wins basically and he's playing Grieekspoor then winner of Sakharov / Krawietz and then - if it's not enough - Westerhof / Cagnina / Jahn / Robredo.

With this USOpenNadalesque kind of draw - I think he will make it this week, even despite playing day in and day out since two weeks.

I hope he makes it. But he wasted a golden opportunity against Griekspoor.

Bublik at 100 now, but needs one additional win (against Istomin) to be safe.
