By the way, don't get excited because Andy's ranking is shown as world No.4, despite the player list being updated on 19 Sept.  The rankings are based on those of 20 August.

Hey, no fair!!!

I like it this way. It helps to protect for a few weeks the ranking of people who has been having a bad patch or coming back from injury. For Andy who is rising, everyone knows Andy is the Olympic and USO champion and Andy is still the number 1 seed in this tournament so no impact on the draw this time around.

I've just looked at Shanghai and if it's to be believed Fed and Nadal are also playing as well as Andy and Djoko (the player list will be updated near the time), but it too makes Andy No.4, so maybe we won't see a change until Basel.  Meanwhile Philip's explanation seems reasonable enough to me.

Shanghai are probably living in hope that Fed and Nadal will still turn up. lol  Seriously though, it's always the same with tournaments because players declare their intention to play months before the actual date, and the player list is based on that.  Changes to the list are left until much nearer the time so's that even late withdrawals can be taken into account.

I would be very surprised if either turn up, Nadal because of his knees and Federer won't want a drumming from Andy as he had in the Olympics and in 2010 in this tournament. He will wait for the faster courts.

Of course they won't turn up.  Fed's already said he's giving the Asian swing a miss because he wants a rest, and Nadal has intimated he'll probably be out for the rest of the season.  Also they have Delpo playing, but there's a doubt over his fitness now.  I'd love to see Andy winning it for the 3rd year running.  But, hey - we aren't there yet.  One tournament at a time ...

Because I neither want nor can afford Sky, I once subscribed to Eurosport Player but it didn't last long for that very reason.  The annual sub for tennistv.com, the official ATP livestream which streams from ESPN, may seem a little steep (£65 this year and probably more next) but really is excellent value for money, and a heck of a sight cheaper than Sky.  Also you can get catch-up videos if you miss matches.  They don't stream Slams or Davis Cup though because these aren't ATP events.
