Andy loses in Basel

Quote

Hi  Crying or Very sad
Andy lost to Gonzalez. It's no shame, I expected it. Gonzalez is a great player. He reached the quaterfinals... I would have loved to see him win the tournament but that's not realistic.

Watching Murray eventually lose didn't make me sad after such a brilliant performance from both players. Andy pulled off some amazing shots but so did Gonz which was the problem. It was a match meant for a final and next time Murray will be fitter. That match was an absolute joy to watch.

Nods furiously in agreement.

That was a superb match. If he's like this at 18 - injuries permitting - he's going to be phenomenal in a couple of years.

Andy will get 55 ranking points for reaching the Q/Fs. Where he ends up depends on other players not defending points and so on, but this page from the ATP site explains the breakdown of points available:

 Very Happy  Thanks for that. I've searched before but could never find what points Challengers held. All is now clear.

At this time of the year his ENTRY points of 55 are useless. It's the the RACE points that are important and he will receive only 12 of those. That's why he needs to forget about Challengers, as they don't give out RACE points. Much better to try for wild cards and qualifying for the main tournaments.

No ATP events left this year that he can play.

He's finished playing this year according to today's papers and the Beeb website.

No challengers then?

Good for him probably, but not so good for us! How will we survive without an Andy match to follow till the new year? Frown
