Ferrer and Gasquet have already played 8 tournaments. wow. Andy has played the least - only 4 so far. Federer has yet to win a title this year. Has Nadal played 5 tournaments? I was under the impression he's played 4 and won 3.
Oddly the ATP have him and Federer having played six:http://www.atpworldtour.com/Rankings/YTD-Singles.aspx
For some reason Miami is included for both. I guess it's tournament's counted in their ranking, so as Miami and Australian Open (Rafa) are mandatory they are included even though they didn't play.
Here's the actual 'race' ranking from ATP website as tmh wasn't sure he'd added Miami on correctly. Looks SO good. Really underlines how well Andy has started the year despite playing the fewest tournaments of all the top players
Djokovic, Novak (SRB) 2,990 0 5
2 Murray, Andy (GBR) 2,630 2 4
3 Ferrer, David (ESP) 2,370 0 8
4 Nadal, Rafael (ESP) 1,900 -2 6
5 Berdych, Tomas (CZE) 1,550 1 7
6 Del Potro, Juan Martin (ARG) 1,425 -1 7
7 Gasquet, Richard (FRA) 1,215 1 8
8 Federer, Roger (SUI) 1,170 -1 6
9 Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried (FRA) 920 0 7
10 Nishikori, Kei (JPN) 905 0 7
Delighted to see that the points all match up.
Nishikori's had a decent start to the season. Right up there thanks to those 500 points from Memphis.
