Murray's Ranking

Quote

I think that was Fed and Basel.  Nadal's supposed to have a multi-year contract with Halle.

Hadn't heard that. I suspect the Queen's/ Halle organisers are pretty realistic in their expectations of top players who sign up to play - they are well aware those same players hope to be in Paris to the end and if so, there is always going to be a possibility of a no show/ early exit. I expect they accept it is always likely to happen - and are no doubt hoping for the middle week slot come 2015 as I'd imagine that's when most top players will want to play. I agree that while it may seem weird that Nadal withdrew while still in an event  it is fair to do so before the draw so as to let someone else play

Ooh, look at that nice big gap between Andy and Smugfed. Look at that nice even bigger gap between Andy and Nadal. I won't mention the gap between Andy and Djokovic just yet Wink

Despite winning today I see Nadal is now down to world number 5. What is his likely seeding for Wimbledon? Surely not 5? I hope the clowns that made him the 3rd seed for the French are happy with the non-event that was today's final.

You could've just gone on live-tennis.eu you realise? lol

Almagro's down to 16th, Raonic will be 15th.

Yeah, to work out the top 15, you really have to go down as far as 20 or so to catch the big climbers.

It's gonna be all uphill for Nadal in the rankings from here. He'll be chasing Murray's tail.

Every match Rafa plays for the rest of the year he will be gaining points, Andy will be defending points a lot of the time ...

Andy's can gain a lot of points in the North American hard-court season (pre-US Open obv), although there are the Olympics points that can't be replaced.  Hopefully, extra points at Queens will compensate!

The points in the Olympics should last for 4 years!

Realistically I think Murray will end the season #3. He's just lost too much ground on Rafa in the clay season to catch up. Djokovic will still end the year comfortably #1 though.

It is unfair that the points will drop off this year.  It would be better if 1/4 of them dropped off  each year for the next 4 years.

Yep exactly that, i don't see how Nadal skipping an event next week he was signed for can be justified if he's still playing in the final Sunday it makes no sense to me that the ATP can allow this sort of thing, even if it was accepting a fine, that is hardly fair to spectators and event organisers who probably sold tickets on the back of his appearance.

If a player is ill or injured that is understandable, but he obviously is neither if he still has a grand slam final to play.
Yes but he's withdrawn from Halle on 'medical advice', so that'll probably let him off the hook.  Nadal is just so cute at doing these things. Rolling Eyes

I agree, particularly as these hard-earned points can't be defended.  Seems very unfair to me.
