Bloody back injury ruining Andy's consistency.

Can't we just be pleased he managed to end the year in top 4 and not get fixated on minutiae of the rankings, given the back injury? - Oh and good to see you now accept there was a genuine back injury rob as I seem to remember you were one of the sceptics earlier in the year who dismissed some of us as seeking excuses when he was performing below par?  Whistle

AGREE.  He was at nearly 85% for win loss this year when other than Novak and Rafa most of the top twelve were around 70%  (Delpo 77.3 next best). Win loss percentage is a perhaps a better reflection of who is the best when a lot of the season is missed?  I am pleased with a Wimbledon win and to have seen him play some great tennis this year (if only on the box).

I think it's amazing he missed so much and still ended up top 4, and so close to top 3. cmon yeah

We need to remember that Delpo also missed the French Open and some other events too, though not at much as Andy.  Meanwhile, Ferrer played everything going and reached his first ever slam final.  Personally, I blame Nadal for not putting the effort in at Bercy!  Think

Oh dear - told off again for discussing ranking on the rankings thread!

I'm thrilled Andy is still at no 4 despite the back injury and missed tournaments. Will say no more...

Well hopefully next year he will have better results. No bombing out early in masters.

He didn't really bomb out 'early'. The only one I recall him bombing out early in is Monte Carlo.

Thanks benniebone - I don't think there is much more to say about Andy's ranking at the moment though! "Mad statistician" Steven@GBtennis says Andy is "already certain to be a top 4 seed at the Aus Open if he plays".

After that anything could happen.

Marathonarthur's question about Berdych and Davis Cup is a tricky one. I think he may actually have points to defend after winning last year, and he may have to win 2 matches to overtake Fed. But DC ranking points are very complicated and I'm just going to wait and see.

Wasn't sure where to put this or if it had already been mentioned.  Andy seems to be third in the amout of tournies won this year

Nadal  =  10
Nole   =     6 (7 now with WTF)
Andy  =     4

This seems pretty good since he has missed quite a bit of the season with the op and the pain beforehand and also to be No 4 at the end of the year. Just 10 points behing Ferrer who has played twice as many tournaments.

Del Potro also won four tournaments this year, though his were all 500 level events compared with Andy's 1 x slam, 1 x Masters, and 2 x 250s.

It is impressive though that Andy was able to win this number of tournaments despite missing a good portion of the season. He'd have probably added Bangkok and Tokyo titles had he been fit, and maybe Shanghai too.

No Elena.  My point is that we should be celebrating the fact that Andy ends the year in the top 4 despite missing two chunks of the season because of injury rather than wringing our hands over the fact he could have been in top 3 had he done slightly better (or played tournaments when he was injured).  Indeed the very point you then make.
And rob - words fail me that you still don't seem to be willing to concede that Andy's back was a contributory factor in those early exits.
