Totally undeserved but that's the ranking system
Andy has an absolutely abysmal
6-4 win/loss ratio of matches played this year (excluding Hopman Cup) and has 450 points to defend for the clay court season whereas Soderling has 1300, having reached the final of RG and Ferrer 1410. So, even if Andy were to continue with his poor run of form his No.4 place looks relatively secure before the grass court season starts.
Problem is that the top 3 are moving further and further ahead of him in the points race - and it is quite obvious that Andy is no longer mixing it up with the BEST!
However, all we and he can do is wait to see what difference a new coach can make and how the CC season pans out
