I think that last week he dropped 90 for Madrid, but then his Barcelona points (90) got added which had been in his non-countables the week before! Those points may go back to non-countable next week when his Rome points are counted, but it's all quite confusing.

It was 360 points for SF in Rome last year.

If you look at last week's points for each player, add their Madrid points for 2012, then take away 2011 Rome points, it should all work out!

I see this but none of the points make sense even if you take the Rome points having dropped off.  I have checked all the top 4 and am confused.  I have taken last weeks ranking points against this weeks and they do not make sense.

If that was the case surely he would have lost 180 from Madrid last week but it did not show up it just looks like they have taken off 360 points (3rd roudn Madrid last year) instead of 180. In fact I thought the 3rd round was only 90 and he definitely did not make it further than this last year. 
It was said that Rome points had dropped off, so I think Elena is correct.

Couldsomeone explain why Andy has lost 360 points instead of 180 at Madrid. Federer does seem to be getting his 'second wind'

That will be last year's Rome points dropping off today.

Let's hope he's match fit for Rome.  Regardless of what folk think of Federer, he's proving that he's still very much a force to be reckoned with.

Well Lendl is other side of Atlantic at present sg.  I don't think they're meeting up again until week before RG.  Of course I'm sure they're communicating nevertheless.

It is all about the summer for Andy, no chances will be taken.  He will say all the right things and do his best at Rome and RG, but we all know the only thing on his mind is those two trips to Wimbledon.  Nadal shows no signs of being able to reach the level of last year and you feel a massive dip in points is looming.  Fed and Nole can both be beaten by Andy on grass, I have no doubts about that.  Very excited about the summer, just want him to come through the clay in one piece, the rest will take care of itself.

He did well in Rome last year, it is a favourite venue of his, so I am expecting good things.  Let's see what he and Ivan have been up to in the rest/recuperation week - aside from Lego and so on!

Hehe..that's spooky sharing the same names and star sign like that! Thanks everyone for your kind words, it's a joyous time for us, he really is an amazing wee boy. Without getting too 'deep' about it, it's something we had been told probably would never happen for us which makes it extra special. Hopefully wee Paul will be a mascot for numerous Andy successes and that 2012 will be the year that all our dreams come true. I'd like to be able to say to him one day that he was born in the year that Britain produced it's first slam winner in seventy-odd years!

My grandma was told she'd never have any more than the one (my mother).  I'm happy to report that my mum has 2 brothers and 3 sisters Very Happy

Haven't been on MW for a while. Saw a lot of questions about the reason of pulling out. Bit worried about it! What kind of injury is it? An old one? When started? During or before the Raonic match? The tweets from Andy are about Lego (?!) and football or so, so that doesn''t help....

Many congrats to you and your wife on the birth of Paul Andrew - may he enjoy tennis more than my own Paul Andrew! And a Taurean to boot - such a good star sign (and so obviously a biased opinion Whistle )

Congratulations, mcenroe. Lovely picture. I realise that I'm the first male on MW to add my greetings.

We guys who did some of the hard work have to stick together. Enjoy your baby son, he will grow up very quickly.

PS Thanks to everyone who posted their best wishes recently when I mentioned I was about to experience parenthood for the first time, I'm happy to report that my wife Karen and I now have an amazing wee baby boy, Paul Andrew Sturgeon who weighed in at a nice 6 lbs 8oz. Both baby and his heroic mum are now out of hospital and at home, I look forward to introducing Paul to the delights of following and cheering on Andy in the next few years!
Congratulations from me as well.  What a wee smasher Paul Andrew is.  Glad that both he and his mother are doing well and hope the father is making a good recovery!!  Bless you all. hug

yes, it was the beginning of the second set. as I mentioned before i think he felt he had to increase his power on his serve, this could have been the problem./ he will recover and bounce back, Also have talks with his team which is so important. again it is the mental side of things. he has the game. but have the confidence.

Too bad about no Andy in Madrid, but they say things happen for the best, so ....  I'm sure it will be for the best in the long run. Take care, Andy!~
