Murray returns in Montreal

Quote

Thanks LL.  Have you done this spreadsheet yourself? Amazing if you have.
I see the Sod is down to 6.  But it really underlines how many ranking points Andy has to defend over next month or so compared to those behind him.  But on the positive side, overtaking the Fed is clearly do-able.

Yep Ruthie ---- it's amazing what you can do on a rather dull August day  Whistle

Don't know the reason for Soderling and Ferrer not playing but as they only have 90 & 10 points respectively to defend for Canada maybe it's not too surprising. Andy must really try to defend as many points as possible this week if he is going to push Fedup down to No.4 over the next few weeks. There is less than 2000 points between them but..... it will still be quite a task and actually impossible if Rog gets to the serious rounds in the next 3 tournies.

Some journalists are talking "Big 3" not "Big 4" Oh wouldn't it be lovely, if Andy overtook Fed in the rankings and made them eat their words  Fingers crossed
I have also noticed that the journalists talk about the top three and leave Andy out....so stupid.  Yes, I too hope that Federer goes out early and Andy gets to the finals and wins...  C'mon Andy you can do it. clap

Who are these dastardly journalists? Put them to the sword, I say!

How about the stocks Andy could use them for serving practice !

What a good idea, perhaps we should see if this could be arranged, I would also like to add some of the commentators,and I vote Barry Cowan be the first one in the stocks.

Afraid my list would be a long one, with Gowan at the top followed by Rusedski then Lloyd and Castle.............I could go on.

Stocks???  Meaning the lousy Market down 503 points in the US.  They're not worth much, may as well hit them around.

Where offenders of all sorts were put, clamped in wooden stocks & the passing folk would throw rotton fruit etc at them if they felt like it in Merry Olde England.

Soderling is apparently suffering from a wrist injury and Ferrer suffered a hand injury (not thought to be serious) while training.

Glad dull August days have their uses LL!  Abit confused though as on Sky they said Soderling was still at no 5 and Ferrer at 6.  Perhaps I misread your chart and I've not gone back to the original.
Yes you're right I was perhaps a bit optimistic about Andy's chances of unseating Fed in immediate future, but even if he doesn't I hope Fed feels him breathing down his neck.

My charts show the positions of the players after the total points they have to defend for Montreal, Cincinnati and US open are all deducted. It makes it easier to see the real picture (for me anyway) as the ATP deduct the points on different dates and normally after the tournaments are completed.

In other words the players are back to an even standing all go into this/these tournaments. So any points gained are in "Real Time".

Hope this helps.  Think
