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
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.
