Murray the Goliath defeats David

Quote

Me too. I just have a feeling that it may not be wonderful. Rolling Eyes I also think that Andy may well play at Valencia before Paris, so that he gets used to conditions of playing indoors before Paris which he would like to win. Anyone see the photo of Andy, on his facebook page, after a routine blood test and  and his sticker given because he had been brave!! hug
Nobody gives me a bravery sticker every time I have a routine blood test ... Frown   Seriously, though, I haven't seen this photo because I'm not a member of FB.  Is there any way you can post it on MW?

One player who will almost certainly not be playing at the WTF is Soderling who's still suffering from the wretched mononucleosis virus, bcause he's just announced his withdrawal from Paris.  Andy's chances seem to be getting better and better, BUT again, one tournament - nay, one match, one set, one game - at a time please everyone!

I am not slating anyone especially not Federer- he has given his all to the game but now must accept that he will not be able to keep pace with the younger guard.  Rafa, Djoko and Andy are the ones that I think will be at the top next year my point was aimed at the press and their reluctance to acknowledge the achievement of a hat trick of tourny wins.  It was a great achievement but one that was downed by a lot of the press as Fed and Djoko were not there and Rafa appeared to be not playing to his full fitness etc.  There is no way that I was knocking Rafa he never mentioned illness / injury he took his defeats in a sporting manner.  Pity the press could not be a bit more sporting and give Andy some credit - that was the point I was trying to make.
Sorry, Murray Magic, I didnt mean to suggest that you personally were knocking him. I was making general comments as I was angry that some people won't give Andy credit when its due. Hope thats cleared up now. :-)

Where are you getting this from?  The website still has Andy in 4th place, yet Soderling has been removed despite only announcing his withdrawal yesterday, but maybe they're waiting until the ranking figures on 31 October are released.

I know that - but my point was that they were very quick to remove Soderling yet haven't  swapped Andy and Federer around, which made me assume they were just being cautious and not jumping the gun here, i.e. only updating the website after next week's tournaments have taken place.

Andy's guaranteed to be number 3 seed in Paris - Fed can't gain any points in Basel as he's defending champion and will lose 250 points on Monday when his Stockholm points are taken off. So even if Andy doesn't play Valencia he'll still be number 3 Smile

Perhaps they don't update the entry list seedings until the draw is made? It's a shame about Soderling not being able to take part in Paris, especially as he's the defending champion. I hope his mono doesn't end up being another Ancic case.
