Stan goes out with a double fault, Roger-Vasselin wins 6-4 6-3. So Stan back in 8th place in the race, behind Fed

Niemenen and Tursenov just beat Granollers and Lopez - hopefully that should help Jamie and John's cause.

I think Marc and Marcel have already qualified.

I was hoping that Niemenen & Tursenov might be an easier prospect than Granollers and Lopez.

Stan was never going to maintain the high level he reached at USO - not consistently good enough.  Plus, I think he and JWT are getting ready for a real go at Paris.  Djoker and Rafa won't be interested.

For someone who only got into tennis because of Andy, you've certainly got to know your stuff. Very impressive.

I've definitely got Andy to thank for getting me so interested in tennis. Smile

I'm disappointed Stan lost. Hope this isn't going to hurt his chances of qualifying for London. I'd love someone different to qualify this year (especially Stan as he's never qualified before), and he's had such a good year up to this point. This time last year he was 17 in the world - he's improved so much this season.

I see Simon lost 6-1, 6-0 to Falla - really wasn't expecting that scoreline (and result) but Simon has been struggling with injury recently.

I wondered if Simon was injured when I saw that score line.  Sorry to see that Stan lost - maybe he has his eyes fixed on Paris.

He's normally such a big fighter that I think he must be injured still - shame.

I'm worried about Paris for Stan as he's not the best indoor player - there's a real chance that Gasquet and Tsonga could overtake him. Wish he'd played last week like Gasquet did and got some extra points. Hope he gets a kind draw in Paris.

Simon winning just one game, Berlocq retiring after two, Tipsy after three yesterday - should these people have played?

Being a bit of a rankings nerd (and someone with tickets for WTF, so interested to know who'll be there) - Stan did have to win three matches to start gaining points in the race, so maybe he wasn't too bothered about an early exit. Any points gained next week will count. Same for Gasquet and Berdy, though more incentive for Berdy to do well this week, as he could secure his WTF place if he reaches the final (I think!)

Here's another table giving race calculations - players count 4 slams, 8 masters, and 6 best of the rest -and this table shows what their current 6 best are. Points this week only count once they are higher than those in the far right column. It also gives number of tournaments actually played as discussed the other day - correctly showing Andy at only 13

Berdych out in R1 of Basel. He is not doing a lot to end his title less year is he? Are they back to playing the "how quickly can I lose game?"

He took his time - out 6-4 6-7 6-7 v Karlovic at 10.30pm in an almost empty stadium.

Berdy really is rubbish at the moment - not helped by having such a one dimensional game.

Paris is going to be really interesting.  Whoever goes deep out of Gasquet, Stan, JWT, & Federer will have a really good chance of being at the O2.  Problem is.....go deep in Paris and you'll be knackered for the WTF i.e. WTF starts day after Paris Final hahaha

Thanks for the info Elena - good to know that Stan still has a chance. The wikipedia website is really useful - it's good to be able to compare players' scores directly instead of looking them up one-by-one on the ATP website.

Thanks Katie - all I do is share stuff I've learnt on the internet - and lots of that , like the wiki page, is thanks to Steven @GBtennis.

Edit - I see that the wiki page now has Berdy down as qualified for WTF - which seems reasonable. Top 9 qualify (except Andy )so can't see Berdy would get pushed into 10th place.

Edit again - maybe I was imagining things? Berdych not down as qualified now...
