After Shangahi, though, how many ranking points does Delpo have to defend before the end of the season? Whilst I'd be delighted if he did win, and he did beat Djoko in IW, I wouldn't like to see Andy pushed down to No.5 by the end of the year because he might struggle a bit anyway at the beginning of next until he gets back to full match fitness.
Sorry to learn though that J&J lost, although they've been having a good run recently. Does that mean that there's no chance at all of them getting to the WTF?
Delpo has got loads of points to defend before the end of the year: Vienna 250 (not playing this year), Basel 500, Paris 90, WTF 400.
Andy will lose 490 from Paris + WTF and I think his 15 DC points won't be counted as he hasn't played enough 500s this year.
Best thing at this stage is to look at race rankings. http://live-tennis.eu/race
updates after every match. Andy's points won't change, so it's just a question of how many others can gain. I think it's possible that Andy could get pushed into 5th, but it would require both Ferrer and Delpo to do very well in the next few weeks.
It is still possible for Jamie & John to get to WTF, but it depends on them doing well, and at least one of the teams in 7th/8th place (and probably others too) doing badly in the next three weeks. More in the Jamie thread
