He should be playing tennis rather than getting hair restoration procedures.

Good point, confusion at the ATP site:

Hm, is he 6th or 7th?

The rankings on the ATP homepage are the "race" rankings which only count the points accumulated in 2009. Roddick is 6th in the race and is now the 6th to have qualified for the YEC/WTF

In the actual rolling 52 week rankings, Roddick is 7th because Davydenko still has points from his appearance in the YEC final last year.

The ATP got rid of the ATP race because apparently it caused confusion about which is the rankings and which is the race. It seems like it has gotten even more confusing after they got rid of the race because now they don't have any other way of showing where players stand on qualifying for the YEC.

right now in rankings roddick is 7th but he is really 6th if u just include 2009. Because he didnt play at all last year at the YEC he got zero points for that which is the biggest reason why he is 7th in world rank right now. if davydenko and roddick both gain the same amount of points from now on in every tourney then roddick will be much higher than davydenko and be 6th overall.
