Roddick has had great results, and a lot of the guys ahead of him in the rankings haven't played nearly as well. Del Potro: I don't believe he's played a tournament sense the Australian open. That's not his fault, but how has he not lost any ground in the rankings? Davydenko: has Missed quite a few tournaments. Soderlng: He didn't do so hot in Wimbledon or the US and got out very early at the Australian. Yes, he made the FO finals, but roddick made the Wimbledon finals. Also, Roddick had a much better year leading up to his final than did Soderling. Roddick: made the finals of wimbledon last year, made the finals of IW and won Miami. Why is he still only 8 in the world ?
