Haha. Roddick getting another whipping. Yet some actually think he can make top 4 over Djokovic or Murray? Lmao. I predicted Djokovic would do better in Miami. :D

Andy is finding out that he can't come to net on Roger and win over 80% of those points. he is winning only about 30% of those points and that spells Loser every time.

Roddick won 50% of his points at the net today, he had some success approaching onto Feds BH as well...just for some reason he approached on Feds FH a lot too xD

[this was just about the only image of roddick shown by the atp cameras for the last 4-5 games, including andy's last 3 service games! and as the unprofessional jerk robbie koenig said, "He sent him packing."]

And that over rated, weak, no good, Del Portro, who will not present a challenge to the top 4, as someone posted, moves into #5 as Rohdick slides down to #6, just above Simon.

#5 in the world? What a joke man. Kolja mustve slid down the rankings a fair bit, pity to see.

:D ... :lol:

..... LT, maybe you (unlike others with the same criticism as yours) can explain how a player is "over rated," to use your term, when he is ranked with the same points on the same ranking system as all the other 100+ (?), 200+ (?) players in the ATP?????

(not to mention the fact that Delpo came into Miami at World No. 7 and will probably leave miami at an even higher rating, based on his very own work production compared with that of all the others)


 
No, actually, Roddick just stays exactly where he is at #6.
Maybe I am missing something but, going into Miami, Roddick had 4610 points and he was defending 450. He only got 180, so he lost 270 points. 4610 - 270 = 4340. Del Potro had 4470 going in. He had only 40 points to defend and has already earned 180. So, 4470 + 140 = 4610. So Roddick slides into 6th place, but remains 300 points ahead of Simon.

Leublu, Roddick is in sixth right now and Del Potro in seventh. Davy, however, is in fifth. He will lose a 1000 points because he was the winner last year. That will drop him down all the way to number nine. So Del Potro will move from seven to five, while Roddick will stay at six. I hope that helps.

I was being facetious, Love. Every time I see a post that some player is "overrated", I tend to point out that the player is rated impartially. The poster just wants that player to be at a lower rank than where that player happens to be.

Davydenko was often accused of playing more tournaments than others, as an explanation as to why he was rated that high. Pure nonsence. Each player gets to count exactly the same number of tournaments to determine the ranking. If some player plays more tournaments, then that player gets a record of tournaments that don't count for the ranking. A simple story and I don't know why its so hard to understand.
 
Leublu, Roddick is in sixth right now and Del Potro in seventh. Davy, however, is in fifth. He will lose a 1000 points because he was the winner last year. That will drop him down all the way to number nine. So Del Potro will move from seven to five, while Roddick will stay at six. I hope that helps.
My bad. I moved Davydenko as soon as he dropped out. Which moved Roddick into #5, temporatily. O.K. Now its clear. Sorry about that, folks.

Roddick was already in sixth place going into Miami. He's in sixth right now. When the next rankings come out, Davydenko will have dropped beneath him, while Del Potro will have leap-frogged him. He doesn't "slide" into sixth place; he just stays there.

if ur in NY, we just got screwed by MSGplus, they stopped showing the freaking match and switched to NHL hockey, who the hell cares about the ISLANDERs, they suck! thank god for online streaming.
 
Great congrats to Del Potro, but really comparatively, no1 losing and the current no2, this really is like a fluke somehow. Or an extremely great day for Del Potro but a bad day for Nadal, because Del Potro overall just does not have the consistent game to beat a Nadal like some others have over Federerer.

Hopefully, however, this will give Del Potro a HUGE boost in confidence because he had been really, really lacking in performance against top 10 players.

they aren't on court yet I guess?

live scoreboard still shows the dp/rafa result, I thought they usually reset to the new match once players are out but not sure
