Andy Roddick could drop to #5 in the ATP race behind Nikolay Davydenko after Cincinnati, depending how Davydenko does tonight and possibly in upcoming matches in this event. Despite all the events Davydenko plays, Roddick is actually counting about 80 more points in his "best other 5 remaining tournaments" category then Davydenko. Davydenko stands to gain more points in that category at the end of the year, and Roddick would have to compensate by outperforming in the Slams and Masters events, which wont be easy given the seedings of both, and Davydenko also doing well on these surfaces often. He is currently #4, about 250 points behind Djokovic after this event. He seemingly has almost no chance of catching him. His main fight seems to be with Davydenko for the #4, but you also have Gonzalez who excels in the fall season just over 100 points back, and Ljubicic another very good fall indoor player a bit more back of Gonzalez. So where will Roddick end the year ranked? Will he by some miracle attain year end #3, will he be year end #4 over Davydenko and his other challengers, year end #5, or even year end #6 or #7, or worse? My guess is year end #5, which would actually be 1 spot better then last year, but I think he is more likely to be 6 or 7 then 4 all the same. I am picking #5, but 6 or 7 would not surprise me much.
