Who’s got the funk…
1. Novak DJOKOVIC
No. 2 in the world behind Rafa, and has led Serbia into the Davis Cup final — pretty good resume.
2. Guillermo GARCIA-LOPEZ
G-Lo beats world No. 1 Rafa in the Bangkok semis then takes the title. Niiiice.
3. Mikhail YOUZHNY
Wins Kuala Lumpur, outlasting four opponents in three sets. Russian Iron Man award.
4. John MCENROE
51 years old and kicking ass, beating Ivan Lendl and Guy Forget for the seniors Paris title. Can Pete and Andre make some senior tour appearances and put this guy in his place?
5. Thomas MUSTER
42 years old and playing the Challenger tour — and sucking. But we like the effort.
…Who’s in the trunk
5. Robby GINEPRI, New Haven, TENNIS magazine
Three way tie for the guy who broke his arm biking while trying to avoid a squirrel, the tour event that is about to disappear, and the magazine that no one reads that is circling the drain.
4. Juan Martin DEL POTRO
Comebacks are not easy — ask Muster.
3. Caroline WOZNIACKI
We’re waiting until the year-end championships when you play a Williams sister. Then the rubber will meet the road.
2. China Open
Looked like you bought a good event — until three of your Top 5 players dropped out. Injury problem on the WTA Tour? No!
1. Roger FEDERER
Just about everyone is playing this week in Asia — except Fed who has time to sit around and ponder letting Switzerland drop out of the Davis Cup World Group.
