 The 10 in top 250 looks a busted flush to me right now; bookies would declare Jaggy over and out! 

20 in the top 500 is the only show left in town - although still highly doubtful, its the horse to probably back, if any!

Alcaraz got to number one this week of course and straightaway is down to live 2 with Miami points coming off. Needs to get straight back on the horse!

Djokovic and Alcaraz both have almost exactly the same points coming off over the clay, similar records last year, and then Djokovic has the grass in his sights to maybe build a lead over the Spanish number one.

Nadal of course outside the top 10 now, although his Wimbledon semi points leave an asterisk on that, like for Cam. Cam really should be top 10 and his live 5 in the race says more about his general standing right now.

 Yes, if he'd managed to take to the court in IW and manages to do so here, he would have been entering the top 500  Though I would rather see him actually win a match somewhere quite soon.

 It's all so messy at the moment though, with Djokovic's ban issues, Alcaraz's injury absence, and no Wimbledon points last year. 

I'd say that in tennis terms Djokovic has never been usurped by Alcaraz ( or Medvedev previously ) as the real #1.

Well, there's a few rubbish shots here and there but Kyle is hitting some good ball out there - it's great to see him at least on the court

And Andy is struggling ..... lost the first set 4-6

(Don't cry, Judy ! In fact, do you think she thinks: ok, just lose the next set, Andy, I'm so DONE with three-setters)

POOR Kyle - he'd done all the hard work, scrapped back, was 30-0 up at 5-6. Got dragged to the net unwillingly and left a ball that landed miles in. And then was so cross with himself for leaving it, he sort of went to pieces.

Lost the set 7-5

I only saw the end as was watching Andy but, you could see Kyles talent but he looked very unfit.  I can't see whats to be gained by coming in at a Slam or Masters, surely he would benfit by dropping down and getting some matches under his belt regardless of the level?

To be fair, he was always a bit flat-footed, even at his peak. He ran down some excellent balls, and moves fine once he gets going, but he's not dynamic. 

But yes, I agree, I think some lower level events would be good. But I guess he's got his PRs to use - I don't know the exact rules for how long they last, how other events affects them etc.

 First two weeks in April , hes entered various European challengers like Murcia/Barletta and then Leon and others - but hes not used a PR and is some way off entry. Week of 19 April, he is into Munich ATP 250 using his PR.
