When I started to put next year’s tournaments into the database, I decided to tweak a few things in the calendar and results display – partly because I’m getting nowhere with allowing WordPress to let me overwrite url parameters so that I can let you guys see the next year’s calendar. Anyone got any ideas?
On the calendar, the “result” indicator is not a link that will take you to that tournament’s listing on the results page. Not a big improvement, but kind of nice if you want to do a quick check on the matches played in that tournament. I’ve also added a color-coding indicator of what tournaments Rafa was entered to play, but had to withdraw. You might need to do a “shift+refresh” on the page to clear the old style sheet out of your cash to see the new color coding.
On the results page, the doubles partners are now listed. It’s always bugged me that they weren’t there, but I never got around to adding them.
Since I’ve spent the day staring at the calendar, I’ve noticed a few things…Rafa’s lowest finish in any tournament he played was the round of 16. Not shabby. And, not counting Davis Cup, he withdrew from 4 tournaments this year – that’s all. Yes, one of them was the grand-daddy of all tournaments, but other than that, he’s just missed two completely optional 250s and an optional 500. Again, not bad. His match record for the year? 57 wins and 9 losses for a win/loss ratio of 86%. Again, not bad. The rest of the top 5: Fed 55-8 (87%); Murray 58-9 (87%); Djokovic 63-17 (79%); Del Potro 49-12 (80%).
Be with colm.
