Things got tighter at the top with Pablo Santos-Gonzalez taking a week off. Juan Albert Viloca only got in one match so is tied for 1st. That allowed Jose Luis Muguruza and Konstantinos Economidis to catch up, pulling to within 3 and 4 matches, respectively.
Roger Federer again had a good week, reaching the finals in Rome, but once again Rafael Nadal was his undoing. Federer slips below Jo-Wilfried Tsonga as a result. Nadal moves from 7th to 5th.
