Based on the latest ATP Race rankings (below), looks like the top six players including Andy Roddick are in leavingĀ  just two spots remaining in the eight-man London field next month.

But there’s still plenty of points to be had between now and then with the Shanghai and Paris Masters to play and three weeks of lower tier tournament action in between.

Looking at the contenders I think Fernando Verdasco will get the #7 slot and for #8 I think Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will leapfrog Fernando Gonzalez and Robin Soderling.

The #9 player (and I think #10 also) is not completely left out, he will get the invite as an alternate should he choose.

Regarding the No. 1 ranking, as long as Nadal doesn’t win both Masters events Federer will likely finish No. 1.
