Current Overall Standing: 29th
My MVP for the Week: Tomas Berdych (Czech Republic) with $89,872, losing to Thomaz Bellucci (Brazil) in the quarterfinals of the Mutua Marilena Madrid Open

Berdych is having a great 2011 season so far. No titles yet but this is the seventh tournament out of nine in which he's made the quarterfinals or better. He looks to be in very good shape with just two weeks to go until Roland Garros.
Today's win for Djokovic was big. I'm starting to believe. It's folly to read too much into any one match but over the past two years, success in Madrid has been a springboard to winning both Roland Garros and Wimbledon. If Novak can beat Rafa on clay, we're in for an exciting summer.
