It's not clear yet whether it's going to matter in the end but what's clear now is the region of the rankings where David is going to finish this season. Today, his last points from 2011 disappeared from David's count. With his 90 quarterfinal points from Stockholm gone, he loses 12 positions and is now ranked #77. And with no further points to defend and no further events to play, that's pretty much where he's going to be ranked at the end of the year.
And at the start of the next season - if he decides to play another one.
Apart from that there's no further news from David. After his guest appearance at the Challenger event last Friday, he has now dropped off the radar again.
Meanwhile, and even though the first round against Germany next year is still months away, there's been another round of Davis Cup drama, with reports about Delpo skipping the first round (which he usually does, anyway) and then an official denial issued by the AAT. This time, though the drama hasn't been limited to the Argentine team. Only days later, Philipp Kohlschreiber announced that he'll definitely skip the tie, due to his ongoing feud with the German captain. Which is of course good news for Argentina. At the same time it's a step that David wouldn't have taken, also not during his more tumultuous times with Tito Vázquez.
Here's hoping that David will be there in February when the two drama teams get to meet.
Finally, here's a look back at how David gained those Stockholm points he dropped today (courtesy of Andvari):
