Three former world no. 1 American legends are in the race for clinching the top spot in the 2012 PowerShares with two events left for the year.
Andre Agassi, John McEnroe and Jim Courier will battle for the top spot as the final events take place in Denver and Anaheim.
Courier currently holds the lead with 1500 points, while McEnroe is second with 1200 and Agassi is fourth with 900.
“It's been a hard fought season and I’m fired up to try to lock the title up this week,” commented Courier. “It’s moments like these that keep me pumped up to play and I’m sure both Andre and John are plotting a way to snatch the title. I wouldn’t want it any other way. May the best man win.”
Courier needs to win one of the two titles to clinch the top spot.

How to play from the baseline
The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.
The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
