Who Will Qualify as #7 and #8 for the T.M.C?

The Top 6 positions for the Tennis Masters Cup look set so what two players look the most promising to fill the #7 and #8 positions?

I'm hoping Berdych and Gasquet can qualify as the 7th and 8th players although players like Gonzales, Blake, Haas, Robredo, Ljubicic and even Moya remain strong contenders.

Which two seem more likely to pick up the most points during the rest of the Indoor season? Especially the Madrid and Paris Masters?

Thanks.

BTW, It's a shame about Murray, up until about early April he was around #5 or #6 in the race but then developed a wrist injury which has ruined his chances, and basically his post Miami year, for reaching the T.M.C.

Fernando can do well indoors, as can Berdych and Gasquet. Haas hasn't been too strong since the US Open surprisingly. Sadly I don't feel that Tommy (R) can qualify, Blake and Ljubicic are far too inconsistent this year to make it. Carlos looks to be running out of gas.

So I say that it's between Gonzalez, Berdych and Gasquet.

Filippo VOLANDRI, Pablo ANDUJAR, Yuki BHAMBRI, Fabio FOGNINI, Thomaz BELLUCCI,
Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV

i'm hoping for gasquet (for tennis itself) and haas, but i'm afraid the latter somehow lost his us open form somewhere along the road. actually, the indoor season is supposed to fit his game pretty well, but i'm not sure if he can pull himself together to finally get the results he should have.

if i remember correctly he won one of the season-ending masters back in the days, so it's possible, tommy. come on!

Haas needs some solid TMS performances and no more injuries. Like that will happen.

I want Moya and Canas. Unlikely but could well happen.

I want Gasquet and Haas to make it. They will makes things the most interesting out of the lot, imo. Plus it would be nice for Haas to finally qualify for the TMC at least once before he hangs it up. He would have made it plenty of times, it's just the injury bug that hit him at inopportune times.

Gonzalez has been doing shit ever since his great AO finals run. Ljubicic is a joke, Blake is too (though to a lesser extent than Ivan). Berdych is extreme hot and cold and Boredo is boring. WOuld be really cool to see Moya there after all these years, but he'll probably stink it up and tank after he loses a set or something.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

I want Gasquet to but I don't know if he will. If he does well in all the entered tournaments then he has a good chance.

Wow, can't believe many people in here really think Gasquet can make it. I hope Youzhny and Berdych, but I think It may be Blake and Gonzo.
