so who are the best clay courters on the planet?

so who, in your best estimation, will prove to be the 5 best clay courters on the planet in 2008? its a bit of a guessing game if you will.

here is the way i see it unfolding this year:

1. Clay Monster (Nadal)
2. Djokovic
3. Davydenko
4. Nalby
5. Fed

Monaco and Almagro are out to make a name on clay as well. we will see their progress. Monaco pocketed 2 clay titles last year. Almagro has at least one with a huge win over Nalby. Speaking of Nalby, he too has a clay titile to his name this year already.

thoughts? how do you see it unfolding?

Re: so who are the best clay courters on the planet?

Why is Djokovic number 2 for you, Clay Death? Has he reached the SF once and come close to winning it 3 times? (Davydenko)
Or even more embarrassingly, Federer destroyed and bagelled the Clay Monster on his own surface and has reached the French Open SF once and FINAL TWICE and yet he's number 5?
Seriously, WTF.

Re: so who are the best clay courters on the planet?

1 - Rafa Nadal
2 - Roger Federer
3 - everybody else.

All of this dependent on form, of course.

And Federer has had a horrible year thus far for his standards, so how do you justify putting him so high? This thread is asking for people's opinions, and as you expect to be able to express yours, let other people express theirs.
