Who is the 2nd best player right now?

Obviously the first one is Nadal. But after that I don't see any player that is playing well enough to be considered the 2nd best player right now. They are all playing at a pathetically weak level.


Federer? Playing like a total clown this year.
Djokovic? Playing awful tennis in the last 3 months.
Ferrer? Losing left and right to utter mugs.
Davydenko? Hasn't done shit this year apart from winning Miami.
Roddick? Can't hit a forehand anymore these days.
Nalbandian? Not even playing, he has eaten too many hamburgers.
Blake? Mindless ballbasher who hasn't won anything this year.
Murray? Maybe he's the 2nd best player now. Still hasn't done much.
Wawrinka? LOL, what a joke this clown is in the top 10.



Just goes to show how weak this year has been. Truly a mug era with only one good player who is winning everything thanks to one of the weakest years in tennis history.

Yeah, reaching two GS finals and one semi is obviously 'playing like a total clown'.

Maybe you need to rewatch his matches this year to the likes of Fish, Ginepri or Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo. Then come back and tell me Fed is playing at the same level he has been playing in the last few years.

The 2008 ATP Race doesn't lie.

I would have to go with Murray right now. Wimbledon QF and Toronto SF, each culminating with losses to Nadal.

Just about anyone who's not a moonballer/pusher.

Agree. The only player right know who can make it difficult for Nadal.

Well, but nobody is beating him. Why is that he has won like 30 matches in a row?

How short of memory you are. Fed has had his terrible matches all throughout his career, even when he managed to win in the end.
I never said he was playing on the same level, but as you seem to judge on RESULTS rather than on playing level, I thought I'd do exactly the same thing.

True that he has had terrible matches in the past that he used to pull out in the end somehow. Like that one against Suzuki in Tokyo in 2006. Still I've never seen him consistently playing so bad since he became #1. Matches against Fish and Simon were horror shows.

Re: Who is the 2nd best player right now?

At this period (and not the whole year) Nadal is playing much better than the rest with no crystal clear 2nd best but a few possible contestants like Federer, Murray and ... hmm can't think of anyone else to be honest

Nalbandian Del Potro Sampras Agassi

The Present - The Past

I could tell you but they'd delete my post afterwards.
