5 best players on each surface this year

I was so bored I actually went on tennis talk. I saw this thread on there and thought it was a good idea.

Clay:

1. Nadal by a lot
2. Federer
3. Djokovic
4. Ferrer
5. Almagro

Grass:
1. Nadal thanks to Federer's shit play at Wimbledon final
2. Federer
3. I'll say Murray because Safin and Schuettler only got to the semis because of lucky draws. Yes, he beat Djokovic but we all know how Djokovic was playing then. Plus I like Murray.
4. Safin
5. Djokovic

Hardcourt:
1. Djokovic
2. Murray
3. Federer
4. Nadal
5. Del Potro/Simon

Re: 5 best players on each surface this year

You've got my vote against all but the very top ACC stars. Why downplay Murrays achievements on clay?

4. Safin
5. Schuettler because I don't know who else. Gasquet was more impressive on grass play-wise though imo.

Hardcourt:
1. Murray
2. Djokovic
3. Federer
4. Nadal
5. Del Potro/Simon

You obviously like Murray so much.

? Murray pretty much outperformed everyone on hardcourt in the second half of the season. 2 ms, grand slam final and beat the top 3 on hard courts. Not to mention that he beat both hardcourt slam winners this year twice on hard courts. I bumped him up on grass because he beat better grass court players than Safin and Schuettler.

Murray beat the top 3 on hard court and beat both Fed and Djokovic twice on a hard court. He also has 5 hard court titles this year.

Yep, expect there's two guys who actually have a HC slam title and semi in the other one, but hey, how does that compare to a final and masters His grass ranking is not bad either all things considered

OK, you're right, Djokovic should be first. However Fed didn't win a single MS title so I'm not putting him second.

Del Pony, Almugro, Schuettler and Safin shouldn't be appearing in any top 5 lists.

I count indoor as hardcourt as there are not many carpet events anyway.

Of course not, that would be a sacrilege

Djokovic played great grass-court tennis at Queens. He should be higher than Schuettler or Safin, Wimbledon notwithstanding.

Next year and beyond, people will only remember who won AO and US Open and the TMC before they would be interested on who won Cincinatti.
