Re: Best 5 men and woman ranked above 32

for a start i'd say Philip Kohlschreiber. he pushed federer to 7-6(6) in the final set where he lost in the Quarter finals of Doha. He is now in the QF of the Heineken open after beating JC fererro and now faces ferrer!! he was last years heineken open chanpion.

Victor Hanescu - from what iv seen he has some improvements in his game, has moved up four places in the rankings...got to the QF of the Doha singles and SF of the Doha doubles. despite his heinekan open first round loss to monaco, i think he can improve!!

Ill get back to you on the other's later! lol

Andy Murray -- Rafa Nadal --Lleyton Hewitt -- Marat Safin -- Novak Djokovic --Del Potro

Re: Best 5 men and woman ranked above 32

The men:

Mikhail Youzhny - provided he hits the ball with his racquet, not something else.

Carlos Moya - with all the experience he has got, he should still be able to give even the best players a run for their money. Especially on clay.

Mario Ancic - has a good all-round game for his height, his volleys are especially good compared to most of his contemporaries. He might use them more often. If only injuries and illnesses avoided him.

Janko Tipsarevic - is a very good competitor, enjoys the big occasion and plays well on it too. And he is a very good shotmaker.

Ernests Gulbis - great serve, lethal groundstrokes, plays seemingly without much effort. If he finds a balance, and matures into his game, he might be a real threat on a regular basis.

But this is a subjective list, several other players could be mentioned.

Re: Best 5 men and woman ranked above 32

I would say that the most dangerous to avoid for the Australian open might be :

Hewitt
Gulbis
Ancic (very experienced as well in slams, and a real fighter)
Nieminen (good start of the season, quarter-finalist last year, experience)
Tipsarevic

I would have said Nishikori instead of Tipsarevic but it seems he has a problem with his arm.

Same for Youzhny if he was not coming back from injury

And Querrey can also be very dangerous.
