The top 4

Who and when can change the current top 4?

1) Nadal. It's going to take an early exit from Wimbly and USO for him not to be 2009 World No. 1

2) Federer. He may drop to number 4 by the end of the year but he will be still clear of 5 and below.

3) Murray. Getting better by the match but still lacks the experience of defending major points; which he has to do later in the year.

4) Djokovic. Inconsistent in almost everything he does. Can't defend a title but will always do well when least expected.

Del Potro is the closest but he's possibly still a full year from challenging.

Wrong. Nadal will be number 1 even if those two things happen.

Chuck's slice cuts the ball like a grater does to cheese.

No. It is still possible for him to lose #1 EOY ranking.

Re: The top 4

I don't know who & when, maybe in two years time.
Nadal is far ahead from the rest, then is the group of three players on a very similar level, then through a very long distance nothing, and players like Del Potro, Verdasco, Roddick but none of them has potential at the moment to break into Top 4.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

You should have a better consideration of yourself. You call yourself NOBODY.

Sure, Murr is gonna take Rafa down. That's what he said two months ago, anyway.

Re: The top 4

Much as I hate it, if Fed doesn't improve his game years end will be Murray number 2, Fed 3 unless Dj can keep focus and play to his ability then yes its number 4 for Fed in 2009

Federer Gasquet

Re: The top 4

Murray will probably take number two before the start of the N American hard court season, but fair to good chance he then loses it to Djoko by the end of year.

Fed is stuffed for the rankings unless he wins Wimbledon and defends the US Open and his Roland Garros final, a pretty tall order. He just doesn't get enough points from the masters these days to stay at number2 otherwise.
