Any chance of this guy breaking into the the top 10 next year?
Doubt it, the current top 6-10 is too strong. Roddick, Davydenko, Verdasco, Tsonga, Sod. Even Gonzo can't get in the top 10.
There seems to be a big bracket just below these guys, competing for the 11-20 spots: Simon, Cilic, Steps, Boredo, Monf, Haas, Ferrer, Berdy, Hewitt, maybe Youzhny and Ljubo also now they're back showing some form. Wawrinka belongs in that bracket imo.
