(Among the top 30) Who will enter the Top 10 in 2011?

Top 20 will certainly, but top 30?
Not only on year-end, but anytime during the year, including newcomers.

JMDP. I expect him to be anywhere from #3-5 by the end of 2011. He's definitely in the same league as Chokovic and Murray.

Re: Who will enter the Top 10 in 2011?

Monfils is currently ranked 12. He has nothing to defend early season. He will be in the top 10 very soon. Not sure why he isn't in your poll.

-AO; R32
- Indian Wells; R64
-Miami; nothing
-Rome; nothing
-Madrid; quarters
-Roland Garros; R64

Tsonga is the opposite. His points came early in the season and he has nothing to defend starting in the summer (Canada) due to his extended injury. He is currently ranked 13. Barring injury (which never happens for him), he will for sure be in the top 8.

Fish is ranked 16. He has 10 points to defend at the Australian and 25 points at Indian Wells. He did make the R16 in Miami. He really has nothing to defend in the majors until US Open. He could easily make top 10.

Almagro and Cilic have lots of early season points to defend, so they will probably drop out of the top 20 for a while. Hope not. Ferrer has nothing to defend at AO, but lots of clay points. Don't see him defending those. He will drop like a stone. Roddick has big point to defend at Brisbane, AO, Indian Wells, and Miami. He will also drop for a while, but should do well at Wimby and the US hardcourts and end in the top 10 again. I'm curious to see if Berdych can stay in the top 10. Hope so. I think Soderling will hold.

Not thinking we'll see any big surprises this year in terms of someone vaulting into the top 10. Looks like the current group will pretty much hold their positions (taking into account what I said above).

Nalbandian. He's top 30 already with literally nothing to defend bar washington.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

David Nalbandian

Davydenko should return to the top 10 with ease.

Re: Who will enter the Top 10 in 2011?

What do we have here? A poll by Blackbriar stacked with a retarded selection of frenchmen. Must have been at least 2 days since the last one.

As much as I like him, the idea of Llodra entering the top 10 is preposterous. Even if he was good enough, he'd still tank every other tournament. And not having Monfils in the poll is stupid. The only way he doesn't get into top 10 is if he gets injured (which granted is quite possible).

No Del Potro in your list is also really dunb of course.

...does everybody else see Richard Gasquet creep into the poll or is it only on my screen?

No way is Potro going to be top ten in 2011.

Sydney will tell us a lot. So will AO.

I don't know how anyone could know anything about his current condition / comeback possibilities unless you are in his inner circle and have been working with him the past year.

Why so sure? If he gets back in form by mid-season, it's not a foregone conclusion at all. Of course, getting back to his level of before is not a given either, but whoever is capable of really deep runs in slams and masters can end up in top 10.

I second simplet's comment about Mika

Montanes, Pico and Troicki get there only in SF stories.

You guys are funny. You think the tour's stacked with his best friends who'd like to see him rise, eh? Every one on tour - including the # 1, would like to whack him out of his confidence now that they have a chance. As it is he'll have to try very hard to come back to his consistent brickwall level of play with a wrist that's not been played for long. And if he's to raise the level to his ballbashing best of USO 2009 (and only with that level can he expect to speed into the top ten by year end), he has to dig deep. How much tennis must he play to get to that level. Logically:

Top 50. Yes.
Top 10. No.
Sorry. Hard facts.

Bangkok 2010. 'nuff said.

Comeback boy
...not till 2012.

Re: Who will enter the Top 10 in 2011?

Probably Monfils and Tsonga, but they may or may not be in the hunt for the last qualification spot at the WTF. I also feel optimistic about Del Potro's chances. On the flip side I see Berdych, Roddick and Ferrer not doing as well as they did in 2010, but Tomas should still make the WTF (I think Verdasco will as well).

I modified the title so that everybody understand clearly: I just added all the players from 21 to 30.
Wen know top 15 players will all enter the top 10 at one point or another, it's a mathematical evidence. Top 30 is another story.
