Will All The Top 8 To Make The Quarters?

In 2009 only 1 top 8 player didn't make the quarters (Murray) in 2010 only 2 didn't (Del Potro and Soderling) so can all 8 do it this year?

They can, but it's not at all a certainty. Some matches are toss-ups, for example Wawa vs Roddick and Berdych vs Verdasco.

Roddick will lose to Wawa.

Ignore the "can they" on the poll, it's meant to be "will they"

Verdasco will beat Berdych. And Cilic might upset Nadal. Don't see any problems for the other 6.

Re: Will All The Top 8 To Make The Quarters?

There is a good chance, but I guess you should have made the poll as "Who is most likely to not make the QF of the top 8".

Suicide Tennis:
Titles: 2010 Kuala Lumpur, 2012 Shanghai Masters.
Ranking: Reached no. 1 for the first time right after 2013 Wimbledon.

No, Verdasco can stun Berdych, Nadal and Federer are a deal done though.

+1. Yes, I think this too.
But other 7... yes. (I hope Berdych will not lose to Verdasco)

Never ever give up

Re: Will All The Top 8 To Make The Quarters?

Nadal vs Cilic
Ferrer vs Raonic
Soderling vs Dolgopolov
Murray vs Melzer
Berdych vs Verdasco
Djokovic vs Almagro
Roddick vs Wawrinka
Federer vs Robredo

I reckon at least one of Djokovic/Murray will have difficulties too (but probably still win).

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Will All The Top 8 To Make The Quarters?

Verdasco and Wawrinka can beat Berdych and Roddick, but I doubt that can happen, so YES

Grigor Dimitrov | Rafael Nadal | Juan Martin del Potro | Andy Murray

Re: Will All The Top 8 To Make The Quarters?

Wawrinka will actually win. How can he lose to a S&P?
