Nicolás Almagro Sánchez Rolle from Murcia gets to the top 10 for the first time ever

I think he will. Right now he's ranked 13th and this week he's won two matches in Bs. As. where he defended just a first round loss. He probably won't get into the top 10 after this tournament, though, but I think he'll manage to do it eventually this year.

he'd defending a lot of points in IW and Miami so it'll be tough for him.

He should gain quite a few at MC and Rome though.

that's what i thought as well. MC and Rome, where he only defends seconds rounds, are big chances for him.

looking at the tournaments he played last year, two things grabbed my attention:

1- too many

2- too much clay. he's not that much of a mug on hardcourts so he should dare to make the jump in order to become a better hardcourt player in the long run, imo... even nadal realized this a long time ago and i actually think mugro's agressive playing style is more suited for hardcourts.

haven't checked his schedule for the present year but given his decision to play in south america, i doubt the two points above are likely to change.

He definitely will. He's one of the best players on clay, so he'll gain many points on there. He is getting better and better too. He'll do great on non-clay tournaments too. If he keeps his consistency against lower ranked players going then he'll definitely reach the top 10. He'll be around #7 by the end of the year, I think. He's better than Berdych, Melzer, Roddick & Youzhny, who are in his way....he will overtake them, I think. Can't see him overtaking Ferrer or the Big 5.

He could reach Verdasco status at best. It's there where his lack of brain for tennis would stop his progress, as it happens to Clownando.

He's not half the choker he once was, so maybe



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Almagro >>>>>>>>> Verdasco.

He's not anywhere near the headcase Verdasco is, and nowhere near being as much of a choker as him....

He'll probably reach top 5, replacing Mugray by the end of the year.

A player as good as Almagro reaching the top 10 would be far from a joke....

Wrong. Top 5 = no. Top 10 = yes. Nobody will replace Murray in the top 5 for a long time.

Hopefully not

Probably would be the worst player to enter the top 10 since ... Mugray (just to annoy Terra Massive )

Well probably the worst player to enter top 10 since Simon if he does make it.
