No, sorry. I think he will finish in the top 30 this year.

he's now just 12th in the Race, and will not gain much points on clay, so very unlikely

He's not even in top 8 in the race, meaning he would not only need to maintain this throughout the season, but do better. Not to mention we're yet to see what he can do on clay.

Re: What do you think, will Raonic play this year's World Tour Finals in London?

I'd put my hand in the fire that he wont. He is solid but he hasn't played many top 10 guys yet. Also, clay season with alot of points avilable is coming and i doubt that he can collect many points there. He would need some crazy result to even have a chance (ex. semis of Wimbledon or final/win on some masters) and i don't tihnk he is ready.

If he can mantain his rank and keep himself in top 30 by the end of the season he should call this year very successful.

Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric


P.S. Watch out for Donna Vekic and Borna Coric, 2020. Hopman cup winners. - posted in 2011, let's see if it happens

I was about to post the same thread. I don't think he'll qualify. Maybe he'll be in Top 20 in the year-rankings

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

Don't think so, no. Top 20 at most.

Re: What do you think, will Raonic play this year's World Tour Finals in London?

you need more than one good run to be qualified for the WTF, you needed around 3400 points last two years ... the only "one run" which could give it to you is win a slam

useless old guy

He can not be a consistent top 8 player for the whole year.
