Fab Four Future?

Can the Fab Four weather 2012?

In 2011, Djokovic and Murray have moved up, Federer and Nadal have moved down, but in a many ways, the fab 4 have looked as unassailable as ever. Two grand slams have finished with the final 4 intact, the other two having 3/4. 3 players have shared all the masters tournaments and gobbled up a number of smaller titles as well. Fed has reached a new low this year, but still seems miles above Ferrer, his next closest competitor.

What is in store for them in 2012?

Re: Fab Four Future?

Mugray will be out of top 4 next year; the huge mouth luck will finally run out and he'll finally begin the downward spiral which will take him out of top 10 by the end of 2012

Re: Fab Four Future?

I believe the top 4 ranked players of the year-end 2012 rankings will be the same four as in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

You can squawk to your hearts content, it doesn't change the year end rankings

Re: Fab Four Future?

Mugray doesn't deserve his rank and his obnoxious and annoying fans like Sapeod and MuzzahLovah should be banned from general forums. I am looking forward to 2012 where Mugray will fail yet again in Melbourne, RG, Wimbledon, Olympics and USO

Oh, don't mind me, I'm just going to bask in Murray's victories and bageling of Nadal a little longer.

Re: Fab Four Future?

Ferrer is kinda by himself atm- way behind Federer, way ahead of Berdych. But he's actually closing in on Fed, within 1000



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

Soderling was year-end nr4 in 2010. Seems like people totally forget he was nr4 from nov to april just because they are obsessed with a fab four. Which sounds a bit gay anyway. Gay as in happy. No prejudice here

But yes both Del Potro and Soderling has shown they can rack up enough points to break the top4. So one of them might do in 2012 or 2013

I believe Nadal is done and will be #7 by the end of 2011. Dolgopolov will get into the top 4 instead.
