2012 final top 10, how do you see it?

This year's top 10 - I just can't figure out who is likely to drop out next year and who will replace.

Djokovic
Nadal
Murray
Federer
Ferrer
Tsonga
Berdych
Fish
Tipsarevic
Almagro

Ok, I guess Tips and Almagro will fade, maybe Fish too. To name 3 replacements...go with Delpo, Dolgo and Isner. I see the top four staying the same though. Would like to hear other people's opinions of the new top 10 for next year.

Also wonder if a top 10 remained exactly the same for any two years in a row, with the exact same top 10 players but not necessarily the same sequential order.

Berdych, Tipsarevic and Almagro

Fish probably. Tsonga and Ferrer will probably be somewhere nearby. Expect to see Soderling and Delpo make comebacks. I expect Isner or one of the young guys to maybe step up. Gasquet maybe, but he, like Cilic, chokes at important moments.

Re: 2012 final top 10, how do you see it?

1) Djokovic (after much switching during the year)
2) Nadal
3) Murray
4) Fedex
5) Tsonga
6) Del Potro
7) Soderling
8) Berdych
9) Monfils
10) Nishikori (or another young gun)

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

If healthy, Fish should stay. Delpo and Soderling should return (also if healthy), Monfils perhaps. Others have a chance only if somebody gets sick/injured.

Btw, if that happens, average age of the top 10 will be 27.3

Re: 2012 final top 10, how do you see it?

I think 90% agree that Delpo and Soderling - healthy both are safe bet to be top 10- both guys have potential to be top 5 too. Also Tipsy and Almagro are most likely going to fall out from top 10- they simply won´t have such good seasons and if they even will, Delpo,Soderling simply are much better and can get much more points to ranking. Big 4, Tsonga, Berdych i think are if not injured also safe bet to be top 10. Ferrer and Fish are question. Ferrer will defend a lot of points and is not the youngest, Fish too. I think they can be little worse next year and this could mean that other can go higher than them. Even Ferrer who is 5th, can imagine that Tsonga, Berdych, Delpo, Soderling all can go past him - that would mean 9th and imagine someone unexpected to make good run and he could finish 11th for example. Also Monfils have potential to be top 10 finally to end of the year. Dolgo-Isner can´t imagine them - one is more reliable on serve and can´t get points on clay and another is simply too inconsistent and should change service motion- i think Dolgo can´t be top 10 with his FS in 40s%, but if Almagro, Tipsy and Melzer were top 10 Dolgo and Isner have chance too.

Lol that topspindoctor thinks Murray will not be in the top 10. Wishful thinking methinks (barring serious injury).
