It seems that there is kind of an agreement that other than Fed and Rafa, who are already qualified, Safin, Roddick and Hewitt will also get in.
So five players are in, considering that an outsider will not win the US Open, Safin will fall out of the top seven by the year's end, and that this outsider will steal Marat's place. Let's hope that this kind of a thing will not happen
Following the Elite Four (Marat not included), we have Coria, who is doing quite well on faster surfaces this season and who is a good bet, Nikolay "Wrist" Davydenko, some 'clay-courters' in the figure of Gaston, Mariano, JCF and Ferrer, some big hitting from Gonzo, some veterans in the form of Andre and ToJo, and the almighty Gasquet.
Who do you think are the most likely to fill up the gap and qualify for the TMC? Of course things will heavily clear up after the USO, but let's see what you think right now.
