Players Moving Up in 2006

Which players do you think will move up in the ranks in 2006? (not looking for top 10 necessarily, just big movers)

Some of the players I'm watching include:

Berdych (will he be consistent enough?)
Escude (could repeat great past results if he can overcome shoulder surgery)
Ferrero (signs he may be getting back to peak form)
Gasquet (should be healthy again in 06 and playing more ATP events)
Haas (improved physical conditioning recently)
Murray (great potential starting to be realized)

Re: Players Moving Up in 2006

Apart from the players you mentioned:

Kuerten, Philippoussis and Fish will probably make a comeback (they can't finish next year worse than they are now).

And Djokovic, Monfils and Baghdatis for obvious reasons.

Re: Players Moving Up in 2006

Robby Ginepri will continue to do well next year and will definitely move up.

Re: Players Moving Up in 2006

I think James Blake will continue to move up. And I am confindent that Nico Massu will work his way back up the ranks once again.

NICOLAS MASSU

FERNANDO GONZALEZ

Haha since he promised to win every match just for me, he's constantly losing everything. I wouldn't count on him. However, I still believe

The others my faves to see them up: JMDP, Korolev, Gael, Marcos B., Jarkko, Santi Giraldo, Chucho Acasuso, time for Chela to move up, Zabaleta after the surgery can be up as well and Polish guys Adam Chadaj and Łukasz Kubot !!!

and David Nalbandian - "let's go straight to number one"
