players who will "vanish" in 2006

here's what i think:

most likely:
moya - need i say more?
kuerten - really wasn't able to recover from injury
puerta - future in peril depending on doping allegations
davydenko - i wouldn't be surprised if 2005 was just a fluke
fish, dent, philippoussis - they'll fade out further

slight possibility:
ljubicic - might fade out for a time like nalbandian because he can't seem to bring it during big matches. might affect his confidence.

questionable:
nalbandian - we'll see if his tmc win will finally make him a consistent title contender

Fair assessments.

I hope Davydenko ends up not being another Rainer Schuettler. That would be a shame.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

"vanish"? you mean players being abducted by aliens??

Alex Popp. If he hasn't already.
At 29, you have to wonder whether he'd go back for some challenger events, or just move on to something else.

If that happens, the forum will be all over it.

Ferrer (will drop out of the top 30)
Contrary to megadeth, I actually believe that Moya will make a comeback.

Re: players who will "vanish" in 2006

Moya is done. i never seen a player that will run around a backhand so much. even gets out of position for next shot, just so he does not have to hit a backhand.

Re: players who will "vanish" in 2006

I agree about everybody except Ljubicic and Nalbandian.

Henman and Moyá, I am afraid. But both are too great players just to vanish, so I wish them a career end in style.

Niti, I'm your friend too. He has to make a phenomenal comeback. But will he succeed? Let's pray to Lord Carlos.

And I hope Kolya will not be another Schuettler.
But on who'll vanish - Kuerten, Coria, Nalbandian (wishful thinking).

Re: players who will "vanish" in 2006

Sjeng Schalken will go further down the road.
Karol Kucera will be gone
Marat Safin after the Australian Open, but will have some weird resurrection again.

Moyá, F. Lopez, Mirnyi, Hanescu, Henman, Rusedski, Chela, Serra will all drop out of the Top 50.

BEMELMANS | CHARDY | CHIUDINELLI
CIPOLLA| ROGER-VASSELIN | MCGEE




Bachinger|Basilashvili|Brands|Broady|Clezar|Cuevas |Eysseric|Giannessi|Gombos
Granollers|Grigelis|Huta Galung|Ilhan|Kudla|Al. Kuznetsov|Mannarino
Menendez|Mitchell|Naso|Paire|Peliwo|Polansky|Rober t|Rubin|Smyczek|J. Sousa|Weintraub

If both are fit, I fail to see how neither can at least improve on their current rankings next year.

Moya can come back; Puerta is a top 30 player if he is still allowed to play; Davydenko is a top 20 player; Dent will remain in the top 40; Ljubicic is a top 30 player; Nalbandian is top 10 when fit.

I agree that Kuerten and Flip are finished; Fish is capable of getting back into the top 100 if he gets back to full fitness.
