Top ten next year.... barring injury or what have you, of the players who finished in the top ten this year, I would expect to see the following (not necessarily in this order):
Roddick, Federer, Ferrero, Coria
If his injury doesn't plague him, Nalbandian could do it again.
If they play full schedules and don't retire
: Agassi and Hewitt
I've been predicting Moya to fall out of the top ten since he got back in, and he refuses to do it
But a lot of his points were earned in smaller tournaments... some of which that a now much improved Coria will likely be playing as well... he also defends some points in Miami.... then again, something went fishy in Australia (
) last year so he can only gain there... bah, Moya will likely stick around just to annoy me
If he's healthy, he's too good not to.
If Safin comes back healthy and plays a fully schedule, he can play at half best and make it back to the top 10.
I'm not sure what to make of Schuettler... if he keeps himself fit, I can't imagine him having a HUGE fall. he's been so consistent everywhere that if he loses in the first round of the Australian Open, he's still top ten - by some margin!
I'm sure we'll have a surprise or two, like we always do ... who called Coria or Schuettler at the end of last year?
