Re: What will Marat Safin's year-end rank be in 2004?

wow I have absolutely no clue....I mean if his 2004 comeback is anything like his 2003 attempt then it won't be anywhere near the top 10 but if he's back and really ready to go then obviously it's possible.

I dont wanna jinx!
if he's healthy and hungry enough there's no reason why he cant be at the top - it'll be tough for him no doubt.
ask me after the AO and Ill have a better answer.....

Re: Re: What will Marat Safin's year-end rank be in 2004?

this is really though to say, cause Marat is so unpredictable. If he`s healthy and hungry he will be back definetly! Though its a long and difficult road.

doing ranges of ranking ( eg. 1-3, 4-6, 7-9) is better than just one rank. i say just below top 10

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

I picked "Lower than 6".

I couldn't even begin to guess where Marat will be. I think it's pretty easy to bet that he won't finish as the number one player, but he certainly has the ability to finish somewhere in the top ten if he can play well.

I have no idea. My gut tells me that he will finish lower than number 6 for sure.

I'm guessing that if everything's ok he'll get back into the top 10, and probably be between 7 and 4

Re: What will Marat Safin's year-end rank be in 2004?

I'm surpised at the confidence of some fans here. I'm Safin's fan too, but let's be more objective. At his best he is in top-3. But considering the fact that he is starting from 40-50% readiness, and that he lacks many points we should say that he will get to the top ten in the third (hopefully) quarter of the season and then there would be an extreme fight. If he would get to the top3 that would be on the Master's Cup.

Marat has nothing to defend next season while all the other players have A LOT to defend. I'm not being too optimistic here, but it's not impossible. The situation is a bit like in 2000, only this time he was injured and not screwing up. If he gets back to form around RG then a lot can still happen before the end of the season.

Well, of course we should not be too optimistic, but everything is possible. Its just a question of him getting his confidence back, which could least some time though.
