Ljubicic, Blake, Davydenko

The sooner these losers are out of the top 10, the better. In the major tournaments, they suck. All three have never even won a masters title between them. Hopefully the likes of Murray, Djokovic, Gasquet etc will put these chokers where they belong - outside the top 10.

Today's level of Top 10 is lower than it used to be in the past. But I disagree they shouldn't be in Top 10. If not them, then who...?

great, this has never been discussed before.

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

I don't think he does. He is very good in the MM tournaments but what has he ever actually done at a major? He has never even won a 5 setter.

The likes of Ljubo, Davydonkey and Blake are just transitional top 10 players until Murray, Djokovic, Gasquet, Berdych reach their full potential.

Who would you suggest he be replaced by? He's won five titles this year, second only to Federer himself and tied with Rafa. Yeah, you're right. He sucks. What was I thinking?

Say what you want about Roddick but at least he does it at the majors unlike the three chokers mentioned above.

Not enough hate threads for today?
So the Madrid and IW finals were just flukes, huh?

I'm sick of all the Ljubicic bashing. The guy has had a consistent year, which is why he's top three in the world. He's solid and usually beats the people he's supposed to, but has trouble defeating those above him. (Similar to the rest of the tour actually ). Is he the best player in the history of tennis or will his name be more than occasionally mentioned in the future? No. Doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to be top ten right now.

I don't even like him.

Ljubicic, Blake and Davydenko all came into this event having won a tournament last week. Their defeats say more about the difficulty of winning in successive weeks.

In essence winning tournaments is what puts players in the top 10.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

See little to differentiate him from Ljubicic and Davydenko in terms of their belonging to the top 10.

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
