I would say Tommy Haas.

We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is


good luck: thomas enqvist and thomas johansson

Nobody, before anybody among those listed surpass Safin's career accomplishments he would have won another tournament and gained the confidence he's looking for or as he said he'll go crazy, lmao!

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
Sooooo, let's all get drunk and go to
heaven!

By Safin's achievements I assume you mean US Open title AND reaching year end number one (since Safin was only number two) regardless of age? None of those on the list is even close. They must win the US Open, Hewitt must lose early, and they have to have a spectacular indoor season to do this, all the same time with Hewitt faltering. I don't see it happening this year. And who knows who will be hot next year.

If you mean by winning two Slams before Safin does...Haas has a good shot at both US Open '02 and Aus Open '03, but it's doubtful he will keep his head (and shoulder) screwed on long enough to do so. (Wishful think though) Federer's form is lacking at the moment and none of the others on the list seem to have the game to be able to handle both hard court and Rebound Ace with equal aplomb.

I think that in the next few slams Safin will win another, and make it a littler harder to pass him

Of the above I agree with Lurker that Haas is potentially the most likely, but mentally it won't happen.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Tommy Haas has the best game from those listed

Marat will win another slam or 2 by end of 2003.

i don't see any of them getting to #1 just yet either
