First to top 10: Nole or Muzza ?

I don't have an option to create poll for some reason . British media is salivating at the prospects of Andy Murray storming into the top 10 and they always mention he is the favourite to do so out of all teens which is basically him and Nole at this point. British media have been making digs at Nole for a while including that ridiculous story about moving to GB yet they are always mentioned together . http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/mai...4/sthodg24.xml
Nole is younger by a week and they are both poised to do it before their 20th birthday which may very well happen during IW and Miami where they have precious little to defend

Re: First to top 10: Nole or Muzza ?

Berdych is 21, is he not?

It doesn't matter which one of Nole or Andy gets there first - they are both going there eventually and are probably going to stay there for a while. I think Andy has the better all round game and has better results against top players, although I think Nole is a more consistant player who won't have the fluctuations in form or suffer as many bad defeats. They are both incredibly talented and are legitimate top ten players.

It's hilarious people trying to build some bitter rivalry between them considering how uninterested they are in that. They are friends, they say nothing but good things about each other, they want each other to win and do well and then you come on here and you get people trying to build it as some be all, end all, fight to the death, I hate you and your entire blood-line, grrr rivalry.

Novak Djokovic ~ Juan Martin Del Potro ~ Paul Henri Mathieu ~ Rafael Nadal ~ Tomas Berdych ~ Stanislas Wawrinka ~ Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ~ Richard Gasquet

Re: First to top 10: Nole or Muzza ?

#Both will be Top-#10 by the end of the year & into TMC... the who comes 1st will just be a matter of weeks/months!

Prediction:

*Nole will finish at #5

*Andy will finish at #8

It's going to be a close one.. but Nole has more points to defend at Roland Garros.

Nole may get there first- but no offense to him (I like him well enough) but I think Murray is a great talent and will stay there longer.

I like a lot of players.

Re: First to top 10: Nole or Muzza ?

Muzza has like 100 points to defend till the week before Wimby so I'd hve to pick him.

On the other hand, Nole is a really consistent guy, rarely gives really bad performances...

I guess it will depend on luck more than anything else. Who gets better draws from now on.

Murray.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.
