What would the Top Ten be if...

...wooden racquets returned?

John McEnroe made the case for the being brought back in his slot yesterday on the Artois Tennis Podcast.

1. Roger Federer
2. Rafael Nadal
3. Andy Roddick
4. Nikolay Davydenko
5. Fernando Gonzalez
6. Tommy Robredo
7. Novak Djokovic
8. Ivan Ljubicic
9. James Blake
10. Andy Murray

What would the Top Ten be if only wooden racquets could be used?

I think it would be great.

For the record, I think Mr Roddick might struggle with a small-headed wooden racquet. I think he'd be shanking the thing all over the place!

Re: What would the Top Ten be if...

Everyone except Federer, Murray Djokovic would lose their top ten place. And yes Fab would be in the top 10, although I doubt he would be number 1, as great as the magician is. I mean, come on, he's 34 years old now.

I support......
Fabrice Santoro

The Magician

Marcos Baghdatis Fernando Gonzalez

Florian Mayer Gustavo Kuerten Richard Gasquet

Feliciano Lopez Lukasz Kubot Hyung-Taik Lee Younes El Alynaoui Dick Norman Aisam Qureshi Dusan Vemic Michal Przysiezny Ernests Gulbis Carlos Moya Andy Murray Jonas Bjorkman Andrei Pavel Olivier Patience Mariano Zabaleta Jarkko Nieminen Fyrstenberg/Matkowski

Re: What would the Top Ten be if...

Mac only says this because he'd probably be world #2 still in this situation

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Actually, if you see him play still these days at the Albert Hall in London, you could believe he might make the Top 100 if everyone had wooden racquets.

Still an amazing player. And a funny bloke to listen to.
