New to the top 100 - 2016 [0]

Nishioka is right now the closest to the achievement, but 2016's potential is perhaps a little smaller than 2015. Don't think we're gonna see so many new faces this time around.

I'm not so sure about that - last year we saw the start of the process of the oldies being pushed out, but mostly by a lot of gen useless finally crawl in (albeit with a fair sprinkling of teens). Also last year relatively few bit runs up the rankings (as we did the year before) - I think we might see a few more of those this year though.

This year I think the generation change process in the top 100 will really accelerate as gen late 90s really come into their own.

Nishioka is an obvious one, but I would also suggest that Ymer, Donaldson, Kachenov, Fritz, Tiafoe, Rublev, Jasika, Halys, Djere, Duckhee Lee, Tommy Paul and several others well within striking distance.

And several in the slightly older group with a chance (among the Australians, Jordan Thompson and JP Smith in with a chance).

Good win for the recent new Top 100 player last year, Munoz-de la Nava, scoring an upset against Lopez, and also faces a fellow new Top 100 player last year, Kyle Edmund.

It's hard to see any of them making it other than Nishioka and Carballes, but both of them haven't been in good form.

Gombos came so close and fell off the wagon

Fritz seems to be a very safe bet. Not only is he in excellent form, but he is sure to get some WCs soon and really has no points to defend until summer.

Melzer is in very good form, already won 2 challengers. Basic too is in fine form.

I'd put my money on Basic to be the first. Yeah, Gombos has the talent, has the game, but all he needs is that killer mentality and to just stop choking matches, I've had this talk with him a lot and he has been told his by many more people. He made leaps in the mental part of his game, going from a futures player to a seeded challenger player, but still needs that something extra to live up to his potential.

Agree with you on Fritz, his game is looking really good, he already received a wild card in Memphis, I expect him to get one in Delray as well.

I really don't think Melzer or Basic are good enough for the Top 100. Basic would have to do exceptionally well these weeks, because when clay comes around he should stand no chance.

Melzer did well to win two titles but they were weak tournaments.

Basic is now one win away from pulling it off and being the first in 2016.
