will davydenko be in the top 5 at the end of the year

he has alot of points to defend at paris and the us open.

07-06-2007, 08:31 AM
yes, he'll gain a lot of points from Wimbledon and doesnt have anything to defend from the 3 Masters before Paris

also because apart from Fed, Nadal, Rodick and Djoko the others are far from consistent

07-06-2007, 08:32 AM
just wondering thoughts? he has alot of points to defend in paris& us open

Most likely.

07-06-2007, 09:01 AM
Yep because he will have many points because he will have at least 5 very good results in the atp tourneys out of the millions he plays and he will have a lot of points from solid performinces at the masters series events and the US open!

hey mate there is the exact same thread on the first page of GM :lol:

07-06-2007, 09:09 AM
I'm saying that yes, he will remain in the top 5. Good on him, he worked hard for that ranking.

07-06-2007, 09:09 AM
oh you started that aswell! :lol:

Mods should delete this!

Well, frankly the last year he has improved significantly and just had an improved Wimblty eprformance. I see no evidence that he will slip out of the top 5, barring something like an injury.

One question - How come you hate Kolya so much?

You always make threads questioning Kolya's top 5 ranking.

Kolya hasn't have the best year but its been really, really consistent.

07-06-2007, 10:44 AM
there is no one else to take him out of top 5 :shrug:

end of 07 yes
end of 08 no chance

An interesting note is that Rafa is planning to play on clay after Wimbledon. He'll probably miss Bastad (although you never know) but show up for Stuttgart this time.

I bet Davydenko is thrilled. Nonetheless he will rule Sopot. The greatest stage of them all.

07-06-2007, 12:52 PM
no I do not think so, but he will finish in the top 10 for sure

he has to defend many points (us open semis and paris bercy titles his biggest defenses), and will not likely

07-06-2007, 12:58 PM
I think he will stay in the top 10, But will fall out of the top 5. Sadly to say. Hes a great player and had a great season on teh caly but thats over

07-06-2007, 01:02 PM
He will prove all critics wrong!!!

07-06-2007, 01:09 PM
Of course he will be, he is playing so consistent. Even at his least favourite tournament he did great. He gained so much points in Wimbledon.

Race standings as of now:

1. Nadal - 836 (after QF)
2. Federer - 651 (before QF)
3. Djokovic - 521 (before QF)
4. Roddick - 329 (before QF)
5. Davydenko - 325
6. Gonzalez - 293
7. Ljubicic - 280
8. Youzhny - 249

Davydenko's 170 of 325 points came at Grand Slams, 83 points at Masters Series and only 72 points - from International Series tournaments. For comparison: last year Davydenko earned 171 Race points at smaller events. So he still has a lot of points to earn at MM tournaments after Wimbledon.

end of 07 yes
end of 08 no chance

:lol: Like you know shit. People were saying Davydenko would fall out of the top ten the last two years and it still hasn't happened.

07-21-2007, 12:34 PM
Davydenko will definitely remain in Top 5 if not higher. I don't know if he'll win a Slam, but at one point in his career before he's 30, I think he'll at least reach a Slam final. And if he comes across Federer again in the semifinals of Roland Garros, I think if Davydenko plays it right, he can defeat Federer. But Federer does have that mental edge. I'm a fan of Davydenko, I can't deny that and I think he's tough lil guy. :worship: He gets my full respect. His match against Nadal in Rome was pretty exhilirating and a lesson in the art of stamina.

i dunno hes got a decent chance

07-21-2007, 01:57 PM
It depends on how much he wants it. He hss his chance for it.

07-21-2007, 04:34 PM
Kolya still has a hunger for tennis. Plus, if he would keep playing 30 tournaments a year there is definitely a chance to be a top 5 player ;)

Yeah hopefully and obviously.

07-21-2007, 04:52 PM
