Tsonga has to WIN a hard court title before he can make the top 5 at the very least.

I think Nadal totally belongs here. I really, really hate him but sadly he is more than just a clay courter as people would like to believe.
Tsonga's name shouldn't even be up for consideration. A fluke run, even if it happens at a big event shouldn't be enough without something to back it up.

This is MTF sacrilege, but Roddick belongs on this list. You may hate him, and his results on clay are miserable, but there is no way he is NOT a top 5 hard court player at the moment.

Don't you have something less boring to make than surface rankings on a tennis forum?

You must be joking. :confused: How can you put Tsonga on a TOP 5 ? Just because of his sensational AO performance ? You would be a good journalist.
For me :

1) Federer,
2) Djokovic,
3) Murray,
4) Youzhny,
5) Ferrer.

not murray... at least not yet...

if nadal (who has 3 HC TMS titles, 2 runner-up) is not, why on earth does murray (who never reaches any HC TMS final, or go beyond 4th round in HC slam) belongs to the top5?????

I been love Nalbandian for many years. I enjoy his tennis every time. But He is not consistent, He alway up and down

I don't think that he is a top 5 today

No.

Blake. I love to see he play every time, I love to see he win every Match.

but He is not a Top 5 this time. Many young guys are growing, and getting better every day

Murray, Gasquet, Youzhny, Tsonga, Roddick and Baghdatis, also Berdych

Those guys all much younger than James. He is getting older. He may be no longer Top 5 Hard Courter

Roddick and Youzhny are not in the same age bracket as Murray, Nole, Gasquet, Rafa etc.

I think it currently has to be:

1. Federer
2. Djokovic
3. Ferrer
4. Nadal
5. Blake
Rounding out Top 10: Roddick/Youzhny/Murray/Davydenko/Nalbandian, depending on form.

Tonight's quarters and the remainder of AO '08 will explain a bunch about #2/#3 and #4/#5, though I think Djokovic is significantly better up to this point. For me, Ferrer is clearly #3. Ferrer beat Nalbandian and Rafa at USO '07 and then Djokovic, Nadal, Roddick, and Gaquet at TMC '07. That he will again run into Djokovic/Federer at AO '08 is poor luck. If he was drawn into a half with Nadal and Davydenko in either of the last two slams, he would have probably been a hardcourt finalist at USO '07 or AO '08.

Nadal is incredibly consistent on all surfaces, but I think you have to look at the draws to really get an idea on how good Nadal is on hardcourt: Nadal played well in Paris and picked up 350, but he's had a cruise here to the semis. When he gets a tough opponent who can hit through the ball and not wilt mentally, like Ferrer (TMC '07, USO '07), Gonzalez (AO '07), Youzhny (Chennai '08, Dubai '07, USO '06), or Blake (TMC '06 and IW), he will lose more often than not. Even Simon and Niemenin had him on the ropes just recently, beating him off the ground with aggressive play, but again, Nadal's mental strength and composure proved to be the decisive factor as he waited them out, Niemenin imploding and Simon running out of gas.

If Blake could boost his points and avoid more difficult draws, he'd probably move up to #4. He had a bad early '07 at Miami and IW, but he played well in the summer hardcourt tournaments. In addition to this, he's been incredibly competitive at the last few hardcourt slams, running into Agassi at USO '05 Q, Federer USO '06 Q, Gonzalez AO '07 4th, that epic against Haas at USO '07 4th, and now again Federer at AO '08 Q.

The same could probably be said for Roddick, who'd be my #6, but I think his game is spiraling right now. After Roddick, I think there's a drop. Murray is probably #7, but he's been far too injured/inconsistent for me to confidently put him above Youzhny or Nalbandian, and I think his game is very susceptible to weaker players on hot streaks, Tsonga being the most recent example.

1. Federer
2. Nalbandian
3. Djokovic
4/5. Ferrer/Nadal

I agree. I´m convinced that Nalbandian just had a non lucky/concentred morning against Ferrero and nothing else.

Jeez, Tsonga has one good tournament and he's one of the top hard court players in the world??!? Talk about bandwagon.

Tsonga's top 5 overall, don't limit him just to hardcourt. I think we're going to finally see a frenchman win in paris!

I think this order is perfect. Ferrer has been consistent since USO last year so ranking between Nadal and Ferrer will can move around a bit. Murray hasn't done anything yet to be classified as a top 5 player on hard. Youzhny is inconsistent. I would put Roddick here as well. In general, I think he is a better hard court player than Blake
