The top 5 in three years

Spanish finest tennis commentator Tomas Carbonell was asked the other day which players he saw in the Top 5 in three years. He was sure about Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, unsure about Del Potro and he bet for Gulbis as the new power. He left Federer out. I wonder what are your bets on this? and why? Mine:

Top 5
Nadal
Djokovic
Murray
Berdych
Tomic

1. Del Potro
2. Murray
3. Djokovic
4. Querrey
5. Nadal

Too soon for guys like Tomic, Bhambri, Krajinovic, and Harrison to step up, but they'll definately be knocking on the door. I tend to think that Fed will still be competitive/dangerous but not a regular threat. I was actually hesitant to put Nadal in there because there's a good chance he'll be injured

No way in 2007 could I have predicted Soderling's rise to the top 5. So this is a complete stab in the dark but my guess is:

1) Nadal
2) Djokovic
3) Murray
4) Del Potro
5) Young player currently not in the top 10 (Cilic and Gulbis look like the strongest contenders, I don't think Bellucci has the game to take him to the top 5, I'm not convinced Dolgopolov / Young can rise to this level within 3 years, and players like Tomic / Krajinovic / Bhambri / Dimitrov will look to make their move up the rankings)

Fed will still be here in 3 years time I think, hanging around number 6 or 7.

I don't mind him anymore, but I don't see him in the top 5 in three years.
Top 10 most definately, though.

Many people are confident about Del Potro's future, but I'm uncertain he will comeback the same guy after his injury. Obviously the guy has got the talent and power to be a serious contender for slams, but still I don't think he will be a force in the next year, he's been out of competition for too long. I hope I'm wrong.

It happened early on in his career; I think he'll be okay.

5th Player I dunno

I'm fairly confident those 4 will be there if they can stay fit.
Pretty sure Federer will drop down the rankings by then too as he will be 32.

With no teenagers in top 100 I don't see major change at the top soon.

Too far out to guess, some kid who's 15/16 now could bloom and be winning masters or even slams in 5yrs.

4 different slam champions and sort of transitional era, but it will be looked back at fondly in 10 years :p

In an attempt to increase the popularity with the casual fan, the "complicated" (and patently unfair) rankings system will be abolished within 3 years in favor of fan voting.

I predict that the weekly ratings show (hosted by Simon Cowell) will be a consistent top 5 rated show.

Murray (No bias.. well a little.)
Nadal
Virtually unknown youngster (may become known next year)
Cilic (I see him improving boundlessly in the next few years)
Del potro (Injuries may plague his chances to go any further up)

One thing I'm certain of is the Murray-Nadal rivalry (Mudal?) will be in full flow in 3 years. It will be the main rivalry after Fedal runs its course. Fed should be 6th or 7th.

Rafa Nadal (27)
Andy Murray (26)
Juan Martin Del Potro (25)
Mr X (less than 22) (a super clay player which could rival Nadal on some occasions)
Kei Nishikori (24)


& regular top 10: Dolgopolov (24), Querrey (26), Djokovic (26), Gasquet (27), Almagro (28), Bagdhatis (28), Cilic (25), Gulbis (25) Berdych (28)
