The ATP Top 10: Who's Out Next Year and Who's In?

...and who's Number 1?

The Current rankings:

1 Nadal, Rafael (ESP)
2 Federer, Roger (SUI)
3 Djokovic, Novak (SRB)
4 Murray, Andy (GBR)
5 Soderling, Robin (SWE)
6 Davydenko, Nikolay (RUS)
7 Berdych, Tomas (CZE)
8 Verdasco, Fernando (ESP)
9 Roddick, Andy (USA)
10 Del Potro, Juan Martin (ARG)

Someone's gotta move, so I say Verdasco and Roddick take a fall and maybe Davydenko. Cilic and Baghdatis move up, and Fish or Querrey if Davydenko drops out.

All of them drop out.

People have been predicting Davydenko falling out of the top ten as early as 2007. Not to be.
Maybe Verdasco.
It might be easier to look at who might be able to break into the top ten.

Nadal will be #1 for awhile, Fed can take it back at the end of Wimby if he still has gas left in the tank. :)

del potro will fall under 30° losing 2000 points next week, and its hard that he returns in the top 10 next year i think

probably roddick and verdasco will fall too, ferrer will return in the top 10

I'm not worried at all about Potro making it back into the top ten.
So I have to disagree.
Another thing about Potro, he never reached his potential yet in some areas.
He can work on court coverage which is good already.
He'll get stronger, he's somewhat lanky still which is normal for someone his age.
His mental game is strong, he just plays and seemingly doesn't worry about who he's playing and where.
I'm very interested in his progress, one of my favorites. :cool:

Federer has no chance.

I predict him out of the top 12 by WTF 2011. I mean come on, this guy is a joke. People really need to stop cheering for him when its obvious he's teetering on the edge of oblivion every match against unranked mugs like falla or Fish. The young players is the future.

I believe federer will reach number 1 once again for atleast a week then his fall into the oblivion will begin.

:haha: :haha:

yeah, the generation of youngsters that rule the ATP tour, where there aren't players under 21 in the top 100 :spit:

Which young players? Quite the contrast is true. 2010 has seen a revival of thw "old boys".

The youngest finalists in a Masters event this year were Murray and Nadal, whom I consider well established players.

All the others - Ljubicic, Roddick, Berdych, Ferrer, Federer, Fish are not young anymore.

I predict you will still be this bitter and full of shit by WTF 2011. I mean come on, you are a joke. People really need to stop giving you a break when its obvious you're teetering on the edge of sanity every post you make. Normal well-adjusted tennis-fans are the future.

Fish will be in the top 10 when he'll learn how to play on clay court

Everyone as tennis is getting canceled next year.

You did not specify at which time next year!
I predict Verdasco, Roddick, Del Potro and Davydenko to be out of the top ten at some point next year.

If Nadal defends all his clay points next year, then it will take a huge effort from Federer or anyone else to take him away from number 1.

He won't! This year during the clay court season all the other top players were off form AND Nadal had cupcake draws in most tournaments... This is NOT going to happen again next year;)

Nadal won't defend all his clay points with davydenko, del potro, nalbandian and novak to a certain extent all back.

Poor Delpo, he will be around 35 after USO...it'll be difficult to go back after that

As much as it pains me to say it as a fan, probably Verdasco unless he can get his act together.

Roddick and Davydenko as well.

River
08-24-2010, 02:16 PM
Didn't Roddick just re-enter the Top 10 this week?

And everyone is putting him in league with Verdasco and Davy? Man, what's a guy gotta do to get some credit here, lol

there is no way davydenko is staying in the top 10 this year with all the points he's set to lose and he will start next year outside the top 10 aswell, whether or not he can get back in i dont know...depends on how far down he falls

i also think robin will fall out of the top 10 next year and verdasco

I think tsonga, and cilic will get back in.

henke007
08-24-2010, 02:58 PM
Why would Robin fall out of the top 10?? I agree he has a lot to defend in the spring but can he get his act together and do some damage at the AO where he only defends 10 points he will stay. He also don't defend much at MC,Rom and Madrid leading up to FO!! i also see him gaining ground at Shanghai,Paris and maybe in London before years end!!

Can he start not getting the worst draws of top 8 all the time i see him breaking the top 4 soon!!

Cilic won't even be in the top 20 after AO!!

At the start of next year, Delpo will have NO points to defend after the AO and only 180 then. Plus of course any points he earns on his comeback. So, unless the injury had totally ruined his abilities and confidence, he should rocket up the rankings next year.

Federer i think will be again No.1 after Wimbledon 2011. Rafa needs to have again perfetct clay season and Roger has opportunity to take many points in RG- final could be and Wimbledon he can also win he will go on first place, Rafa will be second, Murray 3rd. Djokovic sometimes play horrible - maybe fall from top five. Del Potro after injury will have it really hard to go back to top 10. Verdasco will fall out probably too and IN top 10 i can see Cilic, Gulbis, Ferrer

Fish is on a streak and now people think he's a permanent top 10. :rolleyes:
Only consistent players make the top 10.

This is a trivial prediction, as he will fall deeply this year.

del potro will be number one

Navratil
08-25-2010, 09:20 AM
It'll be hard for del Potro to come back.

I can imagine that one of the US-stars - Fish, Isner or Querrey - break into the top ten. At least for a short time.

I should have specified. I mean who will be in the Top 10 at year's end?

As for Fish solidifying a Top 10 ranking when he learns how to play the clay... Roddick can't play the clay and he was in the Top 10 for years.

It does make sense to focus on who will enter the top 10, but if someone enters, someone else has to leave. I believe Roddick is on his last legs. He can't remain consistent throughout a season.

Fish is playing well, but he's a mirage. It's too little, too late.

Federer is proud and the league is pretty weak. If he slid out of the top 12 that fast, he'd retire.

Isner looks good if you don't look too close. Break his game down and all he has is a big serve and a height advantage.
