Assuming Hewitt remains number one who will be the number two? Posted it in this forum to keep away as many of the clowntards in GM as possible.

Will be interesting to see how Marinko copes with the pressure of defending the points he accummulated in 2010. It will be good to see him replace them before he has to actually defends them.
If Tomic can get through the Aussie Summer having defended the points he has from last summer then he will be perfectly placed for a rise in the rankings, if he ever gets on court regularly.
Chris Guccione is in a great position to advance, as is the Big Groth. Millman has a lot to defend and shin splint problems. Jonesie in same position as Tomic early in the year, with less points to defend, but really not many points mid year or in the last quarter.
My pick will be a big server - Gucc, Groth or Jones

I would like to say Luczak, but I'm not sure how his body will hold up with another year grinding on the challenger tour. I have been waiting for Ball to have his breakthrough, but it hasn't come yet... it is a matter of when/if this breakthrough happens, he's been sitting around the 150 mark for quite some time now... could it be his year in 2011? In my honest opinion I think Tomic is geared up for a breakthrough year... he has trained hard and doesn't have many points to defend, so if he can defend his points over the Aussie swing he has a good chance of quickly progressing through the rankings if he plays a full year on tour.
