Who can get back into the top 100?

Once upon a time they were in the top 100 but now are ranked outside the top 150. Who out of those listed above will make it back inside the top 100 before they finish their careers.

Dancevic will

Out of those, Laver.

I'm going with one not here, Juan Martin Del Potro (currently #259). He'll rise up back to the top 5 by the end of 2011 with only 180 points to defend in all of 2011 (4th round of the AO from 2010). Rogie, Rafa, JMDP, Murray, and Chokovic, not necessarily in that order, but those will be the top 5 guys. Guys like Sodie, Berdych, Ferrer, Tsonga, and another guy will be 6-10 in the world. JMDP is a great player, but injuries (especially to the wrist) will prove to be his downfall, that and like Davy his utter ineptitude on grass.

Marco definitely win, and so will the other player from the 2010 Wimbledon epic. They both had strong end of the seasons and are healthy and don't have much to defend early. Outside of those two, MVA will have chances, Dancevic may possibly have chances, and Minar may have chances. The rest are a no IMO.

How can one make this thread, though, and forget the two brightest and biggest stars who are in this group:

KING HERNANDEZ Y NICOLAS MASSU! Both will be back in top 100 in 2011.

I'm not sure about any of them. :sad:

Navarro's general level was more top 150 anyway, as with Capdeville, Levine and Koellerer. Dancevic belongs at a similar level, but has wretched luck with injuries. I'm not sure whether Vliegen's body will take him back to the top 100...the signs were not good at the US Open, and mobility has never been his strong point anyway, due to his height. I'd also question Vassallo's fitness, and ability to win enough successive matches in challengers next year to make it all the way back.

I expected a little more of Ivo Minar after his Davis Cup heroics last summer. Generally he is too inconsistent to be much more than a threat anyway.

Gicquel is often underrated, and certainly is dangerous indoors...but his standard since the injuries hasn't been the same, and age and stamina aren't in his favour. I believe that he also has a young family, so it wouldn't surprise me if he retires at some stage next season (maybe French indoor events next October).

I think only Dancevic.

Rod Laver is most consistent and talented from this bunch of people. The rest are mugs and chokers, so my vote goes to the Aussie.

Dancević, Vliegen and Navarro
