1.J.Blake ( I honestly believe top 10 next year )

2.R.Gasquet (top 6 he has the all round game to dominate all year round!!)

3.N.Djokovic ( Injury free should be top 32 no problem)

4.A.Murray (Similar to Novak should be top 32 without to many problems)

5.M.Baghdatis ( I like the look of this guy another solid player in the making top 32 hopefully)

Nadal, and even Ljubicic have already made big impacts this year. Ljubicic can improve, if he becomes relevant in slams. Nadal can also improve, but it's the same to say that Federer, Roddick, Hewitt and/or Safin will be somewhat relevant during next season, it's almost a given (even if with Safin you never know).

Yes, I think all the mentioned above can and will cause a "big impact", except Youzhny. I mean, he probably should be ranked higher based solely on his tennis abilities and this season has been bad for him. Perhaps he can return to TOP20 next year and that already is a big impact.

I don't follow Juniors, but who's there to make an interesting "appearence" on ATP, like Murray did this year (well, and not too long ago - Nadal, Gasquet, Monfils, etc)?

Hm, and I hope Coria can show his best tennis again. But at this point, Ferrero is the most likely to make an impactant comeback.

I hope you're right on Koubek. So talented and so low in the rankings now. I don't follow him enough to know what's wrong except the suspension and lack of confidence, but I watched his match in Cincy, and with his skills can't understand the drop.

There are enough reasons, but he has also had injury problems, as for an impact well these are just the first 5 names I thought of.

what ljubicic does at AO, will key for the other 3 GS for him. at this point its just mental for him. he has the game to beat every player in 10.

Nadal... as he is going conquer the hardcourt as well as the clay....
Gasquet.... marching his way into top 5...
Murray... will be the new british no.1 and rise to top 20...

Ooohh...I forgot to mention Igor Andreev...I think he'll be in top 20 next year!

11-01-2005, 04:58 PM
Gasquet --moving to top five

Safin-- somewhat returning to form, but I would still be happier if he would have had an operation.

Berdych

PHM

Ljubicic

I think it will be of more interest to see the so called "usual suspects" decline.

OLD Agassi will really act his age (should have retired long ago) I know u r thinking he is still winning. But is tennis really ALL about winning?

Federer will NOT dominate.

Nadal will lose his edge (youthful exuberance can last so long). Clay courter, anyway.

I also expect Tursunov, Berlocq and Kunitsyn too improve a lot.

Gasquet if healthy will move to top 5. He will start the season strongly.

Murray will move to top 20

Djokovic will move in top 20 as well

Baghdatis in top 30.

And Del Potro as a real newcomer.

I can see Monfils struggling a bit in his second year and staying where he's now and I'm not sure about Berdych.

Assuming that this refers to new guys on the block:

Ginepri
Monfils
Ljubicic
Verdasco :rolleyes:
Ancic

I really think only my top three will be the ones making noise next year. The other two can if they become more consistent and confident. I left Blake out because I dont' see him being able to lift his game to the next level. If he does, it'll be a pleasant surprise.
