Which of these players will NOT be in the top 10 at the end of 2006

Any reason why not?

I think Agassi's body my struggle to play enough tournaments and Davydenko will be edged out by players such as Marat Safin and Richard Gasquet.

Davydenko, Ljubicic, Gaudio

The only one I voted for is Agassi and not for the lack of talent or ability. I think his body will let him down. I hope I am wrong.

Except for Rogelio and Rafa, the others have equal chances of remaining or leaving. :)

Federer :nerner:

I don't think Davydenko will be in the top ten. I would also expect Gaudio to drop a few places too.

Although, as Safin's season showed, serious injury could lead to any of these players dropping out of the top ten.

None of the dirtballers, I don't see how they can possibly remain in the Top 10, Coria is the only one with a chance. Let's see, hm, Ljubicic will end up in the 25 - 30 range.

Is Nadal a dirtballer? :confused:
We all know you`re refering to Gaudio (and Davydenko??) ;) :rolleyes: , but you`re talking about Nadal and Nalbandian too? :confused:

Davydenko - may struggle mentally with being a top 10 player

Agassi - won't play enough events

Ljubicic - exhausted from his efforts this year including Davis Cup still to come. The guy will be shattered.

I cannot believe you voted for Nalbandian because he is, according to you, solely good on 'dirt'. Have you paid attention to tennis at all lately?

:lol: I didn´t notice the poll was a public one!! Anyway.... I think I`m starting to undertand the concept "dirtballer".... not good serve?? :confused: :o :p
Oh! wait.... Puerta and Acasuso have got a pretty decent serves.... they are dirtballers, right? :scratch:

Whatever.... :rolleyes:

Could somebody please define "dirtballer". Is it just a silly term used by a number of posters.

Alright you caught me, I voted for everyone that will certainly be in the top ten next year...just to be a dick..haha

Agassi - it will depend on the tournaments he'll play. Personally, I hope he'll be in the top 10

Gaudio - even if I like him

Coria

Lee
11-23-2005, 05:13 PM
Agassi - his age will finally catch up
Davydenko - like Jiri Novak in 2002, Rainer Schuettler in 2003 and Tim Henman in 2004.
Ljubicic - his big mouth catch up with him ;)

LaTenista
11-23-2005, 05:20 PM
Coria - serve is biggest issue right now

Ljubicic - Schuettler syndrome I'm afraid / he capitalized on injury and absence of others this year

Davydenko - He'll burn out before RG 2006

Gaudio - mental

Hewitt - baby/family may mean he'll play even less tennis than this year :tape:

Agassi, think physical condition is a main obstacle,and Coria is a good nominee too concerning this field .

I agree, also Gaudio and Coria. I think they both have to really excell in the Clay court this next year to have any chance and i think coria especially has had a bit of a dip in form.

Davydenko,Agassi,Gaudio. There will be strong players coming up and they seem to be the weaker ones in there

11-23-2005, 11:17 PM
Roddick, Hewitt, Ljubicic and AGASSI have no hope.

Gaudio is number two or three in the world on clay. I won't be surprised if he wins 5 clay tournaments again next year.

Davydenko
Nalbandian
Agassi
Coria
Ljubicic
Gaudio

None are definites just think that any or all of these 6 could so I voted for all of them. There are a couple there that I hope don't... then again, there are a couple I really hope DO fall out.

he is a good player but does not belong among the best. there are better players than him with a lower ranking.

Nadal, Coria, Gaudio and maybe Davydenko

I think Hewitt is very unlikely to drop out of the top ten, and you can add Roddick and Nalbandian to that list as well.

But Hewitt is too consistent in the tournements he does play in, which makes it unlikey that he will drop out of the top 10, unless he misses a couple of slams.

Agassi and Ljubicic

Ljubo and Davydenko.

I know lots of people are voting for Gaudio, but he will certainly do better at the slams than he did in 05.

well you can't blame people for betting on the odds. besides, upsets happen all the time.

example, who would've thought that marat safin would lose to johansson in the AO final?

or who would've thought hewitt would bow out in the first round of wimbledon 2003?

the point is, upsets would happen even to the most overwhelming favorites...

if you add federer, nadal, hewitt, roddick you will be more secure ;)

A year on we finally know:

Gaudio, considered most likely, and Agassi, considered 3rd mostly, both dropped from their top 10 positions.

Davydenko and Ljubicic managed to surprise most. They remained top 10 and improved their respective positions it seems.

Why did so many underestimate particularly Davydenko and Ljubicic?
