After 2007 US OPEN, ATP Rankings, Let me tell you TOP 10, why?

1. Rogerer He is alway here, but 2008 Ranking He will not be No. 1
2. Roddick (He is a kid, still take time to be No 1.)
3. Nadal Still good, but Andy is better
4. Blake He has to be Top 4
5. Berdych He is great
6. Andy Murray He support to be Top 10
7. Ljubicic Still great
8. Nalbandian Still great
9. Gonzalez big energy
10.Gasquet Amazing

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Andy Roddick will play very well in Red Clay, WHy? Reason
1. Jimmy
2. He is a good Red Clay, just don't want how to win in French Open.
3. Now it's a time to change his skill to get a Red Clay Master 2007
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nadal will keep play well, but He will accept Roddick to be No. 2
Reason, Roddick will receive more Ranking point from Red Clay
------------------------------------------------------------------------
James Blake, He is amazing, He should be Top 4 for sure. Reason
1. He is No. 2 in Hard courts
2. He will play better than Andy Roddick in Red Clay.
3. He is good in Glass.
so why He can't be Top 4.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Berdych, Gonzalez and Gasquet, Those 3 guys are really amazing, They all have chance to beat Roger in Hard courts.
If you are smart, You will know what I talking about.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Andy Murray, This guy is my favorite one, He could be another No 1 in next 4 years. Maybe after Roddick.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Ljubicic Still great
8. Nalbandian Still great
Of course, They will play well.
If Nalbandian play well, He can beat Roger 7 of 10 times.
Ivan is another guy, who can play very well
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tommy Haas, Also will come back to Top 10
But injury will keep make him down. So I don't pick him
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ancic
Baghdatis
Lleyton
THis 3 will also have chance to be Top 10
But they are not the guy, who are really amazing. Reason
Lleyton is too old, Not age, I means his tennis
Baghdatis is great player, but I don't think He keep in Top 10
Ancic, This guy is great, but still not enough to be Top 10
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have 4 guy are working out and looking for come back
1. Ferrero, Juan Carlos (ESP) He did show us he is back

2. Youzhny, Mikhail (RUS) He is ready to go,

3. Ginepri, Robby (USA) He find out a way to come back, Even better

4. Safin, Marat (RUS) He is wait for a run

Those 4 player will come back hugh. I think they will have a lot of chance to be Top 10

You may not agree with me, You will say Robby is hugh down,

Yeah, Robby is down hugh, So I pick him, That's a turn around point.
and accept he come back to top 20, No, no Top 20, If he ready to come back, He will be much much better than US OPEN semi Finaler

I've always wondered if Roddick could beat Nadal.... Roddick could one day find himself at #2 in the world, putting Roger in danger of facing Nadal before the finals at majors. If Roger goes down to Rafa, Roddick has a good chance at winning majors again.

If you are smart, You will know what I talking about.If you're smart, you know James and Andy don't belong anywhere near the the top 10.
Professional tennis has seriously gone in a fucked direction when my mom can hit a better slice backhand than the USO runner-up.

Do any of you even realize how blatantly talentless theses two players are?
There's only one logic, ass-kissing American commentators have totally rid the planet of all sensible judgement.

1. Nadal -- He Will play Finals at every Grand Slam

2. Federer -- He Will lose early in one Grand Slam and win "only" Wimbledon

3. Davydenko -- Will reach Roland Garros Final and play much far as allways

4. Gasquet -- Will reach a few Masters Finals and Semis at Grand Slams

5. Nieminen -- He will have finally the breakthrough year, far in all Slams and Masters

6. Nalbandian -- Solid performance through the year

7. Murray -- Brad Gilbert will learn him how to serve and he will reach Semis at many Masters

8. Blake -- Do well on hard courts, but few clay court season points to reach higher

9. Roddick -- Will suffer injuries and will fire Connors after Wimbledon

10. Pim-Pim -- Will make hell of a comeback and reach Semis on Aus Open with his Wild Card and to perform good through the year

Interesting list. It's good to see so many people thinking Murray will be up there next year.

I always keep dreaming :)

My list will be very unlikely to happened, but I think that Murray in few years can be a potential Grand Slam -winner.

He needs to work first with his fitness and to get some more pop with muscle and to develop his endurance capacity. Hopefully he will stay with Gilbert long time that we see some "two big wins in a row" results also at the Grand Slams. The Tactical Geniusses and talent -- would be nice to see my First British Wimbledon yet once in a lifetime.

Oh my God, this is just the biggest load of crap that I have seen here in a while and that actually means something. Where did you take these absolutely ridiculous, delusional and ludicrous stuff from?
Roddick becoming a red clay master? I understand that the last weeks have been very promising for him, however, he has not even beaten a top 10 opponent the whole year.
Stop idealizing the American players and give credit to Nadal, they are surely great but have not yet displayed ability that is comparable to Nadal's at all.

It might also be because of Gilbert? I might be wrong about this, but I see a lot of similarities between Murray and Roddick, with their results and success post and pre Gilbert. That's why I think Murray will do well.

beating roger doesn't hurt either.

I'm still wondering why people have Blake as Top 5 after a years time. Then again, that might be due to the convenient change to best of 3 set finals outside of slams.

I totally agree, he's had a great hard court season and has played well on grass this year. I think next year may be too soon for him to win a slam but maybe the year after that, but it depends on people like Federer.

I can't see why he can't beat him again, but it'll be tough. In phsycological terms, Murray beating Federer must have done Murray the world of good in terms of mentality for the beginning of next season and the rest of this season.

1. Federer
2. Nadal
3. Roddick
4. Nalbandian
5. Murray
6. Davydenko
7. Baghdatis
8. Blake
9. Gasquet
10. Ljubicic

I might have put Roddick over Nadal if he'd beaten him at the Open. At this point, because they haven't played in so long, it's hard to know who would win. If Roddick picks it up in the events he used to do well in, AO, TMS, and Wimbly, it'll be all gain in the rankings. this year he's likely going to end in the top 5, and everyone will agree that it's his worse year on tour to date.

Eh...I wouldn't read too much into that win Murray had over Roger. On paper a win is a win yes...but anyone who saw the match or heard about the match or whatever knows that Roger was far from playing his best tennis. I know it, Roger sure knows it and Andy, if he's smart, knows it as well. Yes he absolytely should be proud that he took advantage of the weak play from Roger and that he got the victory and he should use that confidence to his advantage. But it wouldn't do him any good to get too big of a head about it. Because if he goes into the next match against Roger thinking he can win it because of that match in Cincy he's going to get crushed in more ways than one.

Oh I completely agree. I just see a lot of potential in Murray and with BG as his coach...I'm not sure I'd bet against him. Top five may be saying too much though, haha

I don't even like him though...so hopefully he'll continue to get crushed :lol:

Apart from this "arse-clown" thread, I'd be rather interested to see some more Andy/Andy matchups in 2007, you know the ultimate battle of egotistical American pricks (the coaches, of course).

If this became a regular occurrence nobody would even be talking about Roger and Nadal anymore.

Jlee
09-16-2006, 06:48 PM
Blake is not good..he is terrible

Then how did he play that amazing match with Agassi at the Open last year and take a set off Federer this year?? Plus break into the top five after a horrible 2004?

I think he has talent, it's just mentally he's sometimes :cuckoo:

1. Federer - unless he takes a break from tennis or get injured
2. Nadal - with a big margin below Roger and ahead of 3rd
3. Roddick - not winning any Grand Slam, but having better year
4. Ancic - real fighter, getting to his first GS final at Wimbledon
5. Blake - inconsistent, but great in stretches
6. Davydenko - hardest worker on ATP
7. Baghdatis - will continue his progress
8. Gasquet - very good at both clay and hard
9. Djokovic - must work on hsi durability, but few can match his offensive game
10. Prakash Armitraj - too cool of a name not to include him.

lets see here...you're saying Blake his good because he choked vs old man and he took a set of Roger? Go see how many times Ljubicic pushed Roger to 3rd set TB or 7-5 last year...with this logic..Ivan is the real #3 :)

:scratch: The "kid" will be 25 next year. He's hardly a junior by tennis standards.

That old man happened to get to the USO final and challenge Roger, not to mention everything he's done in his career. I'm not saying that Blake is the real number 3, thus I did not provide justification for Ljubicic to be either :wavey:

Whoever is number three, is number three. Ljubicic deserves to be the number three right now. Do I think he's the third most talented player in the world? No...but that doesn't mean his results aren't the third best at the moment. I just don't feel they will stay that way.

I have Blake at 8 and Ljubicic at 10 on my list...they aren't that far from each other :p I'm allowed to put a little subjectivity in there ;)
