Top 10: Fewest wins in a calendar year

With Nalbandian jumping at least to #6 next Monday I wondered which player finished a year inside the top 10 with the fewest wins. Nalbandian with 40 wins and Baggy with only 37 are this years contenders.
And who qualified directly for the YEC with the fewest matches?
It is truly amazing that Nalbandian is ranked #3 with half as many wins as Roger, a true testament to his talent.

Well, Nalbandian played fairly well early in the year. Semi final appearances in 2 Grand Slams and in 2 Masters Series and also a win in Estoril.

dóh..Fed also has double the amount of points you know...Nalbandian actually did something in the big tourneys, whereas all those wannabe top 10 players can only play MM so need to ahve loads more wins to come even near Nalby in points.

Nalbandian is at number 3 largely down to some good performances at big tournaments this year (semi-final in Austrlian Open, Miami, Rome, Roland Garros and now Madrid) but is also very high due to the masters Cup win. Should he fail to defend that his ranking is bound to fall. Take those Masters Cup points off and he falls to sixth with Robredo, Blake, Berdych, Baghdatis and Gonzalez not far off.
