This is a multiple choice poll.

By cracking the top 100 I mean entering it, but not necessarily finishing the year there.

All the listed players are currently ranked between 101-200, were born in 1985 or later, and obviously have never been ranked in the top 100 before.

Below is the updated list of players who have done it so far in 2007, players that were on the poll are in bold.

Player Country Date Career-high Year-End

Sam Querrey USA 29-jan 47 63
Diego Hartfield ARG 26-feb 73 89

Alexander Peya AUT 05-mar 92 187
Chris Guccione AUS 02-apr 88 91

Werner Eschauer AUT 09-apr 52 66
Simone Bolleli ITA 30-apr 65 67
Ivan Navarro Pastor ESP 11-jun 90 124

Bozoljac is not good enough.
Bolelli might.
Guccione might too, if he keeps his end-of-year form :o
Gil, not good enough.
Granollers-Pujol hmm, it actually is possible, but not next year.

bozoljac might cos he has a big serve, but i doubt he will stay there.
bolelli i think will, he is a good young player.
querrey will get wildcards into every event in the USA, maybe even some wta events as well, so he will make it.
gulbis will probably play and win challengers and make it that way.
zverev the same.
guccione definitely not.
gil not yet
pujol no way.
haase i don't think is that good and will not get exposure through wildcards, etc.
cilic maybe, but i thikn he is overrated

Aren't you the same guy who said that Querrey would be easily defeated in the first round at the Australian Open? Didn't you also say that Gustavo Kuerten should have gotten the WC over Querrey (ridiculous for multiple reasons)? I don't think you should be patting yourself on the back, particularly in light of the fact that you implied that it would take many USTA WCs for Querrey to reach the top 100, when in actuality it only took one (a WC which he proved very worthy of). He will likely finish the year well inside the top 100, and it won't be long before he doesn't need WCs (in fact, he was a direct entry into Delray Beach this week, where he easily won his MDE match).

The question was, 'which of the players listed will enter the top 100 this year?' Your answer: "Querrey probably will because he'll get something like 10-30 WC from the USTA." That statement clearly suggested that Querrey would enter the top 100 only, or primarily, because of many future wild cards. Nothing was said about past wild cards. If your contention is that you meant to say that he will enter the top 100 because of past wild cards, well, that doesn't make sense either in the context of this thread since each player's beginning ranking was a given. The question wasn't, 'how did each player obtain their current ranking?' If you hadn't "tipped your cap," I wouldn't have said anything. But you did, so I did.

About those previous wild cards. Yes, he did receive many WCs last summer, but you don't get very far just by receiving wild cards. You have to do something with them, and he did, which prompted additional wild cards. He also did extremely well on the Challenger circuit, where he won three tournaments and reached the semis of another high-money Challenger. So he certainly earned a lot of points outside of the ATP events. Considering that, it was only a matter of time before he reached the top 100, wild cards or no wild cards. He clearly has game.

Speaking of jokes, how did that Australian Open prediction work out for you? I seem to recall you saying that he would get beat in the first round, 'even by a clay-clourt specialist.' Yep, nice call.

Let me ask you, should Jimmy Connors receive a WC if he decides that he wants to come out of retirement and play one last tournament? After all, he won eight Grand Slam titles. Surely he's more deserving than Kuerten, right? Or maybe current level of performance/the ability to win matches should have something to do with it. And maybe age and potential should have something do with it as well. Querrey surpasses Kuerten in both areas. Kuerten's titles at the French Open are largely irrelevant as it pertains to worthiness of receiving a WC at the AO.

And how about this for a concept? Wild cards are not necessarily intended for the most "deserving" player. That's why they have their name. Even if Kuerten was by most measures the most deserving player (and he wasn't), it would not be wrong or unfair for him not to receive a wild card.

Furthermore, you singled out Querrey when complaining about Kuerten not getting a WC. Why? Querrey had one of the highest rankings among the wild cards (if not the highest). He is also the youngest and arguably the most talented. It hardly seems reasonable to single him out.

I surely hope that you scream at the top of your lungs when Brazil hands out wild cards to lowly ranked players instead of far, far, FAR more deserving players. Because if you don't, one might consider it an example of blatant hypocrisy.

I don't care about how deserving you think Querrey is, but I'm sure he wouldn't be in the top 100 now if he haven't gotten 1000000 WCs last year.

Tennis Australia does have an agreement with the USTA. I hadn't complained about the others purely because yes, Tennis Australia should support their own players. Hadn't they, do you really think he would get anything? I can complain anyway, as this Querrey guy means nothing to tennis and hasn't accomplished nothing worth of great praise.

And I used Kuerten just as an example. Any multiple slam winner should be a priority to get WCs instead of foreigners.

And about my prediction, yes, Acasuso should have won, but losing to Boredo isn't something to be proud anyway.

And I'm sure the USTA would even give the #1 seed if Connors wanted to come back and play. Don't be fooled.

I don't care about how deserving you think Querrey is

Right, all you care about is that your guy didn't get a wild card, and you were going to complain about it regardless. Problem is, you essentially based your complaint on the premise that Kuerten was more deserving, which doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

, but I'm sure he wouldn't be in the top 100 now if he haven't gotten 1000000 WCs last year.

Probably, but not necessarily. He likely would have played more Challengers, where he was racking up a lot of points. He might have achieved a similar ranking anyway. But it's beside the point of this discussion (which I think I sufficiently covered earlier).

Tennis Australia does have an agreement with the USTA. I hadn't complained about the others purely because yes, Tennis Australia should support their own players.

This doesn't add up. You didn't complain about the Australian players because Australia was merely supporting their own players? What do you think the USTA was doing?!? And what about the French wild card?

Hadn't they, do you really think he would get anything?

What? Are you saying that Australia was justified in giving WCs to their players because they have fewer tournaments than the U.S.? Do you believe that the USTA should have decided not to support one of their players because they have the opportunity to do so in other tournaments? That would be a strange argument, but even if you believe that, it's hard to argue that Kuerten should have been the first one in line to get the WC

I can complain anyway, as this Querrey guy means nothing to tennis and hasn't accomplished nothing worth of great praise.

Of course you can complain, regardless of how good or bad Querrey is. And I can point out how misguided your complaints are when they don't have merit.

And I used Kuerten just as an example. Any multiple slam winner should be a priority to get WCs instead of foreigners.

It was the USTA's wild card, not Australia's. So it wasn't going to a foreigner from the perspective of the USTA. Was Australia wrong for giving its WC to an Australian at the U.S. Open?

Aging multiple slam winners who have barely played in the last year, who haven't been in the top 200 since the summer of '05, and who have suspect hard court skills these days have no great claim to a WC over a young, up and coming player ranked #130 with a game well suited to hard courts. Not that it matters. Those who possess the WCs are under no obligation to give them to certain type of players.

And about my prediction, yes, Acasuso should have won, but losing to Boredo isn't something to be proud anyway.

Yes, losing to the #7 player in the world in four sets is an embarrassment. Kuerten would have blown him off the court, I'm sure. "Boredo" just happened to give Federer as tough a match as anybody he faced.

And I'm sure the USTA would even give the #1 seed if Connors wanted to come back and play. Don't be fooled.

No they wouldn't, but that wasn't the question. The question was, should he get one?

Two players appear in the top 100 for the first time this week. Gulbis, who was on the poll, climbed 27 spots after winning the Besanšon challenger to appear at 99. Hartfield wasn't on the poll because of the age limit, but also managed to crack it by reaching the SF of the Buenos Aires tournament. He appears at 93 this week.

Congrats to both.

Chris "the Gooch" Guccione has at last cracked the top 100 after reaching the QF of the challenger event in Mexico City last week. Amusingly enough, the big serving Aussie was the rare case of a player who had already an ATP final under his belt (Adelaide in January) but still hadn't managed to make it to ATP level. He appears at 98 this week. The Aussie fans finally have someone to keep Hewitt company in the top 100. :p

The other top 100 rookie this week is the Italian Stefano Galvani, whose ranking benefited from a title in the Rabat challenger in Morocco two weeks ago (coming on in the rankings only now because of the Miami TMS). Galvani follows the examples of fellow countrymen Sanguinetti, Bracciali and Di Mauro and is now enjoying his peak at 29, an age where most players are already facing a downfall or considering retirement. Galvani debuts in the top 100 at #99.

Cilic will be in the top 100 next week, Luczak needs to reach the final of the challenger he is playing this week to make it. Tsonga will only be at 113... Bogdanovic is closer to the top 100 at 110

I made a slight mistake on the calculations, so in fact Cilic is not certain to be in the top 100 next week. He currently sits at number 100, but if Luczak wins the challenger, then he will end the week in the top 100.

Either way, one of Cilic/Luczak will make their first appearance in the top 100 next week

Both Cilic and Guzman start the week in the top 100 though, and Berrer (101), Brezeczki (104) and Bogdanovic (107) could possibly join them this week

Berrer overtakes them both tomorrow if he beats Hartfield, Brezezcki needs to reach the final in Braunschwieg, and Bogdanovic needs to make the semi finals of Nottingham to make the top 100

Time for another update on this thread. Juan Pablo Brzezicki cracked the top 100 this week, and Argentina is for now the country with the most newcomers in the top 100 in 2007 (with three).

Most people will recall Brzezicki from his third round performance at Roland Garros this year, but the fact is that he's been around for a long time and even got offered the chance to play Davis Cup for Poland a couple of years ago, though he decided to stick with the Argentinian flag.

Yes, Capdeville the renegate Chilean is in, he had come short many times before, but, unlike his countryman Adrian Garcia, this week he finally reached the mark. Massu better beware or he will be the Chilean no. 3 soon enough.

Dudi Sela who was one of the most bandwagoned players in the last few weeks also broke into the top 100 after a strong showing in Tokyo, appearing at #92.

right, Adrian was #102 in 2004 :sad: he was close, Cap:devil:le did it a true miracle reaching the top 100, never here in Chile thought that he can reach this spot, im very happy for him :yeah:

Sela was so lucky, winning 2 matches by retire :o, but i think he can be top 50 or maybe better

The year is over so I've done a final update and included the career-high and year-end rankings for each listed player.

Out of the players listed on the poll, only Gil, Granollers-Pujol and Bozoljac (ironically clocking in at 101 earlier in January) couldn't crack the top 100 in 2007.

Oldest player to do it was Eschauer, youngest was Young.

Best career-high and year-end rankings were both from Tsonga (43).

Countries with the most "crackers" were Italy and Argentina, with three each.
