i guess people are getting bored about all the thread regarding nadal or federer...

nadal has secured has position as no.2 this year, unless he can take over federer... which... well, not impossible but no easy at all...

so now, it become more interesting to see who will end no.3...

the points between safin, hewitt and roddick are very close,

who do u think will be the no.3 end of this year?

i said roddick..mainly becos at the mo i fink lleyton's head is all clouded up wif love and babies on the way..and well with safin's knee injury-no1 reali knows yet how he will come back playing. Altho, that said-roddick will need to regain some confidence if he is gonna contend for a number 3 ranking.

I'd say Hewitt, because he has not played that much.

I said Hewitt, but it might be hard as he has a lot of points to defend, starting with the Cincy title (title of finalist someone please correct me) and finalist in the USO. So he better do well in these :angel:

I think safin will, but he does have Indoor TMS to defend, but that's it, correct?

Roddick because he has the least points to defend.

I think Federer and Nadal will be a close #1 & 2.

I think Roddick, Hewitt and Safin will be bunched at #3-5 -- all a sizeable gap behind Federer and Nadal.

Another big gap will separate these three from the remaining top 10.

Safin, even though he has to defend two masters!

I'm picking Hewitt, he's much more consistant then Andy this year, and I just seen a recent candid photo of Safin and he's ....a little overweight!

But honestly.. Scrap the rankings.. Whoever of Federer, Nadal and Safin wins US Open will be true #1 of this year.. The other of them who won a better Slam will be #2 and the last one will be real #3.. Meaning, no matter what, Federer is no lower than #2..

If neither one wins US Open then we'll talk about it later..;)

I wouldn't say that, what if Nadal, or Fed got injured or something, I wouldn't consider Safin number 1 and Safin is way too far behind to be considered better then Nadal or Fed this year! The best wins a lot of tounraments, not just 2 big ones!
