vote :D

.. and who will make it to the top 10?

Davydenko and Agassi are doubtful.

Nalbandian is unfortunately just a black-box....Hmm Coria should be able to grab enough points on clay, as always. Ljubicic raised his level, I hope he's not a one-season-wonder. The rest should stay in anyway, with Safin coming back! :bolt:

Davydenko, Agassi and Ljubicic will be out this year....

12-28-2005, 01:04 PM
I'm pretty much sure that Roger and Rafa have no chance of getting out of the top 10....and I don't think that Andy or Lleyton will fall out either unless they have a disastrous season. On the other side, I am almost sure that Davydenko will be out of the top 10 even before the French Open. The Argentinos have always been very close to first ten spots, sometimes on 11, other time on 12 so I don't think they'll crash out too badly. Agassi is another player worth following in 2006 in what his ranking is concerned. If injuries keep on bugging him, his ranking might seriously decrease. I'm not sure about Ljubo either....if he continues the great shape he had in the fall of 2005 he will mantain his top 10 spot.

The top four are a safe bet to stay in the top ten. I think Coria and Gaudio will slip but that mainly depends on how the clay court season goes for them.

I agree! :yeah:

I think Davydenko will surprise everyone and consolidate his postion in 2006 - but Agassi will definately fall in my opinion - and possiby Coria if he doesn't sort out his serve and his nerve next season. Barring injuries I cannot see either Federer, Nadal, Roddick or Hewitt losing their postions at all.

If injuries hold up, Agassi will remain in Top 10. However if injuries happen, Agassi will tumble out of the Top 10 and into retirement. If Andre cannot stay in Top 10 he will retire!

The top 4 for sure without injury. Also David can make it.

12-28-2005, 11:44 PM
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Roger will most definetely be in the top 10. I know its a risky proposition but its one my heart tells me I have to make.

12-29-2005, 03:38 AM
Everyone except: Agassi, Davydenko, Gaudio.
Possibly Ljubicic.

The top Four are safe. It really will boils down to the clay-court season. Whoever can have a consistent clay-court season will have a chance to maintain their top 10. Agassi will totally miss the red dust and concentrate his bid for wimbledon.

I hope Juan Carlos Ferrero will break into the top 10 again where he truly belongs.

Andre Agassi will only have to lose points from QF Houston and SF Rome on Clay so shouldnt effect his ranking too much!

12-29-2005, 12:38 PM
I agree that the top 4 will stay the same if there isn't some kind of unpredictable happening.
I also think (and hope) Gaudio will stay in the Top 10.

It will become hard for Agassi, Davydenko and Coria.

12-29-2005, 02:32 PM
sure: Federer, Nadal, roddick
nearly safe: hewitt, nalbandian, Ljubicic
see you go: davy, coria, agassi
definitly out: Gaudio

Aside from Agassi, Ljubicic and possibly Nalbandian (I've always had a real problem figuring this guy out), I voted for Davydenko. I'll call it "The Kafelnikov Factor." He, like Kafelnikov (and Mauresmo on the women's side), is able to play in so many events because he's not prone to injury. Being ranked year-end #5 with 30 losses is testament to his durability.

I figure the three openings will be filled by Gonzalez, Nieminen and either Gasquet or Berdych.
