Will Nadal Be The Next World #1 Or Will Someone Else Replace Federer?

Eventually Federer will lose his #1 ranking perhaps either in 2007 or 2008 and when that time comes do you think it's more likely that Nadal will still be hanging around just behind Federer to assume the top position or that by then another player will be ready to swoop in and take the #1 mantle such as a Andy Roddick, Marcos Baghdatis or even a Richard Gasquet.

Thanks.

The obligatory "Xristos" response.

With that done, my vote goes to Nadal.

Federer is improving rapidly to this day. And due to his style of play, even when his physical aspects have become wary, his results won't.

Players will come along with the ability to beat him. But none will have the sustained dominance and confidence on all surfaces to overtake no.1.
He will retire as the word. no.1

I think Federer can remain #1 for a long time yet. If he doesn't get sick, hurt, or tired of playing tennis. So with all the time that may pass until then it would be very hard to pick who will take over as #1.

I think Federer can hang on his no.1 position past 2008.

But definitely my vote goes to Nadal.

If anyone was to take it it would be Nadal. I would love to see Andy have that # 1 ranking again too and he could if he keeps playing the way he does. These 2 are the only ones I see taking it but it's going to take a long time...

Perish that thought!!!!!!!!!!
When it comes, noone from now ATP players will do it. But someone who are still 15 or 16 years old now.

I agree. Fed will not lose his #1 spot so soon, and Nadal's physic game cannot last to long...

So someone else will take that #1.

Nadal certainly deserves to be the next #1... but then again Vilas also deserved it in 1977;)

My two bob is this: Nadal has a very good chance of overtaking Federer in the next 2-3 years~~ doesn`t mean he`ll be Year End #1 though...
However if Nadal fails to nab #1 spot in the next 2-3 years then he may never get it:sad: :sad: ==>> then he`ll know how Vilas felt:eek:

Nadal will be the next no.1 most likely. Could be next year. :)




Hey, TennisGrandSlam, what you say? Nadal to whoop Federer next year and take over as no.1 or not? ;)
