Congrats Juan, it was expected after his results in Mumbai and Tokyo. I am glad to see Korolev also having a career high ranking, I now expect both of them to get direct entry into the Australian Open.

That's the goal and I think both Korolev and del Potro will be able to achieve direct entry to the AO , just a couple more good results should do that.

he's a bust, if he cant make it into the top 100 after some months on tour then he is a bust...

He is doing fine, he won a challenger at Lubbock after the US Open. His game is not as developed as Korolev or JMDP at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised if he broke into the top-100 after the US early hard court season next year.

Novak's reign was bound to end sooner or later but hey he is not that bad right now . I am guessing he will be the youngest in the top 50 and then top 10 far longer . Good luck to Juan Marin Del Potro and Eugeny Korolev :wavey:

And when Cilic reaches top 100 within some months he will be the youngest guy in top 100 . :shrug: . It's depends on when the player was born and not how precocious the player was when reached that group.

I don't see the point of posting that stat but posting for instance who were the most precocious players to reach the top 100 among active players :shrug:

1.Nadal : 16 years and 10 months
2.Gasquet : 17 y and 3 m
3.Hewitt : 17 y and 9 m
4.Del Potro : 18 y and 0 m
5.Federer and Djokovic : 18 y 1 m ( and the same days )
6.Safin : 18 y and 4 m
7.Murray: 18 y and 4 m
8.Berdych :18 y and 4 m
9.Acasuso : 18 y and 6 m
10.Korolev : 18 y and 6 m
11.Roddick : 18 y and 7 m


Congratulations for JMDP , anyway

Congrats JMDP :) As for his schedule josemanuel - well he was scheduled to play in the Vienna qualifiers this week but had to withdraw as he was still involved in Tokyo at the time. He is actually 20th Alternate for Madrid qualifying :rolleyes: which means his only realistic chance of playing there is if they give him a Quallies Wild Card. There are many rumours that he will indeed get this - but sadly in the end it will probably go to some unknown Spanish journeyman who will lose in the 1st round instead :devil: So his only definate ranking tournament this year now is the Copa Petrobas Challenger in Buenos Aires in November.

Anyway, good for JMDP :yeah:

:bigclap: JMDP!
This has been an excellent season for him so far-relatively speaking-. Hope it proves to be one the many turning points to come in his young career and keep moving up the rankings. Expecting him to enter the top-70 no later than the end of January, if he keeps up the good work. (137 points away from #70)

I think your list actually shows that reaching the top 100 young is a good indicator of strong future performance. Your list has 4 former (or current) number 1s, and I think all but Korolev and del Potro (for obvious reasons) have at least reached top 25 and most of them will go a lot higher - likely to number 1.

So based on this Del Potro has a 100% chance of reaching top 25 and about 50% chance of reaching number 1 :) :wavey:
