Default How Would The Rankings Look If Every Tournament Was On Grass?

How do you think things would be different if there were a lot more grass court tournaments or if every tournament was on grass speculatively?

I think Roddick would be top 5 and Djokovic probably down at 6-9.
Davydenko and Ferrer wouldn't be in the top 30.

Fish and Llodra could be in the 10-15 bracket maybe just breaking top 10.

I think some guys outside top 100 like Mahut and Kendrick might be about 30 in the rankings if the whole tour was on grass.

Also UK would probabky get a couple more top 100 players.

Default Re: How Would The Rankings Look If Every Tournament Was On Grass?

unfortunately, that green clay passes for grass these days

you get 2 dimensional pushers dominating at wimbledon, and not a S&Ver in the top 30

so the ranking wouldn't change too much

murray wouldn't do so well, neither would jokes

i'd expect roddick to be top 3 tho

federer would probably be unchanged

GRASS doesn't exist anymore. It´s disguised piggy clay.
