Re: Two ATP rivalries could flourish in 2014 - ESPN.com
Great article from ESPN. I have the feeling that they will meet somewhere in the 2014 season. The first rivalry will be between players that are aiming to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals. This year Wawrinka improved the level of his game and evolved mentally as well, while Tsonga had problems with injuries and didn't find the rythm that he needed. Next year Tsonga will probably have a better season and then Wawrinka will need to defend his new position in the rankings. The second one is about two players that are aiming to end the year in the TOP20 of the ATP rankings. Both are expected to reach the TOP10 in the future, so they should have good runs in some ATP 250 or ATP 500 tournaments and maybe meet each other if we are lucky. It will be a very interesting and beautiful match.
