Default The Clay Court Rankings

So based on the clay results this year, how would you rate players in the top 5?

I have it:

1) Rafa
2) Novak
3) Murray
4) Federer
5) Soderling

So why Murray at #3? Because he had so many break chances against Rafa with one leg. I am sure he could have won a set or 2 if 100%.

Discuss.

Default Re: The Clay Court Rankings

Clay results wise I would agree Rafa is #1. Quality of play wise it is Djokovic at #1.

Novak loses that spot because he choked in the semis after 4 days off

Default Re: The Clay Court Rankings

It's a toughie this one. Do you mean the top 5 ranking players in order, or the top 5 players on clay of this season? (otherwise replace Ferrer with Soderling)

1 Rafa
2 Djokovic
3 Federer
4 Murray
5 Ferrer

Djokovic just, just above Federer. Although RG means almost everything in the clay season, winning 2 masters is a little too big to trade in for a FO final spot.

Don't you think Murray pushed Rafa harder though? I mean on one leg? He also got a set off him earlier. I think he was more impressive than Rog

Murray didn't push Rafa harder, and you can't use injuries as an excuse.

Even then, if this is a topic about results then Federer should be above Murray simply because he got to the final.

Default Re: The Clay Court Rankings

1 Rafa (Hard to argue against when he won the French)
2 Nole (Unbeatable and possibly struggled at RG due to having no match for 4 days)
3 Andy (SF MC, Rome and RG. Nearly beat Nole in Rome and ran Rafa close enough at RG with 1 leg)
4 Roger (Besides RG he didn't do anything worth mentioning)
5 Ferrer (Solid. Nobody else really did anything to trouble the top guys)
