Default 2013 Race To London: Your Predictions

Well, the last Slam of the season is over. The last biggest event left is the World Tour Finals, and seems some tight competition going on in the last 2 spots. What are your predictions on who are going to be the Final 8 that would challenge the best of the best of the year?

I think Djokovic or Murray.

Maybe Nadal this year have a huge chance..but is indoor and i don't see him beating Djokovic.

I meant who are your Top 8 that would qualify. Nadal, Djokovic and Murray have qualified so I wonder who the other 5 could be. #13 - #7 are just around 1000 points between, and #5 and #6.

Ferrer's only 25 points away from qualifying, mark his name down too.

I think Berdych and Del Potro will play but it depends on fitness, Del Potro in particular is far from safe.

I'll say Federer and Gasquet for the last two spots, though scheduling should be taken into account.

Ferrer for sure.
Berdy & Del Potro will almost certainly qualify ... can't see 3 others getting enough points to pass them (big 3 will eat up most of them)
So yes it is realistically down to 7 & 8.
.
I'd say Fed & Wawa have 65% chance, Richard 60% ... actually I'd be surprised if it wasn't the 2 Swiss.

For the field: Tsonga, Raonic, Haas, Isner about 10% for the lot (not sure much different for any of them ... one of them would have to steal a Masters) .... no one else has any chance (ok, maybe 0.5% or so)

also think Raonic will be back in the top-10, maybe even #9, but then again I'm biased :-)

Ferrer is safe. Likely even if he doesn't play any more.
Others:
Berdych
del Potro (The order may switch)
Federer
The 8th is a huge toss up, Tsonga may still get it if he comes back. Wawrinka isn't great indoors, but Gasquet is no genius either. Neither Raonic or Haas is 100% out of the running
