Default What would happen if the top 4 were gone for one year?

Imagine that 2013 is played without Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray. So the rankings for the year go like this:

1.Ferrer
2.Berdych
3.Del Potro
4.Tsonga
And so on...

How do you think the big tournaments would turn out to be? How dominant would this imaginary top 4 be in relation to the rest of the field? Who would win each GS and be the best on each surface?

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Default Re: What would happen if the top 4 were gone for one year?

Del potro would win AO and USO
Ferrer would win RG
and Berdych would win Wimbledon

but the year end ranking will be 1. ferrer (winning all clay court season or losing in 1 final and 1-2 more masters)
2. Delpo (not as consistent in winning matches against top 30)
3. Berdych
4. tipsi (winning 1-2 masters events and 500's and semis at 2-3 slams)

Default Re: What would happen if the top 4 were gone for one year?

Ferrer is owning Del Potro, Berdych and Tsonga, so I wouldn't be so convinced these 3 would win so many slams

Wimbledon could go to Berdych I think

Yeah I find it so funny how people underrate Ferrer compared to them. As if he could win only RG... He hasn't lost one single match to these 3 guys this year, and I believe he has either a neutral or a positive H2H against them on every surface (except against Tsonga on grass).
