I see a lot of the young Americans like Sock, Kudla, and maybe even Rhyne Williams and Harrison's little brother making it this year.

I don't think they'll get much higher than that, however.

well its not like he's ranked 101. I cant sit here and list everyone with a possiblity of getting in because anyone between 101-150 could do it and then there's guys well outside that could get in too. This is why i said you should list others if you didnt see someone you liked there

If he stays injury free, I can't see him finishing outside the top 100. At twenty-two years-old, you'd like to think he's learnt from all the tough defeats he's endured. Fact is, he's far too good not be a top 100 player.

Wow, so many names worth the top 100 starting with Picasso, QQ, Andreev, Sela, Stakh, De Bakker, Dancevic, Berankis, Gulbis...

didn't figure so many of them are actually outside the door.
