Make you 2006 end of year ranking predictions for the following players


Andy Murray

It will be interesting to come back to this thread and see who was on the money. Here are mine

Murray , ranking between 10-15

Djokovic, ranking between 70-80

Monfils, ranking between 40-50

Monfils and Djokovic are already ranked where you put them for the end of next year. I seriously doubt that none of them will improve...

Well, naturally. To borrow a phrase from dreaded Eurosport commentator Simon Reed, he is a bonnie wee fighter.

Why does this here not make sense:

I definitely think Novak will be the highest out of the 3, say top 20 or higher maybe, I think Monfils will be around the same area, I say Murray will be around 30-40 area.

I'm saying Djokovic will stay largely where he is, Monfils will make a solid improvement and Murray will continue to rocket up the rankings.

Monfils will make a solid improvement by not moving in the rankings at all?

Why provide a range for your predictions? Optimism is cheap, so

Murray 1
Djokovic 82
Monfils 47

Hmm
In my logical order
1. Djokovic
2. Murray
3. Monfils
But I'm 100% with aj_m2009 ;) Djokovic would be one of the best and very soon ;)
I THINK!! Monfils has to work in his nerves ;)

Djokovic is so devoid of talent I don't know why he is so popular on MTF, all the pundits are giving Murray the plaudits and the more they see him play the more optimistic their projections for his career. All I see in Djokovic is the potential for him to be a solid journeyman, his game is so unimaginative and forced that he is no different than the hundreds of other tennis factory kids. Murray is the only one that I can see that has the intangibles, the X-factor, call it what you will. The genetic offal of MTF clearly only appreciate greatness when it is in full bloom, and not whilst it is in growth. If you look at what some people here said about Federer before he broke through it is clear the average MFT denizen can't spot ability for shit.

What error, his ranking for this year will level out with him being around 60ish, I expect him to end next year in the mind 40's a very significant percentile ranking improvement.

Not so sure how to respond. :confused: These comments are based on absolutely nothing.

I keep wanting to like Murray and then I read posts like these by his obsessive fans.

Back to the point of the thread... oh how I suck with long-term predictions. I have absolutely no clue where they will be ranked at the end of 2006 but I think Monfils will be the highest and will have the most solid year of the three.
