(The number after the entrants' names shows the penalty points for every deviation from the real rankings.)


The Challenge
Code:
[B]Predict the Tennis players that will finish inside the Top 8 at the end of the 2012 season[/B] 
(after the DavisCup finals)[B] - and their rankings! 

Basically the winner is who predicts most Top 8 players correctly[/B] (so as possible 8). 
[B]The predicted rankings will be used for tiebreaks. Then every single deviation from the real rankings 
leads to one penalty point[/B] (for every player/pick simply accumulated).
For example, if I guess that Federer finishes 1st and Nadal 3rd, but in reality it turns out to be reversely, 
then I receive 2 penalty points for each of them, so altogether 4. 
[B]Deadline for your picks is 29th December 2011, 11:00(AM) GMT[/B] (when the AbuDhabi tournament starts). 
Before then you can also alter your picks / edit your posts if you like.


Stats
Code:
The Tennis players picked by the 47 entrants are sorted by their ATP rankings (year end 2011) 
to better illustrate the expected changes. 
The first number after the players' names shows how often they were picked. 
The second number results from the predicted rankings, if 8 points for 1st ranks, ..., 1 for 8th. 

  1. [B]Djokovic[/B]   46   338 
  2. [B]Nadal[/B]      45   286!  
  3. [B]Federer[/B]    47   286! 
  4. [B]Murray[/B]     46   259  
  5. [B]Ferrer[/B]     36    91 
  6. [B]Tsonga[/B]     47!  167 
  7. [B]Berdych[/B]    20    37 
 (8. [B]Fish[/B]        0[B]![/B]) 
  9. [B]Tipsarevic[/B]  5 
 10. [B]Almagro[/B]     1       (by [B][I]djokovicgonzalez[/I][/B]) 
 11. [B]DelPotro[/B]   44   146 
 12. [B]Simon[/B]       2       (by [B][I]Gillouthe_best[/I][/B] and [B][I]Leo[/I][/B]) 
 13. [B]Soderling[/B]  13    29 
 14. [B]Roddick[/B]     1       (by [B][I]PiggyGotRoasted[/I][/B]) 
 15. [B]Dolgopolov[/B]  6 
 16. [B]Monfils[/B]     8    15 
 18. [B]Isner[/B]       1       (by [B][I]abollo[/I][/B]) 
 25. [B]Nishikori[/B]   1       (by [B][I]Hesse[/I][/B]) 
 31. [B]Raonic[/B]      3 
 38. [B]Seppi[/B]       1       (by [B][I]Mateya[/I][/B]) 
 42. [B]Tomic[/B]       1       (by [B][I]Machado_&_Gil[/I][/B]) 
 58. Starace     1       (by [B][I]Mateya[/I][/B]) 
 --. Mathieu     1       (by [B][I]Mateya[/I][/B])
Code:
So the average prediction for the 2012 season is: 

 1. [B]Djokovic[/B]       0 
 2. [B]Nadal/Federer[/B]  0/+1  
 3. [B]Federer/Nadal[/B]  0/-1 
 4. [B]Murray[/B]         0 
 5. [B]Tsonga[/B]        +1 
 6. [B]DelPotro[/B]      +5 (supposed to replace [B]Fish[/B] in the Top8) 
 7. [B]Ferrer[/B]        -2 
 8. [B]Berdych[/B]       -1 

However, nobody chose precisely the above version(s).

Re: Predict the Top 8 of the 2012 season!

Djokovic
Murray
Nadal
Federer
Del Potro (not convinced his game will ever get back to his best, but a distant 5th should be within reach)
Tsonga (not expecting any major breakthroughs)
Ferrer (tends to cycle a bit, suspect this year was the peak)
Dolgopolov (he would probably have made it this season if he wasn't unwell all the way through Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo, Rome, Madrid, and the effects on match sharpness at RG/Wimb, yet still was within touching distance of top10).
