In the same vein as the thread about the top 6 against each other, this thread examines that same idea on a wider scope; the WTF showed us how deep the top ten actually is, so it would be a fair assessment to look at #7-10 as well.

Note: this statistical analysis only examines the records of the top ten against other players who finished the year as member of the top ten, as the players may have faced players such as Gonzalez who later fell out of the top ten (and thus wouldn't be counted) or someone like Soderling who was not ranked in the top ten at the beginning of the year but rose to his position later (and thus would be counted).

That reads...
Impressive for Fed
Surprising for Rafa (2nd is most wins / 3rd in most losses) :confused:

Horrible ratio for Verdasco. That is why many dont think he can stay in the current very deep top 10. I was impressed how he played at his first YEC, but you have to actually win some of those matches.

I agree that it is an abysmal ratio - however, he did have more matches against the top ten than three other members of the same group, which means he's consistently making it fairly deep in tournaments. I don't see him in the top ten next year, either, but I think he could float around the top 15, or so.
