The top 4 will remain the top 4.
The top 8 will remain the top 8 (barring injuries)

My guess:
1. Djokovic
2. Federer
3. Nadal
4. Murray
5. Ferrer
6. Del Potro
7. Tsonga
8. Berdych
9. Tipsarevic
10. Raonic

All the players are from this year's top 10 with the exception of Raonic. The current group looks very stable.

2. Murray or change the top two to be: 1) Murray and 2) Djokovic. Could be either way.

8. Tsonga
9. Isner or Nishikori

Interesting that I am the only one so far to not pick Djokovic for #1. Will be interesting to see how it plays out. I sort of think there is a good chance it will be Djokovic, but picking him is boring. I do have a feeling Murray could take #1, and that if Nadal comes back fit he could surprise people just like he did in 2010, and to a lesser degree in 2008. He usually only dominates or does really well nobody expects it.

There's no way Raonic would be #5, Paire would be #10 and Federer would be #7. That's not happening.

I'm not sure why Raonic wouldn't be number 5? He's currently about 14 and is the only player under 22 in the top 50 (if you exclude Tomic assuming he's still there until next Monday). I think he's a big chance of winning either Wimbledon or more likely the US Open next year. It's an ageing top 10 at the moment and I expect it to be cracked wide open over the next 18 months. As for Federer, he's won one grand slam of the last 12, and has been in gradual decline. He played brilliantly at Wimbledon last year but that was the only grand slam final he made. He could easily drop significantly in the rankings over the next 12 months. If he starts drawing berdytch or Nadal in the quarter finals of majors he faces the likelihood of more early exits. As for Paire, I put him in because I have absolutely no opinion on who will be number 10 but I enjoy watching him play and think he's talented. The accuracy or otherwise of my opinions will be revealed in 14 months.

I am surprised why most have picked Federer to be ranked over Nadal just based on Nadal's "injury related" absence this year. I will not at all be surprised if Nadal comes back and dominates like he was never away from the tour. With Djoko and Murray, consistency is an issue, so you can never be sure of how they will fare. With Fed growing old and perhaps not being as motivated after breaking almost every possible record there is to break, if Djoko-Murray slump a bit, Nadal will easily regain #1 ranking like he did in 2010.

What I want:

1. Federer (2 slams (Wimby and USO to be the #1 at both)
2. Rafa (Come back strong, win FO)
3. Djoko/Murray (whichever wins in Australia)
4. Djoko/Murray (above reasoning)
5. Delpo (Hopefully gets the WTF title)
6. Ferrer (Wins like 7 titles again)
7. Raonic (Breaks through to the top 10)
8. Tipserevic (consistency throughout the year)
9. Tsonga (Does well, at least one GS final)
10. Peliwo/Dimitrov :) (Just because)

What I think will happen:

1. Djokovic (Wins AO plus finals in some others, like this year)
2. Murray (Wins some grandslam, close race with Novak for #1, could even be #1)
3. Federer (Gets to a GS final, maybe wins like Wimby 2012, wins Cincy, maybe the WTF)
4. Rafa (I hope he wins another slam next year, but I'm not sure how he'll react to the time off)
5. Delpo (Maybe a slam, maybe a final, maybe anything. I just want him back in the top 5)
6. Ferrer (How can't you like this guy? I think he'll be consistent enough for a top 6 finish
7. Tsonga (he can get really hot at times, maybe get to a slam final, maybe some semis, you never know with him)
8. Berdych (Don't like him, but he's good at tennis)
9. Raonic (Just missing out on WTF qualification, but its a step forward for my countryman)
10. Gasquet ( I like the guy, and he can get hot like Tsonga)

Bonus:

Querrey into top 15-20
Baker into top 30
Peliwo into top 75-150 (big range, but you never know)
Dimitrov into top 20-30

you think Cilic will get to top 10 ? Well, with the way he played today, not very likely. He has to improve all part of his game to get there. AS IT IS, he's been mediocre at best, beaten by a #65 in the world.

I would have thought he would have made a major dent in the ATP by now, but since his stellar performance in OZ Open of 2010, nothing much. Am not sure what's his exact problem is tho'

Romismak
10-30-2012, 09:33 AM
Top 4 should be top 4 even with NAdal and his limited schedule or Roger declining + he will have limited schedule probably by himself

than 5-8 should be the same , big hitters Delpo,Berdych and Tsonga if healthy are better than the rest the biggest threats for top 4 at slams and Masters1000. Ferrer will probably decline little bit - i mean he is not getting any younger, but thanks to his seedings he will be making QF, at many big events + points from Acapulco, and some 250 will be enough for him to end top 8 again.

Than 9-10 this is big question, basically anyone in top 20 with good season and form can go there, Tipsy was solid 2 years in top 10, he can do it again, but we will see, Isner,Raonic have potential to by YE top 10, guys like Wawrinka, Gasquet, Cilic,Almagro, Nishikori and other top 20 with can end up bottom top 10 too.

So i just can say top 8 if healthy should be big 4 + Delpo,Berdych,Tsonga, Ferrer

9-10 is really open for at least 10-15 players we will see who will have better and who much better 2013 than 2012 from those guys.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a year similar to this year with Djokovic and Murray swapping the #1 and 2 spot a couple of times and it coming right down to the wire to know for sure who will end the year at #1. I think Federer and Nadal could go either way, and a lot will depend on whether or not Nadal comes back at 100%. If he does, anything goes.

I expect a pretty big drop for Isner because he has been extremely inconsistent this year. Tipsarevic is an inconsistent player and his high ranking this year was due to a good end of year. I expect Sam Querrey to move up into the top 15 and I expect Ryan Harrison to stay where he is. Donald Young sucks. That is all.

:lol: to all of this. You know that none of this is going to happen so you say it will in hopes of bringing down some almighty jinx on top of Nadal's head. Lol. Well,he doesn't need your jinxes to be a big failure next year because he will do a fantastic job of that all by himself(if he even comes back at all).

Isner will not be in the top 10. So many of his results are him losing in early rounds and some very average players beat him while on a good day he can beat any player (look at Davis Cup), but I expect Querrey to become the top American

If Tomic gets his head together, he could be top 20. I see quite a few changes to the top 20 next year, but not so much the top 10. Every player in the top ten has some sort of consisteny to keep themselves within that rank. They're in their primes and that's their potential.

maybe dimitrov in the top 20.

I agree completely with your 10 picks but perhaps in a slightly different order. Since Cilic's high rank of 9 in Feb 2010 he fell to 32 in July 2011. However, in the last 18 months he's been back up as high as 13(currently 15). Therefore, it seems a good shout for him continuing to creep back up and finish 9/10 by the end of next year.

My outside pick is Tomic to be top 20 in 12 months time. His focus on tennis is the biggest question mark of course. But of all the up and coming players, I think he has the most potential, despite a disappointing 2012. He still has time on his side, seeing as he's the only guy aged under 21 in the top 140, I believe.

The ONLY sign that he needs to retire is empty stadiums or rejected wildcards.

The main reason I see Murray passing him. I also believe Ferrer is in a tier by himself between the big 4 and the field (except maybe del Potro, he's a wild card for me.) He's a special case, he's having more success now than his younger age.

LMAO!!! Don't know why, but this post got me laughing so hard :)

C'mon, Delpo and Tsonga aren't that bad and Fed could still remain a contender in slams even if his ranking drops (though obviously it will be harder once he drops out of top 4 territory).

1) Djokavic - it's hard to see someone over-taking him right now. he's just better than Murray and everyone else had a good reason why they wont' be #1..

2) Murray - again, youth, hunger consistency

3) Del Potro - I think he wins a slam next year, I'm just not sure which one. I don't like him, but he's getting back to '09 form slowly but surely.

4) Federer - cuts down on tourneys and has a lot to defend and he's not going to defend it all. I hope for one slam.... I have a bad feeling it's going to be worse than 2011

5) Nadal - Wins 2 clay masters and the French Open and nothing else.... and that's good enough for this ranking.

6) Ferrer - because at this point it doesn't matter anymore.. we're talking about guys that can't win slams... no one that hasn't won one yet seems ready to take a leap.

7) Byrdych

8) Tsonga

9) no one is still reading my post

If everybody says Nadal is done, doesn't that mean he won't be a top ten player anymore?

Proof of how underrated Ferrer is as most have him 6th or 7th and nobody 3rd.

Top 10 end of 2014:

1. Djokovic (Obviously)
2. Murray (Obviously)
3. DelPotro (start to be more consistent)
4. Nadal (still hanging at top 4, but barely)
5. Federer (better season than 2013, but not much)
6. Tsonga (if not injured half of the time any more)
7. Wawrinka (will be constant top 8 )
8. Ferrer (still there but not #3 any more)
9. Berdych (unfortunately pigeon is still top 10)
10. Raonic (first time top 10)

So it looks like 2-3 people called Nadal to be #1, and only one person called Wawrinka to be in the top ten before 2013 started. No one called Ferrer to be #3 (in fact most had in him dropping to 7-10 range, myself included), and only ONE person had Federer dropping out of the top 4.

Pretty unpredictable year I'd say.

I am surprised why most have picked Federer to be ranked over Nadal just based on Nadal's "injury related" absence this year. I will not at all be surprised if Nadal comes back and dominates like he was never away from the tour. With Djoko and Murray, consistency is an issue, so you can never be sure of how they will fare. With Fed growing old and perhaps not being as motivated after breaking almost every possible record there is to break, if Djoko-Murray slump a bit, Nadal will easily regain #1 ranking like he did in 2010.

:lol: to all of this. You know that none of this is going to happen so you say it will in hopes of bringing down some almighty jinx on top of Nadal's head. Lol. Well,he doesn't need your jinxes to be a big failure next year because he will do a fantastic job of that all by himself(if he even comes back at all).

Of course I knew exactly what will happen after Nadal returns from his "injury break". But you, of course, are the resident Oracle of wisdom.

Think of this thread the next time you're trying to predict the winners of the next 10 slams or whether current 19 year-olds will ever amount to anything.

The difference between these predictions and reality is exactly why they play the matches: we just don't know what will happen.

When i put Federer to finish the year at number 7, I did of course immediately get accused of trolling

I wonder what the top 10 at the end of 2014 will look like.
