    After a 2nd straight year of finishing the year ranked #6 what will Roddick's year end ranking be in 2008? Will he move up from the #6 he ended two straight years now, or perhaps move down instead?

    I see him finishing behind only Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Đoković.

    yeah I think he'll be in the top 5 too, it matters if he can beat djoko/nadal and not lose 1st round at the French.

    I think top 5 r at worst 6... I think he can improve against Nadal, djoko and that will help him stay in the mix, hopefully he gets a good start to the year!

    I voted #6 again. I think Davydenko is going down. I think Djokovic might drop from #3 but not below Roddick. I think Ferrer might stay up there, maybe even move higher. I think 1 of Murray or Nalbandian will pass Roddick, but not both. I think Gasquet is ridiculously overrated.

    I guess about #7 or #8,I think Murray and Nalbandian will get ahead of him and I expect Ferrer with his newfound confidence to stay inside the top 10.I also expect Djokovic to stay #3.

    Agreed. Roddick will still be in the top 10 thats for sure. His game is still effective on faster hard courts. He could still get into many 1/4 finals and 1/2 finals before running into the top 5, 6 guys which will then give him a hard time.

    I think something about Roddick's game is that it's good enough to keep him in the top 5-6, but he doesn't that special something to get any farther, or push ahead of Djokovic, Nadal, Federer and now Ferrer, I think as well. Like he can beat the rest below him, but there's no room for him to move up because he can't crack special or amazing winners. Personally I find his game very mechanical and ordinary, so he can stay up there, but nowhere near as loose or natural or skilled as the others mentioned above, and thats why he loses to them and won't move up or down.

    The most popular pick so far is barely in the top 5. Interesting.

    What makes you think he will surpass Ferrer and Davydenko? Also do you think he will stay ahead of a healthy Murray if we see that.
