    Although Brian Baker has had some nice little grand slam runs, and just beat step today, I can only see Baker hovering around the 35-45 range for the next year or two, with that said he will already be 52 in the rankings if he loses to Delpo tommorw, while only have playing half the year. Where does everyone think Baker belongs in the rankings?

    30-40....provided a few good run and plenty of dissapointments.

    This time next year will give us a better idea, with him having to defend some points, and had a full year plus on tour to balance out his results, as it's somewhat easier to come on tour with nothing to defend and only points to collect, versus this next year where he will have to back up those results and feel a little more pressure, which I think is one reason he did so horribly during the US Open series, he had some pressure to come home and continue winning like he had been in Europe, where he was basically some unknown American.

    It's hard to say. His career is certainly a bit abnormal.

    I think he can be a 20-30 caliber and maybe a few weeks in the TOP 20.

    I don't know, he definitely has had some awesome wins in the slams and at Nice but he had some pretty ugly losses in the past couple months too. Once he's been on tour for a few more months it will be easier to tell.
