    I think Youzhny could possibly get back near or into the top10.
    Not sure about who will fall off the most, could be Roddick if he loses motivation or Nadal if he has some additional physical problems.

    Verdasco maybe...he hasn't posted that great of results and will most likely be out of the top 10...but not by much.

    i doubt nadal will fall far- he is still getting to QF, SF, and Finals of events so it will be hard for him not to stay in the top 5 in the next year. He also has no points to defend at Wimbledon or Queens, tourneys he has done pretty well at.

    Hewitt I think will make it back into the top 15-20

    I'm also going to throw Baghdatis into the improvement bunch, because he did well at Stockholm last week and because I'm a fan :)

  4. I think that Verdasco Nadal and maybe Davydenko will fall...
    I think Cilic and Soderling will rise up even more.

    Cilic could be really scary if he can ever become consistent. Why do you all think Verdasco will fall so dramatically? I think Querrey has some nice upside as well and could surprise a few folks next year - assuming his arm heals up.

    Got a feeling Tsonga's gonna fall pretty hard after Paris MS, and I wonder if he will be getting those points back next year. I kind of doubt it. He's going to lose points from the MC too.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Del Potro is #2 in the rankings in 12 months.

    Now that people know how to play Murray, I think he is on the way down. Every time Nadal plays a tall, flat hitter, on a fast court, he is on his way down.

    Youzhny, Hewitt, Monfils, Gasquet, Zverev and Gulbis on the way up.

    Fernando Gonzalez, Robredo on the way down.

    Murray will stay where he is. Fed&Nadal will fail and fall. Djokovic could get #1.

    I dont think Novak will get number 1. I think Murray, Nadal, and Fed will be fine for next year. Roddick as well. I could Potro moving up even mroe along with Cilic but I wouldnt expect to much changes... yet
