    Simon has half his points to defend until the end of the year. He'll be gone in a hurry.

    Yea i agree with that. Simon has not done well at majors. He is very talented, but is not putting up results.

    Simon, Simon, Simon, yes Simon

    Davydenko is a very real possability too.

    Tsonga has alot of points to defend so he could also this fall potentially.

    Verdasco and Roddick will end this year in the top 7 I believe, but either could easily drop out of the top 10 come next year.

    Really only the top 5 are set to atleast stay in the top 7 or so.

    Guys with the potential to move into the top 10 who arent there now are Soderling, Cilic, maybe Monfils, and maybe Gonzalez.

    Simon for sure. Possibly Verdasco if he doesn't defend his points in the AO. Davydenko could also be sent packing as well.

    Simon and Tsonga have alot of points to defend but i'm picking Simon to drop out of top 10.

    Simon is an unworthy top 10 player IMO, he hasn't done anything at all this year and is still ranked no 10. Till the end of the year he's gonna lose a lot of points if he doesn't defend his Madrid points (now Shanghai) and his SF at the YEC.

    hope davy stays in there he is one of my favs as he still manages to beat great players without a serve

    also hope hewitt continues his comeback and surge towards top 10 think hes mid 20's now.. would also be good to see gasquet come back, imo he has the best backhand there is.

    Simon will be out for sure.
    Davydenko might be out also because (unfortunetely) to his foot injury.
    Tsonga, even though he did a good 2009 year, he still has to defend his Paris Masters points.
    I think that the top 6 is already defined (maybe they'll swap places between them).

    My guess is that Verdasco will end at #7 and Gonzo at #8

    Simon is really not worthy of being top 10 IMO. He had a flukish good year last year but there's very little chance he can repeat it. Soderling should replace him.

    Fail on my part, I was distracted. :-? He might still drop out if the rest of the bottom 4 have big indoor hardcourt seasons and he has a bad one.

    Simon and Davydenko

    Simon has to defend YEC SF; Davy has to defend YEC finals.

    I expect Soderling and Verdasco to replace them.

    Also, Gonzo could replace Tsonga, b/c Tsonga has to defend his Paris Masters title from last year

    Mmm, if we say that someone is going to drop, then someone else is going to take his place. Looking at the rankings below the top 10, I really can't see who's going to join the group... So my guess is that the top 10 of 2009 will be the same top 10 of 2010. I would be tempted to say that Tsonga, Verdasco or Simon will drop, but who would join?

    I don't see Hewitt making a top 10 comeback, he's playing well but he hasn't beaten any top players except Del Potro at Wimbeldon.

    Top 20 is possible though...

  32. Simon easily. He's No.17 in the ATP race.

    I'm not sure about Davydenko. He's No.10 in the race and Tsonga is No.11. It's a toss up between them.

    Verdasco will stay in Top10 until the year end.

  34. Nadal for sure,no?? Because his knees hurts, his arms, his abdominals, his toes, his tongue, his ears, his bandana, and his butt hurts!
