    Judging by the buzz going around on the TW messag board, I would say Sampras. But, will go with Federer just to be on the safe side.

    Roger will be number one for at least 2-3 more years..I think. Nadal won't get any better..Djokovic is not tough enough...I don't see any youngsters making a serious run next year in top 50..but you never know..maybe there is a future Sampras, Agassi, Laver, Borg...in top 100.. ;)

    Obviously Federer. Nadal would have to do something outside of clay to be number one, and I don't see that happening. Djokovic is too young and too inexperienced. And Nalbandian is fat, so he couldn't be number one.

    Only 7 posts and look at all the votes for Fed. Tsk, tsk...who's not posting here? lol.

    I went with other...who that will be is unknown, but I have an inkling it won't be the top three. Let's get some fresh blood out there!!

    I expect injuries to hamper Nadal next year and Djokovic to have trouble continuing his 2007 form. It's hard to imagine anyone else challenging Federer. It will be interesting to see who will be the Djokovic of 2008.

    It's gonna be Fed. Unless something horrible happens, like the apocalypse, or his assassination, or Nadal suddenly beating him on places other than clay...

    Fed should be the favourite, but a rejuvenated Nadal just might finally break through.

    Yes, in a related story, effective immediately, Etienne De Villers has decided unilaterally to run the ATP rankings like a singles challenge ladder.

    Sampras finishes a record 7th year in a row at number one.

    Sorry, I was thinking 2007.
    For 2008, I'm thinking Federer for one or two more years.
