When will Tipsarevic exit top 10?
 
He's been playing quite badly lately. Losing in early rounds of tournaments, retiring from matches, getting bageled and such.

How long can he stay ranked so highly (currently #9)? And who will replace him?

Is it Almagro time? Or will Simon make it?

Gulbis will take it from him.....with his Delray, Madrid and FO title wins.

He has a lot of points to defend in Madrid and in USO. Let's just wait it happen.

He has to win Delray first.

Hopefully soon.
I want Gasquet or Nishikori to take his place.

He should be out of top 10 soon. Nishikori and Gasquet are much more talented.

He's the most overrated player in top 20.

Terenigma 03-02-2013 03:50 PM

When one of those so called "future stars" actually delivers on the hype. So.... never?

Paullaconte1 03-02-2013 04:02 PM

He should retire another couple of times and then game over, It would be nice to see somebody like Tomic, Dimitrov, Janowicz or Gulbis to break in. We need some excitement.

Overrated or Overranked?

Tipsarevic deserves credit for at least holding on to his top 10 ranking but he really isn't a factor in the top ten because he doesn't really have a good record against the other top players. Tipsarevic also seems to be a career quarterfinalist he's good enough to win minor events and reach a couple of slam quarterfinals but he eventually loses to better players. He's a small guy but he's maximized his talent.

He would need to lose around 600 points to exit the top 10. His main points are coming from Madrid, Canada, US open, Dusseldorf and Stuggart. I say no earlier than Canada.

very true, i think he's a good player, but he hardly ever knocks off any of the top six. and he's not a very young guy either.

That "small" guy is one inch shorter than AndyMurray and an inch taller than Nadal and Federer. Close to DJ, that "small" guy.

What? He's 5'11"... Not quite Ferrer short, but not even close to Nada and Fed...

both. he's being overrated by tennis fans (not necessarily his fans), and is overranked as well.

Uh he' s 5'11". Murray's 6'3".

Hopefully he'll be out of the top 20 soon.. Can't stand him. The retirement king.

I'll bite. Who should be ranked higher than him that isn't? And why?
