What do you think the Top 10 will look like five years from now in 2020?

Here are my predictions:

1. Borna Coric
2. Alexander Zverev
3. Nick Kyrgios
4. Jiri Vesely
5. Novak Djokovic
6. Hyeon Chung
7. Milos Raonic
8. Grigor Dimitrov
9. Andry Rublev
10. Felix Auger Aliassime (hehe)

Honorary mentions: Thanasi Kokkinakkis, Bernard Tomic, Lucas Pouille, Kei Nishikori, Roger Federer (who knows)

Can easily see in 5 years time Djokovic will still be number one.

Nadal retired,Federer might still be going--- around 10th n the world.Murray-- around the same as Fed.

Even at 35 years of age in 7 years time I expect him to be still winning majors.

His body is carrying no excess weight and his technique means he can dictate most rallies.

I strongly doubt this but more because of injuries than anything. You make a good point about weight. Of the top guys Djoker seems the most built for longevity but his occasionally grindy playing style isn't helping that cause.

Chung is doing well v Verdasco and he's made huge improvements this year. He broke Berdych a few times in Miami as well. However, I need to see him for a couple more years before safely deciding he is a future top 10 material. He looks promising, though.
 
1. Coric
2. Dimitrov
3. Zverev
4. Djokovic (14 majors and counting)
5. Kyrgios
6. Raonic
7. Nishikori
8. Murray (4 majors)
9. Nadal (19 majors and still winning on clay)
10. Tomic

There was a thread created at the end of 2013 for the top 10 at the end of 2014. No one could name even the top 2 in correct order. That shows how likely you are to get it right 5 years out.

This. Might as well play the lottery.

Concerning your lists folks, I doubt that Coric will be number 1. He has the consistent game to nab a title every now and then when the dominant players aren't playing well, but not in order to dominate himself IMO.

4 years later good evidence that my assessment wasn’t off.
