Who do you predict will move into the Top 10 and Top 20 (or extend it to Top 40!) in 2013?

Losers:  :thumb-down:
Who do you predict will drop out of the Top 10 and Top 20 (or extend it to Top 40!) in 2013?

Probably should expand, but it will be interesting to see everyone sit on the rankings and then watch them get shaken up.

Typical keep-it-close to the vest T4U so far. I just looked at 2011. In 2012, 2 new Top 10ers and...5 dropped out of the Top 20 including a Top 10 player.

I've been following him for a couple-three years now. He reached his first 2 career finals in 2012. Looking for some hardware in 2013.

His low ranking could get in the way though!

Thought provoking thread, Babblelot. When it comes down to it, the bulk of the top 10 are cemented there - there is precious little the others seem to have done / seem capable of doing given the endemic lack of consistency.       

Winners
Raonic.  Into top 10. The man seems destined for it.
Almagro. Into top 10. I'd be pleased to see him do it.
Klizan. Into top 20. My one to watch from 2012.
Tommy Haas. Into top 20. He is enjoying his tennis again.   

Losers
Gasquet. Out of top 10. (  :(  ) 
Tipsarevic. Out of top 10.
Kohlshrieber. Out of top 20.
Dolgopolov. Out of top 20. (   :(  )
