I'd like to see a resurgence of Davydenko.
 
When that guy is on his game his level is top five easily, he's not young though.

I think both Tips and Gasquet will be out of the top 10.  Yeah Gasquet just won a tourney, but the year is young and these two have a lot of hungry players behind them looking to break into the top 10.  I do not see them moving forward in the rankings much at all.

I like Nishikori, but he just dropped out of a tourney with an injury so....

Good Luck on the Court!!!

Winners - Dimitrov, Davydenko, Ferrer, Janowicz
Losers - Hewitt, Nadal, Isner, Karolovic
Then we will fight in the shade.

Interesting picks, FFF  Have you swapped Ferrer for Nadal in the top four?
 I like Dimitrov's game &  hope he can be consistent enough to break into the top twenty.

I'm not sure about Raonic top 10...

That's it?!  Lol
Who's the new junior sensation  you've got you're eyeball on?

I haven't seen anyone to catch my 'eye' yet.  I'll have to try to check out some of the up and coming juniors more closely.  I just hope Roger stays in the game until someone catches my eye! :Confused:

He has been around for a while and hasn't shown me much (except for last week). We will see.

he must be doing something right. there is a reason. he is Sharapova's bf, that is his biggest accomplishment   :rofl_2:

seriously guys, all youngsters suck. I hate to say this. I wish them all the best but they can't even win minor tournaments.

I hope Shmurray drops out of top 10 so I can hurt Emma's feelings   :ice cream:

Someday they'll be winning everything.  Then the weak era deniers will be squawking about a weak era. That's just people.

Querrey Top 20


Losers
Gasquet Top 10 - Top 20*
Tipsarevic Top 10 - Top 20*
Dolgopolov Top 20 below
Nishikori Top 20 below



*Sorry Bab, I had no real intention of copying you but not too many choices there  :)~

Cilic is not making the top 10 now.

Sid, you know I'm fooling around here often. I hurt some feelings but that wasn't my intention  :). I thought people had known me better on this board. I'll still bug ya about Murray any time I can, like it or not  :)~. too bad Emma is still acting like a princess and I can't tease her too  :).

anyways, I'm happy for The Fog. I really like him.

I'm still very disappointed with all 'youngsters'. Nobody can break through. I feel we are stuck with Djokovic, Rafa (if his knees behave  :)~) and Murray for a while.

I'm trying so hard to find a new young player to like/support and it's not happening  :\.  Dallas is right.

MT, I just tend to do so many things at the same time (I'm still not well, but trying hard, don't want to talk about it  really). don't have as much time as before. there was a great German site where you could watch juniors, challengers, futures. no commercials, no pop ups, the best site ever but it got shut down.

now guys like Raonic, Harrison, Sock, Dimitrov, Tomic ... not sure it's gonna happen for them. maybe Tomic if he smartens up and starts training harder, playing the whole season etc. well, I'll keep looking for a new gf, new favorite player..... this life is tough  :gleam:

To be honest, I don't think much of Raonic. He's pretty stiff. He's got a great serve, due to his height, but not much else. He's too big bodied to move well, which is a premium in today's tennis.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

all true but he is Canadian  :). In Canada if you don't watch hockey 24/7 you are not patriotic  ..-). We have nobody but Raonic and a good old Nestor. It must count for something  :innocent:.

The sad thing is things are not much better in the States  :zipped:. I like Sock ... but,
