Year end #1 for men- Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal?
« on: April 06, 2008, 06:07:13 PM »
With Roger Federer clearly washed up tennis waits to see who will take on the vacant position as World #1.   The question is who will hold that position at the end of the year.   It seems to be a 2-man race between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.   Who will emerge on top when the dust settles and be the 2008 year end #1?

I think Fed will get better as the season goes on. I think he will maintain his ranking.

ok, so without having to vote and disrupt "true beliefs" I want to know the results of the poll. why can't we have a "just show me the results choice there"?? please?

if not.. i dunno. I refuse to vote cuz its plain ridiculous. Nadal and Djokovic can both go away, just because they have had a decent first two months and Fed has had a "horrible" first two months means nothing, the situations could very well reverse in another month.

I'm with you.  I refuse to vote on just those two options so I don't know how it's going so far.  I still think Roger is the answer but since kittens refused to put his name on this poll, I refuses to vote! :)~

I have no problem thinking that Djokovic could take over #1 this year. But it's no slam dunk, and I don't think Nadal is the guy who will be battling for that spot. Though he will be in the mix. So far it's Djokovic by a landslide 4-0. But it's early.

Exactly. And the thing is, its a serious and interesting topic as well, I can very well see it being a close poll even with Roger in the mix. It's rather obnoxious to do something like this  :\ come on Kittens, please put Roger on there and make it a fair poll if you really want to see results that hold true value.  :))
