OK, that's the defending champion dealt with. Next - 2nd seed Kevin Anderson.

Big drop in store for Andujar and Ramos - last year's finalists both out before R2 (Ramos withdrew before tournament started).

Fantastic result for Carreno. That win alone is worth more than winning a Futures event.

Busta's run came to an end today.

Kevin Anderson (WR29) beat Pablo Carrena-Busta (WR 293), 6-3 6-3.

Goes up about 40 places in rankings though,  to about 250 next week.

I think Nishikori is the only one of these guys that will be able to reach a top level at some point (by top level I mean the likes of being in the top 4 for a while), and that will rely largely on him improving his fitness drastically.

I think he'll also have to improve his serve - at the moment it's very breakable.

I see Dimitrov and Tomic as both getting to the top 10 at some point. Dimitrov's shown great improvement over the last 12 months, but his recent matches against Novak and Andy show he has nerves facing the top players. Tomic too has shown before that he has talent, but needs to improve his effort levels. Raonic could get to the top 10 soon - he's up to 15 in the world now.

Nishikori is very injury prone despite being consistent.

I agree with Katie - I believe both Dimitrov and Tomic are the future top tenners. In fact, I believe they'll be both at the top of the ranking in the coming future - let's say, after Andy and Nole.

I see Uncle Toni has tipped Janowicz as the future No. 1. I take it JJ has yet to bad mouth Nadal or at least has yet to refer Nadal as “some Nadal”

Janowicz future #1.

Not been referred to yet, I see Kevin Anderson as a future top 10 player. He's been pretty solid this year.

He's also 24. Winning his 1st Slam is probably more within reach. This is no WTA after all.

Lol, good old Uncle Toni - always willing to offer gems like this to the press! No doubt JJ will soon have something to say about Nadal too to complete the set!

Anderson is 26. 27 next week.

Top 20 is probably his ceiling.

When Gaudio won his first and only RG in 2004, I don't think he was ranked within top 20. What about Ivanisevic? I don't think he was ranked anywhere near top 20 when he won his first and only Wimbledon. So I think winning a Slam is more doable than becoming No. 1. I have no idea what Uncle Toni is smoking these days. Not that he had ever smoked anything legal to begin with.

Wha.. what? Where has this come from? Anderson isn't going to do either. I.. what?

Oh, you're talking about Janowicz. Not sure why you quoted my post about Anderson. Also, Janowicz is 22. He's not going to win a Slam either.

But on that subject.. yes of course winning a Slam is more doable than being #1. Because you need to win a Slam to GET TO #1. Unless it's the WTA of course.

Actually on ATP you can get to No 1 without a Slam. A prime example of this is Marcelo Rios in 1998.
