Predict the 2016 EOY Top 10

Quote

Here's a game that I have absolutely no chance of winning. Predict the end-of-year ATP men's top ten.

One point for naming a top-tenner; three points for the correct position.

Deadline: start of the Aussie Open on 17th Jan.

I'm going with:

1 Djokovic
2 Murray
3 Wawrinka
4 Nadal
5 Federer
6 Nishikori
7 Kyrgios
8 Ferrer
9 Berdych
10 Thiem

My initial thoughts were that Berdych and Ferrer might drop out of the top ten, but I can't think of anyone who's ready to replace them.  It's tricky.

Can't believe neither of you picked Nick the Dick. Got a horrible feeling he's going to be big this year. Maybe Aussie final?

Hmm, well I can see him making the 10 ten for sure but can he do it this year?  Not sure.  He's currently #30.  Jumping 20 places is not impossible but I can see his results continuing to be mixed.  He's looking good right now because I think he gets a lot of confidence from playing for a team and country but put him out there solo and he has spectacular meltdowns.  Unless, of course, that is all behind him now...  We shall see.

My new entry was Kevin Anderson because I was so impressed with his improvements last year.  But who knows!

At least he offers something different. I could see him stretching Novak on a good day.

  It would need to be a bad day for Djokovic at the same time though....

He would need to have been hit with a tranquiliser dart on the morning of the event and then intravenously injected with Tequila. But who knows. Stranger things have happened.

Fed
Rafa
Kei
Berd
Milos
Nick K

Umming and aaaarring about the last one because I think Ferrer has one last season in the top 10  in him, but I really want to see some "new faces" up there. Agree about Anderson as well, he cerainly has a chance.
