2014 Tennis-X Year-end Top 10 Contest — Enter Now!

You think you have the right stuff? Rafa will be No. 1 again — or crash out the Top 10 when both kneecaps explode? Roger returns to No. 1? Or drops out of the Top 10 altogether? Boris Becker turns Novak into a serve-and-volleyer on clay to take No. 1 in 2014? Better chance of that, or another Becker illegitimate kid surfacing? But that’s another contest.

Tell us your order the Top 10 will finish in next year and win a fabulous Tennis-X prize package.

No one picked the entire Top 10 in 2013 (thanks Stan Wawrinka!), but you can be the one this year to be touted in the winner’s story while basking in the glow of your superior tennis knowledge, or plain dumb luck.

Tell us your Top 10, for example:

1. The guy who wrote a book about how evil gluten is
2. The guy with magic knees
3. That Swiss guy — you know, the one with hair…what’s his name?
4. The rich kid who solicits prostitutes
5. The guy who hates needles and avoids the drug testers
6. That American kid that throws his racquet
7. The guy who plays a tournament every week without rest
8. That tall guy
9. That even taller guy
10. That dude that looks like Icabod Crane

Except use real names, their full names. Seriously, if we can’t figure out who the hell you’re talking about, we’ll throw out your entry. Post your Top 10 IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW before the first ball is hit in the 2014 season, and you’re in! No entry fee required! Good luck and happy holidays!

NOTE: Only your first entry will be accepted.

Gosh! I hope that my top 10 picks for 2014 are not too late to be considered….in that case, I apologize to TX for being late and pleading to consider my picks….pls-pls-pls :(

I think Muzza will miss out on no.1 pretty close….he will have a great year.

Nole will be solid too….I think he will complete his career slam in 2014.

Nadal, I feel will hav a grt clay season as usual….but defending a mountain load of points post that is looking very very tough. He vl b a force in AO & Wimby….but I think he vl miss out the FO dis time.

Roger probably will benefit from his lacklustre season in 2013 by not defending much points. He vl gradually raise his game n confidence. I believe, he can win a slam in 2014.

Tennis X Hippy Chic Says:

Seems the majority are going with Novak ending next year at the top of the rankings,i see the reasoning as i suppose it will be dificult for Rafa to back up what he did this year,he will have a mountain of points to defend after March next year,still if he were to win a GS or two i doubt even he or his fans would really care TBH.


courbon Says:

Merry Christmas Hippy!


Tennis X Hippy Chic Says:

Courbon dont forget to fill out your top 10 for next years contest.


holdserve Says:

Defending points is irrelevant to year end no. 1 as it depends not on performance of previous year but entirely on points won in the current year. However, the 52 week rolling ranking is influenced by defense of points.
As the contest is asking for year end rankings, you will agree defending zero points or mountain of points are equally irrelevant to predicting the year end no. 1 for 2014.
I do believe predicting Novak as year end no. 1 is based more on wishful thinking than on objective analysis.
Djokovic himself has had his confidence shaken otherwise he wouldn’t be hiring Becker hoping to get that elusive something which enabled Becker to win 5 setters.
Many seem to think Djokovic’s astounding performance post USO means he has rediscovered how to beat Rafa.
But Rafa is never at his best in the fall season and further his knee problems which had him crashing out in the early rounds of Wimbledon 2 years in succession perhaps also accounted for his losses as the indoor hard court is low bouncing.
Even Novak despite his gumby body was burnt out after USO in 2011 and Rafa’s fall in performance is therefore not surprising. It was only because Rafa saw the chance to be no. 1 after USO that he was motivated in the fall.Compared to the usual post USO Rafa performance,his fall performance was pretty good.


Bad Knee Rules Says:

———-
perhaps also accounted for his losses as the indoor hard court is low bouncing.
———-
Not true.
It was two indoor and two outdoor tournaments with four different surfaces (different speed and bounce).


the DA Says:

Merry Christmas tennis-xers. Hopefully in 2014 we can focus more on tennis…..yeah, well, one can hope ;)

Photos have surfaced showing Andy, Jo-Willy and Nole practicing. Just one day remaining until we get to see some tennis!

@ DA: Focus more on tennis on this blog??? You should not smoke dope on Christmas Day-very unchristian…(-:


holdserve Says:

Bad knee, it was still post USO when Rafa is not at his best. I did not say anywhere that fall season is indoor hard court.


Margot Says:

Very Happy New Year wishes to all on TX with whom I’ve exchanged pleasantries in 2013 and special New Year hugs to Andy Murray fans. Hoping our man has a gr8 2014.
Lol folks, remember it’s “staff” who write the “Trunk and Funk” …..ahem, stuff.
