In my last poll I asked what ATP player will most likely exit the Top 10, with Marin Cilic (32%) and David Ferrer (25%) leading the way in the voting. So now the question is what players will most likely replace them?
Some names (ranking) and thoughts:
Juan Martin Del Potro (137) – coming off wrist surgery, if he can put together a full, healthy year he’s almost a shoe-in!
Grigor Dimitrov (11) – For some reason I feel like No. 8 is his ceiling. He’ll have QF Australia and Acapulco title points to defend early on.
JW Tsonga (12) – Under a bit of an injury cloud entering 2015, and had just six match wins since his Canadian title.
Ernests Gulbis (13) – Can he back up his best career season? Like Tsonga also fell off in the second half winning just 9 matches following his French SF.
Roberto Bautista Agut (15) – 2014 most improved or breakout player, but is he a real Top 10 threat?
Other with a shot: John Isner, Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon, Richard Gasquet, David Goffin and maybe Dominic Thiem.
I didn’t mention Robredo, Lopez and Anderson because I don’t see any of them with that kind of staying power.
My pick: Del Potro!
