Tell us the correct order (or close enough) the men’s Top 10 will finish in on the ATP World Tour Rankings for 2017 and win a fabulous Tennis-X prize package!


The year 2016 was a tough one between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal sidelined with injury and the unforeseen ascension of Andy Murray to the No. 1 ranking.

In the end seven players tied with eight of the 10 year-end Top 10 correct, and it came down to the tiebreak procedure (most players in their correct positions) to determine the winner — Jaq Shivam!

It’s easy, just list your Top 10 in the comments section below, such as:

1. The guy who looks the guy in the headless horseman story
2. The muscle-ly guy with bad knees
3. That old guy who likes chocolate
4. That weird kid
5. That other weird kid
6. Le Clown
7. One of those tall guys who are always injured
8. The other guy from the chocolate country
9. Lendl’s illegitimate son
10. That guy who kisses chicks in clubs that just did blow

Except use real names. If we can’t recognize your entry, it will be your loss. And list 10 names. Seriously. Last year a couple people thought they didn’t need to number them, and only entered nine. And feel free to break down your picks with some comments, like “Roger will win three Slams!” or “Roger will win Acapulco!”

Post your Top 10 IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW before the first ball is hit in the 2017 season, and you’re in! No entry fee required! Good luck and happy holidays!
NOTE: Only your first entry will be accepted.

I like Kimberly’s choices overall but I made a few changes.
Just a feeling that Nadal is going to win the FO this year. La decima.
Not sure what to do with Delpo. He’s a mystery…
Novak getting back to #1 is hopeful thinking but also knowing he doesn’t have much to defend in the latter part of the year, when he usually soars, bodes well.
We’ll see.


Craig K Says:

1. Andy ‘it’s my time’ Murray
2. Novak ‘still great’ Djokovic
3. Milos ‘getting better’ Raonic
4. Rafa ‘back to near best for the red stuff’ Nadal
5. Kei ‘needs more than winners’ Nishikori
6. Dominic ‘still playing everywhere’ Thiem
7. Stan ‘big matches only’ Wawrinka
8. Roger ‘legend’ Federer
9. Nick ‘grow up’ Kyrgios
10. Marin ‘inconsistent’ Cilic

Would love to see Zverev close though

I was tempted to add Zverev the younger or Pouille to the top 10 but think they may end up just outside (now watch them both end up in the top 5). I would have picked DelPo to be in the top 10 if he wasn’t skipping the first part of the year. After 2 years of picking Goffin to be in the top 10, I’m not falling for it a 3rd time.
