I was asked this the other day, my response was Marin Cilic. Why? I don’t believe he’ll be able to come close to winning another Slam nor do I think he’ll be able to finish ahead of guys like Juan Martin Del Potro, Grigor Dimitrov and possible even David Ferrer.
That said, I think Ferrer could also be in danger. So outside of the Big Four my most likely are in order (Cilic being the most likely, Raonic the least)…
Cilic: I just don’t buy him being a stable Top 10 guy.
Ferrer: Can outlast just about anything but age; will need a good start to 2015.
Wawrinka: He won’t defend his Australian Open title, but he played well enough in London to show me his second half of 2014 wasn’t a total bust.
Nishikori: A healthy Nishikori will be a member of the Top 10 for many years, but an unhealthy one?
Berdych: Won’t win the Big One, but plays consistent enough year-in, year-out to stay in the Top 10.
Raonic: A big Slam result (a final?) could break him into the Top 5.
