ATP race

One Slam, a couple of important tournaments, and a couple of masters remain before the big Shanghai showdown in November. It’s still early to predict exactly who will make it, but I believe this is a strong list of the top 8 in 2007.

1. Roger Federer (passing nadal after US Open)
2. Rafael Nadal
3. Novak Djokovic (over 200 points ahead of #4, he needs to mess up to lose this spot)
4. Andy Roddick (battles with Davydenko, but US Open should give him more than Davydenko)
5. Nikolay Davydenko (plays more than Roddick and can stil get a few titles before the Cup)
6. James Blake (last year, Blake got most points in the fall, could happen again)
7. Fernando Gonzalez (good on hard courts, maybe a good QF run at the Open)
8. Mikhail Youzhny (for rankings he needs to defend a SF at the Open, but he’ll get past the spaniards and Ljubicic in the race)
