4 Players we may not see in Top 10 in 2015


The official ATP and WTA tour have ended and now every tennis player is looking forward to this two months break before Christmas and then the scorchy Australian summer in 2015 January. But we are looking forward now to the year 2015 which is fast approaching. Looking at the current form of 4 good and talented players and of course with their past performances and their way of playing tennis, we believe that they may lose their place in either WTA or in ATP rankings Top 10 players list at some point of time in 2015. It will be a huge struggle for them to get back in if they at all go out as per our prediction. Let us know who are these 5 players we are talking about and why we think that they may not be in Top 10 consistently in 2015.

4 Players we may not see them in Top 10 in 2015

Eugenie Bouchard

She has been a find of women’s tennis to say the least. She has been the WTA Breakthrough Player of the Year in 2013. In 2014 she achieved the WTA Most Improved Player of the Year and she has been the first Canadian tennis player to break in to Top 5 WTA Rankings, since these rankings have started. If Eugenie Bouchard is the most improved player of 2014 then why she would not be able to repeat the feat in 2015? Well because the way she has played during the second half of the year especially the way she played in the Grand Slam tournaments. Yes she has reached one final and two semis in this year’s four grand slams but then she has fell flat at very decisive moments in these matches and not only that she repeated the same during the important WTA tournaments like was in Wuhan. All in all what Eugenie Bouchard needs is to look at her game positively and come afresh in 2015 else with the form she has carried in last few months, she may find herself well outside the Top 10 rankings.

David Ferrer

The age is catching up with this most talented player in the ATP circuit. He will be 33 next year in April and Roger Federer is already 33 so one can understand the problem of Ferrer. He doesn’t have that powerful game or powerful serve which can tern any game in his favor and with age catching up and right now standing in the second half of the Top 10 Rankings David Ferrer may be the first casualty of 2015 who will slipped out of Top 10. With youngsters like Kei Nishikori putting their best more often than not, David Ferrer, even if he repeats his performance of this year of playing 26 ATP tournaments, most by any player then too it will be hard for him to be in Top 10 with a consistent amount of time.

Marin Cilic

Yes, he has won his first ever US Open Grand Slam this year by defeating the one and only Roger Federer in the semi finals and gave nothing to Nishikori in the finals, yet Marin Cilic may not find him self in the Top 10 list of 2015, simply because there are more talented than him lot is just sniffing his neck. He needs to improve his performances by playing more and more Masters 1000 tournaments and try and make it in quarter finals in the each of the tournaments next year, else players like Grigor Dimitrov, Juan Martin Del Potro will claim their places in Top 10 next year at the expense of Marin Cilic.

Stan Wawrinka

His case is no different than of Marin Cilic. Stan Wawrinka too had won just a one Grand Slam till now, the Australian Open this year and also featured in the Finals of the US Open and WTA Tour Finals in 2013. Despite having not so bad year this year, the form of Stan Wawrinka of late is the thing to worry. One can easily say that Wawrinka is in the Top 10 because he won 2000 ranking points by winning the Australian Open this year. It will be necessary for him to reach at least at a quarter final stage in every grand slam tournament of 2015 to earn at least 1640 points more, should he wants to stay in the Top 10. Mind you we have not counted other players performance in this so few tournaments win by any other player below his rankings here and there, Stan Wawrinka may find himself out of the Top 10.
