Who is Playing in the Men's Singles Tournament?
Take a guess? You already know Rafael Nadal is in that party as well as Novak Djokovic. The two have been the sport's most dominant players, primarily Nadal who raked at the French Open (as usual) and at the U.S. Open. If tennis needed one guy back it was Nadal. If opponents did not need somebody back, it was Nadal.
The ideal matchup for the championship would be Djokovic and Nadal, but they will have to get by these other players in order to meet in the Finals in London.
The rankings are as follows:
3) Andy Murray with 5,790 points
4) David Ferrer: 5,380
5) Juan Martin del Potro: 5,055
6) Tomas Berdych: 3,890
7) Roger Federer: 3,625
8) Stanislas Wawrinka: 3,330
9) Richard Gasquet: 3,210
10) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 3,065
So scratch at Murray, who will sit out the championship as he continues to recover from his injuries. Ferrer, del Potro, Berdych and Federer are in for sure, giving them tournament six of the eight required players. The bottom third of the bracket has yet to take shape. Wawrinka's lead over Gasquet is fairly slim and Tsonga can still make a run.
