Power Ranking for the Week of May 7 – May 13


Dan Martin’s 2012 Power Rankings for the

Week of May 7 through May 13

1.  Novak Djokovic – Novak is the number one player in the world, but he will face challenges to remain number one in 2012.

2. Rafael Nadal – He is the greatest ever on clay.  Can he master blue clay in an elevated location?

3.  Roger Federer – Fed’s 2012 titles in Dubai, Rotterdam and Indian Wells have him ranked number three.

4.  Andy Murray –  Missing Madrid almost assures a drop next week.

5. Juan Martin del Potro – Delpo wins Estoril and enters my top five.  Change since last week +1

6.  David Ferrer – Can he win on the azul?  Change since last week – 1

7.  Nicolas Almagro – Could emerge from some shadows with a Madrid win or a strong showing at least.

8.  Tomas Berdych – Berdych is still in my top eight.

9. Gilles Simon – A solid week in Monte Carlo followed by a title has Simon rising. 

10.  Milos Raonic – The big kid has won two titles in 2012, been runner-up at another and just logged two strong wins on clay before losing a close match to David Ferrer.

  1. Delpo had an impeccable week.

    1. Dan Martin says:

      I agree. I think he can contend at RG and the USO.

  2. So what happened to Tsonga?

    1. Dan Martin says:

      I think he will climb when the surfaces get faster, but this ranking looks at 2012 only and to this point he has not been at the level he ended 2011 on. I love his game so I hope he bounces back.
