Power Ranking for the Week of May 14 – May 20

Dan Martin’s 2012 Power Rankings for the

Week of May 14 through May 20

(a lot of changes from the last few weeks)

1.  Novak Djokovic – Novak is the number one player in the world, but the next few months will be interesting.

2. Roger Federer – Titles in Dubai, Rotterdam, Indian Wells and Madrid have Roger Federer surging in the computer rankings an in my 2012 Power Ranking.  Change from last week +1

3.  Rafael Nadal – Rafa seems very negative in his demeanor and verbiage this season.  I think he can harness anger in the short term to some success, but it does not seem like a formula for long-term success.  Change from last week – 1

4. Juan Martin del Potro – Winning Estoril and making a solid run in Madrid have JMDP moving ahead of Andy Murray in my eyes.  Change from last week + 1

5.  Andy Murray –  Missing Madrid assured a drop.  Change from last week – 1

6. Tomas Berdych – Big Berd crushed Monfils and Verdasco  He then beat JMDP in a cole match before losing a tight final to Federer.  Both Berdych and JMDP have to be considered second tier title contenders in Paris.  Change from last week +2
7.  David Ferrer – Rome offers one more chance to topple the guys ahead of him before Paris.  Change from last week – 1
8.  Nicolas Almagro – He is still not quite a second tier contender on the dirt.  Change from last week – 1

9. Gilles Simon – Solid enough to be #9 on the countdown.

10.  Janko Tipsarevic – Tipsy upset Nole and reached the Madrid semifinal round.  That is enough to enter the top 10.  Change from last week – Not Ranked

Dropped Out – Milos Raonic

Mover of the Week – Tomas Berdych +2

    I am sorry that I can’t get spaces between all of the players listed. I keep fixing it in the edit mode and then the page does not reflect the changes I made.
