Dan Martin’s 2012 Power Rankings for the
Week of June 18 through June 24
1. Rafael Nadal – A French Open title, two Masters 1000 titles and 3 consecutive wins over Nole have Rafa holding the top spot.
2. Novak Djokovic – Not playing a Wimbledon tune-up was a smart move in 2011.
3. Roger Federer – His loss to Haas was a bit puzzling, but Roger did get 4 warm-up matches in before Wimbledon.
4. David Ferrer – His semifinal showing in Paris has Ferrer at #4.
5. Juan Martin del Potro – How well Delpo moves and how healthy he is will determine his Wimbledon run.
6. Tomas Berdych – If you are looking for a Wimbledon dark horse Berdych is a good candidate. In 2010, he beat Federer and Djokovic at SW19. Berdych has been solid in 2012 and will benefit from the surface change.
7. Andy Murray – What has happened to Andy’s promising start to 2012? Andy losing early at Queen’s Club was strange.
9. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Last year’s run began with a solid outing at Queen’s Club. His showing this year was not solid.
10. Tommy Haas – I am not sure if he will stay here, but Haas had a lot of big wins at Halle. He beat 5 time champion Roger Federer, beat Tomas Berdych and clipped the defending champion. His reward a top 10 slot for the week. Change from Last Week- Unranked
