ATP Power Ranking 2010

ATP Power Rankings: Step Up or Slide

Robin Soderling
Taking time off from the ATP Tour may be a wise move for players in the long run, but it won't help in the FanHouse Power Rankings.

As players settle down from Wimbledon and prepare for the upcoming U.S. Open, it's not easy to find the proper balance of playing U.S. Open Series events to tune up for Flushing and taking time off to give their bodies much-needed rest. We understand the need for both, but nobody's climbing up our rankings without proving it on the court.

So without further ado, below are the FanHouse ATP Power Rankings:
  • 1. Rafael Nadal | Record: 47-5 | Previous Power Ranking: 1 | ATP: 1
    Rafa doesn't need to play in every tournament to prove he's the best in the world right now. If you're not convinced he's No. 1, well you're crazy, but check out his off-the-chart numbers this season: In 2010, he's 47-5, has won 31 out of his last 32 matches and five out of the last six tournaments (including two majors) he's entered.
  • 2. Robin Soderling | Record: 32-12 | Previous Power Ranking: 3 | ATP: 5
    Soderling didn't sit back after his Wimbledon quarterfinals loss and rest and recover. No, he entered the Bastad tournament in his home country of Sweden and made it to the finals, losing in three sets to Nicolas Almagro.
  • 3. Tomas Berdych | Record: 32-12 | Previous Power Ranking: 2 | ATP: 8
    Berdych hasn't played since losing to Nadal in the Wimbledon final, but he's proven he can swing with the big boys by beating the likes of Federer and Djokovic. After Wimbledon, the big-serving Czech reached his highest ATP ranking at No. 8.
  • 4. Roger Federer | Record: 31-9 | Previous Power Ranking: 4 | ATP: 3
    Federer's quarterfinal loss to Berdych at Wimbledon was one of the sloppier matches we've seen from the former world No. 1. After Wimbledon, he fell to No. 3 in the ATP rankings for the first time since 2003. History shows Federer is a proven winner, but he hasn't won a tournament this year since the Australian Open in January.
  • 5. Novak Djokovic | Record: 29-10 | Previous Power Ranking: 5 | ATP: 2
    Never one to skirt duties to play for the flag, the Djoker carried the Serbs past Croatia in the Davis Cup quarters, winning both of his singles matches in straight sets. Despite some struggles with his serve this season, his semifinal appearance at Wimbledon was enough to pass Federer as the ATP's No. 2 ranked player.
  • 6. Andy Murray | Record: 22-10 | Previous Power Ranking: 6 | ATP: 4
    Murray is only going to play two U.S. Open Series tournaments. He'll attend the Rogers Masters tournament in Toronto and the Masters tournament in Cincinnati to warm up for the U.S. Open, where he only made it to the fourth round last year.
  • 7. Albert Montanes | Record: 26-15 | Previously Unranked | ATP: 24
    This Spaniard made it to the third round of both Grand Slam tournaments this summer and then followed that with a win at Stuttgart where he beat three top-25 players; Jurgen Melzer, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Gael Monfils.
  • 8. David Ferrer | Record: 38-13 | Previous Power Ranking: 8 | ATP: 12
    Ferrer wrapped up his clay-court season by making it to the semifinals at Bastad, where he lost to Robin Soderling. This marks the second time he's been knocked out of a tournament by Soderling in less than a month.
  • 9. Jurgen Melzer | Record: 28-16 | Previous Power Ranking: 7 | ATP: 15
    After decent showings in the two summer majors, Melzer followed up with a trip to the quarterfinals at the MercedesCup Stuttgart, Germany. Though he lost to the eventual champion, Albert Montanes, Melzer's losses at Wimbledon and Roland Garros came from two premier players in Nadal and Federer.
  • 10. Mardy Fish | Record: 24-11 | Previously Unranked | ATP: 49
    Mardy Fish had one hell of a grass-court season, winning more matches on grass than anyone else on tour and reaching the finals in two of his last three tournaments. He won in Newport and lost to Sam Querrey at Queen's Club, with a disappointing second-round loss at Wimbledon in the middle.
