Roger has been on top for 214 consecutive weeks but his balance there is a little off right now.
Justine was there most of last year. She dropped out for a little while in the beginning of the year.

Will either one drop out even for a brief period this year? and who will take their place?
Nadal and Djokovic of course have a shot in points and with the clay court season coming up Rafa looks pretty good. Murray and Nalbandian would have to be considered and who else?

For the women, Maria hasn't lost yet this year and looks great. The Williams seem more serious about giving it a go. Davenport has a chance and of course those serbian ladies Jelena and Ana. Anyone else have a shot?

Post your vote in a comment and we will see who is the best prognosticator.

Who's # 1

With Andy having knocked off Nadal and Djokovic at Dubai I can't help but wonder about his chances of moving up.  Clay is still his biggest challenge so you would think he can't move up much since he has to play some warm up clay tournaments to get ready for the French.  It still seems like Novak has the best all around game for most surfaces - just like the Fed man himself.  Don't get me wrong about Roger.  I don't think he is gone by a long shot.  I just think everyone is entitled to a slump every four years or so.  If he does lose the top slot I picture his coming back by the time the U.S. open rolls around.

I think Federer will drop out of number 1 at some point this year. Nadal doesn't lose early in tournaments anymore and should win the French again which will put him in a dead heat with Federer for that number 1 spot or he could even take it from him following the Slam. If Nadal will be able to hold onto it through the Masters series and then the final 2 Grand Slams is a big if but i like to think that this will be the year that nadal over takes Federer at Wimbledon which he should have won last year if it wasn't for his knees.

As for the women Justine is too far away and well she will probably win the french as well. Justine also hasn't dropped out of that number 1 spot since sometime in 2006 i dont see her giving it up anytime soon.
