It gets easier to pick players likely to rise if you go beyond 50. I would add that I think Tomic (#52) for example will grow up and grow used to the tour a bit this year. He really can't get much worse than he was this year, even if one subtracts his success in Australia.
Okay, then I will throw # 136 Gulbis into the pot. A lot depends on whether he and Bresnik have worked out Ernests' wildly inconsistent forehand problems, and I'm not expecting miracles. Top 50 would be nice, though top 75 is probably a more reasonable expectation after his horrid year, save for those two big upsets in the Slams. I hope Kuznetsov makes progress as well, as I enjoy watching him play. Baker is a good candidate to move up, too.
