Djokovic`s a sure bet!!

the others are a bit dodgy but one of them might manage to get lucky.

It doesn't suck. But its not the best either.

Actually the poll didn't show up when I first looked at it but now it does.

Re: Which of these players will win a slam?

anyway from those 9 Djokovic looks a sure pick, Murray and Gasquet very likely; from the others i dont see main candidates

When you post the thread it asks you to create the poll afterwards.

Oh, and it's not the best thread no, but not so bad to be rude-sarcasm worthy.

Gasquet very likely but Berdych not a main candidate? Why so? As it happens I voted for Gasquet and not Berdych as well but I would say that was just a bit of a guess, perhaps yours is the same but if not I would enjoy hearing your reasoning.

Re: Which of these players will win a slam?

Djokovic, Murray, and Gulbis are very good bets


everyone else seems like semi-finals and out material, especially Berdych

Gasquet could sneak one or two in somewhere

Re: Which of these players will win a slam?

I think Djokovic,Gasquet and Murray will all three win at least 1 GS.
For the others,i'm far from being sure.

Re: Which of these players will win a slam?

The only safe bet on that list is Fakervic. Theres no point in predicting the rest as they are either too crap or too mentally unstable to predict.

Murray is certainly talented and not particularly mentally unstable.

Probably because Berdych,despite being one year older than Gasquet,has overall achieved less things than him(yeah he won 1 MS but there was no Federer and Nadal in this MS....whereas Gasquet made 2 MS finals but he had to play Federer in both of them) .

Re: Which of these players will win a slam?

Djokovic is the one I'd say will most certainly win at least one slam. Murray, I'm not yet convinced with him. Mentally and physically he needs to mature before I'd put him in a possible slam champion category. He has the talent...but talent stands next to nothing if you don't have mental strength and stamina. He needs to win one of the Masters Series titles first, and then I'm sure he'll get confidence needed to reach slam finals on regular basis and possibly win one.

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

Hes still remarkably inconsistent and a bit immature at times. The body language he had against Baggy in last year's Wimbledon was a disgrace and he practially gave up. Hes also lacking a big weapon which can win him some easy points. Hes got potential and it will be interesting to see how he develops.
