.... beyond the established folks (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, also Murray since the US Open).

Del Potro, Gulbis, Simon look promising as the year begins. Davydenko may be in for a comeback. Any others?

Ernie at Wimby.
Ali at Wimby.
Maybe Almugro at RG.

You never know about Nalbandian.
Roddick still has a couple good runs left in him.

But you think Davydenko will factor in at the slams when he's never been a factor to begin with?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Well he's made to 4 GS SFs in his career, I think he's good for a couple more.

Davydenko has been the same for ages, I really can´t see him suddenly being a threat. He´s a solid QF-player. With a maximum performance, he might reach the semis in AO or US Open, but I doubt it.

Re: Players who'll make it big at the Slams in 2009

the Gooch will win AO+US and King Oscar will win RG+Wimbly

surprised Tsonga hasn't been mentioned yet, he is a force to reckon with (if inspired by the crowd).
