Jesus, Arsen. Enough already. You get enough attention without creating new threads.

The answer you are looking for is Haas.

Re: Next non-Fedal to win a slam?

i think it could very likely be murray, and i'm not trying to jinx him.

Murray was once asked whether he was a glass half full or glass half empty kind of guy. He replied to his girlfriend "They're both the same. Next question."

That is the most profound thing Tartan Heart has ever said.

In the same video, he was also asked to list his pet hates. Not fully understanding the question, he responded "I don't like snakes."

That is not the most profound statement he has ever made. For more pearls of Scottish wisdom, see below.

Re: Next non-Fedal to win a slam?

don't know if anyone can pull off the impossible

its only been done a handful of times since 2003

roddick
gaudio
safin
djokovic

**************

the only real contender is murray. but whether he will do it is another question. he has a lot of competition. federer is a grass god. in fact probably the best grass courter in history.

Re: Next non-Fedal to win a slam?

Re: Next non-Fedal to win a slam?

murray, followed by nole

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Well, the obvious answer is Murray. He has a great chance in the last 2 slams of the season. I'm generally pretty pessimistic, though.

Re: Next non-Fedal to win a slam?

I'm tired of Federer/Nadal winning slams. I wish Tsonganator would win Wimbly. STOP THE FEDAL NOW!!!
