Re: Who will be next to win a GS? Djokovic or Murray?

Too bad there is a neither option, Delpo too good on a fast hard court, Roger too good on a slower hard court, Nadal too good on clay, Roger almost unbeatable and Wimbledon.

Only way these guys win a slam, if they get extremely lucky. I am talking about this season of course, there time will come, but their games need to go even further and improve, they get into bad habits of becoming too defensive in matches when they are ahead.

Re: Who will be next to win a GS? Djokovic or Murray?

Very hard to say. I'd probably go with Murray (2010 US Open) because Djokovic hasn't been showing up lately. That is unless Djokovic is still #2 and isn't on Fed's side of the draw again.

Neither as long as Federer is around.

Re: Who will be next to win a GS? Djokovic or Murray?

can't really see Nole winning his 2nd slam or Muzza winning his 1st slam unless someone takes out Federer before the final.

Nole is Fed's whipping boy at the slams (yes I know Nole has done it once in 2008 but since then, he has not done much), and Muzza will not win a slam until he fixes up his 2 main issues (weak 2nd serve, forehand is too short on the defense).

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

AGASSI,RAFTER,SAFIN

Re: Who will be next to win a GS? Djokovic or Murray?

Both are very talented and should win some slams. I just don't think they can beat an in form Federer. If Nadal drops further and has a resurgence, and happens to play Fed in slam semi's or quarters, and beats him, then Novak and Andy will have great chances (I am pretty sure both of them are good enough to take care of Del Potro and Nadal). Of course Davydenko could also benefit a lot if Nadal takes care of Federer.

Del Potro has lost to Murray 4 times on hardcourt, of all different types. So I have to ask, what planet are you living on that makes you think he's "too good" on a fast hardcourt?

I think people here have huge expectations from Del Potro. I am actually surprised some believe, apart from Nadal, he is Federer's biggest challenge (I just hope these guys don't turn their backs on him should he fail to live up to their expectations). I think Federer has played a lot better against Murray on each of the two slam finals as against what he did at US final last year.

And besides, Del Potro has a losing record to not only Federer but also Murray.

Precisely. I'd never wish for someone to play poorly in order for Murray to break through at the slams, but it would have been nice if Federer was as charitable today as he was at the USO last year.

I think Del Potro is a fantastic ball striker and can be lethal when he's on form. He isn't a major obstacle for Murray, though. Federer is the only real obstacle for Murray in the slams. I think he either needs to avoid Federer or beat him before the final.

Its called improvement, the guy has grown by leaps and bounds the last season, if you honestly do not believe Del Potro is not a better player then Murray currently(and that's a big difference i am saying currently) then you are delusional.

Talent and variety is one thing, but it takes mental prowess and actually executing, the guy has a slam to his name, so you can take that little head to head record and store it away in your memory because it does not mean anything when it comes to big matches.

I don't think Del Potro is better than Murray currently and it's not delusional at all. Del Potro had a great USO and is a much better player than he used to be, but the rankings are objective and the true indicator of who's been better over the past year.

Winning a tournament in Canada or winning the US open, hmmm that's a tough choice

You really don't believe the gap between Murray and Del Potro has shrunk? hes the number 4 player in the world, you make him seem like hes not worthy or something.
