Re: Who all among the following players will end up slam-less in their careers?

Tsonga is going to win Australian open and Cilic will win 2+ slams. Tomic I think could win one, Söderling will surprise in USOPEN/Wimbledon this year or next. This really is wild speculation from my side, probably only Cilic is going to win one in that list. At some point Federer must step aside and let this players win some slams, or will he in this generation?

Murray will go slamless, another wild speculation from my side. I think he is in his peak now, at 24+ he will be all wasted and injuries will plague his career. His game allows players who are on a hot streak (they always exist in slams) to really beat the crap out of him.

Murray and Cilic odds on to win one or more
Soderling 50/50 chance
Tomic 10-1 against
Rest no hope no way nada

Young, Simon and Tomic.

I feel the rest of them can win a GS, it's just each need to fix a few things with themselves...

Re: Who all among the following players will end up slam-less in their careers?

Is anyone going to vote for Simon or Young to win a slam?

That would be truly silly, Young possibly wont even get past Rd3 in a slam. Simon is going downhill fast (like most pushers do) from his shortlived not too spectacular peak.

Berdych actually has the potential, if he gets thing together like Söderling did last year (Berdych is 1 year younger than Söderling, so this is the time for him).

Don't know about the rest, but if bad-tooth mugray wins a slam, tennis should be officially renamed "pusher vampire" sport.
But i have a feeling the holy spirit of tennis and Simon Reed will never allow such a calamity to occur.

I have seen him at his best outplay Federer and Nadal. Berdych has potential as in if everything goes his way and he gets his head together. Thomas Johansson won a grand slam, dont you remember?

If Berdych gets a good draw in lets say the Australian open he could win there. I would say he is 1/10 to win a grand slam in his career.

Exactly, and like u said, he's only 24 atm, so he's still got a few years to have a go at it.

Re: Who all among the following players will end up slam-less in their careers?

Out of all those I'd say Cilic has the highest chance, Murray second with pretty high chances. Tomic is too early to tell, Davydenko is running out of time. Soderling in Wimbledon/USO maybe if he can avoid Federer in a draw for once. Out of the rest only Tsonga got a decent chance.
