Mahut will do well at Queens. Not Wimby though.

If he as fit and healthy, I would go with Kiefer.

Schuettler too, but he's past it unfortunately.

Re: Grass Court Experts- Who Could Cause Most Damage In The Next Few Weeks?

I think Feli has a good run in him. He may not be a grass specialist, but I think Gicquel has a good run in him on grass. Mahut is always dangerous on grass and seems to have good form. I can also see Kiefer doing something, but he has to show he is healthy first.

The fact the grass has slowed down and the bounce has gotten higher is a detriment to players like Fish, Dent, Llodra, Dustin, Mahut whose games is based on the serve. Guys like Rainer or Clement can do damage with their returns and ability to redirect the ball well and counter punch effectively.

Another guy to look out for is Roger-Vasselin. I can see him doing damage at Wimbledon, even though he had a bad loss today.

Yeah, that's a good one. Berrer too. I would say Zverev but he's playing terribly.

This thread was made magic by all of those ridiculous photos you found for each player. Well done!

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

In Wimbledon? I wouldn't bet on it. Equaling his best R3 would be an achievement.

I think Feli and Mahut have good chances.
