Slam predictions for 2011

AO: 2011

Winner: Federer

Reason: Nadal will probably be in clown mode after USO win and won't be as motivated. Federer will be eager to reassert himself on the big stage and prove to everyone he can still win slams. The SF loss in USO will be a huge motivator, I think.

RG: 2011

Winner: Nadal

Reason: Nadal will be anxious to defend his points and will have motivation this time to equal Borg's RG count.

Wimbledon: 2011

Winner: Nadal

Reason: Nadal will once again be anxious to defend his points and capture his favorite grand slam for the third time. Since nobody can play on grass except declining Federer, this Wimbledon is practically a lock.

USO: 2011

Winner: Djokovic

Reason: Djokovic will gather some momentum during HC season and will be extra motivated by his 2010 run. He will work on his fitness and will capture his second grand slam at Flushing Meadows.

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

I know this thread was made out of boredom

But assuming injuries are non-existent and based on player's current forms.
I'll take a random stab. But of course my evaluation will change 1 week before these slams.

AO: 2011

Winner: Djokovic

I think after this U.S. Open loss, he's going to come back hard, and attempt another run. Assuming he's consistent that is. I think Nadal will either lose in the tournament, or he will retire, I think his body will be down during this period, unless somehow it's injuryproof for another 10 months or so. I think Federer will make another close run, and probably lose to Djokovic in a rematch or in the finals.

RG: 2011

Winner: Nadal

I don't see anyone really defeating Nadal here.

Wimbledon: 2011

I think Federer will defeat Nadal here. I think it will be another rematch.
He will be motivated after failing to win the first two.

USO: 2011

I think Djokovic will take this. I liked his hard court game.



But, unfortunately, this thread will become a waste once those tournaments are about to start.
Because my favorites to win or place as runner up will change 100%, because we will witness injuries, inconsistencies, and other forms of feedback to tell us whose more probably to reach those spots.

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

AO:Nadal, RG:Nadal, WIM: Nadal and of course USO:Nadal

he will have 7 consecutive slams, will struggle a bit in AO and WIM though

Federer will continue to decline, Del Potro won't recover fully, Djokovic' form will drop, Roddick will stop being a factor anywhere, Murray will have another slamless year and Soderling will take no 4 but nothing more.

Nobody else is playing tennis.

Oh yeah Marat Safin will return to tennis - selected tournaments only - and make semis of USO, beating Federer on the way
He will be the second most mentally strong player on the tour after Rafa...Santoro will return playing doubles at Wimbledon ( with Benneteau ) & mixed doubles ( with Kournikova ).

Martina Hingis will play an exhibition with Paul Henri Matthieu and beat him in 3 close sets - she will save 5 MP's, marking a rekindling of the "battle of the sexes" argument.

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

wishful thinking that Federer will recover

zero chance. chaps...maybe if Rafa gets mono, he will then be losing to Djokovic and Murray...oh and Montanes will beat him again...Granollers-Pujol to beat Federer in 2011 on clay.

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

Nadal win 4 calendar Slams in a row.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

AO:Rafa/Federer/Djokovic/Murray
RG:Rafa/Federer/Djokovic/Soderling
W:Rafa/Federer/Murray
USO:Rafa/Federer/Djokovic/Murray/del Potro

Probably the exact same predictions that I would have made for this year, aside from having a bit more faith in Djokovic. I would be very suprised if anyone other than these guys won one of the slams, though remains to be seen if Berdych can continue his form he had this year up to Wimbledon.

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

AO: Nadal over Djokovic
Rafa Slam.

FO: Nadal over Del Potro
Del Potro recovery is complete during clay season.

WMB: Del Potro over Federer/Nadal
Del Potro pulls stunner at Wimby with epic ball-bashing.

USO: Federer over Del Potro
Del Potro appears unstoppable on HC until a well-rested Fed exacts surprise revenge with spectacularly improved net game.

Tennis has Great Games & Great Personalities.

We also have Andy Murray.

Re: Slam predictions for 2011

People actually think Del Potro is a threat on grass now I guess we'll see next year, though I still say his movement isn't good enough and he's not a very good net player.
