Re: Who will end their Grand Slam hoodo first: France or Great Britain???

In the next four years or so Murray will have the best chance above pretty much all the French but if I was being nationalistic then I would much rather be in Frances position. Mainly because of the sheer amount of players in the top 100 plus young guns coming through. Past Murray it looks bleak for us Brits in the coming years unfortunately.

Gilles Simon
Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Murray will eventually win Wimbledon after Fedal.
Yeah, Federer could win this even in his 30s, and Nadal is playing so good in the green clay of the Final rubbers of Wimbledon

Actually I got a good question.

Who is more likely to win a slam in the future? Andy Murray or the aging Roger Federer? Roger's 17th slam might never come at this point and Murray's 1st slam isn't looking likely either.

Monfils will win Roland Garros in 2013, 30 years after Yannick Noah, perfect timing

France because they have a GS and literally do anything in their power to help French players (Fog-Mugfils anyone) Especially because once Nadull gets worse/injured at the FO it's anyone's game and I could see one of the french mugs winning.

GB only has Murray while France has:

Tsonga, Monfils, Simon, and Gasquet. It's hilarious how France has so many "good" Tennis players but they always fall just short of the top 10. rofl

Mugray isn't winning a slam anytime soon, so probably France.

Neither. France has a lot of talent but not champions, Britain=no talents,no champions.

Tsonga has zero chance to win a slam, he will need knee surgery or continue to fall in the ranking. Monfils is no match for the top player. Gasquet only wants to reach top 10 as of now. Murray will react someday.

We have more players than UK but none of them is able to win GS....
Noah's win in 1983 was probably a fluke

France has more depth but Murray is better than Tsonga IMO. Mind you, JW has won a set in a GS final, so who knows...
