Is no one else capable of winning and stopping this 4 man race?

Its been Murray, Djokovic, Nadal and Fed for so long now and we got the same thing here at the french. Obviously these are the 4 best players in the world and have been for a quite long time now..


Is there no one else to finally put an end this 4 man domination show that we have seen for the last 3-4 years. No one else capable of winning outside of these 4?

Del Potro.

No this isn't a weak era and Sampras was a clown on clay.

What 4 man race? What did Murray do to deserve to be among elite?

Anyway, the answer to your question is Del Potro. I expect he'll be above Muzza before the end of the year. Then we'll have 4 man race.

He has F and SF (with a chance to advance) in two slams this year... I'm not a big fan of the guy, but he deserves it.

Only Del Potro but he needs to improve his ranking first to avoid encounters with these guys in majors before the last 16. It's impossible to do it before Wimbledon but who knows, maybe during the US Open he will be a Top 8 player

JMDP healthy can on hardcourts, obviously. He has shown nothing on clay or grass.

Del Potro is nothing more than a glorified Gaston Gaudio at this moment in time.

Re: Is no one else capable of winning and stopping this 4 man race?

poor set_Sampras... he realizes that this era is going to eventually have multiple guys with multiple slams (fed/nadal/potro/djokervic. and even murray).

And in the future, everyone will be saying how this was a great era... while sampras won in an era of shit competition and a unmotivated agassi.

Sampras still could not reach even ONE french open slam final... not even ONE.

Feds got how many, 8 sfs?

Murray has 0 slams. What are you talking about?
