Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

He may be a beneficiary of hitting his prime during a transition period in the sport. That would give him an opportunity to sneak one at the US Open.

Maybe in 5 years when the top 4 are dying down.

Canadian crack. Nothin' beats it.

3 slams. Fwaaah, that's good stuff.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

someone must win these slams, fed, rafa and djok (and delpo) cant play forever.

even he is 20, I think raonic will win a slam in the future simply because there arent any other ultra talented players in sight.

reliability...

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

Its understandable guys, but think about this: In the next 3-4-5 years Fedal will be old, Djokovic may be out of his prime, and Murray could be his usual slamless self. Then we have Del Potro- Who might win many more if he is healthy. Then- We have the transition period with the youngsters. That includes MAINLY Dimitrov, Berankis, Raonic, Kudla, Harrison, Marti, and Tomic to a smaller extent. If the current generation will be old/out of their prime, it means that either the youngsters above or a completely new young star will win the smals. Its obvious.
If we look at the transition eras in between great players- There are some questionable results: Costa wins RG, Johansson wins AO, Clement reaching finals, Baghdatis reaching finals, Kuerten winning RG THREE times. Think about it.

FEDERER
KARLOVIC

RAONIC

AND ALL OTHER SERVEBOTS


SERVEBOTS ARE TENNIS

Maybe not in sight now, but in 5 years, who knows? His chances look slim unless he improves a lot in the meantime.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
