How long do you think it'll be until we have a year with 4 different slam winners?

The last time we had a year where all four slams were won by different players was 2003 (Agassi, Ferrero, Federer, Roddick). Now that we seem to be in an era where a select few players dominate, when do you think it'll happen again?

rod laver had it more easier to win 4 slams in different slam tourney, but it a very difficult task to achieve something like what rod did, but todays game its much much more difficult because the game is at another level so i dunno if anyone is gonna achieve something what rod laver did in 2 years

You're about as useful as a one-legged man at an arse kicking contest.

Re: How long do you think it'll be until we have a year with 4 different slam winners

hehe good question, tough to answer for sure.

for some, disappointing, would be to have novak, rafa, fed and murray win them next year.

anyway, top 4 as solid as ever, incapable rest and lack of young stars, make it not as unlikely scenario.

reliability...

I honestly miss those times when we had 4 different slam winners. Tennis was extremely interesting back then.

I'd like to see a year with 4 different slam winners but i think we will have to wait some years for that to happen

Re: How long do you think it'll be until we have a year with 4 different slam winners

I say 2012.
Nole won't be able to dominate as this year, Federer will get another slam I'm quite sure, Nadal should win RG and finally it should be time for Murray to win a slam, I think.
Maybe also Tsonga wins a slam instead of Murray but I think these 5 are the only contenders for next year (at least how it looks like right now).

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4
