Re: Most Likely to Threaten the Big 4

At this point with the state of the top 5-10 right now.. Probably Agassi or McEnroe or Sampras.. Hell maybe even Laver.


Nah.. Probably Del Potro if he ever gets 100 percent healthy. The top 4 won't be shook next year.. Its going to take time for these younger guns to mature. Maybe Dolgopolov one day?

Ceteris paribus, Tsonga.

Easy, it going to be Del Potro when he gets back to form after his wrist injury and Tsonga.

Re: Most Likely to Threaten the Big 4

Isn't Tsonga the only player to have beaten ALL of the Top 4 in slams?

The way he beat Novak at AO and Fed at W, not too likely to repeat it

Tomic. Came close to beating the big 3 a few times, or did very well against them and he's only just broken through.

No, but "most likely" is relative, no?

More likely than anyone else. Its not like the matches were donated to him, he had to take it. Few have the balls or the ability.

Tsonga, then del Potro and then Ferrer.

Novak's match was as good as donated, and I doubt that Fed can have such lackluster performance again. Of course, kudos to Tsonga if he takes his chances, but WTF finals showed that he'll have to do better than that. Plus he's going to turn 27 in few months, so time isn't really working for him.

Soderling for sure if he is injury and disease free.

Soderling already cracked the top 4 with over 6K Points and him again when he is back in full gear hopefully..
