Not a chance, unless Olderer reaches a slam final and gifts it to some mug like he did in 2009 USO.

?

JMD beat Federer twice in 2009 and Nadal 3 times. Del Potro at his best plays at a very high level. He is more than a Soderling or a Berdych.

Surely Tsonga or Murray will win one somewhere.

Re: Any first time slam winners next year ?

And to answer the question, I think Federer/Nadal/Djokovic still have a stranglehold on all the slams. I hope someone can at least challenge them to make things interesting. But Murray just collapses. Tsonga is equally inconsistent. Berdych, Soderling, etc. etc. are all so streaky. And I don't think Juan Martin will ever be what he was 2 years ago unfortunately.

Re: Any first time slam winners next year ?

Tsonga, Murray, Ferrer all have chances. del Potro's was a fluke, I have to agree with Nadtards on that...

Re: Any first time slam winners next year ?

Del Potro is obviously going to improve next year, but he has already won a slam.

Realisticly the only threats are Murray and maybe Tsonga.

Maybe some surprise will come at the AO, either a youngster break through or an older player such as Nalbandian will come back and prove everyone wrong. Not so much of a chance but who knows

Re: Any first time slam winners next year ?

only real possibilities I see are maybe Tsonga at Australia, Tomic at WImbledon, or Del Potro at RG/US

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Any first time slam winners next year ?

Well I guess this thread shows how pathetic the 5-20 spot in tennis is these days.. No one giving any other player a snowball's chance in hell of winning a slam next year.


You know how sad this all sounds? ROFL

You can spin it the other way: The top 3 are so good, nobody stands a chance against them. If many 5-20 players have a legitimate chance at a slam, it means it's a mug era with slams being decided on a flip of a coin and no one being able to dominate...

I agree with this.
