Will we see a 3 slam season in 2012?

If recent historys true to form it will be Murrays turn to 3 slam a season out of nowhere.

Thats been the patern, a 3 slam season out of the blue by an out of form player the season before.

Not who or why, just will we see it again?

Even recent seasons that werent 3 slammers were bloody close, 2008, 2009, 2005.

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.

Murray won't win 3 but 1 is not out of the question.

Re: Will we see a 3 slam season in 2012?

it's hard to tell really. Fed is pretty much a lock for wimbledon and US open (Tsonga and Djoko won't replicate their once in a lifetime performances).
At tha AO he's vulnerable to nadal and djoko, but if he carries his form from late 2011 to the AO, he should win it. I say it's 60% chances of winning it.

Same for RG, although I think djoko won't ever be a real threat to him there, he might tire him at best. So fed's hope is for djoko to take out nadal (since nadal might fall to number 3 before RG) and then he can slaughter the serb
Anyway I think he still has a chance to take out nadal this year. The more they get old the more fed will have chances to take him out actually, since nadal's movement is crumbling faster than fed's. I say he has a 50% chance to win it.

Therefore Fed has plenty of chances to win 3. Trolls will hunt me forever if I say he can win 4, but we all have that thought in one corner of our brain.

proud Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga fan

Even prouder Rafael Nadull hater

I'd be shocked and amazed if someone took 3 slams in 2012.

Murray hasn't won one slam so how can he win 3?
Besides almost all players stumble a little bit or a lot after their first win.

Re: Will we see a 3 slam season in 2012?

I think the answer for 2012 is NO, but if you are to ask me which one is the most likely to do it in 2012, I'd have to go with Rogie.
