Re: Who do you think will be next new Master1000 event champion?

It would seem this summer's Masters events have a solid chance for a first time winner. So a player who likely won't medal at the Olympics but good on hard court would have a great shot.

That makes it between del Potro and Raonic. Last year, Raonic didn't play in the summer so we don't actually know yet the effect of having home crowd support. My pick is del Potro - after all, he's already won the big one so pressure of a mere Masters title won't come into play.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

Del Potro already won a slam, so it won't really make a difference winning a M1000 now. But anyway I think he will win Cinci or Canada (maybe Madrid).

Isner will be the next one.

Del Potro and an in-form Fish. Isner gets fatigued too easily and I don't see him beating three of the top four in a row to win a Masters 1000.

Re: Who do you think will be next new Master1000 event champion?

I'd like to see DelPo win one only if to see the reaction of those Murraytards that keep saying he's never won a Masters 1000 so his slam is a fluke. I wonder what they'll say then .

Re: Who do you think will be next new Master1000 event champion?

Raonic will definitely be one of the first new ones soon. come on if he has a great serving week he can easily do it esspecially with most masters being so short in duration. I mean I could see him winning Canada this summer if he gets into the groove with all the home support, and the kid has got balls and is extremely clutch.

i think he's robotic and a bit boring but i totally see him winning one this year or next. guys confident and not afraid to risk it sometimes

honestly we can't say it was a fluke exactly because there's no such thing as 'fluke' wins really but what we can say is that Del Potro the majority of the time is nowhere near as good as he was that year at the US OPEN.

Del Potro can get hot but he just has never been the same since early 2010. he will likely never match a player like Murray even though he leads him with the GS win.

I hope this will change because i love del potro, but something seems to be missing. he used to seem more creative and more INTO the game, now he just hits his famous power forehands from the baseline but you always feel when watching him like he doesn't quite have the confidence and doesn't quite have the weapons besides the go to forehand. just feel like something is missing.

Murray is a much better player than Del Potro overall. I hope Juan gets his magic back and I hope he improves but we definitely can say that is 2009 US OPEN form was essentially a one time thing so far in his career

From those players, only Isner has the real ability to win a Masters. So yes, it is the big Izzyman.

Monfils. Not because he's the best player in the list, but because Paris1000 suits him so well. He's made 2 finals there already and took Djokovic to a final set tiebreaker in 2009. Plus a lot of players are fatigued/injured by that time of the year so hopefully Monfils can take advantage.

Ferrer is the highest ranked player not win a masters 1000. Therefore he has the best chance out of that list to win one.

Wrong. Isner has shown no ability to win a masters 1000.
