How many Masters will be won by players outside the top 3 in 2012?

3 are done - All top 3 winners.
6 more to go. Who will grab a title other than those guys?

I think Murray will maybe get Toronto or Shanghai. If not, all 9 will be won by Federer/Nadal/Djokovic.


ROGER FEDERER

'Roger Federer is the best ever' - Everyone else other than John McEnroe*

*Not anymore...

4 AO - 1 RG - 7 W - 5 USO

Top 4 will win them all again. Murray will get a couple as usual.

Maybe 3.

Murray should get his trademark one/two Masters, at least one in Shangai, and maybe someone else will get one as well.

Re: How many Masters will be won by players outside the top 3 in 2012?

I have a feeling Raonic might just snatch one (perhaps Toronto with the home crowd?). Nadal hasn't won a hardcourt title in forever... so I definitely think if Raonic, or even Isner or Del Potro, were to get a semi against him on the surface, they'd have a decent chance.

As I see it now:

Madrid - Federer (50%) or Nadal (50%)
Rome - Djokovic (40%) or Nadal (60%)
Toronto - Raonic (20%) or Murray (80%)
Cincinnati - Federer (100%)
Shanghai - Federer (30%), Murray (50%) or Djokovic (20%)
Paris - Federer (40%) or Djokovic (60%)

Murray's the favourite at Shanghai and the timing of Paris and Toronto will throw a spanner in the works.

Murray will win 2 when nobody cares after US Open and maybe Cincy or something like that.He always does that cant win anything good then wins those mug Masters events like Shanghai

Congrats to Roger Federer on his 17th record breaking GS title and becoming the best player that ever played on grass and breaking number 1 record.You deserve it Roger

Re: How many Masters will be won by players outside the top 3 in 2012?

Del potro win will roma.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

3, Murray should win 2, perhaps 2 of Cincinnati/Paris/Shanghai and I think someone outside the top 4 could win Toronto/Paris (Toronto because its olympics year - perhaps Isner? Or Tsonga?

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

3. Murray wins US Open 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by [pending]. Thanks [pending]!

I'll go with 3.

Murray to take Montreal or Cincy as well as Shanghai and then someone else to take Paris.
