Who Will Be The Next Player To Win 4 Career Grand Slam Titles?

The easiest answer here is Delpo. He's already got 1, he's creeped back into the top 10, and he's only 23.

But for me Delpo hasn't really improved at all since his US Open crown. In fact, I think he's gotten worse.

Andy Murray is my second favorite player on tour but for him I just don't see it happening. His record against Fed, Nadal and Nole in Grand Slams is terrible.

So who will it be? With Federer turning 31, Nadal turning 26 and Nole's recent struggles, someone has to win them when these guys inevitably slow down. As the old saying goes, father time is unbeaten.

Will it be a veteran like Berdych, Tsonga or Delpo who finally put it altogether and go on a rampage while taking advantage of the big 3+ Murray going through a downswing?

Or will it be one of the dangerous guns under the age of 22 that have shown loads and loads of signs?

Someone has to do it eventually . . .

Sure you did.

Out of those options, I believe Raonic has the most promise (particularly as Nadal will be gone while he's still in his prime, and therefore winning RG shouldn't be so difficult). But remember Djokovic hasn't done it yet either, and there's a strong possibility he might be next.

No I really did

I agree completely. Something about that guy just has stardom written all over it.

Beating Muzza on clay really, really impressed me. Muzza sucks on clay but the way their games translate I figured Andy would routine him in Barcelona.

Instead Milos knocked him off in 2.

Taking Federer to 3 LONG sets in tournaments that the GOAT eventually ended up winning speaks for itself.

He's only 21 and has 3 career titles already.

Again, superstar written all over him

Re: Who is the Next Player to get to 4 Grand Slams?

Juan Carlos Ferrero? LOL Isner? LOL Brian Baker? Hewitt? C'mon dude. You must keep in mind that Nadal has 26 and Djokovic is even younger than most of the players you put on the list, they'll keep winning for 4 or 5 years and Federer problaly for more 2 or 3 years since he is in good shape. Only Delpo, Raonic and maybe Tomic have the potencial to do it, but I don't believe it.

Re: Who is the Next Player to get to 4 Grand Slams?

Let's see them get 1 slam first (or in Delpo's case one more)

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I thought he meant totally 4, not career GS. Doesn't change much though.

He never said different. And Ddjokovic already did it because he has 5.


I say Del Potro. In 2014/2015.

Re: Who is the Next Player to get to 4 Grand Slams?

He means GS by the GS titles.

The only real answer is Raonic. Who voted Hewitt?

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend
