When will see a big server win Wimbledon again

So the days of Sampras winning Wimbledons left and right are over. Roddick could have won a couple of Wimby's but he just failed. So in your opinion, when will we see the next big server win Wimbledon and who will it be. I am talking about guys like Tsonga, Raonic, Isner, ... (Federer and Nadal may serve great on grass but don't have the biggest serves exactly).

All serve mugs don't deserve slams. Simple as that. Tennis is a game based around rallies, nobody wants to see acefests by mugs who can't keep the ball in court for over 5 shots.

Well, he could meet Roger in Halle in 2 days (Roger is playing right?). We will see how he stacks up against Roger on grass

Re: When will see a big server win Wimbledon again

Raonic comes to mind. He's the only one around, really.

Maybe Tsonga, but its Tsonga.. :-/

Re: When will see a big server win Wimbledon again

When the grass is sped up which means never.

Tsonga has the best chance at the moment out of al the guys with a big serve.

Roger Federer

I was impressed with Tsonga at French Open. He seems mentally stronger than before. He has beaten Rafa on grass in the past so that gives me hope he can hang. But I can see him reach a final and lose to a Murray. So he is unpredictable

Milos could do it if he becomes a better returner and keeps building his confidence up.

No, tennis is a game based around all styles of play.

Re: When will see a big server win Wimbledon again

A big serve will get you through the early rounds but once you match up against a good, or even adequate, returner who can break your serve, even occasionally, you're going to need to win points on the return game. At the moment, big servers like Karlovic and Isner don't have that. Even Raonic isn't that impressive on the return game. Berdych got close and Tsonga has the weapons but those guys are more than just big servers IMHO.

Re: When will see a big server win Wimbledon again

I think in the next 10 years we're going to see Raonic and Tomic have alot of meetings at Wimbledon, Raonic for my liking to win also in a couple of years!

When grass becomes grass.

Although it's inconceivable that Raonic won't win Wimbledon IMO, given the lack of strength in his generation.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend
