I hope Tsonga, or a return to fitness Soderking are the next guys. Great guys, great games.

Re: Which country breaks the slam drought next?

It could just as easily be none of the above (and also not Serbia, Switzerland, Spain or the UK)

Re: Which country breaks the slam drought next?

Should Tsonga fail, there's more chance of an Ethiopian winning a slam before a headcase Frenchman.

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Re: Which country breaks the slam drought next?

Only two of those countries have players with any chance at ending the drought (Berdych and Tsonga) at the moment. Of those two I give Berdych the better chance.

Re: Which country breaks the slam drought next?

I'm expecting Nieminen to bring us a slam or 2 in 2013.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.
