Re: Four individual GS winners in 2012, not since 2003.

This is a good variation because Murray always had the potential to win slams even against the top 3. He now officially joins them

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Re: Four individual GS winners in 2012, not since 2003.

Now WTF decides who is player of the year.

Top 4 are pretty close if we look what happened on big tournaments

Djokovic - 1 slam, 2 slam finals
Murray - 1 slam, 1 slam final, Olympic gold.
Federer- 1 slam,Olympic silver
Nadal- 1 slam, 1 slam final

Whoever grabs WTF, is a champ. Even if he is not year end # 1

For example,if Murray wins WTF, and Fed is year end # 1, Murray would still be moral winner of the year IMO.

Wow, it didn't occur to me I guess we can call USO unpredictable now, not AO that usually had a surprise champion

Finally some good competition. Hopefully this can happen several years in a row like 2000-2003. Best eras are the ones where no-one dominates.

Great season.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!


17 Grand Slam titles
7 Wimbledon titles
302 weeks at #1
Legend
