Noserer might not win another slam, but I'm really hoping for Wimbledon.

Dull win win the French duh

And Del Potro for the USO!!!

Nadal is back next year so Federer wont win anything. Nadal RG maybe or Wimby. Tho i see new RG champion next year.

what??? what is up with you guys, Federer has had just as solid as season as his last few, there are no real indications that much has changed from him. Nadal was having possibly the most successful season of any player on tour up until Wimbledon and his injury issues; his form obviously has not dissapeared but he has a temporary physical defect.

who knows, maybe the two won't play that well next season, but this season certainly is not any strong indicator of the two declining except possibly indicating that Nadal should make a more easy going schedule of tournaments to play.

I think they will probably each win one next year but then again who can predict such things reliably, this is one of the most unpredictable sports out there, despite the formality of the last # of seasons

Nadal has a good chance at RG regardless of anything so I'll say yes.

Yes, Nadal's still favoured for RG. Not sure about Fed though.

Noserer has no chance to fluke a slam next year. Nadal is a lock for RG and has a good chance at Wimbledon and USO.

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Going to go out on a limb and say no. I think Djokovic will bounce back and win multiple slams, and Murray has enough confidence to pull another slam out.

If Rafa wins a slam next year, will he be the first person to ever win a slam in 9 consecutive years?

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

I'm going to say no.

Djokovic for AO.
Del Potro for FO.
Murray/Tsonga/Berdych for Wimbledon
Djokovic/Murray for USO


Nadal will fail in his quest to become the first man to win the same Slam 8 times and also the first man to win at least one Slam nine years in a row. His recent injury problems sure won't help fulfill this mission.

Federer will continue his slow decline. 2013 might be the first year since 2003 without Federer in a Slam final, although he might make one like 2012 and 2011.

Del Potro will never even approach a slam final ever again, much less win RG trophy. And Clownga winning Wimbledon? Are you talking about playstation or real life?

You're trying to jinx Fakerer again - he'll probably win the French Open this time

Joking aside, as I said, I've never been wrong - Nadal to win all 4 slams next year and win the next 6-8 French Opens. Quote me if I'm wrong - I've never been wrong on these forums ever.

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

I don't know who'll win slams next year, but to suggest a ballbashing clown like Del-Fluktro winning RG is preposterous. He'll get hammered by any decent defender with good fitness. When will people accept he's a 250/500 level player? He fluked one big title. Take away his USO and he's a worse player than Ferrer, Berdych, Tsonga etc.

Seems he fluked an Olympics Bronze medal too on his worst surface?

Djokovic and Del Potro are both likely to win RG at some point simply because they're the only two players from the post-Nadal who can play great tennis on clay, not to mention the only two who can realistically beat Nadal on the surface if he comes back strong next year.

Tsonga has a chance at Wimbledon especially if it rains heavily during the latter rounds. Indoor grass would be a dream surface for him. His shit backhand and ROS would barely be exposed since he'd able to finish points fast.
