Re: What are your tennis wishes for 2013?

All my favourites to make me enjoy the sport. Doesn't necessarily have to be through being successful. Also hope they make me laugh, cry or whatever.

On a personal note, I want to bunk off school for a week and go and spend it in Eastbourne. Love that tournament.

2013 - David Ferrer wins another 1000 masters (or two, or more) and he is in the final of a grand slam (or two) and wins at least one of them.

Re: What are your tennis wishes for 2013?

- Soderling to return to tennis and even reach top 10.
- Federer to win another slam
- Someone else than Rafa wins RG
- One first time slam winner
- Jerzy becomes a solid top player
- Raferminator shows his real face

Re: What are your tennis wishes for 2013?

Gut says federer will somehow pull off 2 slams. ( murray and djoker are going to decline physically which will effect there style of play more than any decline in federer's game since its not sooo physically dependent)...

Been right about too much since i joined.

US open stupid saturday instantly makes that neck and neck with wimbledon for fed to legitamately win with a slowly declining djoker who will be 26.5 by then and you can only play like he does for so long I think we're already seeing his physi9cally decline... Fed is in a stable place where he's not really changing for the next year or 2 or not significantly vs the others will change significantly.

Aussie should be played with no pressure for fed and he should consider roland garros and exho.. .for some reason that mentality may bring him more results than putting pressure.

If fed can somehow nab aussie he will get multiple slam year for sure... The serve, confidence, and movement if all there he will have his chances..


Bump this post at the end of 2013 and lets see what I got correct.

I think you are in the wrong thread. This is about wishes. We have another one about predicting what we think will actually happen, and that last one is the one which will get bumped, irrespective of actual results. Someone will undoubtedly be in a position to brag a little, or at least point out others who failed more than they did.
