2013 preview - Who will dictate? Who will challenge the top 4? Who declines/ascends?

I am really excited about the upcoming 2013 season. I got no real clue what's gonna happen.

There are some questions I really would like to have an answer to like:


1) How strong will Nole be after a uber-year and a very good year?
2) Will there be a Fedal encounter?
3) Will there be a major upsot like the Rosolmania?
4) Who can beat the top4 guys more than once? Delpo? Tsonga? Raonic?
5) Who will win RG2013? Omg, I really wanna know that!
6) Who will crack the top 10 next year? Raonic? Nishikori? Monfils?
7) Will Nadal play the same role he has played the last 7 years?
8) Will Murray continue to focus on slams only, get semis in all of them and mug around in M1000 tourneys?



Share your wisdom with the MTF crowd, wisemen!

Scud to finally pull off his long-awaited comeback, winning IW, Paris and Wimbledon, grabbing the World No. 1 spot in November and subsequently YE#1.

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Baker / Alund / Fed / Khachanov / Pouille / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

1. good year
2. Yes in exhibitions for sure, maybe on tour too
3. Yes, hopefully with the man himself
4. About 5-6 players on the tour
5. Delpo or Berdych takes it to chock MTF
6. Cilic
7. What role is that? the villain role? sure but maybe more time for Toni to shine
8. Murray wants to win every match like all pros. If he sucks he sucks. Slam or no slam.

Rosol will fall from the top 100, where he does not belong. As will horrible players who are wasting spots like Dodig, Bautista-Agut and Ito. Andujar will fall out as well.

Nadal will win up to 2 slams. French Open and maybe US Open.

Federer will decline.

Djokovic will suffer an injury.

Murray and Djokovic will dominate the tour.
Federer's decline will begin in earnest, but he will remain in the top 3 and do pretty damn well for himself. Definitely no slams though.
Nadal will have a struggle for a while on his return to the game, and won't win Roland Garros, possibly suffering a big upset in the process.
DelPo will continue to build, Tsonga will struggle to stay in the top 10. Raonic gets to at least #9.

Dream scenario is that Soderling and Nadal come back, and Soderling makes Nadal his whipping boy in slams.

Impossible to over-rate him. He accomplished what 99% of people were convinced he never would: won a slam.

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

I predict the top ten rankings will even out with the top three or four players losing more often to other top 10, 20 players.

Old Roger who declined is still called the top?

Even when Sampras, Agassi, and other Legend players turned 30 years old, it was called so?

what mug era.

The question is, is there a big four? Not yet.

1)Nole will remain the best player in the world.

2)Yes, assuming Nadal returns to the tour full time.

3)There could be yes, but sage money would be on no.

4)If you mean at Slams, then Delpo, Tsonga and Berdych. If you mean overall, quite a few more players.

5)Djokovic or Del Potro, probably Nole.

6)Nishikori and Cilic.

7)I don't know what role you're talking about specifically, but he shall remain a top player for sure and a contender for every big tournament.

8)No, he will do better in M1000 events next year.
