you are right but the poll allows for only 10 options and I choose the best rising players

I'm thinking of Fognini, Dimitrov, Janowicz and Sijsling.
As said last year for Gilles Muller I'll repeat my bet for the 2013 as well; should Fognini win a title I'll swim the channel with my mother-in-law on my back and I'll post photos in here.

I hope Bennetau can finally win a title, but I think it's too late for that unfortunately. He just can't play in finals.

Grisha and Janowicz should be winning a title next year. I hope Pella can win one but honestly I don't think he can yet.
I've seen the Irons live 3 times


Oh well, wherever, wherever you are,
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far.
See the blood flow watching it she'd up above my head.
Iron Maiden wants you for dead.

I don't think these numbers carry such a mental (negative) load and countless bruises.

Re: Maiden winner next year? -2013-

David Goffin, Ruben Bemelmans, Adrian Ungur and Simone Bolelli are shocking omissions. OP is a mug.

it's not like you're repeating an experiement with random odds, Beneateu is horrible in slam finals, his brain turns to mush, the same negative factor is there even this year and you don't even know if he'll make another final to test the 'theory'

Dimitrov, also has Goffin won one yet? if not then him too

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Maiden winner next year? -2013-

Hopefully Grigor finally breaks through.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

Re: Maiden winner next year? -2013-

Except Benneteau, a notorious choker, none of the players in the poll is good enough to win an ATP title unless they improve massively (really, really massively) or are lucky enough to sign up for events with really weak beyond belief fields.
