The only fluke is Nadull becoming a fake left hander because if he wasn't he would have 1 slam just like mugray.

Federer will win another grand slam.
Cilic is not a one slam wonder.

Did I say what Flink predicts is a foregone conclusion? No, I did not. I said that Flink's opinion is relevant because he is a tennis expert and your opinion is irrelevant because you are not a tennis expert. You did not answer my questions:

1. Can you tell me which tennis expert is always right?
2. Can you find tennis experts who said that Djokovic will not reach double digits?

Can you find tennis experts who said that Murray will not reach double digits?
Can you find tennis experts who said that Del Potro will not reach double digits?
Can you find tennis experts who said that Ferrer will not reach double digits?
Can you find tennis experts who said that Berdych will not reach double digits?

Re: If Djokovic stays the No. 1 until October, he will overtake Nadal...

doable. he'll have to take two GSs and defend his masters titles.
Will be interesting how Nadal fares until Wimbledon.
He can potentially have an even worse slump and drop down to No 6., if he doesn't kick in immediately at AO and the US spring tour. And needs a perfect clay record once again. A tall order coming out of injury, even for Rafa.

Why this pointless harping on about experts? We have several here on the forum which expertise either surpasses or fully matches that of your named experts. Why they don't have a paid job as such? Either because they lack name-recognition, because they are not natural writers, or simply because they prefer to do something else besides regularly being proven wrong in public.

The main difference between paid experts and non-paid experts is that the former have a larger incentive in keeping public interest. They will always be better served by overhyping than underhyping. As I am sure you have seen examples of in the past. If not, try to search for expert opinions about the future career of Donald Young about eight years ago. If Djokovic in the future underperform comparatively as much as Young, in relation to expert opinions, then he'll never reach another slam SF.

Can you prove that those several users are tennis experts? Pay attention: the only way you can prove it to people who are not tennis experts is to provide reliable source which shows that they are recognized as tennis experts.

Do you claim that Flink and Sampras said what they do not believe?

You have not answered these questions:

1. Can you tell me which tennis expert is always right?
2. Can you find tennis experts who said that Djokovic will not reach double digits?

nobody really knows what's going to happen in 2013, experts or non experts. it's a pointless game of guessing and trying to predict future.

What else to do in the off season?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Have you guys noticed that Nole, lately, is using one hand BH more and more often? It's usually when his on the stretch, but also in regular rallies. I didn't want to open a new thread and this place seems like a good one to talk about it as everyone is bored
