Re: Next New Grand Slam Winner?

I think the French is the only chance of seeing a new slam winner this year

Maybe Coria (dont know what this injury situation is though). Nadal could go well at the French....he hasnt played there yet has he?

No...think he missed it with injury if i remember correctly. He should be a big threat there though

Cant see nalbandian winning a slam yet, he doesnt quite have it mentally or in his game. But i feel coria has a good chance at the french, so i think it will be him.

Yeah think nalbandian has all the physical attributes...but seems to struggle with the really big matches and finals

Re: Next New Grand Slam Winner?

Yeah, he has some mental block in the big matches and i dont think he is strong enough in the mind. Another reason is his terrible serve, it doesnt get him any free points and its a big disadvantage. Even if he had a serve like hewitt he would be a much better player.

Yeah the serve is a mystery to me. Not sure why he settles for rolling it in most of the time when he can do much more with it when he wants to

Undoubtedly...unless Henman finally puts the screaming middle - age women to rest in July!

Re: Next New Grand Slam Winner?

i'd love to say nadal but i dont know if he's quite ready yet, so we'll go with coria to win the french seeing as there's more chance of me winning wimbledon than henman

Re: Next New Grand Slam Winner?

I think tim is another one who with a better serve would have a great chance to win a slam, but his serve isnt exactly great and not really a weapon.

Re: Next New Grand Slam Winner?

Out of the 4 at the top, Coria is most dangerous on clay and Joachim is top 4 dangerous on grass. Maybe both will win GS this year although I don't think Joachim is quite ready yet.

Henman could win wimbledon...if he avoids hewitt, federer, safin, agassi and so on! LOL...no i think he will always struggle against an excellent returner

Think JJ is more dangerous on hard courts, at least for the next few years until he has more experience on grass
