Most likely to win a Slam before retirement?

Which of these 'older' players can pull it off? which GS and why?

Re: Most likely to win a Slam before retirement?

I'd like to vote Flip (and what the hell, I did anyway), but Wimbledon is the only place it could happen, and with Federer now reigning supreme at SW19, and his improvement in 05 being very slow and not quite so steady with injuries galore, the chances are even slimmer than what I saw them being at the end of last year

Amazingly enough, Agassi is probably the best chance of the players listed....but same thing goes, no Federer pls

The only player whose chanes, I think, exceed 5% is Henman.

I have to vote for Tim, he's the only one of these that I think has any chance.

Re: Most likely to win a Slam before retirement?

I don't think any of them will, but the one with the biggest shot at it would be Andre.

Re: Most likely to win a Slam before retirement?

I say Tim just because I want him to although deep down I don't see it happening.
Andre's got a chance just because he is Andre Agassi, but again he just keeps bumping into Federer way too often.

Re: Most likely to win a Slam before retirement?

Out of solidarity with Niti I voted for Moya.
I'd so like him to win another RG. *dreaming*

And poor Tim. I've wanted him to win Wimby but really don't see it happening any more. But then again, who knows what might still happen.

Re: Most likely to win a Slam before retirement?

I voted for Guga, because I let my heart speak instead of my mind! My mind says Andre is the best player listed here (but I don't see him beating Roger by the way), but I just have to vote for Guga. I'd really like to see him win RG one more time! Because Guga is just
