Sarcasm duly noted, but at this moment in time, I think there will be at most 2 different Grand Slam winners this year.
The other 126 players won't retire and find another job for several reasons. However, a belief that they can win a Major is not one of the reasons. at least 120 of those players will have little or no belief that they can win at the Slams.
Nor am I suggesting this means the death of tennis. Tennis is far from dead as we will be witnessing a rivalry to match and possibly surpass the short-lived Borg-McEnroe one.
