Your wishes for 2007

I know, season isn't officially over yet, but last week in Madrid with everyone playing made me think about several players in different stages of their careers and how I would like next year to be their breakthrough year.

(*) Gonzo: for all of his great form of late and success in the TMS events this year, his poor results at the Slams can't be ignored.
He has made the QFs of three different Slams, and I hope next year (as he approaches 27) he will be able to take it to the next level and make at least a SF.

(*) Berdych: I'm pretty sure by now almost everyone agrees the guy has a great game that can translate well to almost all surfaces, what he doesn't have is a QF appearance at a Slam, and anyone with that kind of game should aim to win at least one GS, especially when the guy is a sure bet whenever a 5th set is played.
I would love the BirdMan to make a strong statement at the Slams next year, as well as finish in the upper half of the top 10.

(*)Djokovic: A game with no weaknesses, great mental strength and maturity (despite some physical issues and leftovers of gamesmanship, probably from his junior days), proven ability on various surfaces, his game isn't my cup of tea but it's clear he's as good as almost everyone in the top 10 already, and I would like his results at the Slams and TMS events to show for it. Somehow I know they will.

(*) Murray: An intelligent player with already a nice list of scalps to his name, I would love him to improve on the physical side and play with more explosiveness. No doubt in my mind his 1st GS QF is around the corner, and he should aim to much more.
I'd love him to finish in the top 10.

(*) Gasquet: By now we all know he's not another Federer, and this year he has been cold, hot and cold again. Federer or not, it's time he started to realize 5% of his potential and although he's merely 20 the fact he hasn't made it past the 4th round of a Slam yet is shocking to me. He will, tough, and the sooner the better, and since I'd love him to one day threaten to win Slams, I'd love him to make his 1st Slam final in 2007

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women

Re: Your wishes for 2007

I want Safin to stay healthy (physically and mentally) and I want him to win another Grand Slam and make it back into the top 4. A guy that talented should have more than two Grand Slams to his name.

Go Marat. You can do it.

Re: Your wishes for 2007

Murray- making the top 10 will be ok as long as he keeps improving and gets physically tougher so he can outhit opponents.

Oh and I'd like to see Federer win Roland Garros.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Your wishes for 2007

Federer: What I said last year, calendar Grand Slam. Also, improve h2h vs. Nadal.
Safin: Back in the top five and some good titles to his name. I wouldn't say no to a major, in fact I'd be over the moon, but I would really like to see Roger win all four just once, and then my other faves can start winning.
Nadal: Improve hard court results.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

Re: Your wishes for 2007

I agree with Rogiman. I'll add Safin to the list, I'd like him to challenge Roger once more.

Early wishes?

I want Nadal to win the Aussie and Roger to win RG.

I'll leave it at that for now.

Sébastien Grosjean is alive and well and living in Boca.

Re: Your wishes for 2007

I'd like to see neither Federer nor Nadal win any slams next year.

I want Roddick, Safin and Nalbandian to win the slams.

I'd also like to see Ferrero get his forehand, and hence his old form, back.

The ideal scenario would be 3 or 4 players challenging for the #1 ranking.

"3 or 4 players challenging for the #1 ranking"..............................

I hope to see that, But I still think that won't happen next year

We need a young guy to come out to beat Roger, I think 3 or 4 young Teens do have that chance to come out. But who will be the guy to beat Roger,
We need wait for 2008

I don't even think, Roddick, Nalbandian, Blakes, Safin, Nadal, All five guys will stay at Top 10, but they still not enought to challenging for the #1 ranking

And also
Berdych, Gonzo, Gasquet and Murray-------Those four players will possibly join Top 10.

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Re: Your wishes for 2007

Federer to win RG.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
