Who will have the strongest comeback in 2018?

So far three of the top players are taking the rest of the year off due to injuries. I'm guessing it will be hard for tennis fans not to compare their returns to Olderer's.

So... who do you think will benefit the most of it and perform better at the January-March HC swing?

Nole will win multiple slams and get back to #1.

Re: Who will have the strongest comeback in 2018?

Well of course Djokovic is going to have a better comeback than Kei or Stan on account of the fact that he is a better player in general. That being said I don't think he will be at his best right away. I imagine it will take some time to get back in the swing of things. In short, I don't think any of them will win the AO, at least.

Fixed.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Re: Who will have the strongest comeback in 2018?

Bigger question is will they come back at all?

Already Murray's Mum is talking the possibility of retirement for him; wouldn't be all that surprising if some of the other's decide its not worth the slog any more, particularly if someone else makes the jump first...

They are all, after all, getting quite old in tennis years, not everyone can do a Federer, and not everyone really loves it as much as him anyway...

Re: Who will have the strongest comeback in 2018?

Djokovic- I think he'll have the strongest comeback. AO will probably be to soon for him, however he'll have a great chance in the other 3. I predict a slam winning year at either RG or USO and a top 2 finish.

Wawrinka- Will probably return to his inconsistent self by going out early in many tournaments and maybe a deep run in a couple of slams. He'll decline but I still think he'll finish in the top 10

Nishikori- This is really sad to see him syruggling with so many injuries. This guy cant seem to catch a break. IF he can stay fit the entire year then he should be good enough to finish in the top 8, but injury is always never too far away and could easily fall out the top 20 which I hope doesn't happen.

Kei will have the hardest start of them all, ranking may actually drop below 20 during early weeks of the season.

Re: Who will have the strongest comeback in 2018?

Nishikori has been made of glass for years and lacks the drive imo. Djokovic has been MIA for over a year now, so I have my doubts about where his mind is at anymore, even Nadal seemed arguably more involved when he was in his bad period (in terms of results, effort, etc.)

I think Wawrinka is the obvious choice. Despite the injury at least practically the last bit he was playing he was doing pretty well. I mean for gods sake he made the Roland Garros final a few months ago

I expect Stan to return and do what he always does- remain a threat in slams. I could easily see him skipping a lot of events with a genuine injury issue and just giving 110% physically at slams. Hell he already practically does that

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Stan Wawrinka <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Who will have the strongest comeback in 2018?

Competition for comeback award could be fierce.

Difficult to predict what happens. Some come back fine after a long break, but not everyone is Nadal or Federer. Djokovic never had a long break before so it's uncharted territory for him. Still looks like the most likely one to me atm.
