I think French or Wimbledon.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

It's still too soon to tell, but if he does I just have a feeling it'll be the Australian Open, even if he's never done well there.

I agree, I don't think there's any reason why he shouldn't do well there. He missed it due to illness in 2005, and this year he drew Haas first round, so it's no surprise he hasn't had great results there yet. And the AO has had surprise winners/finalists in the last few years.

Re: Which grandslam will Richie win first?

he has showed awesome results on grass and proved that he can hang with the best on any surface, but on clay you have guys like nadal who dominate quite exclusively and on hard you have fed, russians, americans, etc. because hard is a very adaptable surface, but on grass, if you can beat federer, then you can definitely win wimby, and richard came VERY close to beating fed in halle, so i think that his best chance is going to come at wimbledon, but the awesome thing about richard is that he's one of the few players who can play on all surfaces and not be bothered by it at all, so he's one of the most dangerous all-surface players out there right now.

Re: Which grandslam will Richie win first?

I think Wimbledon, but I wouldn't rule out the US Open either. He's quite comfortable playing on grass (2 titles so far).

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

Re: Which grandslam will Richie win first?

I know it is very unlikely that he will win the french open (at least in the next years), but it is the one I want to see him win.

So do I, but others will be with less pressure. Therefore: the US Open or even Wimby, even if this would cause some problems with my loyalties.

Re: Which grandslam will Richie win first?

I think he plays well on all the surfaces and is a danger on them all. I also thought he played quite comfortably on grass this year against Federer. I think he has a chance of winning USO or Wimbledon. Maybe USO in the coming future and Wimbledon sometime later, because for now, if it's a toss up b/w him and Roger, I won't know whom to support. But, I really think he will win grandslams and has a pretty decent chance at all of them.
