is any other player in the mix? maybe rafa with a fourth consecutive french open title? baghdatis for cyprus?
Possibly, but not necessarily. There are other decently prominent athletes who play football/soccer, basketball, and even recently a swimmer who broke the European record (Cavic). So it's up for grabs. I can't imagine Ivanovic carrying it - she's probably going to go for the "girly" role as Eurovision MC or something of that nature. If Djokovic wins the next two () slams, I'm 100% sure he's carrying. If "only" one, then very likely. If none, then not likely at all.

Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)

You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)
