Quite possibly.

1. PART A: Will Nadal lose a set at the French Open? Yes ||| PART B: Will someone other than Nadal win the French Open? Yes, but I doubt it will be this year.

2. Will Murray win a Grand Slam? He has a high chance. If Federer continues streaky Murray can beat Djokovic and Nadal (though the latter is a but tougher for Murray) in a final.
3. Will Youzhny or Davydenko finally beat Federer? If this year is anything to go by, they both have chances. Blake did it, who would have thought?

4. Will Tsonga reach another Grand Slam final? I love his game, but I still think he is streaky within streaky, which is to say he plays great and bad in the same game too often. But if he can keep his mind together, he's got the game.

5. Will Gulbis crack the top 20? Yes.

6. Will Djokovic beat Murray in their next meeting? Why not? It can go either way really.

7. Will Federer lose before the semi-finals in a Grand Slam? Possible. hard to see this happening in Wimbledon and especially the US Open.

8. Will someone other than Nadal (Djokovic, Murray, Davydenko or Tsonga) defend their Masters title? Yeah. Of course. The schedule is so long sometimes favorite players are prone to retiring in the same tournament.

9. Will Nadal reach a Grand Slam hard court final?

It is possible, but draw dependent. Too many hard hitters in a row and he will be too tired IMHO. He can handle 2 or 3 of them in a row max.

Question 10 isn't quantifiable IMO because veryone has different expectations.

For example, my expectations were that Federer would have mental meltdowns against all the top player, cry and smash his rackets :worship: and these would be quite different from, say, Mr Chopin's expecatations (win every tournament enetered - guessing)
