The French Open looks set to be Rafa's again, so I thought I'd look forward to one that's a bit more open.

Andy Roddick is my choice. :)

Murray, Blake, Djokovic or Nalbandian.

TVTennis, although your thread isn't about the WTA, I just noticed your sig. If there is one tennis player I would really love to see get a slam win it would be Dementieva. Don't know if she can pull it off, but I would be very happy for her if she did...

I wouldn't mind winning Wimbledon. :p

Out of professional players probably The King. Could you imagine this place if he won Wimbledon. Of course it will never happen....sorry will happen when he stops being a generous man and stops tanking his matches.

Unlikely to happen, but would love to see Murray win it.

Anyone who plays attacking tennis.

Safin or Djoker. And no Fedchoker purlease, having this pansy win Wimbledon again is a total humiliation to tennis.

I would like to see, obviously, any of my faves win. Which is highly unfeesable. So the person with the biggest chance IMO & I would like to see win is Andy Murray.

Winning Gasquet would remind me of Conchita Martinez winning Wimbly.

Strange things happenz!

My first choice is forbidden by the thread title, but it would be neat for Tsonga to win it. If he plays at 75% of his AO 2008 level he'd have a great shot too.

Some old qualifier in his 30s who's nearing the end of his rather mundane career. Well, how about Stepanek?

Andy Murray - because I would like to see him win his first grand slam, especially on home soil
or
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - because I firmly believe he's got the game for grass, and I love the guy anyway.

Also, either Verdasco or Ferrer would make my day but, alas, that's not gonna happen.

Gasquet.

I would love Nalbandian because time is playing against him.
But he would need to move very well.

Then Djokovic (by far the most realistic : I'm always surprised that he's so underrated on grass) : I would like him to beat Nadal and Murray everywhere in the future because he's so much more pleasant for me.

Or Gasquet of course especially because it could give an acceleration to his carreer.

I guess Nalbandian would be in one of my choices as well. Lord knows he deserves one slam before his career is done. I fear his chances may have run out though.

I dont think deserving has anything to do with it. He prefers spending an afternoon in Mcdonalds then in the gym.

Tsonga with his attacking game could do well on grass if he is not injured.

Nalbandian is going to have a pretty hard time winning a slam now the he might need surgery on his hip....So I think his chances are over....But I also think he deserves a slam before he retires

Henry Kaspar
04-27-2009, 03:13 PM
Some talented young blood; i.e. the likes of Murray, Djokovic, Tsonga, Monfils. The folks who can challenge Nadal in the coming years.

I like Roddick and Nalbandian and am always happy when they do well, but they are the Federer generation and won't enter the fight for the very top any more at this stage of their careers.

Lots of love for Roddick here ;)

I could fill the entire QF line up with my preferred picks, most of them play well at Wimby either traditionally or since last year like Marat :)

Since I'm not allowed to pick my fave to win, I would love to see Gasquet take Wimbledon, if not Gasquet another first time winner like Tsonga, Berdych :oI know not going to happen but thread title never said it had to be a realistic winner:p

i'll actually go with roddick as well, since he's made 2 finals here. i'd kind of like to hear his speech if he ever wins another GS, after all these years. maybe he'll cry like when he won the us open. fun scenario: he beats fed in the final (highly unlikely, i know) and they're both crying during the ceremony, for obvious reasons. just think of the field day MTF would have with the whole thing...

Otherwise, any American, but of the players with a more realistic chance I would definitely go with Andy Murray.
