The team (Gilbert, Cahill, Drysdale, Fernandez, etc.) were all going around making "bold" predictions a few minutes ago on ESPN2 during their opening coverage and here were a few:

Chris Evert: Venus wins a major in 2012 (as well as Sharapova)
Darren Cahill: Americans (both men and women) will be shut out in slams this year
Cliff Drysdale: A women outside the top 10 will win the Australian Open (meaning Serena or Clijsters will win :cool:)
Mary Jo Fernandez: Murray will win Wimbledon this year
Brad Gilbert: Murray will win TWO majors this year and will ascend to No. 1 :eek:

The prophet has spoken! :)

Brad Pushbert is a clown, nobody should take him seriously, I still don't understand why he's actually being paid for his "expert" opinions. His place is picking up trash on the street. That would be making most out of his talent.

They were all there but I can't remember what Fowler, PMac and Shriver said. But IIRC, Fowler didn't bother to make one :)

But I do remember that PMac went on a long, venomous rant about how Wozniacki shouldn't be No. 1 :lol: He ripped her to shreds.

We've always heard this about Murray and Wozniacki. "I feel like its they're time." "They've shown improvement by beating..." "It's sooner or later..." "They have improved mentally and physically..." When have they ever won a slam...this has been going on (in Murray's case) for what, 3 years now?

What a tired, faulty comparison.

When has Wozniacki beaten Clijsters or Serena? Murray has a winning record against Federer.

Exactly. Wozniacki has one major final and one semi final to her name, whereas Murray has three finals and five semi finals. Murray has wins over every one of the top players in the game, Wozniacki has never beaten Venus, never beaten Serena, never beaten Clijsters and never beaten Henin.

That's a little much considering Noavak, but I think he will win a slam. Either this, or Wimbledon.

I personally think since Andy dumped him as a Coach he just says all these things to actually make Andy seem to be a much worse tennis player than he actually is. Brad is always keeping the focus on the fact that Andy has yet to win a Grand Slam!

Well, they are alike in the fact that so far neither of them has won a set in the slam final (a fact that will not be changed after the Australian Open)

He'll move to number 3 this year no doubt and fed will move back to number 2 by years end. Nadull will fall to 4 because he won't get to another slam final this year and win only a couple of ATP 250 events. As for Slams any of the big 3 can win it. I think Fed might win 1 and Djokovic 2. Murray might take the other one if not then John Isner/Raonic

It's more disgraceful that the vast majority thinks that either Fedal will run forever or that Djokovic will win everything.

The truth is that we will see 3-4 new winners over the next 1-2 seasons. Wouldn't be surprised if we get a first time winner already in AO

However, I give it to Gilbert for never sticking to the safe predictions like most other experts.

This year definitely will have a sense of a end-of-the-world scenario if Murray wins two slams and becomes No.1 after the long love between Fedal has broken into a feud. I can't wait to see what more this tennis season brings. After all, it will be our last one.

hahhahahah you're such an ass holeee.

Brad actually knows a lot about tennis and has been a fantastic coach at times, and is arguably one of the best tennis analyists out there. I do agree, however, that he totally has horrible prediction skills. he is almost always wrong and the only time he gets something right is due to the fact he has thrown SO many guesses out :D

But Simon Reed picked Fed for the AO, and Brad Gilbert said he would win 2 majors, but not here in Australia, so I'm guessing Andy might win here!

Horrible prediction skills or not, this prediction was not the safest to make, but is certainly not crazy. Murray may very well just do it this year. It's not like the other three are invincible or playing on a different level.
