Which GS will be won by somebody other than the top 3?

I think you're right gulzhan. I think Murray has a good chance there, if he doesn't lose his mind with all the pressure put on him by the media.

I agree, Murray has a chance if the top 3 happen to board the SS Minnow and go on a "3 hour tour, ....a 3 hour tour."

:haha:More than twenty percent of respondents believe the world is ending this year! I guess Federer, Djokovic and Nadal will be the only ones to win slams.

Wimbledon 2012, Murray has chance. US Open 2012, maybe Murray or Delpo can do something.

Fixed for you.

Seriously, anyone thinking that a non-Big-3 guy can win a slam during this period of the next several years is simply delusional.

Why is federer included in the title? He hasn't won a slam for over two years. The question should be 'what is the next GS that will be won be neither nadal or djokovic?'

Even Murray has more right to be included than Federer.

No way, Federer still has much more chance to win a slam than Murray.

These days Murray would be hard pressed to make another slam final in his career, let alone win another slam.

Federer reached a slam final in the FO 2011, and was one point away from getting to the finals of the USO 2011 as well.

Regardless, for the next 5-6 years, only the big 3 are winning any slams. Perhaps Federer will win one of those slams in the next several years, perhaps not, but Djokovic and Nadal are definitely going to be mopping them all up.

I plan on winning the USO 2016 myself, but surely someone else will win a slam other than the top 3 before that.

Murray or Del Potro in the US Open.

US Open 2012 I think

Rafa is the GOAT
02-26-2012, 03:59 PM
Wimbledon 2014 till then Rafa and Nole will win all the slams, seriously. So they will win the last 16 slams togheter in arow, Rafa will win around 9 or 10 and Nole 6 or 7.

I say the US 2012 because the Top 3's goals are the French Open (mainly Novak but always for Rafa), Wimbledon (mainly Roger) and the Olympics (all 3). The US Open in this case is on the backburner, which allows a great chance for Murray or del Potro.

I'm using history based on FO 2005 to present:

1. FO 2005 Nadal
2. W 2005 Federer
3. USO 2005 Federer
4. AO 2006 Federer
5. FO 2006 Nadal
6. W 2006 Federer
7. USO 2006 Federer
8. AO 2007 Federer
9. FO 2007 Nadal
10. W 2007 Federer
11. USO 2007 Federer
12. AO 2008 Djokovic
13. FO 2008 Nadal
14. W 2008 Nadal
15. USO 2008 Federer
16. AO 2009 Nadal
17. FO 2009 Federer
18. W 2009 Federer
19. USO 2009 Del Potro
20. AO 2010 Federer
21. FO 2010 Nadal
22. W 2010 Nadal
23. USO 2010 Nadal
24. AO 2011 Djokovic
25. FO 2011 Nadal
26. W 2011 Djokovic
27. USO 2011 Djokovic
28. AO 2012 Djokovic

That's 27/28 for all 3 players. If I put in Murray who has never won a GS, it would not make any sense. He's still a pretender, not a contender, at least until he notches his first GS win.

You shouldn't really underestimate past champions, especially one who consistently makes it to SF and Finals. Connors went three years between majors. Becker went six years.

With all the respect to Federer, but considering these results I am even more interested in just "Which is the next GS that won't go to Novak or Rafa"

Fair enough but the poll covers that possibility anyway. You can disregard the Federer part if you want.

BauerAlmeida

If someone besides the BIG 3 wins Roland Garros it's Ferrer.

But I don't think so. The only possibility I see is Murray or Delpo at the USO.

Perhaps. Verdasco has to get past milos "the kid" raonic as well--a tall order.

Verdasco has to get past Ramos.

02-27-2012, 02:50 PM
Wimbledon 2012 is the biggest possibility for a winner other than Djokovic/Nadal this year. Federer or Murray could win here.

Nadal is too good and consistent at the French Open and Djokovic is too good and consistent at the USO.

Just wanted to update and add info from 2004 to the period covered:

AO 2004 Federer
FO 2004Gaudio
W 2004 Federer
USO 2004 Federer
AO 2005 Safin

If you add these results to the other one I put up, this means that Federer, Djokovic and Nadal have won 30/33

So if we want to just throw out a random stat from the data here, there is usually 1 other slam winner for every 11 slams that this trivalry plays. (Gaudio, Safin, Del Potro) Of course, the number is messed up because Djokovic was a little kid being slapped around by Safin in AO 2005 after he played qualies (his first GS appearance) and Nadal lost to eventual finalist that year, Hulk Hewitt. If we only consider the peak years of these guys (2007- onwards), out of 20 slams played since then only one went to another player. We could be waiting another two years to see another slam winner.

God, I hope that's not the case. Nothing against these guys but I do want to see some other people holding the trophy on a Sunday.
