Coria !!!!

Two easy options: Coria or Nadal. Two riskier options: Cañas or Fernando Gonzalez.

Rafa! Though it was a close call with Coria.

04-06-2005, 01:56 PM
TIM HENMAN: Average/bad chances to win Wimbledon. Others GS nope.
DAVID NALBANDIAN: Good on all surfaces but he chokes always in finals.
GUILLERMO CORIA: Excellent chances to win French Open.
JOACHIM JOHANSSON: Very good chances to win US Open. Good chances to win Australian Open and Wimbledon.
IVAN LJUBICIC: Good/average chances to win US Open and Australian Open.
GUILLERMO CANAS: Average chances to win rench Open.
RAFAEL NADAL: Excellent chances to win French Open and Average chances to win US Open.
MARIO ANCIC: Very good chances to win Wimbledon. Average chances to win Australia n Open.
FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Average/bad chances to win Australian Open and US Open.

I pick Coria because he will win French Open this year or next year.

maybe Coria? :shrug:
I would fancy him, but it's hard to say, we saw nothing from him on clay yet this season...

04-06-2005, 03:26 PM
Gonzalez (I wish :angel: )

Nadal and Ancic ;)

04-06-2005, 04:13 PM
it'd have to be on the clay.....its very tough to see a first time winner at the other slams for a'd mean Federer, Hewitt, Roddick & Safin will have lost out and its tough to see that happening to all 4 of them

Coria maybe......before Nadal I think

04-06-2005, 07:32 PM
nalbandian and vliegen (sorry, couldnt

Corey Feldman
04-06-2005, 07:33 PM
er Henman :o

04-06-2005, 07:39 PM
why not...wimbledon, watch out..

04-06-2005, 07:42 PM
Coria, please!

04-06-2005, 07:47 PM
The only chance Coria has to win a slam is at the french and he better win that in a couple of years or else he doesn't have a chance since he will be moving slower and slower...

04-06-2005, 07:53 PM
pimmy pim. COMEON!!!!!!!!!! :bounce:

04-06-2005, 08:52 PM
So... This year Coria wins Roland Gaross, Henman wins Wimbledon (they both deserve it like noone else), USOpen goes to Pim Pim (very unprobable, but I like him).

And that leaves Roger without Grand Slam Title this year ;)

04-06-2005, 09:02 PM
Rafa or Ivan.:angel:

04-06-2005, 09:17 PM
one word: NADAL :yeah:

04-07-2005, 12:54 AM
coria or nadal... it's about time that coria wins the french.

Nadal is a close second choice, but needs to improve that serve of his, as well as that backhand.

04-07-2005, 12:57 AM
i'd like to see ancic win one

04-07-2005, 01:08 AM
It's time Coria won Roland Garros. Him not winning RG one year would be like Corretja not winning it...very sad :sad:

04-07-2005, 01:33 AM
I vote for Nalbandian. He is great in any surfaces. Hope he win slam with a surprise win to Super-Fed! GO DAVID!

04-07-2005, 01:36 AM
David Nalbandian, probably one of the only "real" all surface players. Go David :yeah:

04-07-2005, 02:02 AM
I hope Coria because I like him, but it's hard to say.

That Roland Garros final last year really, really hurt him mentally...

I voted for Coria because I think Nadal is still a little raw and needs more time.

04-07-2005, 07:12 AM
Well in the French Open anything goes. So you definitely have to put the spaniards/gouchos first slate there.

After that - Johansson, Ljubicic, Ancic and Nadal are the players I feel have the best shot at winning a GS.

Ljubicic and Henman's time is running out.

After Wimbledon, you might as well scratch off Henman because he's done.

04-07-2005, 08:40 AM
Robby Ginepri :)

04-07-2005, 09:29 AM
Coria or Nadal...?

04-07-2005, 12:56 PM
pim pim's a hot candidate...nadal should first win when he's leading 2-0 sets and 4-1 :D

04-07-2005, 12:56 PM
coria had his it's over (for ever) :D

Nalbandian. Still very young (23?) Can play on all surfaces, experienced at GS with wim f, US Sf, RG Sf, triple Oz QF,all since Wim 2002, a great record. And remember last year he was injured, misseç a lot of the season and still finished in top ten, so if and when he´s healthy he will really do some damage and I reckon he´ll win GS in next two years.
Then Nadal. At Rg. But not this year.
