Nalbandian's first slam?

I think before all is said and done that Nalby will win one--but which one? He's clearly a threat at all of them (semis or better at all 4, n'est ce pas?) but which major do you think he's most likely to win?

I'm going to go with the Australian.

he has about equal chances in all, and I imagine it would eventually depend on the draw, weather, etc.
Has gone deep in all (I don't give him a higher chance at W even though he reached the final there)

Not sure he will win one but if I had to choose it would be the Austrailian

Think Wimbledon is the least likely even though he reached the final, just doesnt win enough free points off the serve to go the whole way.

I'd say Wimbledon cause it's the least physically exhausting slam so the only one where Nalby can actually be somewhat fit in the semi or final :)

If he gets his head and body right, then all ;)

But I think US Open, he had a match point and would have beaten JCF :lol:

He has an equal chance at every slam. He is trully the only player that doesn't care what surface is underneath him. Under slightly different circumstances, he could have won all the slams by now.

Australian Open - for two years in a row he has lost in 5 sets to the eventual finalist with good chances to win.

French Open - very good chance in 2004 and could have beaten Federer this year.

Wimbledon - best slam result in 2002 but was overwhelmed by the occasion. He proved last year that he can beat Hewitt on a grass court.

US Open - had a match point against Roddick in 2003 to reach the final where he probably would have beaten a tired Ferrero.

Although recently I get the impression that he's starting to prefer the slower surfaces. His best fast court results came 3 years ago whereas his best slow court results came this year. I reckon the AO is his best chance.

Wimbledon..takes the least physical fitness, so easiest for Nalby.

Huh? You purposely forgot Federer didn't you? Gasquet is another person that comes to mind.

Anyway, I agree with other people here that AO is Nalby's best chance.

I don't actually think he is destined to be a grand slam champion but if he were to win one then the Australian Open would be my bet.

one day when maybe neither of federer or nadal reach the latter stages or are not playgin Nalby will ahve a favorable draw that doesnt it too much out of him
he will win
It is a matter of time
my guess is it more likely not to be on grass

I'm not sure if he will win a GS someday

I love Nalbandian, but I don't think he'll ever win a Slam. That being said, I think if he does win a Slam, that victory will come at the AO.
