Will we see a 3 slam season in 2012?

2003

If recent historys true to form it will be Murrays turn to 3 slam a season out of nowhere.

Thats been the patern, a 3 slam season out of the blue by an out of form player the season before.

Not who or why, just will we see it again?

Even recent seasons that werent 3 slammers were bloody close, 2008, 2009, 2005.

it's hard to tell really. Fed is pretty much a lock for wimbledon and US open (Tsonga and Djoko won't replicate their once in a lifetime performances:devil:).
At tha AO he's vulnerable to nadal and djoko, but if he carries his form from late 2011 to the AO, he should win it. I say it's 60% chances of winning it.:worship:

Same for RG, although I think djoko won't ever be a real threat to him there, he might tire him at best. So fed's hope is for djoko to take out nadal (since nadal might fall to number 3 before RG) and then he can slaughter the serb:devil:
Anyway I think he still has a chance to take out nadal this year. The more they get old the more fed will have chances to take him out actually, since nadal's movement is crumbling faster than fed's. I say he has a 50% chance to win it.

Therefore Fed has plenty of chances to win 3. Trolls will hunt me forever if I say he can win 4, but we all have that thought in one corner of our brain.:angel::cool:

Murray hasn't won one slam so how can he win 3?
Besides almost all players stumble a little bit or a lot after their first win.

No ones winning 3 slams again this year. If federer manages to take australia then is able to get the number 2 seed over nadal he may have a great shot to grab one more of the remaining slams if nadal has to go through djoker at every slam post aussie. If nadal becomes number 3 he won't win any slams and may not even reach many finals if he's going to be paired with djoker.

The only scenerio of having a 3 slam winner this year would have to go like this:

1. Federer wins australia while the other few are either "injured", "fatigued", or off form from last year

2. Federer gets some confidence back and is able to get the number 2 ranking while nadal loses points by getting knocked out by djoker in many semi's until the french open and falls to number 3.

3. Nadal and djoker kill each other in the friday night semi at roland garros and djoker has to play a much fresher fed in a pro federer french final crowd.

4. I would like federer's chances if he has to play Nole at wimbledon or US open in a final especially after if the above few things had already occured.


But again very unlikely scenerio above. If federer wins the aussie open, grabs the number 2 seed, he will probably win a second slam if that happens this year.

It's not a lock that Novak will beat Nadal every time...

Maybe not the nadal circa 2010 who won 3 slams. But the one who now has "lost passion for the game" and has become novak's pigeon losing 6 times in a row and is only declining further with injuries and miles on his wheels I say novak is not only in nadal's head but he at this point believes so much against him that unless novak is off he won't lose to nadal.

Novak's game is the worst match up for nadal and if he does not grab a victory in the next few months and djovkokic gets to like a 10 in a row winning streak vs nadal he may never beat him again if for only psychologically being destroyed.

While parity in men's tennis sounds like a great idea, there hasn't been any since Rogie began his dominance in 2004.

The last time there were 4 different men's grand slam winners was in 2003 (Agassi, Ferrero, Rogie, and Roddick).

2004: Rogie (3) and Gaudio (1)
2005: Rogie (2), Safin (1), Rafa (1)
2006: Rogie (3), Rafa (1)
2007: Rogie (3), Rafa (1)
2008: Rafa (2), Rogie (1), Djokovic (1)
2009: Rogie (2), Rafa (1), Del Potro (1)
2010: Rafa (3), Rogie(1)
2011: Djokovic (3), Rafa (1)
2012: ???????????????????????????????????

He wouldn't be playing an exho if he was injured in any way before the AO 2012. As long as he plays there in a few days that should end any crap about him being injured/fatigued etc. If he was actually injured to any significance he wouldn't be playing till the actual aussie open mid jan 2012.

No 3 slam seasons for Murray. That's for sure LOL.

No, there won't be a 3 slam season this year.

Djokovic is recovering from injury.

Like I said, Federer will get the Australian Open to make up for his U.S. Open loss.

Nadal will be the favorite for Roland Garros.

Djokovic by this time will take Wimbledon and U.S. Open.

So it will be a year where these three guys will split them.

shiaben
12-25-2011, 02:21 AM
Though I will say this. It wouldn't be surprising to see Murray grab one this year.

1. Federer's endurance is extremely vulnerable and Djokovic exposed that during the U.S. Open. So Murray can take advantage of this if they face each other, or hope for someone to KO Federer around the QFs.

2. Nadal is injury prone so he could drop out early at a tournament.

3. Murray can defeat an injured Djokovic.

So he'll have his chances. But I think he'll win a slam in 2013. Not this year.

If fed wins AO 2012 he most likely will have a great shot to be number 2 before Roland garros. If novak and nadal end up in the same half there and kill each other in the semi I'd like federer in the final esp if its nole. You've got to think endurance issues won't really be a concern especially this early in the year and you got to bet fed worked on those issues as well over the break.

It will be the first time since 2005 that three different players won the first 3 GSs (AO Safin RG Nadal W Federer).

And we can have the first time since 2003 that 4 different players won the different GSs and from 2002 that 4 different players from different countries won thhe 4 GSs...

but let's say that Murray loses tomorrow and win the USO against one of the top3. I could not found out a year in which 4 different players played the finals of all GSs and each of them got one different title.
