Berdych should be next at USO and Delpo if somehow be top 8 seeded, maybe will finally make Wimbledon QF.

gonzález and nalbandian seem to be among the few of that list who never won a GS

also, shouldn´t djokovic be on it?

Three of my four favorites are on the list, two in the win section (Federer and Nadal) and one (Juan Carlos Ferrero) who at least made the quarterfinals. Hopefully "Pics" will make the list tomorrow.

Updated with players one result away from moving up to SF, F and W as well as QF.

It's fairly incredible that four people have made the list in just the past 3 slams (and a further one moving up a category)...

Great thread :yeah:

thanks :)

Berdych after reaching all 4 QFs at the USO, has a chance straight away to reach all 4 SFs here at the AO.

Sampras couldn't make a single RG final :superlol: and only one SF, which leads me to believe it was a fluke. What a clay mug :facepalm:

Haas with a chance to do it vs Youzhny (who happened to complete his QF set last Wimbledon) :)

Wawrinka with a chance to complete his QF set at Wimbledon if he wins against Gasquet at the French.

And Stand the man is now only a QF of Wimby away from being included into this list. But to reach that will be difficult as he is uncomfortable on the green stuff.

You can't say he's bad on grass simply because he was unlucky with his draws and was eliminated by grass giants Melzer, Bolelli and Istomin the last three years ;) And he did get a win over Starace in that period :lol:

Del Potro makes the QFs list, whilst Ferrer is one win away (against the former) from upgrading to the SFs list. Nando, meanwhile, now needs a QF at the french to make the list.

Now we know why Tsonga is playing so bad. He is tanking for USO.

Del Potro is also 1 result (AO) away from the SF category.
