Finally some good competition. Hopefully this can happen several years in a row like 2000-2003. Best eras are the ones where no-one dominates.

Wow, it didn't occur to me I guess we can call USO unpredictable now, not AO that usually had a surprise champion

Now WTF decides who is player of the year.

Top 4 are pretty close if we look what happened on big tournaments

Djokovic - 1 slam, 2 slam finals
Murray - 1 slam, 1 slam final, Olympic gold.
Federer- 1 slam,Olympic silver
Nadal- 1 slam, 1 slam final

Whoever grabs WTF, is a champ. Even if he is not year end # 1

For example,if Murray wins WTF, and Fed is year end # 1, Murray would still be moral winner of the year IMO.

This is a good variation because Murray always had the potential to win slams even against the top 3. He now officially joins them

But Berdych and Tsonga are huge talents who deserve slams in my opinion, it would just be mixed emotions if it comes at the cost of Nadal retiring and Federer barely able to defend anymore and Djokovic just mentaly and phsicaly drained from all grinding at 26-27.

Soderling winning 2013 RG would really be more worthy than Ferrer, it really would leave a smile on my face.
Tsonga has too many glaring weaknesses in his game to win a Grand Slam (backhand, movement, ROS).
That's sad because he has the serve, the forehand,the net play and the agressive and strong mindset required to win a GS.
But with defenders of the quality of Nadal, Djoker,Murray or even Federer, it's fucking hard for a guy like him to win a GS.
He and Berdych probably would have won at least one during the 90's.

If they slowed down the clay, as it should be and speed up the hardcourts it would help the game.

Fat chance although it would be great.
