Four individual GS winners in 2012, not since 2003.
 
Times are changing? No more Fed/Nadal/Djokovic hogging all the GS titles in a single year?

Great year all I can say, it is never bad to have some variety in anything. But due to MTF's standards and so many Noletards/Rafatards cry about how fields weak and there are no winners yet anytime someone new comes and wins, the excuses pour like rain and they insert shit like "fluke" "luck" "clown" etc

Instead of a big four, it probably means with Federer and Nadal past their primes there isn't any dominant players anymore.

Poor Nalbandian, Roddick, Gonzalez, Haas, etc, if only they were in ther primes right now.

Well Feds days of winning multiple slams in a year has been over for quite a while. Whether Nadal can win off clay again is a major question mark.

Hopefully we get a variety of winners. Better for the sport if more than 3 to 4 guys can win.

Now we need Berdych and Tsonga to win slams. Ferrer winning RG would be ok too.

I love how the top 4 won the grandslams in the order that corresponded with their ranking at the beginning of the season: 1. Novak, AO 2. Rafa, RG 3. Fed, WM 4. Murray, UO. Each excelling at their own favorite surface.

It might be fun with variation but all that happening means a golden era of tennis would be over. In their peak these top players just wont give any slam to the likes of Ferrer (!) and Berdych/Tsonga.

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.

I believe the transition was last year fluke season. This is the beginning of an era of parity.

I don't think Fedtards are claiming the field is weak bro, or else they would undermine Federer's achievements? Did you think about that?

I think Murray will have the best year of his career in 2013 and win 2 slams, become #1.

Yeah, I noticed that too. haha Neat coincidence that is for sure.

It is really nice to have 4 different winners in one year. It shows that this really is the Top 4!! Let's hope we will add more new GS winners in the future.
