is any other player in the mix? maybe rafa with a fourth consecutive french open title? baghdatis for cyprus?
Possibly, but not necessarily. There are other decently prominent athletes who play football/soccer, basketball, and even recently a swimmer who broke the European record (Cavic). So it's up for grabs. I can't imagine Ivanovic carrying it - she's probably going to go for the "girly" role as Eurovision MC or something of that nature. If Djokovic wins the next two (
) slams, I'm 100% sure he's carrying. If "only" one, then very likely. If none, then not likely at all.
