But it's very unusual after 9 years. Poor Andy.

Roger won't win Wimbledon if he does not improve his form. The way he started the year and ended last year, I had so much hope. But the last couple of months have been shit. I love Roger but his draw is not the easiest either. If he had to face only Nole or Rafa for a win, maybe. But he will have to beat both.

Bump. Federer did in fact become No. 11 on this list. Del Potro is the only current candidate for #12, unless Hewitt works some sort of magic.

Great reading of the game there, gentlemen.

Who will be next to join this list? Del Potro, assuming he is able to stay injury free and regain his very best form? Or maybe Nadal?? Is it possible he is unable to find his very best after such a long injury lay off, and will take another season before he can truly challenge for majors again? I doubt it, personally, but...

Ferrero will play his last tournament in Valencia next week, so no more slams for him.

For Nadal to join, he would have to win something post-FO 2014. FO 2014 would not qualify as it has to be more than two years. Not impossible, perhaps, but certainly not imminent.

Murray in 3 years could do it.

Also Dimitrov in 2020 after his last slam of 18 being wimbledon 2017

Don't understand why people are mentioning Fed. He had only 1 season without a slam.

Only one whole season perhaps, but still a 2.5 year gap between AO '10 and W '12, I think masterclass saw that as being close enough to 'about three years'.
