Default No One Defended a Title Post USO 2012

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe no player was able to defend a title during the post US Open hard court season. Hmmm....

Ah, I see.

Anyway, thread has no purpose anymore because the OP's title has been contradicted.

What's even more interesting is that Wimbledon and the USO have not been defended since 2007 and 2008 respectively...

Default Re: No One Defended a Title Post USO 2012

this isn't the frauderer weak era, where you can win consecutive grand slams without even trying

these days, players are fitter, stronger and better

the grand slams were split this year, and rightly so

different winners each year means frauderer will retire quicker

good the game, in short

Past his prime Federer and the rest of the tour have not defended these two slams. Past his prime Federer is understandable due to age but the rest in their prime are not. They are not good enough to defend these two slams, considered the big two slams by many.

Well, Nadal and Del Potro didn't have the chance to defend Wimbledon 2008 and USO 2009 due to injury.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic lost close finals (especially Fed and Nole) the year after they won the US Open, etc... Federer losing to Berdych in Wimbledon 2010 was the worst loss from a defending champion really.

He was almost 29. Way past his peak. I'm sure 29 year old Djokovic and Murray will have QF losses at some slams by then. Will Nadal even be active at that stage? Who knows. 25 year old Nadal and Djokovic not defending Wimbledon and the USO is startling.
