I saw a similar thread in another tennis forum and I thought it would be nice to have a discussion. It can be wishful thinking or realistic expectations.


Here are mine


1) Nadal: Win a non-clay court slam and reach no. 1 atleast for a portion of the year

2) Murray: Reach a slam final. Get into top 5. Win a Masters series

3) Nalbandian: Reach a slam final/ win a slam

4) Baghdatis: Get into top 10 and be seen at the semis of some important events

5) Gasquet: Be in top 8 consistently

6) Djokovic: Hang around top 5 but maybe not challenge Nadal's position :devil:

7) Federer: Keep gunning for Sampras record but let others win for a little bit.

I'll respond!

With Nadal especially, we'll have to see how he handles his injuries. Maybe not much except on clay.
With Murray, it's also how he handles his head. It was unwise, I think to ditch Gilbert. He might just get one of the Masters series.
Nalbandian, I don't expect much in the long term.
Fed will have a good year and maybe will get all 4 slams.
Djokovic will have a good year if he can improve his conditioning. He still seems to tire easily.Two Masters?
Gasquet will not move much from number 10 unless he can get more consistent.

I'd put my money on David Ferrer for 2008. He played great in China.
Davydenko and Roddick are on the way down.

Gasquet: to win a Master Serie and to make a GS final(at Wimbledon against Federer i hope).....i don't care a lot about his ranking,i would prefer him to win big titles and to be ranked outside the top 10 rather than the contrary.

You must be in the minority here:). But I really like Davydenko as well and I hope he stays in the top 10 as well.:wavey:

I'd love to see Davydenko in the top ten. Really, he's one of the most hard-working guys and deserves to be somewhere up there.

He works harder off-court than he does for his money. ;)

Nadal - Lose a maximum of 1 match on clay, win RG and reach at least the SF of either the Aussie Open and US Open.

Montcourt - Reach the top 100, play ATP events more regularly.

Muzza - Reach at least the QF of 2 slams. Have a few more decent results on clay, and perhaps challenge for a TMS title. Also reach the TMC.

Coria - Make a successful return, have some good results and work his way back into the top 50 (ambitious expectation).

Roddick - No expectations, I've given up.

Mathieu - Top 20, QF of at least 1 slam.

Yeah I see Fed letting off the throttle and letting the baby balls each win a non-clay slam.

:lol:

PMK is a choke jobbie, he can beat the mugs of this world but he bottles it against Federer (AO and RG) and Nadal (TMC and Rome)
Yeah, definitely a bottler as well as a tanker and fixer.

Hopefully he will be banned from tennis by next year anyways. Can't understand why he still has supporters on here.

He plays very attractive aggressive baseline tennis. There are some (me) who couldn't really give a flying whatever about off court crap. I watch tennis for the tennis.
