Talking about finalists predictions is pointless without a draw printed

A : Federer
F : Nadal (this year would be the last I think)
W : Federer
U : Djokovic
YEC : Nalbandian (other participants: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Roddick, Gasquet, Davydenko)

biggest flop : Canas

most succesful : I don't know what did you mean by saying 'most succesful'. No.1 at the end of the year? Most slams? Olympic gold? TMC?

1st to beat Federer : Djokovic

Most titles : Federer and Djokovic

Most improved : Gulbis (OK, I'm on bandwagon right now ;) )

New young gun : Korolev (if he counts as new and young)

Top 10 @ end of 2008 : god only knows

Until Raja gets defeated at a non-clay slam(AO, Wimbly, USO), you have to assume his streak there of 8 in a row continues(2005 Wimbly-2007 US open)

Oh, it was really hard to think about it, because one player you like, the other player not so.

Someone take the category "Comeback". Yeah, Ancic has the best chance to this, I think. Also I hope for Safin and Hewitt :cool: , either top or flop, what do you mean to both players?
