It is unlikely for any of them, but...

Roddick >> Hewitt >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Safin

Roddick has the best chance, though I can't really see any of them winning another slam.

I say Safin only because if he put forth the effort to get into better shape he really could challenge for slams again, but none of them are very likely scenarios at all.

Roddick. But I only say this because Hewitt and Safin are pretty much done. Roddick might have a shot if there were some unexpected losses. I think next year is crucial for Roddick. If he's ever going to win a GS again, it has to happen pretty soon.

Their chances are better than my chances. But I say, not just because he's my favorite. But he's been consistently in the top 5 and been going deep in at least 2 GS in the past 5 or 6 years. Besides, he's the only one I think who could keep up or improve his level of play over 2 weeks. I'd still love to see Hewitt win the AO before he retires. Someone that hard-working and dedicated to his country deserves to win his nation's slam.

This poll depressed me a little :lol:
Me too! :scratch:

thank goodness "Only if half the top 20 retires and the other half get injured " was part of the poll. :rolls:

Yeah, Roddick has the best chance but very unlikely!

I voted for Hewitt.

I understand that Roddick is currently performing the best from this group. However, I believe that Hewitt is more likely than Roddick to beat Federer, Nadal, and/or Djokovic. I consider those three to be the primary slam stumbling blocks.

(Safin didn't need any votes for this poll :p)

I think Roddick has the best "chance", but it's still not a very good chance. If Federer falls early at Wimbledon, I think Andy has as good a shot as anyone else.

Its Safin, Hewitt, and then Roddick. Safin has the talent to go Nalby during a two week stretch. That's something Roddick and Hewitt can't do. Even if Roger were to fall, I doubt Roddick would get through Novak, Nadal, Gasquet, Nalby, and even Hewitt at Wimby. Couple that with Murray, Marco, Fererr, and Gonzo, and I think Roddick's days as contending are over.
