This is not a usual prediction thread, instead, try to find some middle ground between what you hope for and what do you think will happen. How well do you think your favorite player will do in the 2020 season? What are you hoping to see from him in the next season?

So here are rules. Name your favorite player, then try to predict a number of titles you think he will win in the 2020 season, please include prominent titles you think he will win, first slams (if any) than masters. After that, you state the bare minimum you're hoping to see for your player and then the best scenario in your eyes.

I'll start.

Rafael Nadal

No. of titles: 3-7
RG, USO/AO, MC, Rome

Minimum: RG, one masters
Best case scenario: RG, USO/AO, WB, 3 or more masters.

Gael Monfils

Expectation: 1 ATP 250 or 500 title

Minimum: 1 ATP 250 title or maybe Marseille or something
Best case scenario: A Masters title like Paris or Monte Carlo but I fear that the dude may actually retire this year.

Nick Kyrgios

Number of titles: 2-3
Minimum: Two irrelevant small tournaments
Maximum: Australian Freaking Open to shut the haters up :devilish:

Beyond the titles, I hope he just keeps playing instead of deciding tennis sucks and playing video games or whatever. A "Kokkinakis banged your girlfriend" type of incident would also be very welcome :cool:

Dominic „Dominator” Thiem.

What I expect and believe is realistic:
4-6 titles, including one slam (either Roland Garros or USO), and 1-2 masters, YE rank number 3, being consistent in all 4 slams (R4 or better), being healthy especially during slams and clay season.

Minimum: win a slam. Yes, the waiting has been so long now. It’s about freaking timeit happens next year.

Djoker:
2 Slams, 2 Masters + Olympic Gold + 1 more title.
Same as this year + Olympics, and in any combination, although a record extending 8th AO title is the most important.
This is a realistic and not overly ambitious expectation.
