I'm bringing back a MTF tradition of predicting all the 15 'Big' Tournaments next year. With the write off of the majority of last year, we should hopefully have a full season with the Vaccine. Shout out to PileDrive for the original idea.

There's been a lot of the younger generation, will they dominate the slams will the big 3 keep their grip? Is next year Sinner /Musetti /Alcaraz big breakthrough; can Sinner win a Masters?

Grand Slams:

Australian Open
: Thiem
Roland Garros: Nadal
Wimbledon: Djokovic
US Open : Djokovic

Masters 1000:

Indian Wells : Thiem
Miami: Djokovic
Monte Carlo: Nadal
Madrid: Thiem
Rome: Zverev
Montreal: Tsitsipas
Cincinnati: Medvedev
Shanghai: Djokovic
Paris: Medvedev

WTF: Zverev
Olympic Gold: Djokovic

Lets see how close posters can get to 15/15.

You don't seriously believe Djoke is winning those last two Slams do you
I'll play. I think Djokovic is going to have a monster year since he had disappointments last year, Federer is limited, Nadal will never win another slam off of clay due to USO being faster, and the reality that none of the rest of the field has won a Slam with any of the Big Three in tournament the whole way.

Grand Slams:

Australian Open Djokovic
Roland Garros: Nadal
Wimbledon: Djokovic
US Open : Djokovic

Masters 1000:

Indian Wells : Depends a lot on when it is played. Thiem
Miami: Djokovic
Monte Carlo: Nadal
Madrid: Thiem
Rome: Djokovic
Montreal: Nadal
Cincinnati: Medvedev
Shanghai: Djokovic
Paris: Medvedev

WTF: Thiem
Olympic Gold: Djokovic

I still think he's favourite in those two, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't win a slam though.

Why does djokovic suck at the us open? I just dont understand.He is really good at hardcourts.
A lot of his issues with the open are the wind, he's always been a terrible player in the wind & some important matches have ended up being played in extreme windy conditions. For example both the US Open 12/13 finals were in wind, I think with the roof this will be less of problem though.

Suck is kind of harsh considering he’s made 8 finals there (same as AO) and had a streak of like 10straight SF or better there. And the finals he lost all “made sense”
2007 final he had huge chances in first two sets but understandably got tight and lost to Fed
2010 great match but Nadal was better
2012 Murray handled the conditions better (still somehow eked out a 5th set after going down 0-2)
2013 he really should have pushed it to 5th set and then who knows, but Nadal was great
2016 was a weird one, tbh he was kinda lucky to even reach the final

i do agree he should have more than 3 titles all things considered
