Monfils if he's playing well at the right time, and he plays the style of tennis when he gets the crowd involved and feeds off of that!

Isner could win the USO if he gets a Top 10 seed. The fifth-set TB rule helps him.

After his stunning run to the final of Delray Beach, it has to be the excitement machine that is Marinko Matosevic.

Ajde..???

cannot believe how much mugray sucks at slams

he has a 8-1 finals record at the masters
better than any of the top 3 by far
(nole is shockingly bad 10-7 at master shield finals)
(nadal is a shockingly bad 19-10- was 18-6 untill nole 2.0 showed up)
(federer is a shockingly bad 18-12 at master shield finals)

this is why mugray is a such a mug)

nadal doesnt leads tier 1 events- its lendl with 22 master shields equivilents
mac is joint second with 19

I hope this is not serious question.

Of course Murray has biggest chance. I think if he is going to win slam it will be HC slam, but still 3x in row SF at Wimbledon means he has shot there at least.

Monfils- won´t win RG with Nole and Rafa along, even if he will finally changed his attitude and stop clowning arround i can´t see him win there.
Isner- won´t get much better than he currently is, and in this form QF is best what he can hope for, in this era you needs to have return, movement and deffense, he won´t win USO thanks to his serve only, there is no way he can beat 2x big 4 in row

Tomic-right now his movement and fitness sucks to win AO in heat, slow HC, maybe in future he can get better, but still AO after RG i think is his worst slam and will be in future- don´t forget he will be under pressure all the time-much bigger than ISner or Monfils-which are not top 5 players, we all expect from him to be top 5 so he will be big home favorit- just like Murray at Wimby so it will be mentally very tough in future for him to play there how he will be better. Also i am not sure if he will be able to improove his movement and deffense enought to have shot at slow HC in heat.

Well, Tomic is better on grass, and Isner is better on Clay, and Monfils has mad clown disease, but I don't think any of them are slam contenders regardless.

Murray probably has a better chance at the hardcourt slams, but if he has a chance at Wimbledon. Murray really should be able to beat Nole or Nadal on grass(which is where neither of them are really at their best), and Fed may well go out to someone else like he's done the last couple of years

Yes, someone who's reached 5 Wimbledon finals and won 2 of them is "not really at their best" on grass. :confused: Murray is yet to reach even one final.

Nadal's better on grass than Murray. It's a fact that their results bear out. Murray's very good though and he could do it - he could beat Rafa and Nole there - not sure about him beating Fed at Wimbledon....

Nadal has a negative record in Wimbledon finals. 2 wins but 3 losses. So it's not that far-fetched that he might lose again if he reaches the final there. His record at the end of his career could look like Connors' record in Wimbledon finals.

Obviously Murray. And I dont think him winning one is that much of a stretch either.

He lost to prime Federer twice when he was adapting to the grass, still made it close despite being a clay court specialist/grass court novice.

And the loss to Djokovic, well, that one was terrible, we all know he's in his head. But Murray? Nah, he hasn't got the game to beat Rafa there, not even taking the weight of the nation into account. Nadal's forehand is so devastating on grass, Murray will be overpowered every time over 5 sets.
