I can't believe it's almost two years since we could witness some proper tennis on grass.

I believe Wimbledon 2021 could be one for the ages.

With the FO most likely to be postphoned, even the clay specialists can focus fully on grass, trying to adapt their game and match the grass specialists.

Imagine, witnessing tennis on the holy ground, with a crowd roaring. With the vaccination progressing so smootthly in GB, this is a very likely scenario.

So many stories to be told.

Djokovic, wanting to defend the title, making a step closer to certain GOAThood and cementing his legend status

Federer, coming back from the grave again, wanting to avenge his most brutal defeat two years ago, which still has me in ruins

Nadal, wanting to prove that he can pull it off on quick, low bouncing, too, and hence sending "he is just a clay specialist" tards like me into unimaginable ruins

Medvedev, Thiem, Tsitsipas, Zverev all want to prove that they can go for all on the surface that requires the most skill.

And then there is, of course, Nick Kyrgios, whose unpredictable game shines the most in Wimbledon, and whose underarm serves will have the world vibrating with pure joy.

I can't fucking wait, people. I will be glued in front of the TV for two weeks.

How excited are you? Please share your thoughts :)

There shouldn't be two RG before having Wimbledon again and for that reason alone it should be postponed in my opinion. Felt the same way about AO and USO even though they went ahead. Of course they'll try to have it on time because the French are selfish. Anyway, yeah I'm excited at the thought of it if indeed it does go smoothly and everyone is healthy with crowds present. It's tough right now to be optimistic about Federer. Atleast for me. I hope he can show us all some magic one last time. The potential is there for it to be super special. Fingers crossed.

First of all, congrats to your username!

Personally, I would prefer the FO to go on as planned. We will suffer anyways, no matter if it happens in May or in Autumn. Although it would be intriguing to see what the clay specialists would do if they have more time to prepare for grass. I can imagine that the overall quality would be better in Wimbledon.

Concerning Federer, I have no clue what to expect... let's just wait and see.

I actually look forward to seeing Murray play on grass, probably one last time, and I'm curious if he can progress a couple of rounds.

why nobody can Djokovic but Federer or Nadal which he beaten both at Wimbledon in recent times. only chance of it being a the greatest Wimbledon ever is if Nadal vs. Federer final like 2008 happened which is unlikely.

Hardly anyone knows how to play on grass, so it always sucks.
All the young stars prefer clay and hardcourt.

It's tricky , from historical and fandom point of view it could be .Many things at stake , only slam in which all the big 3 have chances . Also from the game play and ambient POV , it can also be the most unique . But sadly to say , from the competitive and overall level of players standpoint it sucks compared to past .

Stakes won't be any higher, all 3 feel like they have a chance, not like AO and RG

But I'm just focused on Marbella and Cagliari right now

I agree playing on grass is the most challenging task in tennis, and it requires extreme talent to do it properly. The timing has to be perfect, and you have to be able to improvise and produce attacking tennis.

But this time, maybe everybody has a bit more time to adjust? Could be good for Nadal, he needs some practice on grass to aim for the title.

If djokovic slips and crashes out of wimbledon early this year nadal will win . Nadal just needs to get to the quarters , by then the grass should be worn a bit and slowed down and should play like a medium fast hard court. Nadal is being under looked .

I wish you were correct, but I highly doubt it. Not that your wishes were not sincere, I am sure they are. But with the virus, I doubt if we will have an entire field. That is my humble opinion, and I hope I am incredibly wrong. There will be more lockdowns, I think alot of relevant players may say politely "no thank you".

Should be a good one with Murray back in the mix.

if he brings his B game or better I don’t see anyone stopping him on this surface.
quite a bold one. are there challengers played on grass too?
