Look at what I found!
The very first Professional tennis discussion on Tennisopolis.
2011 predictions? Federer and Nadal will be in the finals of most of the slams. I would love to see Roddick to take home some W's as well!
Wow, that puts things into perspective. I think that was the year that Nalby won the masters series and beat Fed like 2or 3 times in a row - and it was also right after Ferrer made it to the USO final or semi-final.... Guess this will never come to pass.
Too bad Nalby or Ferrer didn't do it. They have a very good game.
I see a trend happening. Federer owned the 2005,2006,and 2007 season. Nadal has pretty much owned the slams since 2008 to the present. I think Nadal will own the next 2 years and then it will be interesting to see who will fill the voids.
Nadal can hold onto the next two years if he keeps improving like he has. But I do expect Federer to meet Nadal more often than they have, and he is dangerous again. I expect Murray, Soderling, Berdych, Djoko to improve bit by bit. They can throw a wrench in between for sure.
It's very hard to tell who are the newcomers are but I like Dmitrov, who has moved 100 spots up the rankings.
Yes, i agree with you Tim. I also think that Russian guy, Andrey Golubev. He has beaten a few top ten players already, including: Soderling, Ferrer, and. Davydenko.
Golubev has a very nice backhand! Thanks for pointing him out for me.
