Thugdal with two slams? No thanks.

Australian Open - Djokovic
French Open - Djokovic
Wimbledon - Janowicz
USO - Murray

No slams for Thugdal or Muger.

Thugdal winning Wimbledon?
You mean like he has done twice already? Alongside 3 other finals as well.

People seem to fail to realize that Nadal has been more successful at Wimbledon than he has been at the AO (and US Open by a margin).

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Yes, and his form in the past 2 years really suggests that he is going to repeat the feat 4 years since he last lifted the title.

Even in 2011 when he made the Final he was owned by Djokovic who is not even that good on grass.

Who's going to beat Nadal at Wimbledon though?

I just don't see him losing in the early rounds against an outsider again. Of course Djokovic can beat him but grass isn't his best surface and I can see Nadal getting the better of him if they play, I think there's also a decent chance that Djokovic might go out before the final next year (against Andy perhaps) so then they won't even play. Andy could beat him as well but there's always that big doubt with Andy playing against Nadal, I put Nadal a big favourite against Andy still in a slam.

With the way Nadal was playing last year he looks easily good enough to win SW19 again.

Who's going to beat him at Wimbledon? There's plenty of players that could. In the top 10, I can definetely see Djokovic, Tsonga, Murray and Del Potro beating him on grass, heck even Berdych, if he doesn't play like a ****, or Frauderer, if he can find his top form can beat Nadal on the green. Other players I see beating him on grass include Janowicz.

Also I'm not sure why you're bringing up the way he played last year as a measurement of how he is going to do on grass this year. Let me remind you that the majority of his good form came on hard courts, which play very differently to grass. Besides, Nadal did fall off to the end of the season and he has never backed up a really good season with another really good season, the following seasons are usually pretty poor for him.

LOL.  Has Dimitrov even won a bog standard ATP event yet? I note ProdigyEng is going for Janowicz to win Wimbledon which is maybe more likely than Dimitrov winning the USO but not by much IMO!

I cant see anyone threatening the big 3 this year. In fact I'll be surprised if any other player even reaches a Slam final. Delpo would be the only possibility for me but he doesn't look like he is physically strong enough to win a Slam. Berdych? No chance. Tsonga? No chance. Ferrer? No chance.

Janowicz has made a Slam Semi-Final, and has made it past the 2nd round in all but 2 of  the slams he has played.

Dimitrov has made it past the 2nd round of slams only once.

Got to face it though Nadal is a lot, lot more likely to win Wimbledon next year than Janowicz is. That's why Nadal is 6 to 1 and Janowicz is 50 to 1.
