Murray is the best player on grass.  If he is fully fit from the off in 2014 then watch out, two or even three slams is possible.

Like it Moozza but.......realistically.......

Djoker is the best Indoor so he should win Oz
Rafa is the best on Clay so he should win RG
Andy is the best on Grass so he should win Wimby
As for USO they're all equal so lets say Andy.

Simply can't see anyone else winning a Slam for at least another 2 or 3 years

I like your optimism Mooza, especially Andy winning RG!

I think maybe:

AO: Nadal
FO: Nadal
W: Murray
USO: Djokovic

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

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.

You're forgetting Murray's form on grass. Over the past 2 years, he's easily the best grass-court player in the world.

Wimbledon 13 - won
Queens - won
Olympics 12 - won
Wimbledon 12 - R/U

He's won the last five sets off Djokovic on grass. Of course, the big imponderable is how he shapes up vs Rafa on grass. This we don't know. But what we do now is that Nadal has gone out to lowly ranked opponents early on, two years running, at Wimbledon. He can't be that hot on grass.

AO - Murray (only if he's 100% fit), otherwise Djokovic
FO - Nadal (but, this may be the last time. Could be anyone else, but not AM)
WB - Murray (again only depending on his fitness. He is currently recognised the best on grass
US - Del Porto (but very uncertain and no stand out candidate).

AO - Andy has a good chance if he's fit. Djokovic (again, yawn) if not.
FO - Nadal (double yawn with nobs on)
SW19 - Andy, best grass court player in the world now, no doubt. Giving Nadal a belting in the semi's would be fab, but I can't see Nadal getting that far.
USO - Andy or Djokovic (that fence I'm sat on has splinters Smile ) or maybe Delpo as an outside bet.

Only because it plays like an Indoor Court.  The surface and atmosphere are similar.

Ah, I was wondering where you were coming from.  All surfaces have been slowed down some what so could also suit Rafa too. Nole seems to thrive on the watch me rip my shirt off atmosphere that the AO generates.
