He's 29 next month too. In a way I'm cheered because it could mean a longer tennis life for Andy. But practically I'd think this year was Stan's best chance of getting more slams.
Think Rafa betta watch out at RG, I really do.
Apparently no one has a chance at taking RG unless Nadal retires soon (a possibility for the injury prone player).
Despite Novak losing 7-9 in the fifth he doesn't appear to have a snowball's chance either.
I personally think he could do it this year as it will be all he & his team is thinking about.
How could he not be?
Certainly it was the obvious goal last year, hence the dip after the loss.
He alone can beat Nadal now on clay having done so in finals before.
Its been building up to a RG win for Novak in his increasingly impressive results also.
And If he does win it, then he truly will be one of the greatest players ever regardless of how many more slams he wins.
Novak is hurting now, he has lost his safety blanket in the AO. I predict he will come back more dangerous than ever & shouldn't be written off, but we shall see.
Pleased for Wawrinka, it was well deserved after taking out both Novak and Berdych. But felt a little for Rafa I have to admit.
Waw's a lucky ******* however (a la Federer's Wimbledon when he practically played under the roof for most of the tournament, more so in fact).
It's a delpo anomaly this slam of his.
