To Novak I would give a French Open, completing his career grand slam with a win over Nadal.

To Roger, I would give another Wimbledon and a few weeks at No.1 to beat Sampras' total of 286 weeks at the top.

To Nadal, another Olympic gold (since he loves his country so much) and retirement (since he hates uncle Tio). Happy times fishing and being married to Xisca.

To Murray, his first major at the USO, the one he loves most.

To Tsonga, his first major at the AO.



What about you?

You must really hate Nadal. The thing he loves most is fishing and hanging out in Mallorca. He hates the ATP calendar, its long grueling season and you want to give him a cygs? :)

- Stockholm title for Jarkko, Munich title for Flo Mayer.
- Hair growth shampoo for Rafa.
- Golden ticket to the top 10 for Dolgo.

OP, that is just being way too generous.

I like this thread, but if I was Santa I'd be a cut-back Santa to 'help' them achieve their goals, not just give them it.

So for me,

Nadal = A serve and a backhand like Murray's
Djokovic = Some stylish clothing in the form of a lifetime Adidas contract
Federer and Murray = Some mental strength 'a pair of balls' (and for Murray, a second serve at 100mph)

To Fed, 3 pounds of Lindt chocolate

To Murray, the capacity to always think positively.

To Murray I'd give Wimbledon. Take the pressure off of him there that is only going to get worse every year like it seemed to for Henman. This way he can get the monkey off his back, and become god for a year like Nadal than Novak did and be anointed the new GOAT....until someone else remotely similar comes along.

To Fed, I'd probably give him the Olympic Gold...not because I particularly want him to have it more then anyone else, but it would stop his fans harping about it.

To Sharapova, I'd give her a new shoulder so if I am going to have to watch her, I won't have to watch her become the new Dementieva serve wise with endless double faults. I'd also take away her voice, which would be a gift to myself and everyone else.

To Novak I'd give the French, just so it can be said he won all 4 like Nadal and Fed. I'd let him beat Fed in the final, giving the Fed fans something new to complain about to replace their woes about him not having Olympic gold.

To Wozniacki, I'd give well...I really can't think of anything to give her that would help her at this point...even if I gave her something she probably wouldn't know how to open it or use it...and she'd still find a way to mess it up.

And hopefully...to this forum, I give this list in hopes of a chuckle or two...if not...something else to generate replies about how wrong and unjust it is...although it is meant partially in jest.

Wozniacki-a Grand Slam title, so some folks can stop saying she's not worthy of the number one ranking.
Federer-some Wimbledon trophy-shaped rattles for his daughters.
Nadal-some underwear that actually fit him.
Murray-a Wimbledon title and a razor (he's got the ugliest beard I've ever seen)
Djokovic, Tsonga, and Monfils-the starring roles in the next "Three Stooges" movie.

I would give Federer some natural talent and ability...

It's a shame that he had to grind, destroy his body and use gamesmanship to win his major titles to only be interim GOAT.

Shriekapova - agree, muzzled.
Julia Gorgeous - Slam wins
Federer - Aces and return winners on match points.
Nadal - a win- any one, any where over Noel :-)
Djoker - A thank you note for the imitations. Better volleys. Some class for his player box. More victories for his sidekick Tipsy so that we hopefully don't have to see the nauseating level of Noel-worship out there.

To Roger I would give a US Open, winning the final in a 5th set tiebreaker (actually, every match will go to a fifth set tiebreak, Warrior Fed!), and because he's my favourite player I'll also give him the Olympic Gold medal in singles.

To Djokovic I would give a French Open so he can have all four.

To Murray I would give the Australian Open, beating Nadal in the semi final and Djokovic in the final. Both in 5 sets. Murray winning his first major will be special enough to begin with, but being pushed to the edge and winning it in such tight circumstances will make it all the more special.

To Nadal I would give Wimbledon as it's the most prestigious tournament in the world, but it's also the major where he is arguably most loved and would mean far more to him I think than even a record breaking 7th French Open.

I'd give Del Potro a Davis Cup victory, winning it for Argentina in a 5th set in a 5th deciding rubber.

I'd give Mardy Fish a masters win.

In 2013...

I'd give Roddick Wimbledon, I'd give Nalbandian a US Open, Federer a French Open (FINALLY beating Nadal in the final), and Tsonga an Australian Open. Then I'd give Nadal a Davis Cup victory, winning it in the same circumstances as Del Potro in 2012. And Murray would get the WTF.

US Open for Nalbandian.

A semi or final appearance in a slam final for Blake.

Another Wimbledon title for Fed.
