French open - Rafa Nadal (if unhealthy or does not play or not near his best, then Novak Djokovic)
Wimbledon - Andy Murray
US open - Novak Djokovic

AO: Djoko or Murray
RG: Nadal or Djoko
W: Fed or Murray (or Nadal if he's back 100%)
USO: Djoko or Murray

It feels like one should be able to insert names other than the top 4 by now. But I still don't see it somehow.

AO: Djokovic
RG: Nadal
W: Murray
USO: Delpo

not going to happen so easily. Like Berdych said, its pretty demanding to beat 2 of the top 4 back to back (quarters & semis). 3 of 4 is virtually impossible for anyone outside!

Also the top 4 bring out their A games at slams. Really hard IMO!!

I agree but I keep wondering if Delpo or Raonic or even Cilic are gonna step up to the plate. I guess Delpo would be the most likely to do it.

Very possibly they have an outside chance to take out 1 out of top 4 in their QF meeting, but cannot sustain the intensity and consistency at semis or finals.

any one outside of top 4 has to really go through at least 3 guys. Once Nadal Steps in, it going to be a bloody war out there! No more free semis walk through for Murray or Djoker like they had in Wimbly or US open.

The Donald has more of a chance to win a title next year than Nadal does. Lol.

Querrey's a stretch but Dimitrov is ok? :)

I just think since it's a low bouncing fast court it'd be the best place to have a SQ miracle :)

A guy can dream!!!
