I just want Nadal and Thiem to win slam(s), don't care which or which order. What do I think will happen? I dunno yet tbh but prolly something like:

Djokovic/Med/Thiem/Nadal/Zed @ AO
Nadal/Tsits/Thiem/Djokovic/Zed @ RG
Djokovic/al.* @ W
Med/Thiem/Zed/Djokovic/Nadal @ USO

The above are ordered by likelihood, with most likely first

*There are a multitude of players who could challenge for the Wimbledon title, but ordering them seems too difficult and there are too many to fit on a single line. Plus, they're all faraway 2nd favorites anyway

Think I predicted in another thread:

Djokovic
Nadal
Djokovic
Medvedev

But I'd like something like this:

Medvedev
Thiem
Federer
Zverev

With a player born in the 90's winning a slam by beating a Big-3, I'll stick with the belief the block is broken:

Australian Open: Medvedev
Roland Garros: Tsitsipas
Wimbledon: Hurkacz
US Open: Medvedev

We really do need Thiem back! The lesson of the USO is never predict before the draw is out!

AO- Djoker beats Med
RG- Nadal beats Tstsipas/Djoker (Nadal probably retires end of season)
Wimbledon- Djoker beats FAA or Berretini
USO- Zverev beats Med

Maybe Medvedev doesn't win another grand slam in 2022. Look at his weak draw. There was no challenger until final and then he went 5+ hrs advantage on time spent on court. Some big hitter might take this guy out like Shapovalov or Sinner in next year. Let's see.

If he can't steal the AO, I dont think he wins a slam. He can't win Wimbledon/RG. So that leaves the US Open which I think Zverev wins. Med aint gonna have the mug draw next yer

An update to this:

AO: (Zverev on Djokovic’s side)- Medvedev
(Zverev on Med’s side) - Djokovic

I think Zed/healthy Thiem are going to play spoiler this year and upset top seeds before the finals.

draws are key from here on out. Too much parity. At the FO, Nadal could also have something like Thiem-Zverev-Tsitsipas or Thiem-Tsitsipas-Djokovic and I would then pick him to lose.

Wimby is the one that I think Djokovic should have but who knows, perhaps a confident Medvedev, Shapovalov or even Zverev gets him on a bad day.

Draws are so key for Djokovic and Nadal at this stage in their career. They must minimize time on court and expend minimal energy.

AO - Sir Andy Murray will triple bagel Djokovic in the final 6-0, 6-0, 6-0
FO - Sir Andy Murray will triple bagel Nadal in the final 6-0, 6-0, 6-0
W - Sir Andy Murray will triple bagel Federer in the final 6-0, 6-0, 6-0
US - Sir Andy Murray will beat Federer, Nadal and Djokovic in Qf, Semi and Final respectively by triple bageling them again.

Murray's serves would be 220MPH+ range, forehand winners at 160MPH+, topspin above 10,000 Revolutions, he would be running faster than peak Nadal on court, maybe like Bolt......

At the end of the season he will be ranked 1 with 20,000 points in the calender year and Rod Laver, Pete Sampras, Mcenroe, Lendl and Borg will make a joint statement on TV that they are declaring Sir Andy Moorey as the Unanimous GOAT across eras playing at a level nobody has ever played.
If wishes were horses.....

I'd want Novak to win them all to be perfectly honest.

But who I think? Well I've been picking Shapovalov to win USO for a while now so going with him again for next season. I absolutely think Novak will be back in Australia with a vengeance unless there's some vaccine issue and that would be incredibly sad but then that would affect a lot of the top field (5 of top 7 are unvaccinated as far as I know). After that I pick a new French Open champion and just by default will go Tsitsipas. Wimbledon I just don't see anyone getting Novak unless it's pressure going for 4 straight.

AO: Novak
FO: Tsitsipas
WMB: Novak
USO: Shapovalov

Wishing is an indulgence I can't afford.

AO - Djokovic
FO - Maybe the first time in years I have doubts. Still go with Nadal just because.

W - Medvedev
US - I'll get back to this.

Djokovic will be favourite just ahead of Med at AO would love to see that final there.
Also who else wins Wimbledon bar him ?
When did Nole become the Grass King; just by defeating Federer in 3 finals now? It seemed like he wasn't challenged in W'21; esp. after Fed went down early and hard! :-D

My point also on other thread, right now hc is tough because of draw for both Rafa and Novak.
Also because of lower ranking of Fed, Rafa, Thiem.
Tsits also don't don't like fast surface like clay so his ranking also create parity in draw like this year US Open.
This year Zverev placing and his performance in AO will decide winner
