Do you think Wimbledon 2022 will be the worst slam again?

Ok no hate here. I read here (the best and worst of the year thread) that many of you were bored by Wimbledon and chose it as a biggest disappointment of the year. All rivals gone by r4 and Novak didn't struggle for it.
Wimbledon is an epic event but this year was subpar.
We have no clue what happens but what do you predict? Another easy path for Novak and the most predictable slam with the least amount of fight?
AO, FO, USO - I can see a strong rivalry. It actually already happened this year. Not with Wimbledon. What's your take?
 
It will likely be awful. All the other slams next year will be competitive. But this one is already done and dusted. The next gen can play on hard court but none can play on grass. Novak won last year playing nowhere near his best. He will win easily in 2022.

It's entertaining, usually in 2-off 128 singles competition you can generally find some interesting matches. But it's not the pinnacle of tennis quality, hasn't been in a long time. It more interesting in that it puts plays well out of there comfit zone than quality of play.
However, it's still entertaining and the only reason may say otherwise is because they only watch Big 4 men's and Williams sisters matches. Most people enjoy the entertainment value with higher level of ignorance than the past. People in mass will watch big events regardless of quality over quality events of lesser value. Olympics prove people will watch anything.

AO without Novak will be a farce.

Probably ends up with 6 of 8 Quarterfinalists being very so so or upstarts like 2017 USO.

I can absolutely see Medvedev & Zverev both upset early.

better than AO

Wimby better again than AO next year. Doesn't matter as much who wins but how good the matches are and how well they are organized
What's your take?
Me think Aussies are about to disorganize and politicize their "Open" again and mistreat and underpay the competitors one more time.

Wimbledon always has the weakest fields, because Thiem, Zverev, Medvedev, Tsitsipas are not contenders at Wimbledon..... and they are the best players outside of the big3.

It’s not that it’s bad it’s just predictable. Djokovic obviously has Med/Zed on HC then on Clay can lose to a few especially if Nadal is back. But at Wimbledon there is no challengers.
It’s actually been this way from years. Fed 14 and 15 was his only challenger
