    It has been noted by some observers that this year represents the year of change. Whether you accept that or not - there has been some changes in the tenis scene.

    Last year the grand slam champions for both men's and women's singles were as follows:

    AO Djokovic Sharapova

    FO Nadal Ivanovic

    Wimbledon Nadal V.Williams

    US Federer S.Williams

    This year the picture is diiferent.

    AO Nadal S.Williams

    FO Federer Kutznetsova

    Wimbledon Federer S.Williams

    US Del Potro Clijsters

    There are new champions from last year and i see this trend continuing.
    It will be interesting to see who picks up all 4 titles next year as the competition is getting stronger.

    Interestingly this year for both men and women's only one number 1 player won a slam. (Federer was ranked 2 for both FO and Wimbledon), namely Nadal.

    In fact in the last 2 years on the mens side only 1 player won a slam while ranked 1, and that is Nadal.
