Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, they cling to the real or the gods or love.

Let the shakeout begin.

Im hoping for many upsets in the following months.

I guess what im hoping for is
a) Djokovic not to win Cincy and US Open. (And preferrably not Exhibiton King Thiem as he's been annoying during the break)
b) Nadal and Djokovic not to win French (im a big Nadal fan, but I'd be ok withit, if it makes way for new talent)
c) Big 3 to never win another Slam :happydevil: (they've ruled the tennis world for far too long)

i think this break was just the thing Next Gen (or even Didnt Quite Happen Gen) needed to break thru

The unexpected happens in that realm though.

The lockdown causes rustiness for all players, cancelling out the fact that Murray went for a very long time with no matches.

He has played 2 battles of the brits and has no first round bye due to low ranking. In the chaos of rustiness, he climbs the ladder to win the US Open.

It's sad that they needed to get old (Nadal, Djokovic, Wawrinka) or really old (Federer) or so injured that they can't move (Murray) for the young players to finally start doing something.

Djokovic will most likely win Cincy and USO. However there’s a chance somebody new will win, but come on. Medvedev is our New Hope, our Luke Skywalker to the Fedalovic Empire.

There is no way that Djokovic will win "Cincinnati" and the Open in such a short time.
At 33, he should prioritize the golden prize.
:D

Like so many believe of Timmy, you think he should tank it so he can grab the US Open?

Tsitsipas looks pretty focused. Didn't see Meddy's match, but did see Tsitsipas play and it was pretty decent.
Can't underestimate how hard it is to beat a serve bot when everyone is rusty. The first serve does not go away with lack of practice, it's like riding a bike. As long as you remember the key parts of the motion.

Not that you are doing that, I mean we should pretty impressed.

so far this thread has been fail

i still hope for a good US Open result!
Hasn’t Djokovic won 22 matches in row and Nadal is holder plus huge favourite for RG. They are nowhere near finished dominating. The most likely result after the AO 21 is Djokovic on 19 slams and Nadal on 20

There never was a Big4.

P.S. Murray has to be one of the most boring multi slam winners of all time.

Fantastic thread title. The Big Three + One aren't remotely on their last legs. Djoker and Nadal will still win 20+ Slams.

Of course, + 1 and Federer are done.

Undisputed Nadal GOAT?
There is no point to continue the French Open

After Nadal retires, every future potential winner would win it under the understanding "congrats, but you're not as good as Rafa on clay"

Therefore, it is best for the mental health of such players that we retire the tournament, no?

RG should be discontinued.
New Philippe Chatrier stadium should be used for rock & pop concerts of Genesis and Supertramp after the pandemic ends with mandatory vaccination.
