Who will be the next player not named Federer or Nadal to win Wimbledon?
Probably Murray, the rest except for Roddick (who won't get any better) can't move on grass.
Personally, I'd like to see Roddick win Wimbledon.
I would also like to see Roddick pull a Goran Ivanisevic....
Roddick can do it, if he'll get over this year's loss after almost being 2 sets up, he can do it. His serve is amazing, his movement really improved, so has his BH and approach shots. If somehow both Nadal and Federer lose in early round, Wimbly is Roddick's for the taking. Murray is my next choice.
Tsonga failed again to prove he will do anything on grass.
Del Potro not likely.
Cilic sadly is too busy choking.
Djokovic it would be nice but I think since that one semifinal run it has been exposed that he is not as good on grass as we all thought.
Picking Roddick seems eh.
Murray has way too much pressure.
Bets are on Murray, but wouldn't be surprised if Roddick or Cilic did it.
murray or del potro.
Roddick all the way!!!!
Roddick or Murray, the rest can forget about Wimbledon for at least another 2-3 years
My gut feeling says it will be Roddick....
I'd like to see Hewitt somehow pull a miracle win over Roddick in the 2010 finals.
Chance of that happening is slim to none, but it would be good.
Cilic's game suits grass very well. He'll be a force there once he matures in the coming years.
Murray has the best chance to win other than Federer or Nadal.
Read the question again.
Exactly. Nole is underrated on grass. He has reached two grasscourt finals in a row: Queen's and Halle.
Murray. Roddick needed to play one of the best matches of his career to beat Murray in 4 tight sets last year, and I think last year was Roddick's best opportunity and as close as he'll ever get to winning a slam. Djokovic isn't good enough on grass, JMDP hasn't shown himself on grass yet either. It will be Murray, wouldn't be surprised if it happens next year.
Murray would be knighted if that happened.
He probably would, the Brits are desperate too see some results!
Imo there is a bigger chance that England wins the World Cup than Murray winning Wimbledon...
Well, Capello is a great coach so you never know.... Roma won a scudetto with him so after that anything is possible....
He is, that wasnt meant as an insult, i was being serious.
I would love to see Roddick win Wimbledon someday, hes come so close. I think Murray or Del Potro has a chance of winning Wimbledon next year, but between these players I would choose Del Potro because he won the US Open.
If Ana Ivanovic is in the draw, he doesn't have a prayer.
Del Potro is a clown in grass
Murray will win before any of these guys. I don't think Roddick will get to the Final again if both Nadal and Federer are in the draw. They are too good for him.
Murray, if he keeps improving, has the game to eventually beat both Nadal and Federer on grass.
Voted other, because I can't see anyone beating Fed / Nadal there in the options listed.
I'm a strong believer that huge serves work on grass. Also, Americans have a fairly easy transition to grass and I think Roddick showed he is more than capable of winning Wimbledon in his epic match against Roger. Look for Andy "The Rocket" Roddick to win 2010 Wimbledon
Roddick played amazing in 2009. He was so close. I think he'll have his chance again.
There's only one Rocket, sir. And that's the great Rod Laver.
Either Roddick or Murray.
I still think it's going to be Roddick. He reminds of Fed at the FO...
Or Nadal at the US Open, except for the lost finals.
Sorry, couldn't ressist .
Roddick at Wimbledon = Fed at the FO
Someone will take out Fed at Wimbledon eventually and Roddick will win... Like Ivanisevic in 2001 when Fed took out Sampras....
Not sure if you have noticed, but Roddick ain't getting any younger either.
Aren't you selling Nadal short by writing this?
^No because the current Wimbledon champ is Fed.
Ivanisevic won Wimbledon at 30.
It doesn't make it any easier for Roddick to beat Nadal on grass.
Right now Fed is the man to beat at Wimbledon. He has won it SIX times.
I'm not disputing that, but Roddick needs more than just Federer out of the draw to win Wimbledon.
If Djokovic can somehow go back to playing tennis like at the 2008 AO, then he's got a shot at Wimbledon. Del Potro is my second choice. Murray a distant third.
Gonna go with Andy.
Hewitt will win wimbledon if he gets a good draw.he will end his losing run againist federer in the final.
I pick Andy Murray, followed closely by Andy Roddick. The others are bigger question marks in my opinion.
how did delpotro get 5 votes? So far we have seen nothing from the guy that suggests that he'll ever win wimbledon.
He's really sucked on grass. Guess the 7 votes just tells us there are 7 really big Del Potro fans on this board.
I agree. Assuming Roddick can get past last years tough loss and realize just how close he came and figure out that little something extra I think he still has a shot or 2 at Wimbledon left in him. Murray, assuming he can channel the home town crowd into something of a positive driving force, and with a little luck (not having to play Fed/Nadal/Roddick all in a row or having to play 2 of them back to back, or hoping he ends up opposite the majority of those 3 and they get tired fighting each other), he has a shot. The main thing will be Murray channeling the crowd and letting it energize him, if he can do that...I think he has a shot.
Del Potro will smack his way into winning wimbledon. Just you watch
