I want a Nadal, Djokovic RG final for starters.
Wimbledon, I don't see anything changing. Djokovic will win that even playing poorly, and that's the disappointing thing about grass season. No one can do anything other than Fed and Djoker IMO.
USO swing becomes interesting, as that's when a lot of the younger guys CAN do damage.
Nadal probably doesn't win his 5th there, so a Zverev / Medvedev / Thiem, could possibly be the one.
Djokovic seems to be an unkown at the USO , although im sure his motivation to catch Rafa on USO titles and slams will be high.

I, for one, am looking forward to it all.

A young guy to finally have a breakthrough at Wimbledon or the USO. But, not winning without facing Federer, Nadal, or Djokovic in the final.
 
Anyone who actually believes that Novak will win all 4 at the age of 32/33 simply doesn't follow pro tennis, or doesn't understand it. Period.

Even if this were the weakest era in the entire history of the cosmos, Novak would not have a chance to win all 4 in a row - AGAIN. He barely beat Thiem at AO, just to point that out. He had a lull last year during HC season. He almost lost Wimby finale. And yet somehow he is a favourite to win all 4 just because he won AO?

He's won AO 7 times BEFORE and how many times did he follow that up with the FO? Once. With CYGS? Zero times.
simmer down there thumper, I dont believe anyone will but atm he's still the only player with any kind of shot at it (and yes its ridiculously low... ie so low that ridicule isnt unfounded).

one of these kids has to break through... thats far more likely

RG - Thiem (if not him then Djokovic)
W - Novak
Olympics - Novak Gold
USO - Nishikori at least reaches the final
Delpo, Janowicz, Raonic, Murray and Klizan are fit for rest of the 2020
Thiem reaches 2 more GS finals and win one of them.
Schwartzman scores a Big 3 win.
 
If you want to project your own anger on me, just go for it, kid. I'm so used to it here...
Your words dont resemble anything and Im old enough to appreciate being called a kid. No need to get used to anything, unless you like it but that's not my place.

Mostly Im very curious which inevitable youngling finally breaks through.

You still "simmering"...? Ooookay...

Now tell us what you wish for in 2020 in terms of slams, coz that's why we're here.

Interesting Has Tsisipas shown much promise on grass.? I mean he should but his service game does need more work. At his height he should be more intimidating on serve than he is..

Tsitsipas doesn't have results on grass, but he's only played 2 seasons of it. I'd be mighty surprised if he isn't successful on it, because his game is best suited to grass out of all the NextGenners.

true he is a placement server and he does have a decent slice backhand... if he improves those two things (serve and slice BH he should have a future there)

I'm hoping for and expecting a Nadal victory at the French. There will then be an extra level of interest at the following majors, with Nadal and Federer tied at twenty apiece. If Nadal somehow fails to win the French this year, I'd like to see Djokovic take it, so that it becomes an even closer race. I don't see Federer winning any more majors, based on his unimpressive performances (since Australian 18) in all but last year's Wimbledon, and he'll be another year older since then. If someone other than the top three is to win, it's probably Thiem's time. He's too good to not have at least one major title to his name.

Nadal should win Wimbledon, and Thiem RG, Fed should retire.

but probably it will be like this:

Novak C-GS
 
Think he may well just do that. Obviously huge favourite at French and US and he has got close at Wimbledon past two years so just got a feeling he may pull that out as well.

His recent interview was telling. He sounds very content with life now. Usually when he is effusive in his praise of his biggest rivals it means he is very confident.
Haha, mine is purely wishful thinking. my friend. I like Rafa, and his capabilities, but winning 3 is highly improbable at this point.

Possible, but highly improbable.
The Next Gen are on his heels, and obviously, Djokovic and Feddy are still there

I'm Nadal fan. So, of course, I expect Nadal to win RG 2020.

I hope Nadal to win Wimbledon, too. Djokovic became vulnable if you see his performance at Wim 2019 and AU 2020 Final meanwhile Federer will be 39 on Aug. I think Federer cannot play well as he played at Wim 2019. So, Nadal has his chance in this season.

And I expect Medvedev to win US 2020.

I think all Nadal fans since last September are only interested in two events this year. Fo and uso.

Win both and he is on 21 plus would be joint leader of Us open wins. If he did that he can retire as far as im concerned and enjoy next part of his life.

AO was a great event for Rafa as he looked so competitive on his worse surface (greenset) and if he wins FO he should skip Wimbledon.

Only events Rafa should play this year are Indian Wells, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, rome, roland garros, toronto And Us Open.
This :D I would love for him to beat Imhotep in the final too :p

I would like to see a CYGS in my lifetime. Do it, Nole. But if not, then I’d like to see Murray or Nishikori or even Tsonga win a major because none of them are getting any younger. If Nadal is in a major semi that would get him to 20 if he won the whole thing, I’d like to see Federer as his opponent in that semi to try to stop him.

On the women’s side, I’d like to see Andreescu stay healthy and have strong rivalries with Barty and Osaka that last for years as they become the next Big 3. I’d also like to see Anisimova recover from her father’s death and break into the top 5.
 
Big 3 have won the last 13 Majors, will that streak continue? And do you want it to continue, or would you rather see the changing of the guard?

Congrats to Djoker on winning the Australian Open by the way...
We all just want this "mad chaos " to be over, so we can all watch our favorite players slug it out.

Don't really care about GOAT **** no more. Just play, play, play

Kind of unfair to jump into this old post and quote someone like that.
They were discussing the season when it was still going.
