Federer is back in action tomorrow. It feels like a long time since he last played (even though it's only been a month or so). Tomorrow's line up looks pretty good
Yeah, it seems like a long time for me as well. Can't wait to see him play.
My expectations for Del Po is to win another slam sometime in the future. I think he can easily achieve this because Fedal don't have many years left in them. Del Po could easily knick another slam or 2 in the future. When i first saw Jo, i thought he could be a slam winner, but in the era of Fedal and Djokovic, i'm not surprised that he hasn't. Jo has fulfilled my minimum expectations of him by becoming a solid top 10 player and winning a few titles. Nishikori is still young, and the minimum expectation for me is a solid and consistent top 10 player. Maybe he could challenge for Grand Slams in the future because there are not many young players to take over once the big four fall.
Murray and Djokovic still have few years left to play, they aren't old so I wouldn't say Del Potro will easily achieve that. If he plays like he did in 2009 then maybe. I think he will win more slams in the future but it is definitely not going to be easy. I think if Tsonga was more consistent, I think he would have won a slam, when he is on top form he can do anything. When I've seen him destroy Nadal in the Aussie Open in 2008, I thought that he will definitely win a slam soon, hell I even though he could beat Djokovic in the final. But now I don't think he will win a slam now. I haven't see much of Nishikori so I don't know how good he is but he has defeated Djokovic last year and Ferrer this year so maybe he can be a great player soon.
