    Did not answer either poll, my answer to both being: Who knows?

    In February 2009 Nadal became the first man ever in tennis history to simultaneously hold 3 GS titles on 3 different surfaces (FO 2008, Wmb 2008 and AO 2009). Hardly a widespread prediction across the tennis landscape in February/March 2008.

    Federer replicated that historical feat 5 months later (USO 2008, FO 2009 and Wmb 2009). Idem: hardly a widespread prediction across the tennis landscape in July/August 2008.

    In September 2010, Nadal could (which is an entirely different proposition than “Nadal will”) become the first man ever in tennis history to subsequently win the FO, Wmb and USO titles on 3 different surfaces. Hardly a widespread prediction across the tennis landscape a year ago.

    Come Wimbleton 2011, Federer could (which is an entirely different proposition than “Federer will”) achieve an equivalent historical feat by subsequently winning the AO, FO and Wm titles on 3 different surfaces in the same calendar year. Idem: hardly a widespread prediction across the tennis landscape at this time.

    Hence, IMO: Who knows? That’s part of the fun, no?
