Rafael Nadal & Roger Federer will remain the favourites for any Grand Slam in 2011. Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will need some luck to win Slams or move up in the rankings, but as always they will continue to have an outside chance.

Darkhorses: Soderling, Berdych, Davydenko, Roddick, Querrey, Tsonga & Del Potro.

*If Del Potro can return to his 2009 form, he will be a major force. Davydenko can hit with anyone but can he win a Slam? Roddick still has a lot of game left, and Querrey & Tsonga have shown the potential to be giant killers. Maybe Marin Cilic arrives or the much heralded Grigor Dmitrov breaks through...

Grand Slam Predictions

Australian Open: Roger Federer
French Open: Rafael Nadal

Wow, you predict a very good year for Federer, I suppose he's been revived given how well he played against Nadal at the London ATP masters!

I watched Federer's matches in Doha last week and he is playing unbelievable tennis (i.e. Davydenko match)! I know Rafa is his biggest threat out there but the guy has looked extremely sharp since the US Open. Obviously their respective Grand Slam draws will have a lot to do with what happens but Roger seems very focused right now.

Take Nadal out of the equation and everythig looks a lot more possible for Fed. Rafa is by far his toughest match-up but I believe Annacone's coaching will make the difference for him in 2011.

Rafa's gonna bust up the competition in 2011!!! Can't nobody test him and Federer ain't got the sack to go the distance with him.. More crying tears in Australia for you "Rajah";)

Vamos *#@%$!

Hope Del Potro gets back to form.
