We've already done this for WTA, see http://community.betfair.com/tennis/go/thread/view/94186/30268479/3-future-maiden-slam-winners-wta-comp#flvWelcomeHeader , now let's do this for ATP.
This competition is very easy to enter. All you have to do is pick 3 future maiden slam winners (men's singles). Whenever someone gets all of his/her picks right that person has won. There is also an elimination question on when all of your picks will have done this to make sure we don't end up with a tie if more than one person has picked the same three players.
So simply write your picks in the same format I have done here (order does not matter). Please write full names, or at least first letter of first name, to avoid misunderstandings.

My picks are:
1) Kei Nishikori
2) Milos Raonic
3) Alexander Zverev
Elimination question: June 4th 2021

Deadline for this competition is January 15th 2017 23:59 UKT, which is when Australian Open starts. At this time, there is no prizing associated with the contest other than the good feeling associated with achieving victory over other contestants.

I believe Sir Andrew Murray has won a Slam or two already so feel free to make a new pick.

Sir Andrew has only just been created, it was his alter ego plain old Andy who picked up all the silverware Mischief

But seriously, I've left out the obvious picks and gone a bit more left field

1. Kyle Edmund
2. Nick Kyrgios
3. Lucas Pouille

The big serving Edmund could, one day, have a dream run with his serve blasting his way to a Wimbledon title.

Kyrgios is the pantomime villain who may just find someone who straightens him out whilst the French, despite their general depth of talent, have underachieved in the title department for years.

Remember I did this thred in July 2014 after your original WTA maidan slam winners thread but there was no interest at the time, http://community.betfair.com/tennis/go/thread/view/94186/30298559/3-future-maiden-slam-winners---atp-comp?post_id=540317621#540317621

Back then I went for Dimitrov / Thiem / Vesely

As this seems to be the offical comp, I will keep two of those and drop Vesely, remember Vesely was about 70th+ in the world back then and has barely moved up 20 odd places in 2 and a half years, hardly any real improvement.

I'd say Coric instead

1) Coric
2) Dimitrov
3) Thiem

Kyrgios will never get his act together for two weeks of hard work.

Can see Nishikori making another push though.

most people like me did't bother to read the thread properly, but I see people are posting dates.

Mine is by the end of the French Open 2020.

Yes exactly Devil so maybe you should make a ruling on that?
And maybe a ruling on whether the man with no name gets to enter three days late?
And sorry for sh1tting on your masha thread.
And well done on winning the suicide pool..
Report caramba January 22, 2017 3:08 PM GMT
Picks saying just Zverev will not count as correct picks if Mischa were to win a Slam.
Since I am a stickler for the rules I can't accept the late entry even though ;[p made a sensible offer of this not counting for Aussie Open.
No worries, I welcome all Masha discussion there.
Thanks.
