Any other is a bit lame tbh but that's why you only get one point for it.

Voting closes before first match at Wimbledon June 29th.

I might change my 1 "any other" before then.

For those of you who picked Raonic:

Milos Raonic will never win a grand slam!!! His game gets dismantled every time he comes up against anyone half decent. He can't rally for more than 2 shots.

I think Any Other means any other must be anyone outside of the usual favourite 4 for a slam in Murray/Federer/Nole/Rafa?

Yer it is but I was going to give Djokovic 5, but ended giving him 6 basically because I couldn't think of anyone else to give one (lots of names, but really it's hard to narrow it down to who you think will win one).

If you're going to make it a competition, given any other points is a bit lame, because it's too easy to just put something like Djokovic 4, any other 6, and be virtually guaranteed getting a load of points. But I don't really care about the competition aspect and more interested to see how right/wrong perception was in 2 and a half years time.

Laugh given how likely it is that the next 10 slams will be won mostly by Novak / Murray / Nadal / Federer, it would be pointless for anyone to state any other for 10 as they'd clearly be losing out. Nobody has done that anyway. Though I will change my any other before Wimbledon probably to Dimitrov or Delpo - assuming he's not going to retire.

Think this is taken as red bb66.

2 of those 4 are unlikely to win another slam, I would even say 0.0% for Nadull

From what i recall i started the original one - after Murray won 2012 USO - and put 'any other' option as it it was thought certain 'other' would be 0 anyway in those days.

Seemingly the Any Others have been put back in their box by Fed and Rafa this year , and are worthless selections for next one Happy

I don't think it was a surprise to anyone following the thread - if anyone other than me was Blush - as i had already won the competition .

Final table would just have been of interest in establishing the mug podium of people who were furthest out with their thoughts on how it would pan out 2012-2015
