New Delhi: After an eventful last year, one can expect men’s tennis in 2015 to be more entertaining and thrilling. Last season was quite exciting, where on one hand, we found two new Grand Slam champions in Stanislas Wawrinka (Australian Open) and Marin Cilic (US Open), on the other, we witnessed big names like Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray struggling with fitness and form. If, ageing legend of the game, Roger Federer showed signs of resurgence, then, the world number one Novak Djokovic, somehow, couldn’t manage to justify his world number one tag.
Although, the Serb and the Spaniard managed to run away with Wimbledon and French Open titles, respectively, 2014 was majorly the year of young and emerging starts, who have had their moments. From Wawrinka to Cilic to Kei Nishikori to Grigor Dimitrov to Milos Raonic all showcased their talent and potential on the big stage.
This season is crucial for the Big Four. Federer is in pursuit of his 18th Major, Novak is hungry for more titles, Rafa is back in action and raring to go, whereas, Murray would be eager to have another Slam under his belt.
If the big guns are looking hungry than ever to win the Majors this year, then youngsters too, would be hoping to put their best foot forward in all four Majors of the year.
With the first Grand Slam of the year - Australian Open - is set to kick-start from January 19, it would be interesting to see, who will win the first major battle of the year. Would it be someone from the Big Four or a youngster will take everyone with surprise, or may be Wawrinka will successfully defend his title. It’s really difficult to predict. But one thing is sure that it’s going to be an action packed year in men’s tennis.
We at Zeenews.com invite you to share your thoughts on whether this season is going to be the most challenging one for the Big Four.
