The top men's tennis players often tip their hands when it comes to best-case scenarios. Consider the coaching carousel that took place just before the beginning of the 2014 season.
Roger Federer called on former world No. 1 Stefan Edberg.
Novak Djokovic pulled Edberg's old nemesis Boris Becker into his team.
Their contemporary, Ivan Lendl, still is in Andy Murray's fold.
It's easy to see just how this plays into the mindsets of the Swiss and Serbian stars. Certainly it says a lot about what they would say constitutes success for them in the year-to-come. For the other top players such as David Ferrer and Juan Martin Del Potro, it is a pretty safe bet that they want what their fans want: the big win.
How about Rafael Nadal? His version of the dream year apparently knows no bounds.
Here's a brief analysis of what one can imagine will make for the best 2014 for each of these top men's tennis players.
