It would be brave to pick a winner of Miami right now .

I wonder if Nole is really in a slump,a victim of his success last year or just saving his best for the majors.

But , its surprising and great to see how well Federer is still playing against the younger players at their peak. Can he beat them over a five setter though ?

Federer and anyone in his camp HAS to be pleased and a little surprised with how things have transpired since that unacceptable loss at the USO last year.

Three way battle for no.1 post-Wimbledon:
www.atpworldtour.com/News/Tennis/2012/06...tention-For-No1.aspx

The gist of the article is:

1) If Nole reaches the final, Nole stays no.1
2) If Rafa wins the title and Nole fails to reach the semis, Rafa becomes no.1
3) If Roger wins the title and Nole fails to reach the final, Roger becomes no.1

I think 1) is the most likely of the three, but the no.1 ranking will be up for grabs again at Flushing Meadows, if not before...

I would like that too viva, but I would be happier with a 17th slam than breaking Sampras' record I am hoping that Roger ends up in Nole's half of the draw - that way he can hopefully stop Nole getting to the final

As the Fed fans hoped Rafa would beat Nole, I do hope Nole is in Fed's half.
I actually thing Roger has a better chance of beagting Nole on grass than he does of beating Rafa.
But anyway a Rafa vs Roger final would be nice

Re: A Federerwatch Thread 19 Jun 2012 16:57 #26190

My favourite winners for Wimbledon this year:

1) Roger
2) Rafa
3) Del P
4) Anyone but Nole or Murray
5) Nole
6) Murray

I think that just about sums it up

Only for Nadal fans! We all know what the result would be.

I'd like to see another Federer-Murray final, I enjoyed their AO final a couple of years ago, and the first Brit to win since the year dot / Federer aiming to equal Sampras' 7 Wimbledons would make for a genuinely historic final.

The thought of Rafa/Nole volume 1000 is very dreary, but that's what I'd put my money on.

In fact I think I'd like to see that actually

I would like to like Tsonga but he is just too flaky. The fact that he failed to beat Nole in Paris when he had him by the short and curlies really put the icing on that cake

I bet Rafa and Nole are gagging to see Murray in their half of the draw

Murray in the final? No thank you. There's the small possibility that he might win

I know we're going slightly offtopic here but...

I don't get the dislike of Murray. I do get irritated by his moaning, but when he's playing well I enjoy his shotmaking and find his game pleasant to watch.

Plus as a Brit I really do want to see a British player finally win another major, preferably Wimbledon.

Finally, do people not think, despite disliking him, that he's too good a player not to win a grand slam? That it would be a real shame for him to finish his career without one?

Maybe I'm too much of a softie, but I don't like seeing good players not fulfill their potential.

The problem that many of us have with Murray is that he never shows enough bottle to go out and get the win.He lacks the WANT! Its almost as if he expects it to fall in his lap or to be given to him. Secondly, all his oncourt behaviour and foul mouth doesnt help anyone to endear to him. He is a petulant brat!
