What do you think about it?
I have a feeling AO will be decided between Nole and Roger. Of top 3, Murray has the most difficult QF, assuming it'll be against DelPo. Nole and Roger have easier SFs, even if Berdy and Tsonga can be just as dangerous as DelPo but they aren't as consistent.

Then in semis, I'd be very surprised if Nole lost. So, I'm pretty sure he'll make the final. In the other half, Roger is my favourite for final. Not only he has an easier QF but also I think he's the favourite against Murray. WTF wasn't particularly fast, yet Roger was able to beat Murray there.

In the final, I think only Roger can beat Nole. I just think Nole is a better player than Murray, and Bo5 highlights that. On the other hand, Roger maybe can't anymore play the best tennis of his career, but even if he plays his best tennis of last two years, he is almost likely to beat Nole. Last year, Roger's start to WTF final was just so amazing, and had his level not dropped at the end of both sets, he would've won.

Of course, another thing is if Roger can play his bast tennis of last two years. I'd say Roger-Nole match would be 60:40 for Nole. And because of the easier draw, I think Nole is the favourite.
