Re: Throwing our support solely behind Rafito in his quest for Aussie glory! Play MIT
Fair draw for Rafa until the semis. He has some pretty tricky opponents like Monfils or Simon, Hewitt or Gasquet but if he is in a top form we shouldn't worry. I do think Rafa's loss to Monfils in Doha was a fluke. So I am going to make my prediction for MIT. It is not easy since Murray is in his half as almost always in GS. A little offtopic now:
Murray's allocation at GS draws since 2007:
AO 2007 - Rafa's 1/8
FO 2007 - Do not play
WB 2007 - Do not play
US 2007 - Fed's 1/2
AO 2008 - Rafa's 1/2
FO 2008 - Rafa's 1/4
WB 2008 - Rafa's 1/4
US 2008 - Rafa's 1/2
AO 2009 - Rafa's 1/2
So my MIT prediction is going to be either Finalist or Winner. And I will choose Finalist. The Semi will take too much out of him. He always struggles after beating Murray the next match.
