I like Murray's game, but I think he's got more of a chance at the AO or USO. Grass suits him, but I don't think he'll get much further than the semi's at Wimbledon.

I'd say either Djokovic or Gasquet.

I think Gasquet will win Wimbledon one day(the only slam i see him winning actually) but Murray will do it before.

Murray. Probably next year. I'm surprised he hasn't done so already.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Muzza Bandwagon in full force!

Don't hit me though... I hope he'll be able to do it, too.

Oh dear. If MTF polls run true to course, poor Muzza is never going to win it.

A Wimbly Second Round loss doesn't help, no? A Toronto straight set loss to Muzza neither, I gather.

DISCLAIMER: I am NO hater.

8 for Murray and 6 for Djokovic. That's pretty even.

We'll see what happens when our friends from the east are here.

Re: Who will be the next player not named Federer or Nadal to win Wimbledon?

Djkovic or Gasquet. But for this, both have to improve, Nole has to adjust his footwork to the grass and Gasquet has to work on his physical department. Even though Murray played some really good matches recently, to win Wimbledon he would probably have to face Federer or Nadal, and I can't see him beating them in a best-of-5 match.
