Australian Open 2009 winner?

Hi guys

With the upcoming season fast approaching, I am interested in your(serious) opinions about who you think will win AO 2009 and why?

Want to know because I am writing an article and want to see what other ppl think...

Appreciate it guys

If you are interested, a friend of mine recently opened a good Australian tennis blog:

Re: Australian Open 2009 winner?

Given recent form...Murray, maybe?

Djokovic would be 2nd favorite followed by Nadal then Federer.

I'd be on the lookout for Simon, Tsonga and Nalbandian as well.

Re: Australian Open 2009 winner?

Well it is a hardcourt slam so Federer is still my favorite, the guy has done extremely well in those the last few years. Then come both Murray and Djokovic I think.

Safin may suprise everyone.

I think Nadal will win it!!

Federer and Djokovic behind him!

Theres gonna be alot of prussure on Murray now with reaching his 1st Grand Slam Final in New York, He wont make the Semis IMO

Tsonga, Nalbandian, Gasquet & might suprise!

I wouldn't. It's getting boring now. We need a few suprises to liven things up. Besides, Roger-Rafa is hardly the dream matchup on a hardcourt.

I'd die to see a final without Nadal, Federer or Djokovic. That would be fun to watch.. something different from what we got in the last Grand Slams...

Re: Australian Open 2009 winner?

Its difficult to say and to be honest is difficult even after the first two weeks of the tour.

My instinct tells me it will be one of top four with the yearly surprise finalist being Simon or Cilic.
