Well I'd like to see Novak with the trophy again but I don't think so that he will do it...His poor performance in Brisbane showed that his game with a new racquet is not on the highest level unfortunatelySo I voted for Murray because actually he has the best form but every man from Top 4 has big chances..

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ANA IVANOVIC
NOLE DJOKOVIC RICHARD GASQUET

Dominika Cibulkova Agnes Szavay Caroline Wozniacki

Re: Australian Open 2009 - January 19-February 1, 2009 - Who will win?

one of the big four, probably fed and so I will vote for him

I would love for muzza to begin his haul building but that will depend on other factors such as the draw etc.

With the tightness between the four, it could come down to easiest draw

Re: Australian Open 2009 - January 19-February 1, 2009 - Who will win?

Nadal sucks on hard.
Federer is done.
Djokovic is not in his best form
Murray is favourite.
Dont expect Tsonga to reach aus open final again.
Davydenko is skipping aus open, isn`t he???
Roddick will do well here, but lose to anyone of top4, unless Fed/Rafa/Djok/Murray lose before quaterfinals.
Monfils has got chances to reach 1/4 or even 1/2, but not better.
Cilic will lose before 1/4.
Nalbandian - impossible to predict...
Blake - lose in R4 probably
Del Potro - chances of beating anyone, if he is in form.
Simon - not better than 1/4
As from others, pay attention to Verdasco, Soderling, Fish, Gasquet, Tursunov, Stepanek, Mathieu, Youzhny, Gulbis, Ginepri, Nishikori, Hewitt, Haas, Baghdatis...

Mardy Fish!

Brian Baker - Steve Johnson - Lleyton Hewitt - Carlos Berlocq - Tommy Haas - Ivo Karlovic - Richard Gasquet - Kevin Anderson - David Ferrer - Michael Russell - Fabio Fognini - Dustin Brown - Somdev Devvarman

A first round loss for Muzza won't happen.

I voted for him, even though I'd like to see Fed or a dark horse winning.

No mention of Safin on this thread. He played some amazing shots against Hrabaty.
No Poll mention either. Strange. Bodes well for his future.

I do think Murray will win but as these polls can be the ultimate jinx i won't vote.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013
