Talking Is it safe to say Verdasco is this year's AO surprise finalist?

Beating the undisputed favourite he bangs his way straight to the top. Murray bandwagon died, long live the Verdasco bandwagon.

No chance..first he needs to quit being a little girl when it comes to the first serve. never seen a player that rather spin the first than hit a 2nd.

It is safe thay Henman-British chokefest will rule the british players forever.

About Murray by a friend:

Murray is a great player. His only problem is that he is british.

Re: Is it safe to say Verdasco is this year's AO surprise finalist?

What if he actually makes it to the final first?

Besides, he is not as much of a surprise as Baghdatis, Gonzalez or Tsonga. Those guys did come from almost nowhere. Verdasco was at least showing signs of greatness.

But yeah, let's wait until he makes the final before you start with this.

Gonzalez didn't come out of nowhere. Earlier Safin or Schuettler weren't tipped as the finalists but they made it. This year the big four were the favourites to the final, anyone of of big four is a surprise finalist.

Baggy - surprise
Gonzo - no surprise considering his form late 2006, I knew he had a shot
Tsonga - highly touted since July 2007

Re: Is it safe to say Verdasco is this year's AO surprise finalist?

Fernando Verdasco definitely have the weapon to challenge Nadal. His weakness from the past have always been too passive. He does not use his forehand nearly enough to do damage to his opponents. It's so obvious he can smash the crap out of the forehands, he just needs to do it more and he can win against anybody.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)
