Re: Australian Open 2010: Predictions by six tennis legends

Djokovic is useless against top players.

Tennis "experts," even former pros apparently, always forget about Davydenko. They also might have been asked this question prior to Doha. And since Nikolay is so easily forgettable, they probably all forgot WTF happened or wrote it off as a one-time fluke.

Djokovic.
\ \ \ \
Coric.
/ / / / /
Youzhny.
\ \ \ \
Del Potro.
/ / / /
Paire.
\ \ \ \
Ferrero.

Re: Australian Open 2010: Predictions by six tennis legends

Nobody cares about Roddick and Davydenko. Both of them have a chance though.

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

Ivanisevic mentioned Davydenko as a possibility, although he ultimately predicted someone else.

I can't believe that Monfils gets a mention.

Re: Australian Open 2010: Predictions by six tennis legends

Of course the obvious answer is Roddick. Some legends.

The typical pandering to the British press...it's almost as if the BBC/LTA/whatever was holding up a board behind the camera: "Say Murray!"

Legend only means he can compete on the champions tour and he fulfills this definition:

To be eligible to compete on the ATP Champions Tour, players must have been either a World No. 1 during their competitive playing careers, a Grand Slam singles finalist, or a singles player in a victorious Davis Cup team; and they should have retired from the ATP circuit.

Therefore, Mark is a legend.

Re: Australian Open 2010: Predictions by six tennis legends

i don't think federer. but he is a class act and can perform very well and turn his form around suddenly.

nadal in very good form. hitting the ball nicely, but letdown against davy is a concern.

davy is in the best form of his life now. hitting the ball like a world no.1, has to be respected. 9 match win streak

del po/djoko don't know yet, serving form for del potro will be interesting, he will be tough to break....djoko is great HC player

murray is dominating at times but inconsistent, lost to robredo.

I wouldn't give any of these guys my cash to take down to the bookies. My crystal ball is as good as theirs.

the older and obviously out of touch guys are sticking with Rogi unsurprisingly.
