Ivan Lendl predicts Nadal will win the AO

http://www.atpchampionstour.com/news138.html

The champs say Nadal would win the AO.

Rafa slam under construction?
Roger's 17th on the way?
Murray losing virginity?
Nolevic taking his crown back?

What do YOU think.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

Re: AO11 Wilander/Edberg/Mcenroe/Noah coincide in something: NADAL!

Personally I think Nadal has one of the better chances in history to win "Da rafa slamo".
But I personally think Roger's isn't over yet, and he wants to reclaim his crown. After AO he doesn't defend so much points.
So I think Roger's gonna do ANTHING to win the AO and break another record.

But Rafito is Rafito and if he's number 1, he'll be probably the favorite.

There's no such thing as The Rafa Slam :retard:

And also, I doubt Murray is a virgin. He's had the same girlfriend for a while now. So, no, Murray isn't a virgin.

You're welcome.

Re: AO11 Wilander/Edberg/Mcenroe/Noah coincide in something: NADAL!

Rafa has to be the favorite -- have to give the unquestioned No. 1 that honor. But I take Fed as having nearly as good a shot at it. Recent form, motivation, rising to the challenge -- Fed has those in his favor, even if he is now Olderer...

And you know Soderling is hungry to get back in a GS final and win one, as well as Nole. Maybe Murray sneaks in somehow.

Re: AO11 Wilander/Edberg/Mcenroe/Noah coincide in something: NADAL!

Edberg, Wilander and McEnroe, and Becker were all nodding their heads in Federer's favour before the 2008 Wimbledon final.

Experts never get it right.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Re: AO11 Wilander/Edberg/Mcenroe/Noah coincide in something: NADAL!

If Federer wins AO, most of those clowns and gloryhunters will pick him out as the main favorite at RG and Wimbledon. You can book it.
Additionally, right after the final of AO they will say that they were pretty confident about Roger's chances to win this title, of course it will contain some flattering comments about Fed and his GOAT legacy.

RAFAEL NADAL PARERA

2007|David Nalbandian strikes lucky to win against Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-0

Re: AO11 Wilander/Edberg/Mcenroe/Noah coincide in something: NADAL!

Making predictions for Australia is always tricky.Those experts picked Federer two years ago and Nadal won,last year they went with Murray and Federer won.
U never know in what shape every player comes here.What happened previous season is history and everything starts from 0.Because Nadal won 3 slams last year it`s no guarantee he will win the first of the year.
It`s easier to make predictions in the middle of the season where u have indication how everyone plays.

Ironically it seems that the 'experts' seem to have done well recently in picking the losing finalist!
