Who's the bigger SF threat to the top 2: Djokovic vs. Fed or Murray vs. Nadal

Clay_Death tard will have you believe Murray doesn't have a chance against 2011 Nadal and that "The Serbian Slayer" will have a repeat of his 2010 US Open upset over Federer.

What do you think?

Murray 40% chance, Djokovic 30% chance

I think Murray would serve as a bigger threat to Nadal, as opposed to Nole for Federer (who seems to be playing immensely these past months).

So, Murray!

Clearly Murray................on paper. But that's about it. You can't really predict, because it depends on so many factors.

I'd say Murray if they both get there, but I reckon Djokovic is more likely to get to the semis by a bigger margin, so Djokovic at this stage.

Murray could get taken out by Soderling and has a tougher overall draw.

This one is tough. It depends on how Fed is playing, if he's mugging out that's not gonna be enough for Djokovic.

Re: Who's the bigger SF threat to the top 2: Djokovic vs. Fed or Murray vs. Nadal

I would say Murray is the bigger threat as Fish and Wawrinka is in the Federer's half of the draw so perhaps less chance for Murray to crash and burn before possible QF with Sodermug. There's less pressure on Murray now he's dropped to no.5 he's regarded as a sleeper. Murray is a tougher matchup for Nadal than the Swede who usually bends over for Uncle Toni's favourite nephew.

Murray has better chance to take out Nadal, but he has less chance to go to the semifinal. If he goes then it will be very tough for Nadal to win.

Re: Who's the bigger SF threat to the top 2: Djokovic vs. Fed or Murray vs. Nadal

Certainly Murray. He is a better match-up against Nadal than Djokovic is against Federer. Their H2Hs say a lot.

But Djokovic was placed in a pretty good quarter. Davydenko might be his toughest threat but Davydenko hates to play Djokovic and his form is still uncertain anyway. Meanwhile, Murray does have Soderling.

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter

Re: Who's the bigger SF threat to the top 2: Djokovic vs. Fed or Murray vs. Nadal

Murray is a bigger threat right now.
However Nadal is better than those times Murray took him out so it's pretty close.
I expect Fed to be in good form but the serve has to be decent.
It depends on how they play on that particular day.


XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXÈ


Federer

Del Potro

Gulbis

Janowicz

Djokovic (assuming he can steel that fragile-vs-Fed mind of his)
