Will Murray destroy Nadal's mini slam dream?

I think he's got a pretty good shot but still there's a long way to go for both men.

Rafa has to beat Cilic and Murray beat Melzer and then win in ther QF matches of course. I think they will. In the eventual Rafa-Murray match-up, i give them 50-50 odds. If they go to a fifth set Nadull has the edge, though.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.

Well, everybody should vote 'don't know',right? Unless some of you have a crystal ball at home. But I'm beginning to feel a bit worried that he might.

Re: Will Murray destroy Nadal's mini slam dream?

Murray will need to get through most likely Soderling which is a big task. I think both Murray and Soderling have a shot (not sure how big of one) to beat Nadal. I wonder if Nadal has a preference who he would rather play. Soderling is playing some nasty tennis right now too.

Rod Laver said it would be a "mini" slam, so it's a mini slam. Who are you to doubt Rod Laver?

Murray can beat Nadal if they meet, if it goes 5 then Nadal has even less chance.
Remember last year, not much has changed.

Federer

Del Potro

Gulbis

I just can't see Murray beating him right now.

Murray looks and sounds like a boat adrift.

I think Murray is playing well right now. He has a shot at it. Nadal still the favorite.

Re: Will Murray destroy Nadal's mini slam dream?

I think he will, Murray is very hard for Rafa on hard court, alos if Nadal is still not recovered from the virus I dont think he stands a chance.

Re: Will Murray destroy Nadal's mini slam dream?

Murray can yes. my only concern is that he faces SodaPop in the QF and they have a long 5-setter and the winner comes out flat in the Semi's

Re: Will Murray destroy Nadal's mini slam dream?

I don't think Murray will, but I also don't think Rafa will win this four Grand Slam titles in a row. There should have been an option "someone else will do the job"
