BBC Predictions: Quite pathetic

Out of five pundits, 2 predicted Murray, 2 picked Federer and only one of them backed Djokovic. I don't know if these guys have been watching the last few slams.

Raonic was a popular pick for outsider.

Some good calls regarding the WTA, but I'm still quite shocked that only one of them picked a player who made it to the finals.

The BBC pundits are all Fed tards and will only pick Murray for patriotic reasons...Why would they not back the top 2 players in the world is nothing if not scandalous.

MTF is no different...

Djokovic and Nadal are always underrated, and Federer is incredibly overrated

Mats Wilander picked Murray and Federer in the semis. Hope he picks Nadal in the final.

Re: BBC Predictions: Quite pathetic

Had the draw been Federer-Djokovic and Murray-Nadal in the semis I suspect we would have seen a Federer-Murray final so I don't think their picks were that silly.

Djokovic was utter shit for two sets in the Murray match, I still don't understand how Andy didn't put him away. I think even an average Federer could have won that match. Nadal was also rubbish for large parts of the Fedal match; he only really hit his stride in the fourth set. Murray probably would have done better than Federer did even if he didn't win.

Even if Djokovic wins on Sunday (and I suspect he will), I really think he's been there for the picking since the quarters onwards. He's well below his level last year in Australia. However, it just shows how good a player he's becoming that he can (potentially) win slams while playing rubbish. What could he do when playing well?

Equally, Nadal's grand slam consistency is becoming Federer-esque; I don't think he's played that well in the last 12 months yet he's still made 4 slam finals in a row.
