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.
