4th most likely to win RG?

I know it´s an odd question but I wonder, after the big 3

My top 5 are
1 Almagro (He could well lose to Tipsy, but he´s the one I can truly see catching fire and winning)
2 Ferrer (Needs things to fall into place, but has decent shot at final if Almagro beats Nadal, which is not unthinkable)
3 Berdych (Can beat anyone on his day, just a bit difficult to see him stringing it together)
TIE 4 Murray (Unlikely on clay, but hey, the guy can play and Nadal struggles with him at times)
TIE 4 Gasquet (Really really impressive today, but how does he beat Ferrer?)

Hard to see injured del Potro doing it. Wouldn´t absolutely rule out Tipsy, but not his srurface. Raonic is not beating Ferrer, Federer, or Djokovic, and he´d likely need to do at least one. Monaco seems about to lose, but everyone else would have to play really bad

Who do you think?



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Nadal. He's also the 1st, 2nd and 3rd most likely to win.

On Murray

Re: 4th most likely to win RG?

Almugro is 0-7 versus Nadal, 0-5 versus Federer, and 0-3 versus Nole and you think he's the 4th likeliest to win RG?

He's 1.5th to win the thing. All depends on Serbian Slayer and whether Rogie allows him to do Rafigoato once again.

He´a choked to Nadal plenty, though I am actually regretting not putting Ferrer at 1 a bit. IMO, my top 3 are all really close. He still would need a fair bit of luck of course, probably not running into Ferrer, but I think he can beat Federer and Djokovic on clay

7.Murray ("hai can i reach a clay final pls?")
8.Gasquet (how far is it possible to play behind the baseline and win vs top players, let's test)

Those h2h match-ups are pretty heavily skewed by Almagro being a one-surface player,unlike the 4 best clay players. He has played Ferrer and Nadal close many times on clay. I would have put Ferrer at no. 1 if not for his RG record, and Berdych if he hadn´t somehow been taken to 5 by Anderson on clay.

PHM. Failing that, Berdych.

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Gojowczyk / Brown / Nole / Mahut / Sijsling / Dolgo / Cuevas / Fed / Stan / Baker / Alund / Kei / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Steps / Stakh / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan / Pioline

Re: 4th most likely to win RG?

Almagro is the most mentally weak player on the ATP tour. He has 0 belief in himself when he faces higher ranked players, it's like he is content of being a second tier player and has no ambition of being anything more than that.

If he faces Nadal again, expect a repeat of their 2010 match. Almagro will make each set tight, will get into winning positions in every set but will lose in straights. He does have great strokes/game, but he's mentally incapable of beating any top player. He just doesn't believe he can beat them and when that happens you've already lost.
