If Murray gets Nole in his SF, he's fucked.
But we all know to ignore Trollander by now.

Oh yeah he lost to Mahut in his first match at Queens.
Still, Murray is not the main favourite for USO.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

I did not say he was and I don't think Wilander or Ivanisevic said he was either. He may be their pick to win but does not mean they think he is the favorite. I'm also backing Murray to win but if I was running a bookmakers then Djokovic would have the shortest odds.

Delpo is the higher Fav than murray as he had won one. hahaha

Problem with murray is he always drop unnecessary sets enroute and will definitely drop at least 2 sets against top player which means he is almost 100% lose. He isn't smooth beating the scrubs.

Re: Wilander&Ivanisevic: "Murray is the main favourite for US Open"

Latest odds:

1. Djokovic- 2.74
2. Federer- 3.7
3. Murray- 4.4
4. Del Potro- 14
5. Tsonga- 46
6. Ferrer- 70
7. Raonic- 85
8. Isner- 90

Everyone else is well over 100 to 1.

The market must be a bit afraid of Federer's recovery from Super Saturday to Sunday, or else he'd be the fave or at least closer to Nole, who he just bageled a few days ago.

Doesn't matter. Andy has been purely focussing on the slams + Olympics this year so he is not going all out any other events, 250 or 1000.

He is not the only top player who does this though. Off the top of my head, at Wimbledon Federer dropped sets to Benny and Malisse and djokovic lost one to Stepanek.

Murray cannot be the favorite, although he is at every GS. Fed has 5 USO's and Djok has the last three HC GS. Guess this will motivate Fed and Djok after hearing this. LOL

WIlander is one of the Fedtards there is.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

yeah difference is Fed and Djok drop by not playing their best. Murray drop sets playing his best, by the time the final comes his percentage all used up. Look at the s-final, tsonga took him out. Nobody can play high percentage every game. Murray need to reserve his high percentage game in the final as he is inferior player, hitting big and painting lines. Unable to do so due to opponents in front forcing him. Conclude he isnt smooth enough beating scrubs, still many efforts.

Much will be depending on which side of the draw he ends up. Until the draw comes out, speculation is rather silly.

Murray is most definitely A favourite, but I can see at least three others too.

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
