Only one thing I'd say. Nadal would have won in 2010 over Fed and would have lost in 2011. So Fed would have had 7 wins and a final, counter-factually speaking ...

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

Re: Wilander&Ivanisevic: "Murray will win US Open"

Remind me when the last time Wilander said something correct or at lest relevant?

Gasquet is next №1

Novak is ahead of Roger, but Roger is ahead of Andy.

Re: Wilander&Ivanisevic: "Murray will win US Open"

Owing to seeding and draw structure, either Federer or Djokovic will have a draw which means they have to defeat only 1 top 3 player to win the US Open. On paper Murray will have to potentially defeat Federer and Djokovic.

Overall Murray most likely has the toughest route to victory.

Whoever has potentially Murray will see their winning chances probably ruined by "Stupid Saturday" and the stupid people who run the US Open.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

Unfortunately not nearly fast enough. Check out Nole's post Cincy final comments. NY is considerably slower than Cincy which suits his game to a T.

You seem to be assuming Roger will play 5 sets in the semis. What if Roger plays Ferrer or Tipsarevic or aonther player and wins in 3 sets. Do you still believe Roger wouldn't recuperate for the finals?

When you say "It effectively kills off his chances of winning the final..." it seems oyu're saying Roger has no chance of winning which is of course false. Roger is the second favourite and has a good chance of winning.
You should hope Fed does not play someone like Julien Benneteau in the semis because that would definitely be decided on a 5th set tie break effectively killing off his chances in the final. Yes he does have a chance in the final. Anybody who makes it that far has a chance. Their opponent could get injured, or in a fit of madness, injure someone during the match a la Nalbandian and default the match. Don't know if that has ever happened in a GS final match but I suppose it is possible.

Too good

As much as I respect Wilander-player I am bored with him as commentator and predictor. IMO, he is the worst analyst in tennis among all.

let's just say I would express grave concern if wilander called for the sun rising in the east.

Roger is playing better than in 2011, Djokovic is playing worse than in 2011, US Open surface in 2012 faster than in 2011. Last year djokovic wonm in 5 after saving MPs.... Do the math.

Nice trolling.

You should hope Murray doesn't meet someone like Stanislaus Wawrinka before the QFs -- oh wait....
