Djokovic: 2008-2012 he has gone 29-2 with a W, QF, QF, W, and W. He beat Tsonga, lost to Roddick in the QF by retiring, lost to Tsonga in the QF not feeling well, beat Murray, and then last year beat Rafa in a 5 set (7-5 in the 5th set)5 hour and 53 minute thriller. He has truly been the one to beat at the AO the past several years. He is looking to become the first male in the Open Era (since 1968) to win 3 consecutive AO titles and tie Agassi and Rogie for the most AO titles in the Open Era with 4 apiece. In his 8 years (2005-2012) Djokovic has never missed a grand slam and has gone 32-5 at the AO (next best over the 8 years after Rogie) and could very well be the one to beat again this year.
Rogie: He has made the SF or better at this event for 9 consecutive years now (W, SF, W, W, SF, F, W, SF, SF). Rogie's 5 losses in order were to Safin, Djokovic, Rafa, Djokovic, and Rafa. That's 4 titles, one runner up, and 4 semi finals. Rogie is the true model of consistency here making the SF or better year after year and I see it continuing in 2013. He's also 247-37 in 284 career grand slam matches, his 247 victories being the most ever for a male tennis player. 53-5 record from 2004-2012.
Murray: He has only really had success the past 3 years at the AO. He has gone 17-3 with a runner up in 2010 and 2011 and a SF in 2012, losing to Rogie and then Djokovic 2 years in a row. Murray has tended to do well here, although he was beaten in 3 sets in the 2010 and 2011 finals, he had a very close SF loss to Djokovic last year.
My $0.02: Djokovic and Rogie have the greatest chances of winning the 2013 AO and behind them is Murray and then the rest (i.e. Ferrer, Berdych, Del Potro, and Tsonga). I'm really hoping Rogie wins career GS #18 and AO #5 for the most AO titles ever for a male in the Open Era, but think Djokovic will win his 4th AO title tying Agassi and Rogie with 4 AO titles and winning his 6th grand slam title overall.
so the top seeds literally, 1, 2, and 3 have the best odds in your opinion? wow this is revolutionary
unecessary thread bro haha
