You have a picture of him, that's enough of a reason. Do you remember that Nole has straight setted fed the last 2 times they played there? I bet you don't remember that or do you think that just because Nadal is not here that he has a chance?
I remember yes. And your point is?!
Ah right Roger will lose if he meets Djokovic because he lost the last 2 times they played here, once in 2008 (certainly very valid data for the 2013 AO) and in 2011 when djokovic had one of the best season ever.
It's not that I think, he has a chance. Or do you think the 3rd favourite doesn't have a chance?
He has a good chance of winning the title, he only has 2 players above him in terms of favouritism.
Since you like to teak about past results, Roger has reached the semis in the past 9 years in the AO. Now assuming the seeds hold we would have a murray-Federer semi-final, do you remeber the 2010 AO final? Once in a final anything can happen.
In a way I like that people are so quick to dismiss Roger (has been happening since 2009) because he seems to really enjoy proving the doubters wrong. I hope he does yet again.
