FFS Taejin. I'm just saying that it isn't that strange should Roger win the AO. As I said I think it's more about the media trying to promote tennis through the younger stars and that Federer and nadal are being dismissed, the first is 31 years old and the second is away from the courts for more than half a year.
I'm not saying getting more hype. I'm just saying no one mentioned it. No expert I've seen has picked Roger to win the AO and I agree. I wouldn't put my money on Roger but to say he doesn't have a chance is ridiculous. It's not sink or swim.
Of course, everybody has chance of winning, I don't remember anyone saying there's no chance for Fed. However, barring some Rosol-like surprises and/or injuries, most likely Fed will have to beat Murray and Nole back to back on the slow hard court. Not impossible, but it's going to be more difficult here than at any other slam.
