Federer is still the favorite to me in a best of 5 vs Murray. Djokovic has an edge over both in Australia, but it's not big. Anything can happen between those 3...

That THUG Tomug is ALSO responsible for the Media focusing on Round 3 instead
of Roger winning his 5th AO Title and 18th Overall Slam. Fed is going to POUND
that Thug HARD for opening his big Mouth craving some more attention. LMFAO !
Olderer not being in spotlight 24 hours a day makes his Fedtards post things like this. God forbid if someone breaks his GS record one day, mass suicides might happend.

Re: Federer's potential 5th AO title

I'm actually kind of the opinion that this is Federer's least favourite surface. He's only won the AO once on Plexicushion don't forget.

Would rate Federer a much better chance of winning if this tournament was taking place at Roland Garros. Think he stands a better chance against Djokovic on clay, and it sort of removes Murray as a factor.

Re: Federer's potential 5th AO title

Noserer is not winning AO. People need to wake up and realize that this old man is only riding through matches on reputation and serve. When he meets a ballbasher on fire, he will lose like last year in USO. I would rate his chances low against Clownga - unless the latter chokes and knowing Clownga that is enormous possibility.

Well they've only met three times, and all in finals. I guess you would expect a multiple major winner to feel more comfortable than someone still striving for his first. Plus the fact Federer is the (far) better player overall.

Of course, that has changed now - Murray has finally got that first major, spurred on by his Olympic victory. Federer is older, and declining as Murray has improved. I suspect if they meet in a major now, it's going to be A LOT closer than any of their three previous matches.

Ridiculous. The WI final was the only match which was competitive because for the first Murray wasn't nervous as hell in a big match against Federer...

Maybe you should rewatch the other finals. Federer was placing no foot wrong. Was Murray playing at his best? No. Did Murray choke the match? No. Unless you have some magical definition of "choking" then this conversation is done. Fact is, Murray was outplayed regardless of if he came out flat in each match, there was no choking involved, even when Murray had a break up in the second set of the USO final and when he had a couple set points in the third set of the AO final.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

I have watches all those matches, thank you.
When a player reaches a Slam final and is good form and comes out flat and nervous in the final against a more accomplished opponent, it also some kind of choking but probably you don't know that.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Dimitrov - Chardy - Berdych

Why are you debating with him?

The very reason he took Murray out of his sig was cos he couldn't beat Fed in a GS final but he had the nerve to beat Djokovic (a bigger fave) in one instead.

Oh, and apparently for Federer, he has never played matches where he doesn't let his opponent in the match. But of course Rafa and Novak can play matches where they can just dominate and not let the opponent get in the match. Yes, for you, the world is flat when it comes to Federer, typical.

Of course you would, anytime to discredit Federer more, you'll jump the gun.

Muzza choked in the 2nd set of the Wimbledon final and the third set of the AO final, but Fed bossed him for all 3 sets in NY, first two sets in Australia and the last two sets under the roof at SW19.

It clearly winds you up Andy can beat your faves in slams, but not yet beaten Federer (which is why he is now out of your sig)

I don't have Fed or Murray in my sig, I'm not a tard, so I think I can say that I'm much more unbiased than you on this topic...

Maybe you haven't noticed but Murray trashed Fed in a big final and denied Fed his long wanted Olympic Gold Medal. I'm more than proud of Andy for that Plus he has a positive H2H with Fed. The reasons why I took him out of my sig are different but you wouldn't understand them anyway.
