So last year Roddick was more of a favorite over Murray at the 2012 US Open because he has won it, I'm a Roddick fan but i am not delusional.
I disagree. How can I put Murray above 3 guys who have actually won wimbeldon in the last 3 years? What has Murray done on grass in the last 2-3 years (besides olympics) to put him above these guys??? be realistic dude..

clay:
last 2 years: Djokovic has the edge.
last 4-10 years: Fed has the edge.

If they meet at 2013 RG SF it's 51/49 for Fed for me. If the real Fed shows up, he wins. He already owned Djokovic 2.0 there, so it should only be easier.

And Djokovic 1.5 straight setted Fed on last RG...that has no bearing on your odds?

Re: "Murray's AO chances scuppered by No. 3 seeding"

Alex there is something you are missing , Fed already has all records GS,weeks at number one ,
Things in tennis can change quickly. Rafa would break Fed GS record now it is Djokovic . Can i ask who can say that for sure ? No one it is for sure. You can not buy GS you need to earn them.
How do you think how long time Novak needs to win 11 or 12 GS to break Fed record? Let see who knows how to win 17 GS ? This person still playing. I do not know how old you are but i can say at 30 you are much more wiser and more better, As you can see the same number of matches as Novak did. Now Fed can play where and what he wants, I do not know who do you think was 302 weeks as #1 and this man does not know what the pressure is, Novak was #1 last year and who did take this position from him . No one knows anything for sure NO ONE.

Briggs is such a massive idiot. Fact is, Fed had a harder draw than Murray down under.

Fed knew very well what would happen in F at FO 2012 ,Rafa was ready to beat Djokovic , Rafa beat Novak At Monte Carlo,Rome even at match point made DF this Novak 2,0. Fed wanted Wimbledon
he just loves this tournament. FO is not in his blood,

soooo if Fed of 2006 shows up huh?Look at this point Novak will probably never lose to Federer again on a slow court.......it has nothing to do with skill Fed is too old to outgrind or blast Novak away on clay

Re: "Murray's AO chances scuppered by No. 3 seeding"

It does not need Fed of of 2006 maybe Fed of 2009 to shows up and maybe it would be enough, Or maybe Fed 2011 at FO in SF . No one believed Fed would get to number one but he did. PMac at Indian Wells 2012 SF Federer vs Rafa, No Fed has no chance against Rafa ,It is windy ,slow court no Fed needs perfect condition, indoor court. Blah,blah .Absolutely nonsense. Fed beat Rafa in two sets and went in F to take the title. Fed at 31 took Cincy 2012 with no broken serve
game and it is a MS 1000, Fed is enigma no one can say when he is done Only Fed knows that maybe even he does not know.
