Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon
I dont know if Nadal is the favourite. I mean, it is true that he probably would be favorite against Federer or Murray, but at the same time Djokovic is the favorite against him would he draw Djokovic in SF.
So we have the follwing matchups: Murray>Federer,Djokovic Nadal>Federer, Murray Federer>Djokovic Djokovic>Nadal
Murray and Nadal joint favorites that is. Nadal needs to avoid Djokovic in his SF/QF, Murray needs to avoid Nadal in his SF/QF.
I am also not that sure that Murray still has matchup issues with Nadal ever since improving his forehand, I think Murray has a much better chanse at defeating Nadal than Nadal defeating Djokovic at this point.
Federer-Murray however is the closest we get to a 50-50 matchup, even in Australia (his worst surface to play Murray IMO) and deadtired and outplayed he showed how mentally stronger he is in these occasions. I think Federer might even be the favorite would they play in a final.
All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
