Fed plays Halle to avoid Murray at Queens, FACT!
Federer will make Mandy and his BF cry even harder if they meet at Wimbledon again this year.

It was Nole. That does not make him a better grass courter though.

Do you consider Gaudio to be a better claycourter than Djokovic?

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

I don't know why everyone is practically ruling out a Djokovic win at Wimbledon.

The 2012 SF he played against Roger was one of his most inexplicably woeful performances in a GS match in the last few years. Seriously I remember before that match everyone was saying Djokovic was a certainty to be in the final and that Fed had no chance...

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

I agree that Murray is a more natural grass-courter than Nole. But, it seems that people on here expect that if Murray and Nole meet, it'll be 6-1 6-1 6-0 for Andy.

I think Andy can beat the other 3. Will he? I'll go with no for now.

B-Nard
Nole
Borna
Kei

Federer's variety, good serving and change-ups exposed Nole's weakness on the surface- his movement.

Maybe some people forget this...

Dont ever underestimate Novak on any surface... if he won in Paris, he will be relaxed an even more dangerous on grass.

Muzza has a chance, everyone from Top4 has...it will be a great Wimbledon

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

As long as the top three (and I mean Djoko, Fed, Dull) are healthy and still play, Murray is never THE Favorite.

A favorite maybe yes, co-favorite is pushing it.

That's because many people in MTF are teenagers who started to watch tennis in 2011, and forgot that a not-tired Federer in grass court is as deadly as Nadal in clay court.

Djokotards are a delusional bunch, what else is new?

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

Depends on the draw. With an improved forehand and mental strength I reckon he has a shot against Nadal, so lean favourite for now.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

Where's the option for losing against someone other than Federer or Nadal? Crap poll.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (4): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015 and Sydney 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 2 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

So we're not even at RG yet, the form of most players still in doubt, and yet we've another thread for the resident MTF experts and prognosticators to sound off on.

Now we're going to be bored from the end of RG to Wimbly because you jumped the gun

Patience...

p.s - Murray is NOT the fav for wimbledon.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!
