is murray the favourite for wimbledon

a lot of people seem to assume that murray is the favourite for wimbledon this year i believe that this is just a knee-jerk reaction after last year. i beleive a match between federer and murray federer is still the favourite, and against nadal i give murray little chance. and against djokovic you could say murray is better on grass but as it is a grandslam it could go either way. so given the fact that the only person murray would be favourite against in the top 4 is djokovic and murray will likely be ranked 2 at wimbledon he will have to go through either roger or nadal to get to him so i dont think he will win it this year. btw i do think he will win it in the next 2 or 3 years once or mabye twice.

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

Murray is the favourite vs Federer and Djoko King on grass, imo. However with Nadal around Murray is not the favourite.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Yes.

Nadal is his biggest threat there, if he can avoid him I reckon he'll take the title.

Fed plays Halle to avoid Murray at Queens, FACT!

If Federer is well rested and in good form I see him and Murray as joint second favourites behind Nadal. Nole just below those three and then Berdych and Tsonga.

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

Djockovic is still the favorite against Murray. Nadal is also the favorite against Murray. federer is irrelevant lets forget about him... Murray is the 3rd favorite and can win the title if he is in feds half and Nadal and Djockovic kill each other in the semis.

Sounds about right.

Shame not all guys who dislike Murray can still be objective like yourself.

I don't think he is favourite but he has a good shot.

Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

There is no clear favourite for Wimbledon. It's quite balanced and can depend on the draw, match-ups and upsets.
