This.

If Fed somehow beats Murray (not too probable, but might happen), his confidence will probably get back to 2012 Wimbledon level. And against Grasserer 2012 on Wimbledon, Djokovic is in big trouble.

Murray would be a clear favorite against Nole, playing on a surface he loves, with the crowd support and after straight-setting Nole in last Olympics here. The only problem for Andy might be the pressure, but he seems to cope with it better now, as USO showed.

Doesn't even have the dignity of keeping the posts with those outlandish predictions.

Yeah it's a cowardly act. It just proves that he was trolling and didn't believe in what he was saying. No problem, I was onto him from the start and have immortalized his fakery in my sig

Jerzy Janowicz. Had a nice run here last time and can do serious damage with his big serve and heavy groundstrokes. Whether he can keep it up for long enough is a big if.

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

Still laughing?

Rosol was only there on last year's performance and Janowicz, well, he has lived up to it, wouldn't you say?

Ferrer not being on either list was a fantastic choice, a classic Ferrer type tournament. Not a threat to the big names and not for the title. Del Potro on the other hand.

Tsonga not being amongst the favourites was right as well, although injury prevented us from really seeing how good of a decision that was.

Federer and Nadal were always going to be favourites, but the question marks I put next to their names have turned out to be all too right unfortunately.
