Who's your favorite now the draw's been made?

All fingers are pointed out on Djokovic now since the general opinion is that he's got the easiest draw. But it won't be easy for him, that's for sure!
Rafa gets to play Federer in quarters and that's far from being concluded.
I doubt Federer still has the energy to go through Rafa, Murray and Nole back to back. That leaves us with Murray.
Murray has the easiest draw to the semis and will be fresher in his match vs Rafa/Fed. It is the opportunity he can't afford to miss knowing his"good friend" Djokovic would probably be in that final.

So, my money is on Murray this time. What do you guys think?

Re: Who's your favorite now the draw's been made?

A repeat of the 2011 final Djokovic-Nadal is well possible.
Both Federer and Murray are good match-ups for Nadal. Nadal beat Federer and Murray already here at Wimbledon in the past. And he looks full of confidence. But you never know with Nadal on grass. Last year he lost to Rosol. And grass is also not Djokovic best surface.
In A Djokovic-Nadal final I think Djokovic is slightly favourite. Nadal wont be able to get so many balls back in to court on grass as at Roland Garros.
But it is a bit early to talk so far ahead.

Ferrer. Berdych beats Djokovic, Tsonga makes it to the final for the bottom half and Ferrer beats Delpo, Berdych and Tsonga back to back to win Wimbledon and make Lenders cry.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Djokovic is no doubt the one who comes out of the draw looking the best but I'm still going with Murray. He's just the best on this surface. No kind of draw changes that fact.

I agree. If Djok and Nadal meet in finals and he comes firing from all cylinders then yes, but even that is questionable.

Your trolling isn't even amusing anymore.

Fixed.

I'm not into that vulture stuff but if Ferrer won Wimbledon tennis would die a little.

Re: Who's your favorite now the draw's been made?

Nole
Nadal
Murray
Roger

As much as I would like to see Roger win Wimby again... with this draw it just doesn't seem possible.

Rafa will do anything to prevent Federer from winning more slams. Anyway, Fed, Murray and Nole back to back will be tough even for him

Novak is the heavy favourite now. Rafa/Roger-Murray will take out the energy of whoever advance to the final.

Novak >> Andy > Rafa > roger
