His biggest threats on the road to the final are Gulbis and Janowicz...

edit: Note that I didn't say draw but road, two different things.

He will never win Wimbledon if he mugs out early this year

The game bores me now

Federer - Del Potro

I would normally say it's very easy, but then I remember Federer fans hyping up Youzhny to be a God on grass, so no.

Well it's certainly now an easier path than Novak has.

On paper yes, but Gulbis and Janowicz could be tests, if he faces tem.

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

Youzhny got injured today so...doubt that.

Some poeple tend to have short memory and easily forget about Nadal's AO 2009, USO 2010, and RG 2010 draws, where he beat all time greats like Melzer, Verdasco, Simon, and Youzhny in the semis and quarters.

It's a poll with question in it. You're free to vote no and suggest some other easier road to the finals .

Re: Is Murray's Wimbledon 2013 road to the final easiest in GS history?

It's certainly become a lot easier and he'd have to lose to someone with a bit of a lower ranking than himself, I'm not sure about easiest ever though...you can only say that if he actually makes the final and with the first three days gone, I'm not 100% confident he will.

MURRAY. DJOKOVIC

Could be similar to Nadal's USO 2010 if he wins it. Faces Youzhny en route, Fiasco QF (if GOATbis decides to tank of course) and probably Djokovic F.

No, people said he was top 10 on grass.

Nadal RG 2010 opponents ranked: 647356, 44, 33, 29, 21, 27, 7.

Federer's RG in 09 was barely any harder, he only faced one top 10 (Del Potro, who ran out of gas). Or at Wim that year, didn't play a single top 5. Or Aus 2007, where his highest ranked opponent was Robredo.

Or Nadal Wim 2008: Schuettler in the semis, and his pigeon in the final.
