I mean, he's got a limited number of years left when he'll be in the right mental and physical shape to win RG, after about 26 I don't think he has much of a chance. I would hate to imagine him turning in Sampras-like performances in his last few years at RG, even if he does have far more clay ability than the latter.
Did you add Coria into that post afterwards? Probably not, my reading skills can be poor at times. But anyway, at the moment I'd still call him the favourite for RG, even though it's a bit silly to speculate at the moment when the clay season hasn't even begun.
The trouble is, TF, that what to you is a "Mr. Nobody" is to many other people "A skilled and entertaining clay player who provides a refreshing alternative to the predictable domination of a cabal of top players on fast surfaces throughout the rest of the year." Now I can understand why you'd want to shorten all that to "Mr. Nobody", but it's a tad inaccurate.
