(Kind of) bold prediction: Federer and Nadal will drop out from main draw before R4

First of all, as a new member of this forum, I feel obligated to say 'hello' to everyone. I've been following you guys for many past years, but now, just before the first Grand Slam of the year, I have decided to join you and post here when time allows.

OT: I'm not quite sure how bold this actually is, but I think that Federer and Nadal's decline is going to get even sadder at this AO and that we will see them both out before the second week starts.
They already had not-so-good results at warm-up tournaments this year which makes it even shakier for these guys.
I also think that we will have another Murray-Djoko Slam final. First one that could be actually exciting, though. If Wawrink doesn't decide to interfere... But that's off topic now I guess.

So, how far can you see FeDal go in next two weeks?

RAFA will easily win the Australian Open, as witnessed by winning the all mighty Abu Dhabi and getting a set of Raonic in Brisbane.

Frauderer was exposed when he was absolutely crushed by Zverev and has no chance at the AO. Leave the comebacks to RAFA.

Let's wait for the draw to make a more accurate prediction, but I wouldn't be surprised too.

I think Nadal is as much vulnerable as last year, so another early loss is not only possible, but very likely.

Can't say what I'm expecting from Federer, because he didn't play any real match since July 2016, but he usually is less prone to early round defeats.

I hate it when people put RAFA and Federer in the same sentence. Their ways will be too different. RAFA is the main threat for Djokovic and Murray, whereas Federer is barely a problem for Sascha Zverev.

Finally someone reasonable! Last year Nadal lost in R1; Federer in the SF.

I think before QF is more reasonable -- I think the real danger would start for a Top 15 player for these 2 (particularly Fed).

If they do both bow out before R4, I hope it's to players who can actually go far, i.e. not Verdasco and Seppi.

Re: (Kind of) bold prediction: Federer and Nadal will drop out from main draw before

depends on the draw. nadal has more protection based on his higher seeding, he wont meet a top 10 until the 4th round. fed i think would meet one in the 3rd round at the earliest. in both cases that might be the end of the road. thiem, monfils and cilic(in that order) would be the best draws for them to get for a top 10 early. but i think both should make the 4th round at least, again, depending on the draw. their b or c games are still good enough to handle most of the guys on the tour

Best results in tennis in this year:
Iguana on court at match from Haas in Miami
Wawrinka grilling Mugray in Paris
Haas destroying peak Fraud in my city

A badrep a day, keeps the doctor away

Tennis is shit.
Football is shit too.

Re: (Kind of) bold prediction: Federer and Nadal will drop out from main draw before

I disagree, maybe 1/2, but I think at least one will make it past the QF's

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Stan Wawrinka <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

I agree with federer not even reaching R4 but RAFA will reach the Final if he lands in Mugray's half.
