Re: Rank the ten favourites to win FO

Murray win FO?

Dimitrov too high. Has he made a QF yet?

Re: Rank the ten favourites to win FO

1-10 Nadal.

Only Thiem is an outsider for me, but he has a horrible gameplan playing Rafa (standing 800 feet back) so I only consider him a candidate when someone else knocks out Rafa.

Murray and Djokovic are hopeless, Delpo isn't at his old level, Ferrer is old, Nishikori is a glass canon, Cuevas isn't good enough, neither is Goffin, Raonic isn't that great on clay, Dimitrov will just falter, Wawrinka is awful this year.

Maybe the Fog?

Murray lost in five to Djokovic in 2015 won the opening set in 2016 and beat the defending champion easily in 2016. What is so strange about him winning RG?

What's with the Wawrinka hype on MTF these days
Murray greatest ever British player

what is strange is your unbalanced belief that 2015 and 2016 have any bearing on what we're seeing in 2017.

i'm not saying that history isn't an indicator of what to expect in the future, but anyone who has seen Murray this year knows he is playing abysmally and can't be counted on until proven otherwise.

nadal is the overwhelming favourite against anyone he will play at RG

Re: Rank the ten favourites to win FO

Right now it feels like only Thiem could tickle Nadal a little - I hope he doesn't injure himself before RG.

Re: Rank the ten favourites to win FO

Nadal will probably wini it, only players with a chance of beating him are peak Warinka and peak Fognini. But if they do upset him they can lose from anyone so if Nadal for some reason falls (injury or otherwise) then Thiem could be favorite.

"peak Fognini" beating RAFA?

Stanimal won't either if RAFA plays like he is now.
