Kind of funny that Roddick's got two more votes than Verdasco despite the fact that he won't even be playing. Shows how much confidence people have in poor Nando. :awww: But still, just qualifying is a big achievement.

Still think Djokovic anyway.

Andy Murray will win because

a) he'll be well rested
b) the home favorite
c) he's the king of 3-setters

Fed will crash out in the RR(can't be arsed anymore), DelPo as well(too injured, tired). Basically the semis I can see Murray, Rafa, Djokovic, Davydenko.

Horatio Caine

Very tough to predict, and at the moment I'd whittle it down to be between Fed, Djokovic and Davydenko...and, as crazy as it might sound, I'd probably put Fed 3rd out of those, despite his head-to-head with Kolya. Clearly, Davydenko looking very good over these last couple of months, and it would be a disappointment if he flops at this event. Djokovic looks like he is tiring, but if he can keep himself together he will surely be tough to beat.

Assuming Soderling replaces Roddick, obviously a reasonable chance he gets up to something...although I'm not sure I can picture him beyond the SF.

Nadal, Muzza and Del Potro looking pretty rough at the moment, which is a shame. Not sure JMDP will be fit enough to launch a serious challenge, and obviously it is dangerous to play down Rafa's chances. Wouldn't be surprised if Muzza fails to survive the group stage, especially if he gets drawn in the 'group of death' - e.g. Fed/Djok, Davydenko and Soderling. If he pats the ball back at 10mph against them, he won't know what will hit him.

Verdasco...well, no surprise that everyone will want to draw him. :p :awww:


My prediction...I'll pump for Djokovic. As long as his energy levels are okay, I can see him beating anyone and everyone in the event. Couldn't say the same for anyone else.

Djokovic is the form player, but he has not yet been able to retain a title. Between him and Nadal I think.

Dini
11-14-2009, 12:20 PM
My money is on Djokovic to defend a title for the first time in his career.

Having said that, I think Fed will be the "dark horse". :p I know it's silly to call the number 1 in the world an outsider but going by his current form he'll struggle to get a set of the top 8. He's admitted that he's not been playing the game that he wants to play (aggressive and attacking), and that he wants to change that before London. If he does and the timing off the forehand plus the movement click, then he's got every chance (especially if he's serving Wimbledon final 09 style :p).

fed is done for the year. he is training for the AO

nadal is out of form. he is getting SFs due to high seed and cakewalk draw.

djokovic is playing like a no.1 and a champion at the moment. he will win.

andy murray is very out of form. valencia mean nothing. he just had wrist injury.

del po and roddick are 'injured' players.

verdasco should be an injured player too, he is due to have surgery.

4/8 are 'injured' players.

Fed: was seriously hacked off last year at failing in TMC. Not a slam, but should still be important to him imo.

Nadal: nothing to offer against the top guys atm. Since his comeback at Montreal, he pretty much loses to the first quality player he meets. Needed a choke-of-the-year multi-collapse from Almugro to win, then chokes from Boredo and Tsonga also. Ran into Djoko, no choke, slaughter.

Djoko: over reaction to his recent results imo. Nadal was setting him up with his short rubbish, very easy to hit winners. Looked like he was going to lose against Sod, until he completley imploded in the final set and hit every second shot into the net or long. In Basel, needed chokes from Wawa and Steps to get past them.

Murray: looked horrendous in Valencia, serious lapses of concentration for long periods. Huge kudos to his matchplay efficiency that he won the tournament, but that's not going to work against top guys. I'm not too concerned with the loss to Stepanek, that looked entirely like a tank to me, the body language was very much saying "not bothered", no anger at the performance ..... and he did win the set 6-1. Still, the same rustiness from Valencia and the Blake match seems to be there, you can't like his chances in London.

DelPot: apparently the injury isn't a major thing, just retired out of precaution. He's barely played a match since the US Open though, will surely be hard for him to do much.

Roddick: fitness? Hard to tell how seriously he rates the tournament, but the shift away from carpet won't hurt him.

Davy: might be just falling off the form tree since Shanghai - in Valencia he looked really good against Youzhny, but then went into one of his bizarre errorfests and threw away the match. Not too worrying cos the low bounce there doesn't really suit him, but then in Paris with a slightly higher bounce he should have been in contention to win..... and really flopped.

Verdasco: out of gas, multiple injuries.

jcempire
11-15-2009, 01:39 PM
Yes, DJOKER is going to win

nothing is huge to FED after he done 15 Slams

Nadal.....He still not 100%.

Murray.... He is looking for next year where he may have a brand new year. (Murray is going to be No 1 next year) Keep eye on

JMDP..... I hate to say. He may not win another big title as slam

Roddick..... Injury cost him a lot.

Djokovic, Del Potro, and Soderling in his draw? That's the worst case scenario and quite possible and a nightmare for him.

This would give Rogie: Murray, Davydenko, and Verdasco, quite favorable for him.

Just would be something if that groupings are exactly that tomorrow, then we know for absolute 100%
sure who ends the year #1.

I can't wait for tomorrow's groupings to be made.

Djoko trashed the both of them the last two tournaments, true. But that doesn't mean it will be the same story Djoko will have to play either of them (or even both) again. Wins in the past don't garantee anything.

Neither do losses, and in Rafa's case, especially, I have no doubt that he'll try and give it his all, and anyone should know by now to NEVER count him out.

As for Federer, yes, he CAN win this, he's proven that quite often - but then again, he's so inconsistent and mentally flakey at times nowadays that I wouldn't be surprised not seeing him go past the RR stage either. :o

As to the other contestants - I'm not ruling out Davydenko or Murray either. Davydenko has shown he's capable of coming far, and as for Murray, I expect him to come into this tournament fully rested and back in good form.
For the rest of the field, no I don't see them winning it, but ANY of them is surely capable of causing a big upset when they have one of those days when 'everything' works.

In other words, this WTF is very, very open indeed.

Federer got that second set handed over to him by Djoko DF'ing and UE'ing, not due to his own better playing. Djokovic should have taken that match in straights imho. :shrug:

Federer's serve was really solid after being broken in the second set. Djokovic wasn't playing anything stellar throughout but in the second Federer was more solid than Djokovic. I'm sorry but a three set win is never a thrashing. That's like saying Federer thrashed Gonzalez in IW this year, when in fact he lost the second set. Never mind that he lost the second set due to wild errors at the end - no one called that a thrashing. MTF is getting more baffling by the day. Three set victories are seen as outclassing, crushing and crashing. :worship:

Crushing is when you win about 4-5 games and can't find an answer throughout the entire match. At least that's how crushing used to be seen.

Fed's forehand was dire that day and he still went to 3.

It wasn't the same level of trashing that Djok gave Nadal anyway, Nadal was utterly hopeless, he was a total non-entity in that match, would have needed Djoko to start making tonnes of random UEs to have a chance.

Fed's game was just off against Djok, his forehand especially, on a good day Fed will beat Djok, at the moment Nadal's highest level would still fall short.

I'm not upset about it, it's your opinion. I just don't think that a match where Djokovic only converted on his 6th or 7th set point to win the first set, had his serve broken twice in the second set and was break points down in the third set is considered a thrashing, especially when you see how badly the other guy was playing. The fact that Fed managed to sneak in a set playing so horrendously confirms that. Djokovic was the most solid and consistent overall but a crushing it was not. It was a solid victory, but Novak can play much better than he did in the final and he confirmed that a week later as far as I'm concerned.

Fedex all the way. He's the freshest of them all, saved energy for this tittle and gonna get it.

First contender - Muzza. Playing at home and second freshest as been resting a bit due to injury.

Well, it should be interesting, now that the field and the groups are set. Can't wait to see Group B in action. It'll be the toughest group and probably have the best matches. Even though Djokovic is the hottest player on tour right now, by no means will i just pick him to win it. Nothing is really set in stone. For all we know, Nadal or Soderling or even Verdasco could win it. The field is talented enough where anything could and probably will happen. I wish all 8 guys best of luck.

Isn't he himself out of form as well? :lol:

winning a masters a month ago = out of form??

anyway, federer will probably win this tournament, he'll have more motivation with it being in london.

Roger has tougher competition top to bottom. Rafa has the toughest opponent in the whole tourney though.

Totally agree with that. I can't remember a single great Fed-Djoko match where both played at high level. It's always one is great/solid and the other one is off. Nadal on the other hand always seems to bring best out of Novak...and vice versa (on clay/grass at least)

montreal 07, djoko won in 3 sets, two tb's went his way.

uso 07, fed in straights but first two sets were damn close. might be said djoko choked in front of pending greatness. it was a quick, high quality encounter.

ao 08? that was pretty high level form both, djoko just too good.

Gut says Murray will surprise. Perhaps that means reaching SF, I don't know. Roger's form has been shite of late, could go 1-2 in his group and be gone in RR.

It's disgustingly obvious that Nadal will NOT win. Federer has a chance, but Djokovic is riding the biggest high right now. I think it'll come down to a Fed-Novak final.

Federer hasn't done too much since his amazing spring and summer run, but then again he hasn't had an opportunity to play large meaningful tournaments. I think he's still got an edge over most players. He'll do well enough to retain his #1 ranking.

Let's face it... a different Federer shows up for the big tournaments. You cannot count him out because he has only played two tournaments since his USOpen final appearance. Hey... he lost the final in Basel... not bad. Paris was an obvious mistake.

I'll give you that one.

:spit: Crap of the highest order, both were actively trying to choke this away but Djokovic was just too good in the end.
Probably the worst slam final Roger has ever played outside of clay.

N. Djokovic

the serbian slayer is the man at the moment. he has won 10 matches in a row. confidence is sky high and he is healthy and fit. he will be hard to deal with.

WTF (:spit:) does Essential British garb mean?! :scratch:

Dressed to kill in their Essential British garb, the eight players who are to draw the largest one-week crowd at a tennis event in this country to the O2 arena will be pictured tomorrow (that would be Friday) on the banks of the River Thames, hoping that the forecast gale force winds do not force a constant reshaping of their hairstyles.
...
Andy Murray — drawn into group A with Roger Federer, Juan Martín del Potro and Fernando Verdasco — is expected to be first on in the singles, generating a sizeable BBC audience.

Just on the question of half-decent Fed-Djokovic matches, I thought the U.S. Open 2008 semi was pretty good.
