It's a tough call because Rafa will be seeded 5th, question mark on Djokos clay form and Murray's showing, but I guess


1. Nadal

After those two, hopefully Delpo but more likely Ferrer and then Clayray.

Murray has not been too impressive since winning USO, dunno about him

well exactly. I mean Ferrer is a good player but nowhere even close to Fed. Suddenly, everyone here is claiming he is so special on clay. He is good, no question about it, but he simply hasn't done anything really astonishing on clay ... well unless that win against Murray at RG it that counts as 'special'.

Because it's 2013. He's 99th in the world after almost a year out with injury :lol: It'd take a titanic effort to reach the QF given who he could possibly draw along the way, let alone win the thing.

I think we just have different definitions of a dark horse.

Something like:

1) Nadal
2) Djokovic
3) Del Potro
4) Federer
5) Berdych

Followed closely by Ferrer/Murray

Mostly the same as in previous years, only I think Del Potro will probably have a showing at least on par with an ailing Federer. Having put up what he did at IW should give him great confidence.

Berdych, I feel like, has been better than Ferrer on the big clay stage. Only, in his semis two years ago, he ran into a blistering Soderling (took him to 5), and fell short to DP in the R16 last year. With his new found consistency, coupled with his monstrous game on clay, he should do well as long as he isn't burned out.

I'd like Murray to ascend there, but his recent showing on slow hards does not bode well. He'll probably make deep runs, but I can't see him decisively overcoming any of the other big players on the dirt.

I prefer Fed to Ferrer and would like you to be right here, but:
a) Fed plays bad this year, while Ferrer seems to continue his hot 2012 form
b) Clay is a natural environment for David, while it can't be said about Roger
c) Roger won't play as much clay, while Ferrer will play a lot more and with his incredible consistensy it means much. He'll probably reach SF o even F in Monte Carlo in which Fed won't even compete.
Unless they both land in the same part of the draw, Ferrer will probably achieve more on clay.

Even if all that's true, I said excellent clay season, for someone who loses to Ferrer every time they meet on clay. A convincing start to the year, as far as clay is concerned, would be something like Nadal's performance.

Not to mention that losing 2 matches in just 4 tournaments, though good, isn't exceptionally impressive. Each time Murray lost, Djokovic went one step further than him, so with him and Nadal thrown in, it's not indisputable that Murray is having "the best year of all players so far," though I agree a case can certainly be made, and of course all the credit to him for doing as well as he has.

Murray is second in the race, only just behind Djokovic, despite having played less tournaments than everyone else. That makes him the real #1 in the race in my book.

Also Clay is probably faster than Miami was, that will help Murray.

Oh what a typical statement by a Murray fan. Funny that they're the same group that loves to call him Slamray now that he has one. So are they a game-changing deal or are they not, or do people just flip-flop depending on if it's favorable at the moment?

Like I said, the Race is definitely one way to look at it, but Murray doesn't have the fewest losses this year, and nor can it be said that people haven't been outplaying him multiple times. Believe whatever works for "your book," but it's unrealistic to present that as an objective and indisputable conclusion.

Yeh, I would accept that point. Murray should have straight setted the Swiss. Still though, considering he won every other match prior in routine fashion, it was really unfortunate that he got that on his foot. It was not even a normal blister, it was an absolute beast. Once the Serb levelled the match it was over.

This point is obviously not directed at you, but just because Murray does not have an outstanding pedigree on clay does not mean that it will not change. The man works so hard, and it would be foolish to write him off. I expect at least a clay court final this year for the Scot.

Murray I think will have his usual clay season, but may at least benefit from better draws this year (if he misses Rafa in the QFs). I just don't see how his clay game can be expected to have improved. His lack of penetration on clay is not just a mental thing.

Ferrer, del Potro and Berdych will probably all do better than Murray, if they stay fit.

I personally think that if we ranked all the players in the world solely by how good they are on clay, Murray might sit near the back end of the top 10, maybe the teens.

His big problem is he's too stubborn to play any clay events other than RG, and the 3 masters 1000 events.

I'd love Andy to find his feet by playing more clay events.

with djokovic looking like hes out i fully expect federer to step up and be nadals main challange on clay courts, however ferrer may get more ranking points than federer on clay that will be from the amount of clay tournements he plays. all this is hypothetical as it will need federer and nadal to be on opposite sides of the draw at each tournement. by the french open though it will be between djokovic and nadal again though, i hope someone stops nadal in a couple of the build up tournements because if not he will be unstopable again.

Thanks for the laugh.

First of all, Djokovic doesn't look out, we don't know anything yet. He may miss MC, but I doubt he'll miss much more. Let's wait the scan results first.

And if Federer is Nadal's main challenge on clay this year, we may as well skip it and play Wimbledon.

As nice as it would be to skip the clay season if we play Wimbledon right now in 8C and driving rain it would take months to complete. As much as I dislike watching Nadal pimp slap his bitches in Monte Carlo and Paris even that is preferable to watching John MugEnroe and Lindsey Davenport ramble on about the quality of pears at the BBC table while Henman does his best "retarded squirrel" impression in a attempt to look interested.

Don't forget Greg Rusedski, the highlight of every Wimbledon.
