Thread really isn't relevant until we see Nadal's form. If I absolutely had to choose, however, it would be:

Nadal (because I seriously think he's that good on clay)
Novak
Fed


Murray

Why Del Potro in the poll ? He's not better than Ferrer, Tsonga and Berdych.

You cannot be serious

On topic, Djokovic. Will have to wait and see in what shape Nadal comes back to pass judgement on him, if he's in good shape of course he must be the favorite.

Nadal will be in top shape by RG. Six clay tournaments before RG.

Depends if Nole plays all the clay events that Nadal does.

If he does, then he's the favourite.

too early to tell, let's see how nadal will turn out to be.
people easily discounting murray and fed. although murray does not have spectacular results on clay, i expect him to improve significantly this year. his chances are, like federer's, rather sensitive to nadal's fitness and the side of the draw nadal lands in. djoko's too, but to a lesser degree.

Has to be Nole at this point. I don't know how people can say Nadal is a favourite when he hasn't played in 8 months, who knows what his condition will be when he returns.

If those odds are correct, 15-1 for Rog isn't bad at all for a small stake.

As Rafa still yet to play a match,it's hardly to pick one,but if i have to chose right now,i'd say Djoko

Will have to wait until February's Clay tournaments are over to make a proper judgement.... however I think if Murray is to stand ANY chance at the FO, he needs to enter one of the clay tournaments in South America, buuuuuuuuuuuutttt... he probably won't.
