Murray has already ruled out playing in February. He could conceivably change his mind, but if so he would surely pick Dubai over South America.

Roger, of course.....best there ever was- best there is. Regardless of the Haters, the dude is flat out amazing to watch... to perform at that level for as long as he has is crazy. His generation has moved on and he's still at the top with the young guns.
WORD !

Nadal... The guy owns that tournament. Even Djokovic in super mode can't match him for some reason. I hate to say it, but the only way Nole can beat Nadal at RG is if they meet earlier than final, Nadal is below 90% of his skills and Djokovic is in the super mode!

1.Nadal - Will probably be 100% physically ready for RG, but question is how will his game work after long absence, but anyway he has a lot of time to raise his form for French and the fact that he is starting the season in Chile just helps it. It really much also depends on his ranking position and draw
2.Djokovic - Will be even more confident and focused for RG than a last year. Second favorite if not tied with Nadal
3. Federer - A favorite only for SF match and only if he draws Murray TBH

Nole would beat Rafa and Roger to reach final. In the other half, Pics would beat Muzz, so it'd be Nole-Pics final.
Ferrer actually usually beats Djokovic on clay, so I'd like that

agreed that djok will be determined to win it, id put him as favourite. i wouldnt be surprised to see delpo make a big move there though - he plays really well on the clay - the ball sits up perfectly for him to tee off on

Too early for this thread! The only person i'd be confident in picking as of now is Novak.

Nadal - unknown quantity - how are his knees, his health , fitness. What will his seeding be? If he had Murray in QFs Fed in semis Novak in finals ---that would actually be extremely tough for Rafa.

Federer- unknown quantity - Expected QF place beyond that idk, i cant see him wining here the surface is just not suited to him at this phase in his career.

Murray - unkown quantity--- With excellent movement and now a big FH, his game could translate really well onto clay with Mr L help Andy could be real genuine threat this year at RG.

Del Potro - Plays really well on clay, has he got the fitness to go toe to toe with the likes of novak and nadal and win?

Ferrer- Plays great on clay a QF place at least maybe higher depends on draw.

Negative. Having Del Potro in the poll makes the thread great. Much better player than reknowned claycourt mugs like, oh I don't know, Ferrer...
