Until we see Rafa play it must be Novak.

Del Potro just had to avoid Chardy and he will be in the final.

Favourite? 2011, perhaps (though the bookies would argue against you) but certainly not 2012. The favourite won last year.

Pretty sad to think that it's kind of possible to predict the early RG favourites after the AO 2013.

You would have thought of as a loony to do such a thing even 10 years ago. Alas, that's the reality of surface homogenisation.

Cmon man. For a guy who hasn't stepped on court in 6 months, has had to drop out of a friggin exhibition with a virus and now out of a slam, you're telling me he's automatically a favorite for a tournament 6 months down the road?

2009 wasn't a choke, his fitness was just absurdly low at the time. He absolutely dominated Federer in the first 3 sets - Fed didn't even get a break point in 3 sets - but Fed somehow eeked out the second set in a tiebreak and eventually outlasted Delpo. It was a bit like the AO semifinal this year (Murray vs Fed) in terms of ascendency, only with Murray remaining strong for 5 sets and Delpo running out of gas.

Shame, since he'd definitely have beaten Soderling in the final, was only a few points away from a RG title. But that match made him improve his fitness, which proved crucial at USO so it was all good.

If Nadal plays, Nadal is the favourite.

theres only two possible reasons:

1) people are deluded

2) we're living in a weak clay court era that allows a part-timer to win RG, kind of like how serena williams can come back in to kick the rest of the WTA field in grand slams after playing 2 matches for the whole year
