Kei would be nice because it would reverse the trend of players in their 30s peaking while the young guys disappoint, and while Lopez has a nice game it hasn't really changed much for him to win a MS now reflects badly on the current era. Also Kei has a lot of talent and maybe if an asian won the tournament fans would actually show up It's obvious Murray or Ferrer are going to win though, Ferrer especially is disappointing because he hasn't reached his level from 2007 and yet is getting much better results in this old man era.
My first choice is for Kei to win, 2nd is Ferrer, then Murray/Eden (who's still playing now)
