Uhm I don't see Djokovic defending his tittle, it can be..but I won't be surprised if he doesn't, he is not playing like last year, but still good. Murray is more confident right now and he is playing really well, about Nadal..I'm not sure because he was not playing...so I won't say anything about him, and Roger..Roger is Roger, I think he can win this, he is playing more consistent since the US open and I think he is mentally stronger than before, but this court is very slow..so..Roger of Murray for me.

Let's face it. Djokovic is smart. He just wants slams and to keep Nadal from breaking Roger's record. I mean that's his only purpose in life and I appreciate that.

murray may not win the dubai title but he has to be installed as one of the favorites for the title in indian wells.

also murray has most to prove this year as far as i am concerned.

I think the winner tomorrow will be the favorite here- I hope that's Murray, but I'm not it will be.

Yeah, but I think the top 4 are fairly adaptable and confidence/form matters more than surface.

I think Murray may have a little trouble defending his points here and in Miami

I like Murray's chances at IW this year, especially with Lendl in his corner, it's a great opportunity for him to gain a huge amount of points at IW to close the gap on Roger for #3, and then who knows about the rest of the year.

The winner will definitely be one of the Top 4, very curious to see how Rafa plays in his first few matches since he hasn't played a competitive match for about 6 weeks by the time IW starts.

Nole - well he is the defending champ, even though he didn't look sharp at all in Dubai, maybe he will suddenly click into another gear when IW starts, we will see.

Roger - think he will make the SF once more, but Nole or Rafa will be there to stop him advancing to the final.

Can't wait for the draw to be revealed, will be interesting to see which Top 4 draws Delpo in their quarter. Also want to see how Isner, Tsonga, Nishikori, Tomic play, will be quite an interesting tournament.
