Djokovic in 3, perhaps in 4. Hoping for a Djokovic-Federer (or Djokovic-Tsonga ) final.
A Ferrer - Chardy final would be great for the sport.
I am the Nelson Mandela of MTF
Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
Even a hot Almagro would be a tougher opponent for Nole since at least Nico has weapons (Serve + Damaging power from both wings) unlike Ferrer. You simply can't out grind Novak and Ferrer can't do anything apart from grinding.
So yeah the result of this match should be NID if Djokovic plays decently.
Kevin Durant - The Real MVP
Djokovic - Zverev - Tipsarevic - Tomic - Cilic - Sock - Lacko
