Well the two players most likely to beat Murray at Wimbledon are Nadal and Federer.

He is also willing to come to the net (even if he's not brilliant) and he is, after all, the world #1, so if he plays well, you'd need a very good performance to overcome him. Or be Federer.
I can't good rep you but it amazes me when these young guys come up with these silly/stupid posts. It's like someone saying 'Fed shouldn't have won 17 slams'. well, he did. we support this or that player but please people, try to be logical. It's not too difficult.

I think he might actually win these, but how can you argue about something known, right?

Default Re: is murray the favourite for wimbledon

I dont know if Nadal is the favourite. I mean, it is true that he probably would be favorite against Federer or Murray, but at the same time Djokovic is the favorite against him would he draw Djokovic in SF.

So we have the follwing matchups: Murray>Federer,Djokovic Nadal>Federer, Murray Federer>Djokovic Djokovic>Nadal

Murray and Nadal joint favorites that is. Nadal needs to avoid Djokovic in his SF/QF, Murray needs to avoid Nadal in his SF/QF.

I am also not that sure that Murray still has matchup issues with Nadal ever since improving his forehand, I think Murray has a much better chanse at defeating Nadal than Nadal defeating Djokovic at this point.

Federer-Murray however is the closest we get to a 50-50 matchup, even in Australia (his worst surface to play Murray IMO) and deadtired and outplayed he showed how mentally stronger he is in these occasions. I think Federer might even be the favorite would they play in a final.

If I had to choose a favourite for Wimbledon, I'd choose Murray. Hadn't there been some genuine excellence from Federer at the end of the second set last year I think that Murray would've won Wimbledon last year.

Murray will never be favorite for anything, not even Judy's favorite son.

That's not all the odds available on Betfair, just the ones nearest the top in terms of favourites.

Calm down fanboy. I will say one thing: if Murray reaches the final against Fed or Nadal, I will root for Murray. Only because I want Nole to get closer to their slam tally.

Nope, 7-time champion and current title holder Roger Federer is the clear favorite for Wimbledon.
