Ferrer is not beating Murray in any non-clay Slam, period, less so a final.

Djokovic has always been the favorite. He loses one close match on clay and all of a sudden he is not the best?

Excuse me, RG final anyone

On Topic, Novak is the favourite. I believe Rafa can make it through Fed and Murray and give us a great final .

That is Nadal fan logic. Pay it no attention. Djokovic is more in NAdal's head than ever. Nadal is probably not getting past Murray anyway. Murray could potentially beat Djokovic in the final.

Djokovic
obviously
which is a shame because arguably Murray, Federer, and Nadal are all better grass court players
this is the most incredibly slanted draw I've ever seen

Djokovic by a long way, swap Berdych with Del Potro though and you could argue it's one of the easiest draws for a top player in a slam.

Murray got pretty lucky with his draw too though. There's no one who should even push him too hard before the quarters while in the quarters he's projected to play Tsonga who would have surely want to play instead of a Nadal or Berdych.

Djokovic. I believe that if Djokovic had hand picked his draw, it'd look almost exactly like this, only with Cilic/Gasquet instead of Haas and maybe del Potro and Tsonga switching places in the draw just in case.

It's debatable as far as the QF draw is concerned I guess, Berdych did beat him here back in 2010 but he has developed such a habit of choking to Novak since that I think the Serb will be happy with this draw. It should still be his biggest obstacle to the final if the seeds hold up, just like at AO.

The other half is far more stacked, containing 4 of the 5 best grasscourt performers of the past few years.

Easy. Between the two best best players ATM, Nadal or Djokovic. Who wins? Who knows? End of.

Djokovic and Nadal is an awful final for Wimbledon. If they're gonna face off in a Slam final wait till USO or AO.

Nadal's draw is quite unlucky. He might have to beat all of the top3 to win the whole thing.

And if it goes like that, then after passing R16 he'll only be a (slight) favorite against Murray at this surface.

If it rains during his 2nd week matches, I may even start to feel sorry for Nadal, as there's no chance he's gonna win it indoor.

He was projected to face Murray in the semis, it's not his fault Murray mugged out earlier. Djokovic's actual projected opponents are definitely slightly softer, another Berdych-Ferrer combo like in Australia and no threatening opponents in week 1, at least on paper.

Oh god, please don't let this happen. That final would kill grass court tennis. It would be over. Finished. Their 2011 final was the worst Wimbledon final of all time. Luckily for tennis, Murray should take care of Nadal if Federer doesn't.
