Definitely, even before tournament i said he is No.1 favorit for title, now with Rafa gone it is much easier for him QF - Tsonga, he is 4-0 vs him on grass and Tsonga might not even make QF with Gulbis now in R2, SF vs Roger - well he knows he can beat him, if it will be outdoors i say Andy is clear favorit if indoors it is 50-50 match and F if Nole makes it Andy will beat him he is superior on grass

How are sure Murray will beat Fed on grass easier? Tsonga can make Murray fight s for his live in QF if Murray gets there. Youzhny can say something as well in 4rd if he plays as he did in Halle. Fed will not be tired as he was in F of OG.

Yes Andy Murray is superior on grass because he won 7 Wimbledon titles. And Fed played all his finals indoors . Good thinking !!!

I'm almost hoping Gulbis can KO Tsonga in R2.

Although Andy usually beats Tsonga their matches are invariably close and I have a bad feeling that if they meet in the quarters then this is Tsonga's timr to win one.

If Andy does make the semis let's hope it's played "outdoors".

Superior on grass comparing with Novak which is fact and 1 Wimby title for Novak doesn´t make difference, when Andy has 3 Queens, Wimby F, OG gold and so on - clearly he is better grass-courter than Nole

About Roger - their SF match might be tough one i think Andy is going to be favorit outdoors and indoors it is more even match

Roger played well all year last year, except from the USO onward. He played well from the 2011 indoor season onward. So for a year he was playing really well and consistently. I don't see how he played better at Wimbledon or IW. It was the same level throughout. He hasn't lost as much power as you imply. He just hasn't played well since the AO.

best chance ever... i don't know

he has a nice shot at the title, but his way won't be easy. tsonga, fed, djokovic... he also had a great chance 2009 and 2012. i guess the winner of the bottom semifinal will win the title.

I agree, he could beat Jo and then the Swiss Miss, in the semifinal. I would not underestimate Novak, on grass. He played not up to his standards last summer, for whatever reason. He can play on grass though, that return of serve is killer to anybody.

As it turns out, the talented French shotmaker and the Old Diva will not be around

The Tradesman will nonetheless take the trophy

GOATbis is the main obstacle for him in the bottom half.

GOATbis gonna GOAT. I'm not saying this for nothing, it's a prophecy that could be fulfilled here, but at some point it shall.

I completely disagree. Either you didn't watch him during his prime or you've forgot. He would hit rocket winners from anywhere on the court with the forehand. Any ball which wasn't deep enough or with enough power would be attacked. It was the most lethal groundstroke in tennis.

Against Nadal at Indian Wells, he actually attacked in the manner he used to, whereas today, as I've said doesn't possess the consistent power he once did. During that match, he was hitting the ball harder throughout than as long as I could remember. As for the Murray Wimbledon final, Federer hasn't played a better all-round 3 sets against a big opponent in a pressure situation since Djokovic at Roland Garros and even still, I think Federer played better in the Wimbledon final. He was dictating points more against Murray than he was against Djokovic. Djokovic is hardly a powerhouse and looked to be the man with the easier power in the match. Federer was far from his best, but for the stage of his career he was at, was surprisingly stable in all areas.
