Re: Basel: Who will win?

Well the Tokyo draw was tricky but this is clearly karmic payback for the Shanghai draw :)

Every one of those players he's struggled with in matches and usually struggles against even if he beats them. He ain't winning this tournament, in my view.
Yeah, he's not the favorite anymore if he ever was, but maybe things will break his way. Shanghai wasn't an easy draw at first either- a string of upsets changed that.

Tokyo was only a few weeks ago- I know you are trying to block it out, but it did happen. Unless Nalbandian-Baghdatis-Ferrer-Nadal are nobodies. :eek:
look at his GS draws this year.....RG draw in particular a joke ...AO draw a joke .....you have to accept it

Why wouldn't we compare two fall ATP 500's to one another- instead of slams and so-called MM tournaments?
Actually, most of the top players in slams have had really easy draws- look at Nadal's. But we aren't talking about slams are we, just tournaments in general. 2/3 most recent tourneys for Murray have been very difficult draws, you'll just have to accept that and move on.:wavey:

Perhaps someone needs to explain to you the difference between a player's draw and who he actually ends up playing in each round. There's these things called upsets that make a potentially tricker draw suddenly look much easier.

2nd half should have a lot of great matches. Extremely kind draw for Djokovic, especially coming back after a long layoff.

Berdych/Tipsarevic final.

They figured Djoker needed some light practice sessions via pushover opposition in order to get himself back in the groove. Good, he'll be in top form for the Final.

Murray has only a few guys on tour who are a bad match up for him, and Haase, Wawa and Tipsy are three of them. Really sucks for Robin, was hoping for a good tourney after his travails of late. Ho-ho-mo-fo.

Djokovic's draw is way to easy but irregardless I think Federer has got this. it's at home which is totally inspiring and the surface should work well enough for him

Not to mention Wawa is at home, but I'm not sure how much that will help him.

I know Donald is an underdog against Melzer, but a second round Fish match is good for American tennis and another top 10 barometer.

As for Melzer another of those live underdog matches he has to win if he wants a seed Down Under
