Round 1 to round 4 weren't exactly challenging, yeah.

But starting from the QF:

Rafa - king of clay, although not in top form but it's still RG and Bo5 and Novak had a 0-6 record and hasn't beaten him in a GS since AO 2012 if I'm not mistaken. You guys know the rest of details.

Murray - running high on clay winning streak, fresh (relatively, compared to last year plus he didn't play much in Rome). He is currently 0-7 versus Novak but you just know that he will squeeze out a win sooner or later, his team will figure something out.

Tsonga/Stan - final, two players completely capable of winning slams and who play some unbelievable tennis when hot. Tsonga, reaching the final, would have the whole crowd with him.

Wawrinka, when he goes deep then he's probably playing good, really good. He's given Novak trouble over the years whenever they met at GS's.

Not to mention the pressure, CGS etc all riding on Nole's mind to finally get his first crown. So what do you think, compared to all the years since 2011, is this the most difficult RG for him to win? On paper at least?

If he somehow manages to beat peak Clayray, he'll have to beat his poor matchup in Wawrinka. I don't see it happening.

Murray has been very shaky this RG and has shown some severe mental lapse. Djokovic surprisingly hasn't shown that many of those and still hasn't dropped a set.

Wawrinka/Tsonga can either come out playing like beasts or play like erratic mugs. Tsonga is more prone to going mentally AWOL like in the Nishikori match as he nearly let him back in all the way.

We'll see tomorrow if Djokovic beats Clayray

Clayray is unbeatable on clay. He will beat Djokervic tomorrow. Then we will wait for the excuses. From chokers fans.
