Nadal is still the favourite for RG, but what do you think by the current form of Djokovic, with his wrist injury, who is going to win RG if not Nadal?
I don't think that Djokovic could win RG, but I don't see anyone else.

I think there is two main option:
The one who beat him
The one who beat him, got knocked out by djokovic in the final (Federer way)
Or the same with Wawrinka but they will meet in the semis.
I would include Ferrer however i see no chance for that, Stan the man can beat him easily (based mostly on MC)

If Wawrinka beat Nadal i dont see Djokovic beat wawrinka, but if Ferrer beat Nadal i dont see him beating Wawrinka or Djokovic.

Share your thoughts
PS: Before someone say I am overhyping Wawrinka i dont think he will win, I only cant see any other realisticfavourites for RG.

Odd to hear Murray, I dont expect him to be 100% before grass or hard season. Maybe with his new coach he can comeback earlier, but I just don't se that happening so I didn't include him in the votes.

Giraldo is the obvious favourite, but I really believe that King Oscar will make his late career surge and take the crown this year

Berdych is definitely ahead of both of them. Bookies have Fognini priced around the same as Tsonga but neither are real contenders. Nishikori has absolutely no chance, be serious.

IMO, 'in form' Tsonga is better than Berdych on clay. The problem is I can't remember last time Tsonga was 'in form' and don't expect him to go too far at RG this year :rain:.

On the other hand, do we really need another thread about this?
