Ferrer and Murray may very well strangle the life out of Nadal, so that even if he does go through to the final, he will be wrecked.  And it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that Ferrer/Murray could beat him.

Disappointing for Fed to lose, but given the miles on the clock and age, it is to be expected.  He also clearly had no desire to play this boring defensive grind.

Also, you guys should review your picks in light of the scoring system (especially jokers).

So Djoko gets 27?

In that case it's easy:

My Joker will also be on the Djoker
Shara
Djoko Joker
Bouchard
Berdych

EDIT - I deleted your previous pick to make it clearer for those adding up the numbers. T

Women's matches will be interesting, though.
Sharapova looks so determined and the young Muguroza has a fast and sharp FH.
Bouchard is similar to Muguroza, but Navarro can really play well on clay, wonderful SBH.

Ok, quick choices here and back to work. Big Grin

1. I go with Muguruza here who I saw in a few points vs. Serena Williams where she looked pretty good. Didn't see much of Sharapova, cannot stand her screaming!
2. Novak Djokovic, that's a no-brainer like Nadal yesterday  Big Grin, he'll also be my Djoker
3. Haven't seen either of these girls, put my trust in Bouchard
4. Another toss-up, but I want Gulbis to take it home.

Shame from Navarro surrendering a 5/2 lead to Bouchard.

For once I am supporting the 2 Spaniards here. Navaro looks like Quasimodo a bit but a great game.

Annoying how the French crowd are very partial. They do behave during points which is good but they are too vociferous when there is a French player or someone sounding French like Bouchard!

I nearly changed my pick this morning when I realised they were playing on Lenglen. He is a faster mover than Berd and that court is a big advantage for him today as it's dry and sunny.
If they played on Chatrier, then Berd would've been the favourite.

I hope Gulbis can keep it up.....a nicer player to watch.

From what I have seen, I think Djoko and Nadal might lose regularly to Rao in 12 months time (in B03 at least). I should add that in the prediction thread.

I'm glad Noke is serving first...makes a big difference towards the end of the set.
So tough to play relaxed against a super-server.

Close match again between those 2...but Djoko breaks away: 2 sets to oeuf.

Berdych can't handle pace. It's about time he gives his space in the top 10 to the new better players.

It was close! Would 23yo Djoko have won that one? I doubt it.

I want Nadal out asap so I can freely support Gulbis!

It's tough to support a player I would not normally support...just cause nadal is in the equation.!

What Gulbis is doing now is the sum of talent, confidence and fun. That makes a very dangerous player.
