You heard it here first. Last year no Lendl. This year Lendl takes Murray to semi at AO12 and he played Djokovic even harder than Nadal did in the final. Murray will be a different beast at this year's FO. Will take Nadal out in 5 sets. Book it!

yeah, thanks for letting us know ... I'd give my life if Murray could beat Nudall at RG, but it ain't happening ... Djoko is the only one who can do it ... although, it would be so much fun if Fed def. Nudall at RG (that's not happening either, yeah I know, lol)

Murray has won Master's. Pointless for him to focus on those. His sole aim is a slam at all costs. I will leave this board if Murray loses to Nadal.

Well actually it is different because you have to slide into the shot on clay. Dirt is dirt. It's a whole different thing even to a very slow hardcourt. Different mechanics. A lot of sliding, etc. Need good footwork.

Istomin is in great form. He gave up as many games as Nadal in RD1

Funky Flo? Guy can beat anyone.

Milos "clay goat" Raonic? Nobody can touch his serve.

And if they don't beat him, Almagro will "Verdasco" Nadal in the quarters.


Look, Nadal is wearing pink shoes. Remember last time Nadal wore a pink shirt at RG? He can lose at anytime. Guy is ripe for the picking.

Sure sliding is different on clay, but I meant in terms of not needing to hit winners on clay and being able to out grind the opponent. Murray is capable of grinding with the best of them.

On a serious note, I have waited for a Murray-Nadal encounter since Tokyo last year but for some strange reason, the two just don't seem to be destined to meet ! They should have finally met in Miami but Nadal withdrew before the match .
Had Murray met Nadal in the AO semifinal, it would have been a great match though I think Nadal would have still pulled off a win. But in the SF against Djoker ,Murray put up as good a performance as Nadal did against Djoker in the final.

I had hoped for the season to be very interesting with Murray finally holding his own against the top guys at a slam. But since then , it is just unfortunate that he went off the boil and got injured . I still don't write off his chances completely like some people here are, but obviously, a lot has changed since the AO.

This year Lendl takes Murray to semi at AO12 and he played Djokovic even harder than Nadal did in the fina

That was the worst match I have seen on the ATP tour. Djokovic could barely stand up for two sets and Murray couldn't hit a winner. Once Djokovic recovered, so did Murray's winner count, but both players constantly lost their form.

We have been graced by the worst 5-setters in recent history. Isner-Mahut was a boring serve-fest. Murray-Djokovic had the lowest energy.

Murray has reached the final and semis of the last 5 slams!
That's amazing consistency but you have to look back at last years RG semi between Nadal and Murray.
Murray played exceptionally well the entire match and still lost in three sets. Fair enough the sets were all tight and Murray had a silly amount of break point chances, something like 18 without converting any so that would have made a big difference.
The point is Murray is going to have to play out of his skin the entire match just to have a chance.
That's a huge ask.

This isn't just an opinion folks, there is sound deductive reasoning behind this thread. The following is provided for your convenience.

Premise1:
The last time Djokovic played at the 2.0 level was before the AO12 semi.

Premise2:
Murray took him down a peg in their semi despite losing.

Premise3:
Any version of Nadal is not in the same league as Djokovic 2.0

Conclusion:
Murray will defeat Nadal at FO12

Impenetrable logic, unbreakable. I warn you not to try.

Murray beating Nadal at RG is possible but not probable.
Murray will do well to get to the semi finals never mind beat Nadal.
Remember Murray's not exactly playing great at the moment.
He's least on form out of the top 4 and carrying a niggling back inkury so, in fact, you're theory is empirically unsound.

Impossible. Murray will lose to Isner in the Quarters, before he even plays Nadal.

Isner has only managed to take one set off Murray in their only two meetings, both at Slams. If Murray is on form, Isner has no chance. However Murray's form is suspect at the moment. If that's the case if and when they meet, then he will probably have a chance to beat him. It really all depends on what form Murray happens to be in. Nadal, of course, is another matter.

To see Murray win his maiden Slam? And to win it at the FO of all places, on his worst surface, on which he has yet to win a title of any kind, beating Nadal, the Clay Court King, in order to do it would be an enormous hoot especially to his fans of which there are actually a few, believe it or not.

I'm a great Federer fan too (always have been) but I'm not really arsed if he beats Nadal at RG or not. It would be nice to see but he already has his FO title so it's not like he would be breaking any new ground. He's beaten Nadal in Slam finals before and beaten him on clay before. So what if he never does it at RG?

But each to his own of course!

Yep, if Murray reaches Ferrer (which in itself is unlikely) - I definitely see no way past Ferrer for him.

And Ferrer will be spanked by Nadal as usual.

Really, Nadal could be playing wheelchair tennis and win RG this year.
