    Nadal just lost. Murray looks in fine touch right now. Maybe, just maybe, if he meets nolee in the final may be able to do that!

    AO he should have beat nole, with the crowd on his side he could def win this tournament, he is playing better than Fed for sure.

    Fed doesn't need to play well to beat Murray.

    Neither does Djokovic for that matter. See this year's AO for proof on that.

    When he doesn't have to face a previous slam winner in a final. Djokovic and Fed are still around..

    Murray and slam finals just don't go together.. To much pressure for the guy. Every slam final he has been in he's played like Dog turd.


    I could definitely see him in the finals.. Never winning it all though.. Especially if Fed or Djoker are there. Which is a shame because he does have the game to beat both

    He's not coming in in the best of form, though. He has a better shot now than he did before, but Federer and Djokovic would still be favorites against him in the final if it came to that, and there are plenty of big hitters that might take him out earlier.

    Baghdatis is a Slam finalist though he's hasn't been in form for a while, Cilic has upset Murray in a slam before, Ferrer just beat Murray a few weeks ago in Paris, and Tsonga can be absolutely deadly when he's on.

    It's a good chance, but only if he brings his best tennis.

    He will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and disappoint an entire nation once again who will then suddenly remember that he is after all a bloody Scot so sod him!

    Murray would have won 2010 Wimbledon had Nadal lost early against Petzy.

    Berdych in the final would be easy cooking.


    This Murray best opputinity to reach the Wimbledon final.....Djokerer won't be easy to beat in the Final.

    I think it would be terrible if he would reach the final and lose. He cried when he lost in Australia and this is a much more important tournament for him.

    the chances of murray even reaching the final aren't that high..delpo or roddick may take him out..if he faces delpo especially he is in trouble..i feel this is a chance for delpo to win his 2nd slam more than andy..delpo matches up well against djoker but if federer reaches the final he'll struggle

    Murray is 5-1 against Delpo and has much more pedigree on grass. I think Delpo would really struggle with Andy's slice on grass. Djoko is 4-1 against Delpo and the only loss came as a retirement. I think more than anyone, Tsonga is to be feared on Murray's side. The guy has a game tailor made for grass.
