    This could be construed a couple of ways.

    :)


    For some reason I'm feeling Andy Murray to win it this year.

    Federer won't be the top seed, so the order should be changed.

    Why bother submitting a poll? At least 3/4 of the votes are bound to go to Federer, it doesn't really mean anything.

    Shared the same lift as Tipsy when he was in Asia for a promotional tour recently a friend standing next to him mentioned he had a sexy pic of his missus on his iPhone. Shame it wasn't me that saw it. :twisted:

    I voted for DelPo before seeing Tipsy's wife. :(

    DelPo will have a tough time, he has problems with Fed, Murray and Djokovic so he'll have to be at his best.

    But he's my player so I'll take my chances. :)

    Who doesnt have "problems" with those players? I mean afterall, they are better than the rest.

    Delpo aint even close being one of the favorites, there is players who have more skill than him.

    It depends on 'the day' performance of all those players and whether DelPo can get into a good groove.

    He looks to be very accurate of late and can get a little better still.

    Yeah, though he has only won one match vs Murray, a lot of them have been close. He could also take out Fed on his day, maybe even Djokovic.

    If he gets this group it could be good

    Federer
    Ferrer
    Del Potro
    Tipsarevic

    The other group would be

    Djokovic
    Murray
    Berdych
    Tsonga

    He might only need one great win over a top 3 player to make the final. But I doubt the group will be like this.

    Pumped for this - first tennis I'll be watching live. Apparently the champion always opens - I've got tickets to the first session so assume this means I'm guaranteed Fedarah?

    I will go out on a limb and bet my money on Ferrer winning the WTF after going on a Davydenko 2009 like run :) My next choice is Berdych or Tsonga.

    I don't see Fed winning this at all. Delpo may come into the tournament high on confidence, but will probably feel a bit in his legs. Could be a potential finalist. Don't know in what shape Djoko and Murray will show up. Somehow don't see either of them taking this.

    As a Federer Fan, I realisticaly voted "Djokovic", cause I really don't think the Maestro will go to the Final (maybe even not the semis because of the bad way he's playing since USO, and his losses against Berdych, Murray, DelPo)
    ...And I was quite surprised that just a few people choose Djoko as the winner !!! (and Federer surprisingly leading the poll, by the way).

    Do you really think Djokovic has no chances to win it ???
    For me it's currently the best player, and he seems in better form than Murray (which had a back issue last week)

    Only on TT can Fed be the favorite for the WTF and be finished at the same time

    Though WTF is pretty important, I have to admit that this is the most boring stretch of the season. There is always much more excitement/drama from the stretch of Indian Wells to Rome than from Tokyo/Beijing to WTF. That partly has to do with player participation and effort, which makes me wonder if WTF should be valued a full 1500 points.

    I have a feeling it could be Murray. If not him Djokovic, and Del Potro is my 3rd choice. Federer is the only other one who could win it. Couldnt imagine Berdych, Tsonga, Ferrer, or Tipsarevic doing it.

    That's based on the order of GOATness. So it's right. Also fitting that Rafa isn't there

    Surprisingly little love for Murray given he beat both Fed & NoDjo recently on hard and has shown he has every chance against either.

    That and the O2 will be home-crowdin' it.

    Apparently the OG/USO Murray factor means that ticket sales are already at record levels.

    No surprise there. All you have to do is look here to see how many sessions (8 of 15) are sold out.

    Federer having a week off before a tournament is a good sign generally. He of all people generally bounces back from clangers (like his week in Basel) with excellent form. He's done it time and time again previously,... wonder how much he can do in this week off?

    I also think that that's Troicki's girl. Suncica Travica.

    This is Biljana Tipsarevic

    Q. A lot of players at this time of the year are saying they are tired. This year there hasn't been the week's gap between Bercy and here. Are you feeling tired or are you feeling fresh?
    JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: You know, during the season, I never feel really fresh. I mean, we play a lot, especially these guys who win tournaments. They play a lot. So we feel like it's our job. We try to stay focused on what we have to do, and that's it.
    Sometimes the worst thing for us is to complain about it. Yeah, we just have to do our job.

    Nadal can learn from Tsonga.

    Well Said Tsonga.
