    Wimbledon - Reed: Murray will go all the way
    Eurosport - Sun, 21 Jun 08:19:00 2009
    Eurosport commentator Simon Reed has installed Britain's Andy Murray as his favourite to win Wimbledon.

    Federer rues Nadal absence
    Wimbledon men's draw
    I don't want to pile any more pressure on Andy Murray, but looking at the draw I have to make him favourite to win Wimbledon.
    He has got a dream draw, and he is now the top seed in his half following Rafael Nadal's withdrawal.
    Nadal's decision was almost inevitable, considering what went on at Roland Garros and in his exhibition matches at Hurlingham.
    His team were hoping against hope his knee would be alright, but I was taking him out of the equation anyway - even if he had played he would not have been at 100 per cent.
    Murray has got a clear run through the first three rounds, no problem. It is only in the last 16 that it starts to get tough, against either Stanislas Warwinka or Marat Safin, who can be formidable if he gets his head right.
    After that, the top seeded player he could face in the quarter-finals is Gilles Simon, but I don't think it will be him. More likely is Fernando Gonzalez, who got the better of him at Roland Garros, but I don't think he can live with Andy on grass.
    The semi-final is more of a stumbling block. It is likely to be Andy Roddick, who is always a tough customer at Wimbledon. It could also be Juan Martin del Petro, who would be the highest seed in his quarter of the draw by that stage and is a tricky opponent. Again, I don't see Andy losing to either of those. He's too good.
    That leaves Roger Federer in the final. Andy lost to him in last year's US Open final, but that was by far Federer's best match of 2008.
    Since then, he has not been at that level, even at the French Open which he won. I don't think Federer's the player he was, and I see Andy beating him.
    People have said it might be easier for Federer now he has got the monkey off his back, finally winning the French.
    The theory is his frame of mind is better, he will play with freedom and return to the Federer of old. I need to see that before I think he's got any chance against Murray.
    There is no doubt the pressure will be immense, and match by match it will reach almost unimaginable levels. It would freak most people out, but I don't think it will affect Andy at all.
    The danger is that he could put pressure on himself because he's not producing the goods, he doesn't feel right or just isn't playing good tennis.
    There is probably going to be a match like that, it could be against anyone, and that is when he's going to be under pressure.
    Andy has struggled in the past against players he is expected to beat so that might be one of the pitfalls of a relatively straightforward draw.
    I don't think he ever underestimates his opponent, but he does get very frustrated with his own play. He's much better than he was at coping with that, and I think he can pull through especially in a five-set match. There is time for him to lift himself if he gets down.
    All in all, the signs for Murray are very optimistic.

    Everyone's free to their opinion, it's not like federer's guaranteed to win.

    Yes, because we must all hold the same narrow minded view that federer's guaranteed to win and anyone that says otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about.:roll:

    I know mate, but then again even Fed himself said that grand slams are a different animal, which is proven to be right according to both Murrays/Feds recent GS results.

    Hey, I agree, I wasn't meaning federer will have no chance, I was meaning that we should'nt just say "haha, someone who thinks federer can't win" when someone says they think murray can win it.

    The guy who wrote it did go abit overboard with federer having "no chance", but realistically its not laughable to say murray can win against him in the final.:)

    What is so stupid about that? Murray is clearly atleast the 2nd favorite to only Federer now. Does anyone really think Djokovic, Roddick, Del Potro, or any of the French players have a better shot than him at this years Wimbledon? If so you are the crazy ones.

    i think someone said this the other day, but if every tom-dick-and-harry on this board is allowed to make their oh-so brilliant predictions (regardless of how many failed predictions they have had in the past) about who they think is gonna win a tournament . . . then surely people that are actually getting paid to cover tennis can make their stupid predictions, too.

    What evidence do you have?

    Firstly djokovic, lost to haas in halle final. Fair enough haas playing well, but federer would have played better, therefore how does he have a chance against fed?

    Del potro, only won 8 matches on grass, lost 5. 2 -2 record at wimbledon not going further than 2nd round. Height makes him questionable as a good grass player.

    Roddick, playing better than ever but is a poor match-up to federer and has a terrible record against him.

    maybe i misspoke...i didnt mean they have a better chance against fed, i meant
    that imo, they have a better chance against murray...i.e. if murray were to play any of these 3, i would pick them.

    Then you are the one who is delusional if you really believe that, not Reed. A totally out of form Djokovic who Murray has dominated for almost a year now, Roddick who was owned by teenage pre-prime Murray and whose slam winning days are clearly over, and Del Potro who sucks on grass, all have better chances than Murray!?! Dream on. I am not even a Murray fan but I am not blind to reality.

    Simon reed is an idiot, but idiots are totally entitled to their opinion, I just don't value it.

    Short memory Simon. Name me one better match Federer EVER played than the one against Del Potro at AO. His Soderling match at RG, his Nadal match at Madrid, they were just as good as that Murray match. He played great there, but those journalists should watch less tennis because all they talk about is ****ed up h2h's which were made in Master series and other small events nobody in 'the real world' really cares about. Mr Reed should realise that a fivetime Champion ALWAYS stands a chance, wherever, whoever he plays. It's fine to think Murray can win it, so do I.. but saying Fed needs to show things before Reed believes he "stands a chance"(!!!) is ridiculous.

    I guess it sells in the UK

    None of us here on this forum would have a chance to win a game against Murray, that's for sure. But to say that Fed has no chance against him is ridiculous. i would say most players in the top 50 have at least some chance against Murray, even though small. Otherwise why not just give Murray the title before the whole thing starts?

    Your saying no players in the top 50 have any chance against Federer?

    Remember Haas and Acasuso at the French?

    you make me chuckle.
