    Which matchup do you really want to see in the coming months? I personally would love to see Federer Murray at Wimbledon.

    Yes this is the most interesting matchup by far I think. After that I wouldn't mind seeing another Murray/Nadal on grass or a Nadal/Tsonga on grass and T1000's federer/dimitrov on grass would be interesting as well.

    Fed - Rafa. They're head and shoulders above everyone else. And both won't last - so let's get as much as we can. I think it would be great if they were the finalists at all 4 majors.

    personally i think that would be ****, the wimbledon 2008 final was overrated, and the 2007 final was much better, not bcuz federer won, but the quality was better



    i want to watch a roddick - nadal semi at wimbledon, with roddick with a fine shoulder this time

    Djokovic vs either Fed or Nadal at the French, just to see if he can break through.

    Fed Nadal is always intresting but Fed Murray at Wimbledon would be so intriging because.

    A). Murray has gotten the best of Fed so far
    B). Its probably Fed's best surface and Murray's medium surface so it would be competitive
    C). Its on Feds favourite court and Murray's home court.

    Any match between two of Djokovic, Nadal and Murray. They are the best players ATM and the future of man's tennis. It would be great is those three share final spots for remaining GS and most of Masters tournaments.

    The one thing I don't want to see is more easy draws, scheduling and other advantages for Federer (and Roddick as well in some cases), from tournament organizers.

    Agree 100% with all of this, and I'd also add:

    D). The magnitude of the occasion - Murray would be looking to be the first British finalist since Sir Fred. Murray making the final would be the biggest thing to happen to British sport on British soil since England won the World Cup in 1966. I cannot begin to comprehend the media hype if Murray v Roger were to happen.

    Nah Federer is a horrible match up for Tsonga, Tsonga v Nadal or Tsonga v Murray would be better.

    I agree, if he makes the final the british media will go crazy.

    And if he somehow wins it.. the pressure next year would be immense.

    I don't think there would be any added pressure to Murray should he win "W".....it would be like the Red Sox fans....the British would be so thrilled that if he won anymore, it would be gravy...

    Nadal Vs Federer, all the way until either one retires. I'd prefer they meet in slam finals.

    They produce mersmerizing tennis almost every time they square off in a slam final.

    Bellucci (Thomaz, not Monica) vs Nadal in RG. Unfortunately the brazilian in currently in a very poor shape; let's see if he'll be able to at least win his 1st match there.

    That too would be a great matchup - seems a very distant possibility though.

    Either one will do...although I wouldn't be surprise to hear of Serena having an injury or something that causes her to lose...

    Roodick V nadal RG finals

    finally we can see who really is the better clay court player

    on recent form i have to give Andy the edge, that and his amazing reflexes, and his killer backhand

    Andy also has the Serve which will win him plenty of free points
