You think all those guys are safe to beat Murray. Pleeeese. Gasquet hasnt beaten him in a slam since atleast 2007 now, if he ever did that is. Del Potro hasnt beaten a top player in a slam since 2009, and is clearly not fit enough to do so, especialy on a slower court. He also has a godawful bad record vs Murray, which doesnt improve significantly on clay like it does for Ferrer. Almagro as already noted is a huge choking dog so is definitely 110% not going to close a match out vs a top 4 player like Murray at Roland Garros, even from a winning position.

Eliminate Monaco, Almagro, and Gasquet from your list altogether, and move Del Potro to a maybe along with Wawrinka (being generous) and maybe that makes sense. Maybe be generous and give Gasquet a maybe, only since he seems to be making strides this year. RG is not his best slam or surface, but it is the only one he might ever beat Murray again at.
