Federer is usually who I root for, but I just don't see how he can win this. He spent a lot of energy during the 1st week, conditions definitely don't favor him, so even the prospect of a SF match with Djokovic is scary. Should he pull it off by some miracle, there's a good chance Nadal will make the final, will he have any juice left?

So for the reasons above, I'm rooting for the other swiss...Stan The Man. I think the conditions favor Wawrinka's game a lot more than Federer. I also like to think he'd fare better against Djokovic

If djokovic could find it in his heart to just give up the cringe "face" persona, and embrace the "heel" that he naturally is, I'd be barracking for him.

Zverev would be great. Sandgren too.

Though anyone but the mutant.

If you know what i mean :-D :alien::happydevil::unsure:
I was aware that Nadal is OCD. But your list appears to indicate that he also suffers from a Multiple Personality Disorder.

If Rafa vs Rafa in the final, who wins? Neither, I suspect. A Nadal divided against itself cannot stand (& shall surely perish).
