Since all the Nadal fans marvel at the current competition (and why wouldn't they since Nadal is winning majors? - let's make them more worthy!), let me prove you that not only is the current field not tough, it's one of the weakest ever. Let's look at the semi-final line-up for the biggest 7 tournaments played thus far. Australian Open semis - Federer, Djokovic, Murray + Ferrer who beat Nadal French Open semis - Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Nadal Indian Wells - Federer, Nadal, Djokovic in the semis Miami - Federer Nadal Djokovic in the semis Monte Carlo - Nadal Murray in the semis, Djokovic didn't play Rome - Nadal, Djokovic, Murray in the semis Madrid - Nadal, Federer, Djokovic in the semis So out of 28 semi slots in the 7 biggest tournaments this year we had Federer,Nadal,Djokovic,Murray playing in 21 of them (and would've been 22 if Djokovic played in Monte Carlo) and 7 out of 8 in Slams (and if Nadal beat Ferrer in Australia it would've been a shocking 8 out of 8 ) That's insane. This also proves my point since there is absolutely no-one (and too few up and coming players like Raonic and Harrison - who aren't even halfway) challenging the top 4 for any big tournament. To further prove my point - I'm predicting all the top 4 players to play in the quarter-finals and at least 3 of them making the semi-finals at Wimbledon. For those Nadal fans who want to point out that also Federer is a part of this weak field - I agree 100%. If you take out both Nadal and Djokovic, Federer goes unchallenged in Slams for the next year at least. The reason is simple - there is no-one who can beat him. Even Andy Murray who is a part of the "big 4" can't take a set off a 29-year old Federer when it really matters. So if you take the top 2 out who's going to beat him? FERRER? ALMAGRO? FISH? Don't make me laugh.
