Because we all know by now that he'll never win a Slam? He's like Henman. Perpetual semi finalist/runner up.

2 questions for you:

1. How many slam finals did Henman make during his career?

2. How many men who have made 3 or more slam finals have finished their career slamless?

Here's a clue for you - it's the same answer for both.

Murray does have a shot at the title, I just don't think he'll be able to beat Federer/Nadal/Djokovic (or any combination of the three) back to back. Del Potro has done it, so it is possible.

I'm a big Federer fan... but I just can't see it.
Matches with Djokovic and Haas were a disaster.
Haven't seen him playing that bad in a long time...

Terrible poll. Where is the option for Andy Murray?

Take the previous answer, and add one. Then you'll have a new answer. Can you do that?

I'm sorry - I don't speak Absolutist; perhaps in English? Question too difficult perhaps?

Looks like it. I'll give YOU a hint. The number you add to the answer of your previous questions represents Andrew Murray, who will not win a grand slam. If he does, I'll quite happily come on these forums and make a public appology for getting it wrong. I don't dislike Murray- I just don't think he has a slam in him. Btw, you need a new computer system.

Hold your fire, guys. They've ALREADY handed out Wimby trophy YESTERDAY.
(correction to myself) trophIES. Yes, 2. To Nadal and Novak. Yup, 2 co-champions. All the talk about Fed and all other players, non-sense. Just a big wishful thinking, what-if! Sorry for stopping your poll and debate, your poll, guys (red, embarrassed):oops:
Anyone up for debate about USO 12? Hope the trophy didn't get handed out yet?

Interesting poll results, as i think that Fed has the slimmest chance to win.

If all conditions remains the same like last year (court).. i give just a slight better chance to Rafa.

It really all depends on Novaks state of mind.. because his game on RG was pretty bad.

I think it should be a really interesting tournament! I reckon Djokovic, but Nadal wouldn't surprise me. I think if Fed's going to win another one, he needs to be ultra aggressive. He can't just rally with Nadal and Djoker these days. Would love him to pull it off though!

So - you don't want to answer the questions because a - you realise a comparison to Henman is inapt after all, b - that most of the 'will Murray win a slam' empirical indicators are pointing to a 'yes' and c - that therefore making absolutist predications isn't all that wise.

I do indeed need a new computer.

D) You're boring me now.

We'll see who's right at the end of his career.

I worry about Rafa in the first week when the courts are faster if he comes up against a really big server. The draw will tell us a lot.
Yes, there seem to be a few big guns out there, but Nadal is unlikely to meet one till the end of the first week. Roddick might have dropped far enough down to be in the mix.

Ah - bordeom. The universal internetz code for 'Bugger - I've poasted a load of @rsegravy and someone has called me on it".

I'm not saying you're wrong and that Murray will definitely win a slam. That would be as daft as saying he definitely won't.

I don't understand the obsession with the poll results. Most people vote based on whom they want to win and not because it's their prediction. If I really want someone to win how can I bring myself to vote for anyone else? Of course I personally don't vote on such polls but still.

Anyway, Roger's definitely not the favourite. And if he can lose to Haas in Halle he can lose to anyone at Wimbledon. Much will depend on the draw and whether Roger can use the early matches to sharpen his game. Most importantly, a lot depends on where his hip problems stand.

Your honesty is aprreciated, but people really should vote according to the question, in this case who they think will win, not who they want to win. Fair enough if there is another poll saying 'who do you want to win' and Federer wins that by a mile, but for that to happen in this poll is just crazy.

Forums can never be expected to be so rigid. There is no rule that says you can't vote the player you like. Most of the polls are emotion or prejudice-centric.

To me there's a pretty darn big difference between who many people think will win Wimbledon and who many people want to win Wimbledon, and I'm just saying it would be nice to have a poll with results that show who people honestly think is going to win. Unfortunately though, the vast majority of the time I just see Federer winning every poll.

Djokovic is my pick, probably to beat Nadal again. Federer is going to have a tough time winning any more GS events, but hey, he's won 16. Can Murray or Tsonga make the breakthrough? Doubtful.

Someone else.

Djokovic is not playing any tuneups.

Nadal sucked at queens.

Fed just lost to Haas and just cant mentally keep it together anymore.

I think it is prime time for someone else to sneak a GS title in.

When you really think about it it's logical to pick any of the top 4, even Murray. I went with Murray to win the Australian and he almost pulled the upset on Djoko! I think he has a chance this time.

LOL, OK.

I could see Murray making the final, if Novak or Rafa goes out early, but I think he'd lose the final to any of the top 3. They all have immense confidence against Murray, even Fed, who has won 5 of their last 7 meetings.

Other than Murray, who can realistically challenge Nadal/Djokovic/Fed in that arena? I just don't see a newcomer winning a Major for a while. I think the duopoly of Nadal/Djoker is here to stay for at least another year or two.

I would not be surprised if Berdych, Delpo, Isner, or even Raonic makes it to the final. Then all you need is a little luck or a bad day at the office and you have a new champion.

Isner already showed us this year a big serving opponent and an off day are enough to take out Djoko.

If Fed held it together long enough to even make the finals he would be very prone to having an "off" day and being upset.

Nadal, unless he steps up big time at Wimby he could be taken out by anybody.

:) I see what you did there.

Roger has also won 5 of their last 11 meetings (or 6 of their last 14 if you like), and they are 2-2 in finals since Murray entered the top 4).

Nadal is 3-0 (for the loss of only ONE set) vs Djokovic since the Australian Open (which Djokovic won 7-5 in the 5th set in 6 hours on Djokovic's favorite surface). 19-14, Nadal leads, and 6-3 at the slams.
Djokovic is 7-3 (for the loss of only ONE grand slam final) vs Nadal since 2011 Australian Open. Djokovic leads 3-2 at slam finals and Nadal just barely scrapes out a win on his favorite surface and preventing a fifth and decisive set!

I feel like 5 of 7 is a fair statement to make...It establishes a bit of a pattern. Am I wrong?

Murray won 6 of their first 8, Fed's won 5 of 7.

I'm not knocking Murray. I'd love to see him win Wimbledon. For Great Britain's sake alone.

5 of 7 is factually correct mate - I just thought you were being a bit selective ;)
