no doubts Murray is a little favorite than Federer to win the AO. How
would anybody know if Federer is keeping his best for slams or not, we
can judge by results only.

But it's not limited to these two, there are many other players like
Nadal, Djokovic, Simon, etc that can cause a major upset in any day.

I think Federer wants to repeat his good days again and he will be
very focused from the begining.

there seems to be more Danger Men for Murray than Roger, though. In
addition to your three, there's Tsonga, Del Potro. last time Murray
played these guys he had trouble. last time Roger played them he had
none.

Not sure how a 1-1 H2H vs Tsonga marks him out as a 'danger'. Murray has
improved dramatically since they last met, Tsonga has not. As for Del Potro,
Murray has won both their previous meetings.

And Murray only lost to Tsonga last year because he fell asleep during that
tiebreak.

Who wouldn't want to have a repeat of Federer's good days?

The question is whether he can summon his best when the big moments arrive.

The question is will that be good enough?

Oh sorry I'm talking to a Fedfucker.
