You can play with numbers in many different ways!
An argument can be made that Djokovic has the best of the above
numbers.

What would be better 12/9 or 10/1 ???

It was funny how everyone underestimated Nadal's chances at the end of
last year. It was clear that he had put a herculian effort to get #1,
basically playing non-stop since the clay season. He just toned down
the intensity once that objective was reached...

And now people are writing Murray off too quickly. One sort-of-bad
loss against a red-hot Versdasco and
now he's not a clutch player, doesn't belong with the top 2, etc.

I agree he's got a lot to prove, but I won't be the least surprised
when he bounces back quickly from this and
shows he's got just as much, if not more, game than anyone.

Maybe if he survives Verdasco he goes on to win the tournament? We'll
never know but the rest of this year will let us see just how dominant
Nadal is going to be over Murray.
