Fair enough. I still place Murray very high on any list of favorites.
And I'd probably say Djokovic is "fourth favorite", although that sort
of thing has always struck me as kind of dumb.

Yes, they probably should. Can't recall any good ever coming of it.

That, I just disagree with. The top four seem to me to be far ahead of
the field, at this point in time.

Perfectly calm and normal response.

Djokovic may not be my favorite player but I agree with him. The
interviewer is an idiot and a jerk for trying to get a rise out of
him. Federer explained that the slams are different and it is not
smart to make slam predictions from lesser tournaments. Federer, Nadal
and Djokovic are all slam winners. They have shown that they have what
it takes to win a slam. Until now, Murray has not. If the players were
smart, they would make it a rule not to answer questions about other
players.
We will have all the answers in less than two weeks. Has it occurred
to any of the pundits (all morons) that the winner could be someone
other than these four? You heard it her first folks :)

++ Well... it's a natural reaction for a guy who is the defending
champion, who did make his break through at slams already, who's
competitive and who's rounding into the kind of form that could make
him a legit threat, right there with Rafa and Roger... perfectly
understandable reaction of a guy in the mix at 21/22-ish...
