For the next 6 months who would you rather NOT see on your side of the
draw if you are Roger and Rafa:

Murray, Verdasco, Simon or Tsonga?

Djokovic is not a late bloomer. He launched at age 20 years, 3 mos.,
which is quite normal.

++ Djokovic... can't forget him... no question he's going to get it
together again and make a run(s) for big titles Masters and slams... I
wonder about the talk about him being a big party guy though... likes
the late nights with the ladies at the clubs...

++ Potentially, it was always Rafa who had the difficult draw at the
AO this year... and yet he made it through to the final having to only
beat an in form Verdasco... sooooo... hard to say how things will work
out...

++ Ya, Simon is tricky and has a LOT of 'those days' when he seems to
hit every line he aims for...

Murray or Djokovic. I still think Djokovic is a great player, just a
late bloomer.

Hard to say..

Verdasco played IMO better than i have seen from any of these players
but can he keep it up ?

Id prob choose Murray in the sense hes very good now at being that guy
who can beat you if your game isnt 100 % there , but not so good as
histroy shows when his oppnenets games are on heat.

Im not sure Murray is capable of winning a slam without a very
favourable draw , its bit like how Roddick over the yrs hung in there
but inevitably got beaten by somoene if not Roger whose best was too
good for him.

Tsonga injuries woo mean more often than not he wont play to full
capacity and Simon is bit like Murray - purely because he doesnt have
any big weapons.

Notice how Murray, Verdasco, Simon and Tsonga were all in Rafas half
of draw at the AO. And now look who had the harder draw.

That's pretty meaningless, he only played one of them. If he'd had to
play all four then it would have been a tough draw.

Sorry, my mistake. He played two of them.

I still have to go for Murray here. After all he was beaten by Verdasco
in perfect shape in a tough 5 setter. He is still the man to beat apart
from Nadal and Federer. After Murray I would go for Verdasco. Simon will
not be able to follow up this year, he is no top 10 player IMO.

PS.

I will go with Murray, Tsonga and Verdasco ( if he can maintain his current
form).
Simon to me is the new Schuettler and he will have some steady result but he
won't
be a factor in the slams. Tsonga although lost in the QF but I think he
has matured
quite a bit in his game and he is still on a upward swing. I expect both
Murray and
Tsonga will overtake Djokovic in the ranking by year end.

Murray and Simon.
