murrey cannot be the no.1 seed over federer- fed has one 2 of the last 3 majors and lost in the final at aus. unquestionably fed is 1 seed.
murrey also cannot be in the same half of the draw as they are 1 and 2 seeds coming in.
if federer plays his A or B game no one has a chance- with nadal out, that also includes murrey. but i wonder how motivated fed will be now that he is statistically the greatest player and with nothing else to prove. if fed brings his c game murrey can possibly beat him. remember this is grass, federers best surface.
Yup Fed is like Rafa on clay I agree, I guess given what happened in RG anything can happen here as well. Also, Murray has had a winning record against Fed. But you've made very good points, let's just see which Federer comes to play and what his mentality will be if he actually gets to play Murray.
soderling seems like a pretty cool guy. i hope he doesnt upset fed this time around. his speech at FO was pretty funny, "no one can beat me 10 times in a row", fed then defeats him, "ok next time nobody beats me 11 times in a row." good stuff from him.
now i hope he lets fed win the 11th, please fed promise him the 12th time.
Murray won the Queens cup last week without dropping a single set in the tournament...
yup, there you go.
I said that because in 2003, he lost only 1 set.
in 2004: 2 ; 2005:1 ; and in 2006: 1. (Not sure bout these).
We all know what happened after that.
Now that there's no Nadal, I can't see anyone really threatening him on his own surface.
Djokovic, Murray, Roddick and maybe Karlovic (if he serves well) can take a set.
