Looks like Djokovic is causing a typhoon here. Where is he gonna be put? :whistle: That doesn't matter at all. Look, the same scenario occured last year. Djokovic was on the verge of beating Nadal at Hamburg and on edge of the number two ranking and he almost did it. Everyone said it was close and maybe the next time he'll beat him.
They were drawn together in Paris and we all expected a tough encounter like Hamburg. Instead Nadal won in straight. So lets forget where he's going to drop.

And guys here are underestimating Murray. Mind you there's only about 1000 points difference between Federer and Murray and Murray went out last year in the early stages so there's a lot of points he can collect.

Murray can even think of the number 1 spot. Yeah imagine Nadal loosing first round or more realisic he had to retire. He'll lose 2000 points bringing him to 12000 and also imagine Murray winning the French Open and gains 2000 points adding to his total to get 11000 points. So Murray starts big thinking.
Maybe all what I've written is rubbish. Sorry for taking your time. ;-()

It does show the #1 ranking must be guarded constantly or can be lost.

It’s safe to say the two best players on clay behind Nadal are Nole and Roger.  Since Nadal and Roger will be on the opposite side of the draw, I don’t think neither of them(and their fans) want Nole to be on their side.

I have a feeling if Nole ends up in Rafa half again, some of his fans will say the organizers favors Roger and want to see him in the final again.  It’s all about money driven b/c Nadal/Roger final attracts the most viewers.

People were previously complaining that Murray was always on Nadal's side.  Regardless of how things pan out, fans of all players will find ample reasons to complain into the void of the internet, because they can. 

On that note, if Rainer Schüttler is on Federer's side I am going to be pissed. 

Hi Cowboy,this year Murray been in Nadals side more than Feds.However the draw goes someone will have to beat Nadal to lift RG,tall order that will be for anyone.Both Murray & Djokovic will want 2 be in Feds side,more chance of beating Roger than Nadal.

I would give Nole a good chance on clay maybe fav @ RG.Grass,then i think Roger is better & becomes fav.Murray might end up in same half yet.If im 2 pick Murray in Rogers half then it wimby of the 2 slams.

A lot of people make it Nadal, Nole then Fed @RG.
I just figured Fed will continue to fine tune his serve and bring the percentage up some.
I can't really argue against Nole, he is really dangerous.
Looks like Nole has been working on his fitness, we'll see in the 5 setters @RG.


At Wimby it's Fed then Nadal. The others are somewhat behind.

Self-praise is for losers. Be a winner. Stand for something. Always have class, and be humble.

Qualifying Day 1: Tuesday, 19 May
 Paolo Lorenzi ITA d Guillermo Canas ARG (5) 64 76(7)  
Jean-Rene Lisnard MON d Frank Dancevic CAN (7) 76(2) 64     
Jiri Vanek CZE d Jonathan Eysseric FRA 62 61       
 Sebastian Decoud ARG  d Jesse Levine USA (28) 16  63 108     
 Santiago Ventura ESP (14) d Michael Russell USA 60 63       
 Mathieu Montcourt FRA (17) d Brendan Evans USA 67(6) 62 62     
 

Some interesting results...
Certainly the Canas and Dancevic results are disappointing to say the least. Good win for Delic.
