who's getting isner's wild card, you guys weren't too happy with him anyway

I think it's too late to re-assign wildcards: most of the candidates who didn't make it will already be in the Qualies draw. Maybe a Lucky Loser?

I do pray and hope that Nole is in the other half  ://

I heard that Ancic and Isner are out...

And what other half would that be?

Well I don't care who is in Roger's half as long as he gets to the final again.  You have to beat whoever is on your draw...

LOL....Nadal is a heavy favorite at RG.  Falcon is insecure about Nole playing Rafa.

Not really.  She actually wants a Nole vs Nadal final.

:rofl_2: :rofl_2:  rafa has never been stretched to 5 sets on RG...I want it to be a Nole-Rafa final so that we can have a better final than the damp squib we had last year.  :rofl_2:

we all know Rafa and Nole will be in the same half of the draw. it's obious, mark my words when the draw will be out in less than 9 hours.
KS, it's a conpiracy theory!  :)~

You know what's going to look really funny and fishy? If Nole is in Rafa's half at the FO but then Murray is in Rafa's half at Wimbledon...  Since Nole is considered a bigger threat than Murray at the FO but for some reason Murray is considered the bigger threat at Wimbledon. People are going to start thinking tennis is as corrupt as football.....

Murray is not a bigger thread at W than Nole and that's not me being biased against him for a change. Murray's never won a grass title, never made a final, never even made a semi. Regardless of this being his home slam, I rate Djokovic's chances above Murray's.

yeah Murray might have the crowd support but that might be a bunch of extra pressure when like you said, he hasn't won titles on grass yet. I think both are very close though when it comes to grass and it would be very interesting if they were to meet at a tourney before Wimby to put most speculation to rest.

They won't meet at a grass tournament before Wimbledon (at least this year) since Djoker is scheduled to play in Halle with Federer and Murray is scheduled for Queens Club as usual.
