Who, besides Nole, can stop Nadal from winning RG 2012?

I wouldn't bet against him.
I can't imagine any sane person would.

Andy (not Roddick) has taken the first step on the journey to winning a slam.  He still has some work to do.  Hopefully Lendl can coax even more from the talented Scot.


basically nadal cant be stopped at RG this year or the next. i think we should all have learned that by now.

@sid
murray's game hasn't changed that much but he is definitely showing a lot of improvement in his attitude........to me that was the biggest improvement........lendl must have literally told him to just shut all ends up and pay respect to the audiences and his box rather than swearing at them for every error he makes.......i think lendl has succeeded in his first assignment which was to remodel murray's outlook and attitude on a tennis court in crunch matches.......it will be interesting to see how he prepares murray for clay.......

Hi Shank,Djokovic has improved immeasurably over the last 12 months and here was evidence that Murray has the ability to do the same. Stepping up the court,hitting with depth and purpose,
going for the lines on massive points.In the decider set Murray was 5-2 down & we all know what happened.Re watch & look more @ Murray's FH now.

I really like Murray's attitude on the court now.
I wouldn't underestimate Murray, he showed some real fight and should get better because of that kind of mental strength.

swish, I do agree with you. I really think that Murray is getting closer....I mean sure it's not going to be easy but he did mature as a player big time...I think he is ready to win his first slam  :)

I don't think Herc can afford PBR and Hamms. :(

Consequently his 'muscle' is not as developed as this. ;-()
