I can hardly wait. IMHO, unless Nole and Rafa decide to tank matches for whatever reason, we'll keep seeing them playing  lots of finals. I really think they are creating history (as I said before)...

i don't see anybody in any form taking them out if they just play their best......we might get to see 4 or 5 finals between them from indian wells to french open.......it's great for the game.......one is only 24 and the other is only 25 and they have already each other 30 times or something.......this might go down as the greatest rivalry ever.......

Sid, it will happen. Murray is a great player. I really want him to win his first major. As I told ya, he is my second favorite player right now (I gave up on Gasquet unfortunately  :(). I love his personality. Andy is a such a passionate guy. and you know what, he did give a hell of a time to Nole at the AO. yes, he lost but it was an amazing effort. Murray has improved so much... sure Nole is a little monster right now but tennis is a tricky sport. you just never know.

Hi Alex,thanks on that @ AO,I've watched this SF over & over again.What a lot of people miss in this match is,on the way to the SF's both Nole & Andy had only lost one set each,so both tennis players were as fresh as can be.So for Nole to win in the Final in 5 sets was Amazing after his match with Murray.Nadal did not have a hard match like Nole did & Nole still beat him with that days less rest.Nole is the man to beat ATM thats for sure,Ivan lendl in Murray's corner should help him get his dream.Nole & Nadal will be the one's to beat @ RG & it would not shock me if either won here,but with lendl in Murray's corner,i give Murray a bigger chance than before.Lendl was a good clay court tennis player,i'm sure some will rub off onto Murray.Dubai comming up i don't think Murray will do good @,he never does good here,but the 2 Masters after,i think he will show good @ least one.Like many other tennis fans i'm looking forward to the great tennis we should have from Nole/Nadal/Murray & Roger.ps Nole is my second favorite player,but keep it quite as it may upset others lol.

Sid, I really think Lendl is a such great influence for Murray. fantastic choice. As much as I love Nole I really think that margin between him and Andy is getting thinner and thinner. There is this part of me that really wants Andy to win a slam. I think he really deserves it. Andy can beat Nadal USO 09.... he did beat Nole in some masters. He simply needs too keep working out and improving his game. I'ts not gonna be easy but I really think he can do it.
