we'll probably end up with Nole, Rafa, Murray and Rog in SF (yeah, it's getting too boring and too predictable).

Isner, Karlovic

No one wants to play these two.

Of course Del Potro, the more time he spends on the court he'll get better.
Fed, Djokovic and Murray should still beat him but he plays better against Nadal than those three.

Del Potro for sure. Also Tsonga. He had a tremendous end to last year, a great start this year, a blip to Nishikori in the AO but he's back in the semifinals this week. Clearly he has game and has beaten all top 4 in grand slams.

Also Nishikori and Raonic and Isner if they catch fire.

That wasn't the question. At least with Delpo you're going to get a chance to play tennis and play on your terms. They'd much rather play Delpo than Isner or Karlovic.

Yeah, I got this one right.

Agreed. I think the top 4 would much rather play Delpotro than Karlovic and Isner. More-so Isner than Karlovic because Isner not only has the serve but has also done a decent job in creating offense with his ground game.

i think Isner, Raonic, Delpotro & Fish( picked him because he'll be favoured due to the venue of the masters : USA ) will be tough for the top 4 !! :)
You can ignore reality, but you can't ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

well Ash, don't know... I really have this stupid feeling that Nole, Rog and Rafa care about slams only. by all mean they will take masters but , it my be just my feeling, they don't simply care that much. look at Nole after the USO, injured shoulder... and than he wins the AO... I don't buy it  :)

I don't think Nadal & Djokovic will be as hungry this year at this IW/Miami double. I see anyone but them winning those events.

I do, Nadal wants to get things 'straightened out'.
Djokovic doesn't want to 'let down'.
 
If they both reach the final it'll be 'very' interesting.

Nadal has 19 Master's shields already, I just don't see him that hungry for these events anymore. If anything he wants to win a 7th French Open and the YEC in London. Federer wants a 2nd French Open so he can be the only man with 2 career grand slams.

yeah, agree with you. Nole wants RG desperately. I think Fed would be happier if can manage to win another W. Nadal simply wants to keep his RG crown.

Nole has won many Masters Titles,how many Alex can tell us.Come the Masters Titles it won't be all Nadal,Murray's been winning 2 a year from 2008 on wards,that's 2 a year & 8 Masters Titles in total.Tennis from now Murray has a great chance to make ground on tennis players above him in the rankings,maybe over take some.
