Your man was pretty sensational today Alex, you must be very confident going into the weekend of Novak getting to the final and facing Rafa. He showed today that he's a huge threat on clay even if it is his most uncomfortable surface at this moment in time, and even though the same applies to Murray- probably to more of a degree whn it comes to clay- he proved just how far ahead of him he is both with his game and mentally.Thanks Chris, I'm very happy. I think Nole will be in the semis and we'll go from there .
Yeah although Querrey's had a superb week and has been hugely impressive Novak is up a couple of levels completely, so he is almost for sure going to be in the semi's and thats when it gets interesting
but if he plays as he did vs Murray today then I'd tip him over either Fed or Nalbandian- problem comes on Sunday
However, the way Djoko has started this clay season suggests to me he's got to be the favourite right now for the number 1 year end ranking, as he's already ahead in the race, and he looks as if he could do a decent containing job on Rafa, while maybe matching/bettering Fed throughout, then its all promising from Wimbledon onwards for Novak- especially on the hardcourts of America where he'll have an advantage over Rafa. If he can look to contain Rfa's race lead to 100-150 points and be ahead of Roger still by a decent margin after Paris I'd say he's in great shape to be the year end number 1.
