If Murray had his forehand and second serve, confidence would come alonge. Wink

If he had a gluten free diet he'd be great too...

Djokovic will NOT keep up this level enough to win RG.  However, I hope we can win Rome also because then I am going to have a nice large bet on Rafa at rather sweet odds (comparatively)....

As for Andy well, he is in the second division at the moment.  Nole and Rafa are ahead of everyone, and for the moment anyway Nole is the King.

we shouldn't get carried away so easily, cause Madrid is Nadal's least favorite clay tournament. He was plenty lucky in the past here. Djokovic did a great job, but Nadal is a clear favorite for the RG, in my opinion. Wink

It's going to be very interesting.  I think the Joker has the bit well and truly between his teeth and has Nadal worried.

Great match from both players but Nole deserved to win, if only Andy had half his confidence and belief!
I've little doubt that Djoko consulting a sport psychologist went a long way to helping get that confidence and belief.  In fact he's hinted strongly at that fact himself.  Mental attitude counts for a heck of a lot in any sport.

I know a banana skin could come along at any time, but I predict Djoko for No.1 by the end. of the year.

Fabulous, confident aggressive play from Djko. clap How interesting that Rafa had no answers against his backhand, also seemed to be directing the ball there rather too much. Did the gr8 Rafa start panicing and stop thinking? confused
As a matter of fact I like Novak's chances at RG very much.
Please Andy get some inspiration here pray

Nole wins. Awesome performance - the next number one without a doubt.

Watch and weep, Mugray.

Murray was "very happy" with his performance in Madrid against Bellucci - in which he was totally outclassed and soundly thrashed by the world number 36 - so no tears there.
As he says "its only a game, theres far more important things in life than tennis" - as opposed to Djokovic who appears to be taking it far too seriously

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Nice 'hot-dog' lob from Nadal that the commentators raved about. However, I would have thought that, if you're going to hit the ball between your legs, that the lob would  be easier than the passing shot. After all, it's hard to get the power you need for a regular groundie/passing shot.
