I have voted for Federer.

Although my heart hopes for an Andy's win, I think that Andy's lack of experience on the clay surface (leading to less effective strategies being employed) will mean that he loses before reaching the final.  However, if he somehow manages to reach the final then I would say that he will beat Federer due his recent string of victories against Fed giving Andy enormous confidence boosts.

Oh wow... Nadal out... I am stunned but very happy... Murray may well reach the final, but I think this will be the year Fed completes his career GS... Smile

I really don't know! My heart says Andy, but my head says Fed! I definately think it will give Fed a massive boost now Nadal is out! I really do feel though that Andy can reach the final and he will be looking to get Fed back for the 08 US Open final!

I'm going for Andy.

Federer's single handed backhand on clay will always cause him problems against players who are backhand dominant like Andy, or lefty-forehand a la Rafa. It'll be easier for Andy to trouble Federer on clay with his backhand than Federer to trouble Andy with his forehand.

The toughest match for Andy I suspect would be Davydenko if both get to the semis but I can't see Davydenko winning should he reach the final.

The longer this tournament has gone on, the more you begin to think that Andy actually has an almost perfect game for clay, certainly from a shot-making perspective, if not his movement as of yet.

Funny that Andy has gone further than both Djokovic and Nadal in a clay court tournament. I certainly didn't think that would happen at the start of this year.

I think Andy's movement is almost perfect on clay now. I certainly haven't seen any problems recently. He's sliding brilliantly. Murray's problem is the lack of top spin on his shots. They often land short and in the hitting zone on clay.

I've got a feeling that we're not going to see a Murray-Federer final. Whichever one of those two makes the final will win it though, and I'm going with Fed as the most likely.

What a strange strange slam!

Every player left in the draw stands no chance against Murray at his best on hard courts but on the red stuff he still has some major obstacles to overcome. Mind you, Verdasco out, Nedal out, Jokes-shop out...it’s probably about the nicest final 8 imaginable in Paris.

It is conceivable that he could win this and it would be just like him to do so and surprise us all but I have my doubts given how anxious Fed is to win this. That being said, he isn’t having the best tourney and I firmly believe that RG will throw up a couple more shocks...let’s just hope Murray isn't one of them and Federer is!

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

Someone has to start this thread. We can't let it pass that Rafa lost to Soderling and opened up the draw to a few fascinating possibilities:

1) Not least that, if Fed can hold his nerve and win four tennis matches, he will probably be seen as the GOAT.
2) But will that GOAT title forever be tarnished by winning the French without having beaten Rafa?
3) What could it mean for Muzza? With Nadal out and Andy already in the quarters, with a draw that's as kind as it ever could be, he surely has his best-ever shot at the French. If he makes the final, can he beat Fed on clay? Will he need to?

This is the most fascinating French Open I can remember.

I think we have a thread on Nadal's departure, do you agree they are the same? Are you happy for me to merge them?

I think the toughest question there is can Murray beat Federer on clay... I woiuld normally say that Federer is the slight favourite but now this opportunity has come about, I think Federer is the massive favourite.
