    So Djoko is looking to cake-walk this one, and I think he'll take out the frustration of not winning Indian Wells on whoever stands in his path here .

    Probably, Bob, but you never know. Down 3-0 in the third set, I never would've expected Del Po to win the third set. Del Po was looking gassed, but the Djoker just went away.

    It'd be good for Murray to reach the final again; seeing that there isn't as much competition as in Indian Wells.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Ironically, despite the olympics/USO win...he's performed worse outside of slams since hooking up with Lendl....i feel like he's the most vulnerable of the top 4.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Very true. He seemed to have a lot of confidence after the USO and Olympics, but I haven't seen him give any commanding performances in a while. Definitely the weakest link in that top 4; Del Potro or one of the others just below him are more than ready to pounce. Problem also is that even with them, there's noone besides Nadal, Federer or Djokovic that can give a sense of invincibility on the court.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    These in between-grand slam tournaments are really bad foreshadowing of the 4 grand slams where the top really is the top. I do expect Nadal to win again there, despite how many titles Djokovic might stack up till then.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Federer has no aura of invincibility anymore, Nadal destroyed that in 2008 imo. Nadal has one right now because he sent out a MAJOR statement at Indian wells that was his first non clay court title since 2010 iirc....And he beat Federer,in-form berdych, and super in-form Del Potro to do it. People thought it was going to be a Murrayvic rivalry but Nadal is ready to show otherwise.

    Djokovic massacres Lukas Rosol, the guy who knocked out the injured Nadal in Wimbledon last year, 6-1 6-0, but Del Po loses.

    Murray is also through. I'm surprised to see Del Potro out so soon; maybe fatigue from the previous tournament has caught up to him?

    Indian Wells + Miami is a killer D:

    Wow....35 year old Haas beats Djokovic lol. Picking him as a lock for tournaments seems to be jinxing him lol. Was fun to watch I've always liked Haas. Depending on who's side he's on i think Berdych makes the final.

    Maybe being expected to win is getting to him.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    If it didn't get to him during that 41 match winning streak I think it'd be strange that it got to him now. But this is why we watch sports imo...the unpredictability,game needs some shaking up. I honestly hope Murray doesn't win so someone outside of the big 4 can make a headline.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Well I'm indifferent to Murray winning to be honest but it'd be a good chance for him; the best he's likely to get for a while anyways, with Nadal, Fed and Djoko all not being there. But I think someone outside the top 4 will win. Maybe Haas will be full of confidence after his win over Djoko but if Berdych gets to the final, my money is on him.
