G Simon 200/1
J Blake 200/1

more like 1000000000/1. Has Simon even won a match this year?

Tennis Vagabond Says:

Quite amazing that, given all the attention to Fed’s decline, however slight it has actually been, as well as Rafa’s resurgence, that Fed still gets nearly even odds against the entire field.

My picks would be:
top echelon: well, there’s just the two of them, right?
second tier: the two Andy’s

After this, I think there’s no real contenders but a number of dark horses who could at least take out one of those 4 contenders if not contend themselves would include Djokovic, Hewitt, Soderling (I just don’t see him moving well enough on grass, able to get low, etc., but if his serve is on…) and Querrey. I think these three could do some damage. Maybe would throw in Wawrinka, who fought well against Murray last year, or one of the Talented Flakes (TM): Berdych, Gasquet, Gulbis or Baghdattis who can beat anyone when the stars align. I suppose Cilic would fit in this dark horse/bracket buster echelon as well.

I don’t want to wait a week, bring it on!

tennislover Says:

Davydenko as the 14th favorite?! That is really surprising. He is a brilliant player on other surfaces but his career grass record is 8-16. There are so many players below him in that list who have much better grass court credentials.

I agree with Tennis Vegabond that there are very few players who look like genuine contenders and there appear to be, potentially, a lot of giant killers. Maybe the results of the two warm up events have made us, all of a sudden, realize that it is much more open although I wonder if it really is the case given that wimby is best of five where the the top two really excel. Roddick, Murray and Hewitt are also very comfortable playing best of five. I can see some big upsets along the way but I don’t think we will see a surprise winner.

guy Says:

good betting odds for tsonga and jankovic.

wish people would stop talking about ‘titles won’ as if it says so much. it doesn’t. QF SF F of masters tourn and grandslams demonstrate more success than winning 250s.

you can go a whole year without titles, make big runs at slams/masters and obviously have a better year than someone who wins a couple of smaller events.

guy Says:

interesting to see how nalbandian and gasquet go and who they face first few rounds.

Your post was well hit. Was that winner a slice BH or a topspin FH? :)

Eskay Says:

It would depend a lot on the draw. Big servers like Isner, Karlovic, Querrey, Gulbis can end anybody’s hopes on their day. Roger sometimes is difficult to pass by with a big serve, but all others are vulnerable. If they were to fall in the other half than Roger’s, surprises will not be unexpected.

nadline Says:

Eskay, I agree with you that Isner and Karlovic are truly spoilers that could upset any apple cart, I was just going to make that point myself. As for Gulbis, I don’t think it’s his serve alone, he’s got a lot more going for him to be a real threat to anyone, but I have a query on Querry (forgive the pun), OK he won Queens, but I don’t think his serve is that potent and I don’t rate him anywhere as dangerous as Roddick or Gulbis in the camp of big servers.

If Karlovic and Isner could be knocked out early, it wouldn’t be a bad thing.

Matthew Rosenbaum Says:

Wimbledon is approaching and it will be an intense tournament as always. I am reading a book called “100 Sporting Events You Must See Live” by Robert Tuchman and he ranks this event at number 11.
