I enjoy watching some players more than others. This notion that Murray is a terrible player to watch is kinda baffling give his shot making ability and the rallies his defensive skills produce.
Dull match. Both players knew there was nothing to play for after the 1st set. Tsonga is god awful when he's off like that. Be nice if adding a coach to his game gets the best back out of him and has him knocking on the door of the top 4 again. The game kinda needs one of those guys like him, Del Potro and Berdych to really step up and have success in the majors. Especially now with Federer nearing the end of his era of dominance and question marks about how Rafa will be physically when he comes back.
TBH, i was ranting a little bit because i put "Allez Jo!!" and "Come on Tsonga!!" on Facebook, and a load of people started having a go at me, saying that i should be supporting Murray just because he's British, and all that.
I'm not patriotic at all really. I don't even support the England football team (In fact i want them to lose every game. Can't do with their style of football, and it's full of over-rated players). I'm not a big fan of the way Murray likes to play tennis, therefore i don't support him. He's too passive for my liking, and ends up feeding of UE's most of the time. He can play good aggressive tennis, but decides not to at times.

Nadal only got 1 voter (Samoon) i think. Federer appeared on everyones list i think. Ferrer appeared on a lot of lists, but was low down in every one of them. Del Potro appeared on most of them too. I suprised to see Safin so high
As for today, i don't expect Federer to be at 100%. I think he may want to conserve himself for the semi finals tomorrow. I don't think he'll tank, i just think he won't give 100%. Juan will be giving 100% because if he loses, he's out. So i think JMDP will win today, even with his poor record against Federer.
I expect Ferrer to beat Tipsarevic.
