How is it going to be a good final? Serena is going to destroy Sharapova.

That's great news and I agree with the people who say that Queens should be a 500 event.

So it's Ferrer/Murray in the final. If I was a Murray fan, I wouldn't be that confident of him winning honestly. Against Nadal, Federer and Djokovic, Ferrer does get owned by them but against Murray, that isn't the case at all. Their matches are normally close and unlike against Djokovic, Nadal and Fed, his H2H record against Murray is quite close too. It's 6-5 in Murray's favour. I'm not saying he won't win, he probably will but Ferrer could cause him some problems and I wouldn't be suprised if Ferrer actually manages to win.

The world number 1 and the world number 2 facing each other. On paper thats a good final.

And Serena destroying people is entertaining, so it'll be better than the mens final probably.

On another note, i've booked my tickets for the ATP tour finals . I got a full day session for the Monday, so hopefully Tsonga & or Del Potro are drawn into that group if they make it. Also, i hope to see Federer in that group so i can see the GOAT live.

Murray's H2H's are misleading. People read way too much into H2H's and don't even make them relative to the situation. H2H in the last 12 months I'd read more into. Murray's too good for Ferrer and it's his title as long as he keeps up the form he's shown this week.

Gasquet's backhand is wonderful at times. Really wonderful. Murray kinda blew the 1st set but Gasquet was great and wasn't undeserving of winning it. Then Gasquet let his game drop just a little and Murray pounced. Murray's getting really good at grinding matches out and stepping his game when his opponent steps down. Almost Djokovic like at times grinding.

Not entirely sure being 2nd seed for the French is ideal for Murray. Probably means he draws Nadal in the Semi if they both make it that far right? Eh. He could do with being 2nd seed for Wimbledon and US to avoid Djokovic until the Final.

I don't think Ferrer will cause Murray the problems Gasquet did in the semi final. They are both very good at defensive play but Murray's better in that respect and has more weapons also. Murray is getting good at grinding out matches when his opponent's playing great. He looks and if he sees someone's level drop even slightly, he's jump right in and take over. That's the sign of a good player, to weather the storm and eventually pounce to get the job done.

Regarding the French Open draw. It depends really, if Nadal drops points and goes back to number five until that point it could be that either number one or number two ends up with both Federer and Nadal in their half with the other having a very much clearer path. It would just be the luck of the draw. I'm not sure if there's a certain way the draws go for the top four. Or if it's just random. So if Nadal stays at number four I'm not sure which half he'd end up in. He does have a fair few points to defend on clay though and will have to contend with both Murray and Djokovic (mostly Djokovic) to win titles.

It's a very interesting time in tennis right now though. Loads of different things could happen. You never know, Murray might end up being a maestro on clay, Djokovic could be as good on clay as he was in 2011, Nadal might not be as good as Murray and Djokovic, Federer might up his level, Del Potro might make his move.

On paper maybe, but it's not really going to be a good final. Serena is going to smash Sharapova.

Definitely not for me but each to their own I guess. And out of curiosity, why do you think a Ferrer/Murray is going to be boring? I was pretty entertained by their match last year in Wimbledon.

The last time they faced was last year in Wimbledon and since then Murray has improved a lot so you got a point there but still Ferrer shouldn't be understimated. I think he is capable of causing an upset.

I agree. I think Ferrer will be tougher than people think. Murray's rightly favourite and I think his class will show but it won't be as comfortable as anyone may think. I'm not that confident enough to bet on him.

Womens final was high quality tennis from Sharapova in the first set and a half while Williams wasn't playing that good. But once Serena started hitting his shorts and getting her timing right, it was never in doubt. She's now won the last 11 matches played against Sharapova and 6-0 in the last set had to sting. When she's on, Serena Williams in unplayable. Would not be shocked at all to see her win at least two of the three slams left this year. French is always a shakey one, but she's better than everyone on hard and grass when she plays to the best of her ability.

Now...come on Andy!! Win and become the new world number two please!
