The 2014 Australian Open starts tomorrow and I am so excited. Each year I give you a preview of the Australian Open Draw and do my best to give you a predication on who I think will win.
The 2014 Australian Open I believe will be really good. The sad thing though this is probably the first year where I don't believe Roger Federer even has a shot. Now that he is number 6 in the world there is just too much fire power he would have to go through. On his half of the draw he would have to go through Tsonga, Murray, and Nadal just to get to the final! Love you Roger but sorry no way that is not happening.
I think it will be interested to see how Murray is playing after coming off a back surgery. In my opinion he is going to have to wipe a little rust off before he starts contending for the majors again so I don't see it happening for him either.
Some of my dark horses are Del Potro. Thomas Berdych, and Jerzy Janowicz.
Jerzy is a big boy with a power game that has a lot of flair. For such a big guy he has the best drop shot I have ever seen so look out for him, a lot of fun to watch. The other good thing for him is he is in Ferrer half, who I believe is the most vulnerable out of the top four seeds. Also, in Ferrer quarter of the Australian Open Draw is Thomas Berdych. If you have ever watch him play you know he can beat anyone in the world and I believe he pretty much has.
Then you have Del Potro in Nadal's quarter. Nadal and Del Potro have had some great matches over the years. Del Potro because of his height and wing span matches up very well against Nadal. He does not mind all of Nadal's spin and when he is on he uses it against Nadal to flatten out the ball and punish Rafa. However, I still see Rafa Nadal getting to the final of this year's 2014 Australian Open.
Djokovic is the hottest player on tour and I just don't see anyone on his side who will stop him from reaching the final. Very much like the Federer vs Nadal era the grand slams are getting pretty predictable again that the road to the title either goes through Rafa or the Djoker.
This one is so hard to pick! I hate to go against Rafa because he is playing so great and has defeated Novak in the last two majors the French Open and US Open. However I do believe Novak is the hottest player on tour right now and is the most hungry to hold the 2014 Australian Open Trophy. So my predication is we will have a Novak Djokovic vs Rafeal Nadal Australian Open Final and Novak will come out victorious.
Yes I said it Novak Djokovic wins the 2014 Australian Open Final. What do you guys think? Comment below....
