    what odds can you get on it not being one of them 3?
    Federer made a slam final (I forget which) fairly recently, before his injury, when people were saying he was down and out... went to 5 sets with Novak IIRC. If he can get to a final when he's not playing well, I see no reason he can't win another one if he stays fit.
    Nadal is still quite young, though it seems he's been around forever. His body will surely give up at some point but his performance in Paris was up there with his very best, which has to be a bit depressing for everyone younger.

    Who else is realistically going to win it... Raonic?

    Will that be under Scottish law?

    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    It worked pretty well for 300 years, why change a winning formula?

    Murray only really got really good in the period Nadal was struggling so we've not seen them both at their peak very often that I can recall. Can they meet before the final?
