    Will Nadal be ready for Australia? Will Nadal win Australian Open?
    Been a while since we saw you! He won't win it, backing my man Gasquet. Or in all seriousness Novak to regain his dominance there.

    I think Nadal should win it after what happened this year. Heck he should have won it in 2012 and this year.

    He should be fired up even more for this slam more than ever.

    By am always on the forum

    Gasquet been taking lessons on how to play tennis from Rafa at mollarca

    Slam predictions for me..

    Ausi - Djokovic vs Nikishori

    French - Nadal vs Del Potro

    Wimbledon - Federer vs Del Potro

    US - Djokovic vs Del Potro

    Slight hopecast since the big 4 have declined a little but I think Nikishori is on a high and Del Potro will smash back into the rankings.

    Impressive from Murray, just hammered Rafa 2 & love. Nadal was rusty though, can't read too much into an exhibition event.

    Looks like another Abu Dhabi exo win for Novak Djokovic to start the season. Murray did play well against Nadal, but he's still capable of playing a lot better (and Nadal was very rusty - 0/12 on Break Points!). Any kind of win is important though.

    Lets be realistic. Nadal hasn't played a lot of tennis in the last 6 months so chances of him winning the AO weren't great even prior to his trashing at the hands of Murray.

    Nadal will be in better form in Melbourne - he is just being a bit cautious.
    We will have to see which side of the draw he lands in: Djokovic? or Federer side?

    Murray 'wins' Abu Dhabi after Djokovic apparently pulls out of the final, citing fever.

    beating federer seems like a bad omen i.e 2012 and 2014

    Djokovic will burn through Nadal in Semis if it happens.

    Perfect scenario for Federer at the Australian Open:

    Djokovic and Nadal kill each in their marathon semi final with Djokovic coming out victorious, giving Federer an opportunity to finish a tired Nole off.

    Probably won't happen but one can dream
