Dubai – Federer to battle Djokovic, Murray in Top Class Field

Fresh from his title in Rotterdam, Roger Federer heads “home” to Dubai where he will play a very strong field featuring last year’s champion Novak Djokovic, as well as Andy Murray.

Last year Roger Federer lost in the final to Novak Djokovic as the Serb primed himself for an incredible year. Federer will hope to take the title to maintain the great momentum he has shown since the end of 2010.

The men’s first round starts on Monday, 27th February.

Rafa Nadal continues his training programme in Mallorca, although he did take a break on Wednesday to film a new Nike commercial with Cristiano Ronaldo.

Australian Open – Djokovic vs Murray

UPDATE: result – Novak Djokovic scraped past Andy Murray, winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-7, 6-1, 7-5 to reach the final where he will play Rafael Nadal on Sunday

Defending champion, Novak Djokovic must surely now rate as the hot favourite given his 2011 form and the 6-4 lead in the head to head, but Andy Murray has had a running start to the year and could represent a tough hurdle for the Serb.

The same pair met in last year’s final, with Djokovic overcoming Murray in straight sets (6-4, 6-2, 6-3).

US Open Serve Speed Stats 2011

Of the US Open 2011 Semifinalists, who is serving faster? You might be surprised to see the stats…

When Rafa Nadal won the US Open in 2010 a big chunk of the credit went to the seemingly miraculous increase in his serve speed.

He is a little off the pace of 2011, but the stats show it is no longer the weak link in his all round performance.

And if you think it is average speed that matters, well Roger Federer tops the list :)

Here are the numbers up to and including the Quarterfinals:

Fastest serves, US Open Semifinalists 2011

1. Andy Murray – 134 mph (216 km/h)
2. Rafael Nadal – 133 mph (214 km/h)
3. Roger Federer – 132 mph (212 km/h)
4. Novak Djokovic – 129 mph (208 km/h)

Average 1st Serve Speed*, US Open Semifinalists 2011

1. Roger Federer - 115 mph
2. Andy Murray - 113 mph
3. Novak Djokovic - 112 mph
4. Rafael Nadal - 110 mph

* The stats geeks may point out that this is not 100% correct – it is actually the “average of the match averages”.

Here is a link to my spreadsheet used to calculate, all the numbers come from the US Open website.

US Open Semis – Federer vs Djokovic, Nadal vs Murray

Novak Djokovic - Link to ATP Profile

UPDATE: Novak Djokovic came back from 2 sets and 2 match points down to beat Roger Federer, 6-7, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5. Rafael Nadal beat Andy Murray, 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 to join Djokovic in Monday’s final

Roger Federer has a 14-9 lead over Novak Djokovic, and beat him the last time they met (in the French Open this year). So who will it be – the greatest player in history of the man headed for one of the best years ever seen in the history of the sport?

With a small triumph of hope over logic, I’m picking Fed to come out scorching and knock off Nole in a stunning three straight sets.

Rafa Nadal will be relieved to have come through against Roddick with ease, saving energy for the tough match against Andy Murray.

Again, I pick our man in straight sets, leaving both our champions fresh for Monday’s Nadal vs Federer final.

Cincinnati Finals – Djokovic vs Murray

Murray and Djokovic - Link to Head to Head stats

UPDATE – Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 3-0 after the Serb retired with a sore shoulder.

Can Novak Djokovic continue with his absolutely phenomonal year and make it a 100% success rate at Masters events in 2011 (he did not play in Monte-Carlo, which Rafa won), or will Andy Murray overcome the great Serb, who leads 6-3 in the head to head?

It will surely to be get a snapshot of how big the difference really is amongst the top four – I’m going to step out on a limb and predict an upset – Murray in straight sets.

Why? All winning streaks end, and Nole’s time is up – no rhyme nor reason, just a feeling :)

Cincinnati Semifinals – Murray vs Fish, Djokovic vs Berdych

Mardy Fish - Link to ATP Profile

Results: Andy Murray beat Mardy Fish 6-3, 7-6 and Novak Djokovic beat Tomas Berdych 7-5, and retired

Mardy Fish has reigned it over Andy Murray in recent times, having won the last three match ups and leading 4-3. Given Murray’s inconsistency this year, and Fish’s great run of form, I back the American to repeat last year’s final appearance.

Novak Djokovic on the other hand – who would dare to bet against him?! He struggled yesterday in the beginning against Monfils, but came back hard to take out the match, and as his 6-1 lead over Tomas Berdych indicates, he should also be good for yet another 2011 Masters final.
