What Mutua Madrid Open 2013 Means for the Big Four?

Odds & News | M.K ( Thu 2nd, May 2013 )

Well, Mutua Madrid Open is here again and with all the major contenders you could wish on it

Blue clay included. With the return of Rafel Nadal to the courts, this couldn't be more exciting. The top ten ranked players are ready to make the best of their efforts to claim Madrid title, and warm up for the expected Grand Slam at Roland Garros. As one of the major tune-ups for the French Open; every competing player has something to prove while each of the "Big Four" will try to make their stand and show everyone of what they are made of.

Novak Djokovic constantly gives us surprises with every game he plays; he is on the road to create a legacy as the number 1 player of the world. With his victory over Nadal in Monte Carlo, his wits and confidence increased considerably; a great boost to enter on any clay court and be ready for Roland Garros Arena. Nadal return and all the media hype about it could be the cause behind Djokovic confidence to be heightened. With Roger Federer and Andy Murray not having their best moments, the Spaniard at the other side of the net is the only threat between him and Madrid title and probably the French Open as well.

Rafael Nadal on the other side seems to have recovered from his severe knee surgery; after almost 8 months of absence, the Spaniard recently claimed Barcelona title, adding a 39th clay-court tournament title to his collection. The King of Clay is so dominant on the red surface; that the recent defeat at the hands of Djokovic in Monte Carlo it%u2019s considered an upset. Nadal has proven many times why he is the undisputed king at the red courts; and he will come back with force at Madrid to stop Djokovic race to claim his throne.

Andy Murray began his clay court season with a lot of successful winnings to back him up after the victory acquired at the Sony Open in Miami. His confidence grew up after his sweet summer last year when he won gold at the 2012 Olympics and finally claimed a Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open. Murray recently has mentioned his intentions of conquering clay, especially on Monte Carlo; however his prowesses suffer a disappointing interrupt at the hands of Stanislas Wawrinka, also moving him from being ranked No.2 to be again at No.3. Murray still is part of the Big Four, and he could be a menacing threat on any surface. If he can make a good display in Madrid, he probably will gain some more confidence to put the fight at Roland Garros.

Even as incredible this could be, Roger Federer appearances seem to have suffered most in the latest games this season. His last match up against Nadal at the Indian Wells have not favored the Swiss who appeared to be sluggish and not playing his best game. El Maestro usually is a solid performer, but not being at his 100%; Federer back injury has prevented him to play in any clay court this season. If his back allows it, the ATP No.2 champion probably will stand up and show us he is not finished yet; however, an early exit from Madrid could prove the opposite and give reasons to believe the rumors about his performance decline.
