Who will benefit most from Federer's loss?

Now that Tsonga has knocked out Federer from the Wimbledon, who will benefit the most of this loss? I think Nadal now becomes the favorite to win this title. As I type this question, Nadal is two sets to love up on Mardy Fish and looks on his way to a fluent win. Another person to benefit could be Andy Murray who is also two sets to love up on Feliciano Lopez and also looks on the way to a easy victory. The other person to benefit from thsi would of course be Tsonga. What are your views on this? Cheers! Ram

Thats a very bad news to say Roger Federer kicked out of Wimbledon.I am a big big fan of him.Better next time. This leads to a great opportunity for Nadal.There is no doubt of that.In my opinion too nadal has the greatest benefit of federer's failure.It seems like the power of tennis will lift the cup and not the classic of tennis,this time.

I too am a big fan of Federer. Somehow after the third set loss he did not seem to be his normal self muffing easy winner shots, rather uncharacteristic of this great player. You said it my friend, the kind of Tennis being played by the winning players is all full of power, no grace. Federer's game was able to tackle even that until Nadal came on the scene. Now I think he may not make a come back.

How come Djokovic is not in this discussion? Had Federer won, he'd be in a collision course with Federer, and if the French Open result was any indication, it would've been a tough outing for Novak Djokovic. Now, with him and Tsonga facing off in the semis, its a much easier path to the final for him. Instead of Nadal-Federer, the final would be Nadal-Djokovic.
