i think it'll be a nadal/ferrer semi. i wouldnt be surprised if murray doesnt even make the QF. the 'big four' doesnt really exist anymore its the 'top three.'

Great!
 
Fed needs this one and may take it.
This will be a masterpiece trophy and a testament of his unrelenting will.
 
Then Nadal and Djokovic can fight over what's left.

DelPo is in Fed's quarter which I want those 2 separated because those are my guys.
 
I'd also like to see DelPo against Nadal or Djokovic for a change.

Med, honest to God, this is crazy. I could post some numbers ... I love watching Fed and Nole but this just doesn't make any sense, in my honest opinion. I feel very paranoid right know about the draw stuff at slams  :(.

swish, It just doesn't make any sense to me. It does not really matter to me who meets whom ...  it just so strange that Djokovic and Federer end up 'together' all the time  :\

I don't think it's random.
How do they make these draws anyway? Behind closed doors or is the press there?
 
I'm irritated DelPo keeps ending in Fed's part of the draw, it's been four or five times I think this year alone.
I want to see him play Nadal, Djokovic regardless of the result.

the draws are usually made in front of the press( TV & newspapers)....
i am not surprised by fed ending up in nole's half..its like their almost soulmates. :rofl_2: ://
as a fed fan, i am happy that he is in nole's half as he has more chance of reaching finals..but he has a cruel draw nevertheless..Nalbandian, JMDP & birdman in one quarter.. :)>>>>..
get ready to see nadal in yet another finals..
For me Semifinalist prediction is : Nole, Federer, Ferrer & nadal..

dallas, can we prefix it "grandslam(men)" or "ITF(men)"? money obsessed ATP doesn't deserve to be tagged along side french open in the same sentence.......neither is it involved in any way in this tournament.......
