Istomin was a good sport. After that ridiculous point on break point that Murray won to break him to go up in the fourth, Istomin gave him a high five during the changeover!
So, now the quarters are set.
Nadal vs. Robredo - Eh, probably not much to see here. Robredo had some excellent shot making against Federer, but Fed hasn't been playing his best and Nadal's been at the top of his game. Nadal leads the series 6-0, so I'm assuming Robredo freezes against Nadal like most Spaniards do.
Gasquet vs. Ferrer - Ferrer has already surprised me by making it this far. I really didn't expect him to. Now he goes up against a pretty in-form Gasquet. It might be a pretty interesting match. I hope Gasquet can pull it out. The fast hard courts definitely favor him over Ferrer.
Djokovic vs. Youzhny - Not expecting much from this one. Nole will probably pick apart Youzhny in no time. Youzhny has been playing pretty well, but he had a long match against Hewitt and he's already pretty old, so fitness will definitely be a key issue against Nole, who will probably wear out his legs within the first set, then finish destroying him.
Wawrinka vs. Murray - It was great to see Wawrinka pull the upset on Berdych. Ever since that amazing match with Djoker at the AO, I've been a fan of Wawrinka, and he's been doing really well this year. It would be awesome to see him take out Murray, which I think he's capable of with how well he's playing and how Murray still seems to be pretty lethargic on the court.
So, I'm hoping for Nadal/Gasquet and Djoker/Wawrinka semis, but I know that Nadal/Ferrer and Djoker/Murray is PROBABLY more likely, but who knows? I guess we'll see what happens. I'd be fine with either a Nadal/Djoker or Nadal/Wawrinka final. Both sound entertaining! Nadal seems to be a shoe in for the final. I don't see Ferrer or Gasquet troubling him too much.
