Fed won't make it to the quarters.  I don't know who will take him out, just have a sneaky suspicion.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

No surprise to see Nadal exit Wimbledon early. He was clearly playing it cautious (wisely not wanting to bend, as still in recovery mode). Plus he usually struggles in his first match on grass, and that was his first match on grass (no lead-up event). But I have no explanation for Federer's early exit other than his opponent was on fire.

“It is not too far way,” Toni Nadal told The Australian after Nadal collected the 13th major of his career by mowing down Novak Djokovic in an electrifying final of the US Open. “It is getting very, very close for Rafa to be level with Roger or more.”

Wimbledon was just weird this year. Serena going out early as well as Nadal and Fed on the men's side. It was just weird. But yeah, hopefully we'll see a Nadal/Fed QF. I gotta say I'm a bit pissed, though, considering I'm getting to go to the semis and finals, but I'll still miss being at a Fed/Nadal match  :mad1:

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

Find someone with the QF ticket, and swap your FINAL ticket for it (or swap your SF if possible, albeit unlikely), unless you think Nadal-Murray is going to be more worthwhile.

Isner is the most likely big name to be upset.

What is up with that!? This was supposed to be the year Nishikori makes his move into the top 10, and he had a great start early in the year. Flamed out. :(

Wow, I did not see that one coming. And I think people are being too hard on Isner. I have faith he'll make it fairly deep. He won't challenge any of the Big 4, but I think he'll win up until the point he plays on of them.

Aww, poor Rhyne. He did his best to rep for good ole Tennessee, but he fizzled out at the end :( Now we just got Baker to stick up for us.

Gulbis bombs out again.
I had some high hopes for him but it looks like it always does.
 
His talking seems to be the best part of his game.

Verdasco is struggling against Dodig. Dasco is down a break in the 5th set. this is getting interesting.

Verdasco is out too  :crazy:. I just saw the last set. Kudos to Dodig.
