Blake in Rafa's quarter. Again.

Tsonga in the fourth round.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Nah we all know Nole will get the golden slam. He's the GOAT, i'm not bothering believing in Rafa's chances.

Fair enough.

I'm not a natural born optimist by a long shot by the way.

Re: Rafa in IW - Come and play the guessing game!

LOL.

Its not too bad.

Blake might not even make it that far, he could lose to Gasquet, and Richie is cannon fodder for Rafa. Tsonga is lacking match play. Nadal owns Lopez.

The draw is not too bad, no? If Rafa finds his IW mojo that is....

OK I think I'll include the revised picks in a 2nd table so that we can compare the before and after predictions.

Jonathan, these things don't matter. I thought you had learned your lesson about making such sweeping statements, considering Rafa's hardcourt "form" (or lack of it)

Can't see him making the semis, in all seriousness.
