Roddick, let's make it a 1, 2, 3, 4 Punch

Now that Mr. Complainy Pants Nadal, Mr. Vacation Federer and Djokovic have come through to the semis, Roddick can make it a perfect square if he beats Gasquet.

When's the last time this has happened in a men's Grand Slam?

(I'm pretty sure Roddick will get through.)

Yea, but it won't be very competitive matches, honestly I think Gasquet would trouble Federer more than Roddick.

Re: Roddick, let's make it a 1, 2, 3, 4 Punch

What a turnabout that would be - WTA v. ATP. Used to be the ladies side that would rarely see a sub top 8-er in the semis. This year looks like they'll get that young, 23 ranked upstart into the final.

But, yeh, I think A-Rod gets thru no problem to make the perfect quad.

This si the top four seeds. Davydenko is the world #4.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

So, quite logically, following the geometric progression, the next time it will occur is USO 2008.

Last time it happened at Wimbledon was in 1995 with Pete, Andre, Goran and Boris although I don't remember if Goran was seeded #4 or #5 so I may be wrong.

Can't ask for anything more.

As much as I can't stand Roddick, I'd rather see him than Gasquet and his stubby legs.
