top four in the semis

Tennis gurus - is this the first time Rafa, Roger, Andy and Novak have all made the semis since last year's US Open? Looking forward to some great tennis tomorrow.

Re: top four in the semis

Yep, but Murray wasn't four then, he was actually sixth in the world.

The last time all four top seeds made the semis was Monte Carlo 2008. Nadal vs. Davydenko and Federer vs. Djokovic.

Re: top four in the semis

I'm fairly certain that this is just the third time that all top 4 seeds have advanced to the semifinals in a Masters Series event; As mentioned above, Monte Carlo '08 was one, the other was Cincinnati '99, #1 Sampras v. #2 Rafter in the final, with #3 Agassi and #4 Kafelnikov in the semis.

Both times previous have yielded a 1 v. 2 final, it'll be interesting to see if that mini-trend gets bucked this week.

It was close

Nadal was the only one that didn't make it and Del Potro at #6 took his place.

Murray wasn't in top 4 back then. However I think the last time it happened in a slam was AO 2005 with Federer, Roddick, Hewitt and Safin.

There an only be One Nadal

Nadal, Roddick, Tsonga, Del Potro & Safin

Actually, the last time it happened in a slam was RG 2006, with #1 Fed, #2 Nadal, #3 Nalbandian and #4 Ljubicic
