AO2010: Which SF pairings amongst the top 4 would you prefer?

Hey, so as the title says, assuming the top 4 seeds [1. federer, 2. nadal, 3. djokovic, 4. del potro]
all make it to the SF stage, which SF match-up BETWEEN THE TOP 4 would you like to see? or if you don't want to see any of the top 4 in the SF, list which SF match-ups you would like to see instead.

Vote in the poll, and discuss.

Yeh sure, go ahead and list the other match-ups you would also like to see, i think it will start spicing up in the QF as StatRacket rightly mentioned.

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

Re: AO2010: Which SF pairings amongst the top 4 would you prefer?

I think what makes this Australian Open so appealing is the potential quarter-final match ups as well. With Murray, Davydenko, Roddick and Soderling seeded 5-8, the Australian Open 2010 is set to ignite from the quarters onwards. I remember in previous years' Grand Slams it was all about which half Djokovic would be placed in, so it's much more exciting now.

I would like Federer to play del Potro in the semi-final assuming they both make it that far. Going back to the quarters, I would love for Murray to be in Djokovic's quarter (as they have never played in a Grand Slam), as well as Davydenko in Federer's. Also Roddick in del Potro's and Soderling in Nadal's quarter.

Federer vs Del Potro
Nadal vs Djokovic

Though either way, would love both sets of semi finals.

None. I would like to see semi-final pairings without any of top-4 players.

It will not happen though, I'm pretty sure that at least two (or even three) of them will make semis.

ANDY RODDICK
T. Haas/M. Fish/R. Stepanek/E. Gulbis/M. Llodra/J. Blake/R. Ram/S. Stakhovsky/D. Brown/N. Mahut/I. Navarro/P. Amritraj

F. Mayer/M/Youzhny/F. Fognini/J. Nieminen/L. Rosol/G. Muller/D. Brands/I. Sijsling/K. de Schepper/L. Hewitt/J. Zopp/M. Berrer/I. Karlovic/F. Nielsen/C. Guccione

S. Querrey/J. Janowicz/F. Lopez/B. Baker/R. Harrison/L. Kubot/S. Darcis/D. Meffert/M. Przysiezny/H. Podlipnik-Castillo/A. Olivetti/A. Bogdanovic/P. Oswald/A. Juška/V. Ivanov/R. Bloomfield/N. Rosenzweig

I would love these semifinals:

Davydenko vs Del Potro
Nadal vs Djokovic

As a Rafa fan I'd not see him beating either JMDP or Djokovic in the semi-finals on a hard court at this time so I'd quite like him to avoid both!

That said, if I had to choose then Fed v JMDP, Rafa v Djok.
