The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

you may be right, but that was on clay. WTF is on hard courts.

But we're talking about who will qualify, not how they'll do, right?

And San Jose was on hard.

You're not making any sense.

Re: Final 8! who is going to be in it?

Roger and Rafa for sure as the top seeds. Who the hell knows where everyone else will end up, but I think at least the top seven will be:
Nadal
Federer
Soderling
Murray
Verdasco
Djokovic
Roddick

And I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Ferrer for the last spot. I don't know if Davydenko will have enough to keep him in the top ten. He's been good with coming back post-injury, but who knows. Ferrer though, has had an incredible first half of the year, if he keeps up his form in all his post-Wimbledon clay events and on the hard courts, he might have a decent shot to make London.
