Re: Predict the number of "Federer-Djokovic" Grandslam draws in 2011.

Is there any rule that #1 and #3 have to be in the same half?
I really want Fed to meet Nadal in a GS semi. When was the last it happened?

No. The rules are that the #1 has to have EITHER #3 or #4 in his half while #2 has the other.

Roland Garros 2005.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

It does look suspicious...when Nole was no.3 he had Fed more often than not in his draw...now that he's no.1 he also gets Fed in his draw. I don't really care because if you're no.1 you should be able to beat anyone but it would be nice if the draws were a bit more even. I wanna see more Fed-Nadal semis on HARD COURTS.

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

No doubt it will be 4/4, USO organizers are still desperate to have a Federer/Nadal final at the US Open, and should that fail, the idea of a Nadal/Djokovic final will be mouthwatering.

Don't say at the Wimbledon it was that bad thing.

Never ever give up

why though? wouldn't a Djokovic/Federer final be more of a draw, than Djokovic/Nadal? Why wouldn't they want a Fed/Nadal semi (so they get that match, even if it's not in the final) and hope Federer wins but be happy with either outcome?
I don't think they rig these draws but if they do, I don't get why they'd do it that way, to be honest

I think the worm is turning. I'm going for 3. Murray in Djokovic's half in the US open. Nadal will have Federer.

I do find it a bit suspicious that at US OPEN in 2008, 2009, 2010 Djokovic was in Fed's section. That's 3 years in a row. Australian Open is even worse: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 - Djokovic was ALWAYS in Fed's section.

On hard courts (GS especially) Nole is almost always in Fed's section.

Only at FO Nole was drawn against Nadal.

If he's in Fed's section this year in USO, it will look a bit suspicious.

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

Hopefully when Mugray drops in ranking, Olderer can draw him in QF and Djoker in SF.

Nadal always get his two most dangerous opponents battling it out to death in the semi.

El Matador is the man for high bucks. ATP mafia rig draws to carve out drama in tournaments. Matador is the one they often look up to for drama.

What a corrupt sport... Matchfixing, doping and rigged draws... And I just wondered the other day why I don't watch as much tennis as I used to... It's corrupt!
