This so called Birdshit to you was going to win the AO with a good draw, shame the organisers fucked around with him.

Of Course Berdych. As nasty as it could get of a seed. Got Kohli the highest unseeded player in the draw or Kamke in R2! Then Gasquet, and in R4 Davydenko. Bu i doubt that he will come this far!

Re: Which Top 8 Seed Has The Hardest Draw?

It depends on how you look at it. A grand slam is a long tournament.

Berdych can easily get through his first 3 rounds so I don't know why you would call it a hard draw. However, he has Davydenko in there if he manages to get through those first matches which is pretty much a mountain to climb for him, especially since he hasn't improved from last season.

But for the 4th round onwards, I think anyone of Soderling, Murray and yeah, I guess Berdych could put a gun to their head in spite of the bad luck.

Nadal's and Djokovic's draws are unreal.

Re: Which Top 8 Seed Has The Hardest Draw?

Might actually really be Nadal. He must be thinking this is too good to be true. Dangerous.

So I was recently informed that my signature was empty and needed a life affirming quote from an inspirational figure like Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde...

When I die my mates had better not tweet some cheesy crap like I'm watching over them or some jazz. Watch your train-wreck lives? I'll take my chances in hell.

Re: Which Top 8 Seed Has The Hardest Draw?

Birdshit/Berdych because there are a lot of veterans in there. Kohlschreiber in the 2nd round. Harrison or Gasquet. Tipsarevic, Davydenko, and Verdasco are no walkovers either.

Berdych definitely has the hardest. Second hardest I would go with is Soderling. Starace, Istomin, Gulbis, Kukushkin, Seppi, Clement, and Tsonga are not easy if they are on. I believe I posted a difficulty post on a different thread, I'll probably copy/paste it here later tonight when I have time.

Most of the brackets in this tournament are VERY FAIR or at least EASY for the top 8. With the exception of Berdych and Soderling to a lesser extent.

Regardless of situations, I expect Murray to defeat Federer in the final in 4 sets.
