Will the second semi-final be finished today?

Depends of course on how long the first SF takes (can't see Ferrer vs. Nadal being a quick match), whether there are any weather delays, and how many sets Djokovic vs. Federer goes to. Last year the first semi was only three sets, there were no rain interruptions, and Djokovic vs. Federer went to four sets - yet it was getting dark by the end of it (they would have suspended had it gone to a fifth). So what do you think?

Depends on weather and how long the first semi takes.

Nadal's arms strong!

Tio Toni's cloud seeding choppers will ensure the second match ends late on Saturday.

On Murray

Hopefully it isn't, so Rafa gains an advantage.

MORE advantage?

has there ever been a grandslam with more advantage to a player than this one?

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Looks like rain next 4 days, and its very windy today. Ergo Rafa will cruise and Olderer Nole will be mugs match.

I know. But still matches need to be played. If everything was already written, why bother living? Ever believed you make your own destiny?
