the whole tournament is a joke even by exho standards
they had Nadal seeded into SF and Murray has to play from QF despite Muzza being ranked higher
and now they give Almagro, the young & more exciting option than Federer, dull's spot in sf and Murray still plays extra match
They did the same last year, don't you remember? Novak was ranked #1, yet he had to play one match before getting to the semis, where he met Roger, who had been given a bye, in spite of being ranked #3.
Last year some people said that that's why Roger lost so badly to Nole: because Nole got extra practice. Maybe this time Nole will lose to Berdych or Ferrer, they are the only 2 players who will get an extra match before the semis this year.
