Why do you think JMDP would be guaranteed to knock off Ferrer though? Ferrer's a bit of a bad match up (albeit less so at the USO than at other slams)
If he beats Nole in the QF, he's not losing his next match to effin Ferrer LOL (even Tipsy). I mean, if he did
It will be a non-issue though as I don't think he's beating Nole. His form is not good at all at the moment: he's still too much for most of the mugs on tour, but it won't cut it against Nole of course. He could play a great match out of nowhere of course, and then he'd have a chance, but safe money is on Nole in 3 or 4.
