Favourite Top 100 Tennis Player - Semifinal 1

Hi everyone. It is time for the Semifinals!
5 players from each Quarterfinal have gone through to the next round. I have chosen to count the points they gained into the previous round and this QF and sort them inside a table to establish the most voted for players. Here are the standings:


I don't really know if Hian would have gone for this, but to me it seemed like the most fair solution: The Top 2 players from the standings have been put as top players in each semifinal. Then, 3rd and 4th have been randomly put in one of the two groups. 5-8 randomly allocated (two for each group), and the same with the 9th and 10th player. Finally, for the players located between 11th and 20th places, 5 random players were selected for group 1, and the other 5 went into semifinal 2.

For this stage, only 4 players proceed to the Final. So, hurry up.

Here is the lineup for Semifinal 1. Voting will be open for 4 days.
Semifinal 2 will be opened on Wednesday and remain open until Sunday.
The final will be set next week, and I have thought of an interesting format for it.
Pleasant voting


1. (1) Haas, Tommy:


2. (3) Dimitrov, Grigor:


3. (6) Djokovic, Novak:


4. (7) Nishikori, Kei:


5. (9) Ferrer, David:


6. (12) Mathieu, Paul-Henri:


7. (15) Mayer, Florian:


8. (17) Raonic, Milos:


9. (18) Janowicz, Jerzy:


10. (19) Kohlschreiber, Philipp:

Re: Favourite Top 100 Tennis Player - Semifinal 1

Thanks for saving this, Slasher. Sorry if you mentioned this somewhere, but how many players go through to the finals from either QF?

I really didn't because I forgot, but I added it now in the OP. 4 players from each Semifinal proceed into the final.

Re: Favourite Top 100 Tennis Player - Semifinal 1

I assume the final isn't going to be a multiple choice poll?

I mean, I'm sceptical about format changes.
The original format apparently was an 8 (or 10) player multiple choice final, analogous to the previous stages.

I'm afraid Federer would win then by a large margin whereas the likes of Haas and Dimitrov, who many people give their second or third vote, had no chances anymore.
(If not for multiple choice in the QF I'm sure Nadal and Murray were not yet eliminated.)
