uxyzapenje has a point though. The problem is not enough players below the top 4 are good enough competitors. There's guys with talent and ability, and they can play well, but as soon as there's a tricky situation, they fold meekly as their top 4 opponent maintains or increases his intensity and concentration. Unless your name's Rosol. Del Potro is the best competitor by FAR outside the top four, with honourable mentions to Tsonga and the sadly sidelined Soderling. The rest just bend over when it gets to semis and final.
Very much agree.

Re: Big 4 in the semis?

We'll wait and see tommorow i guess.

If Ferrer makes it to Qfs and is not in Rafas section you wouldn't bet against him making Sfs.

Berdych and Tsonga will be licking their lips at the possibility of facing Fed in Qfs. Either will have a great chance of making semis with that draw.

Go Andy!

Ferrer did beat Tsonga at RG, and I think would've beat Berdych at USO

Can't happen now, as we pretty much all knew. Unless you count Ferrer as part of the big 4.
