Big 4 in the semis?

A couple of years ago they would pretty much have this every slam. Even Murray made the French one year.

However it's been well over a year now. Between Nadal and Murray missing slams through, and Federer going out in the Quarter finals several times, we've not had this lineup in a long time.

IMO, there is nothing better for hardcore fans than a semi final Friday featuring all of the big 4.


Let's hope it happens next week.

Tennis Tipping:
Singles: 159
Doubles: 140
Doubles titles:
Itajai CH 2014 w/Redkop
ATP Delray Beach 2015 w/Samib_187

LOL.

No.

Hardcore fans do not want a big 4 Friday in slams.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

The big 4 can only all make the semis if we see a Nadal/Ferrer quarter.

Re: Big 4 in the semis?

You mean hardcore gloryhunters and casuals, right? Yes, for those, I suppose there's nothing better than the so-called 'Bi g 4' SF lineup.

Fill-in-the-Draw (5): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015, Sydney 2016 and Buenos Aires 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 3 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Big 4 in the semis?

It was becoming boring as hell but unfortunately it became even worse with Ferrer as replacement. Things might get better from now on.

I do not want to see Noserer in semis. I want GOAT to send him back to Swiss Alps in QF

What do you mean, so called? Which player doesn't deserve?

Re: Big 4 in the semis?

Ferrer has made more of the past 4 semis than Federer. Give me a Haas, Hewitt, Kohli, Youzhny semi lineup.

Hewitt making a 4R vs Djokovic would be such a fun match.
