Fed d Ferrero
Blake d. Berdych
Haas d. Safin
Murray d. Davydenko
Roddick d. Baghdatis
Fish d. Gasquet
Soderling d. Youzhny
Nadal d. Novak

QF

Roddick vs. Fish (3 sets)
Nadal d. Soderling (4 sets)

Federer d. Murray (3 sets)
Roddick d. Nadal (4 sets)

What do you guys think?

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

I think Novak will beat Fish. It looks a pretty strong QF list though, I can't be bothered to go through the draw to do one of my own though haha. I'd so laugh if it was that exact same draw in the actual tournement though haha.

Novak won't play Fish unless he beats Nadal in round four and wins his QF.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.

I think that Fish will fail much earlier, he sucked a lot against Greul, didn'T seem very fit.

I hope that Tursunov will be able to advance against Berdych before and also against Blake, but we'll see.

Murray is way overrated in here. I don't see him winning more than one set against Haas (or Ginepri, who is the bigger danger for Tommy, i think).

And I don't see Roddick winning two sets in a possible final against Roger, one maybe.

the rest is fine

Also hoping Tursunov will come through, but Berdych has been so consistent at the slams.

I think this tournament is Fish's breakthrough. Djokovic seems awfully unfit, and hasnt had good results for a few weeks now. I think Mardy looks pretty good in that one.

Murray isn't so easy to defend, but with Gilbert along and plenty of rest between matches, I think he can beat Tommy, who god knows will probably have to retire from the match. Hasn't he retired like 3 or 4 times this year?

I will stand by my Roddick prediction, although a tight four sets might be a little more likely. I think Andy will come out rarin' and win the first set, then stick with it to get maybe the third or fourth.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

QF

Federer d. Blake (5 sets) Agree - defeating Berdych
Murray d. Haas (4 sets)
Roddick vs. Fish (3 sets) Agree - defeating Gasquet
Nadal d. Soderling (4 sets)

SF

Federer d. Murray (3 sets)
Roddick d. Nadal (4 sets) - reluctantly agree: Nadal will ouplay Roddick, but the serve will keep him in the match to win it.

F

Federer d. Roddick (5 sets) Agree - 4 sets


What do you guys think?
Murray reaching semi-final would not surprise me.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
