Re: Which four will make it to the semi's?

obviously federer will qualify.
on davydenko's current form he will qualify and has an excellent chance of getting to the final.
nadal should qualify unless he's still tired from wimbledon.
nalbandian's is defending champ so he won't go down without a fight.

Re: Which four will make it to the semi's?

I'm fairly certain Federer and Davydenko are going. Other two are more of a tossup I believe, but if Roddick can get his USOpen form back I'll go with him and probably Nadal. I simply have little respect for Robredo's game against the top 8, and Blake is just too inconsistant in big matches. Nalbandian's form has been terrible as of late and I'm not sure if Ljubicic has recovered in time.

Re: Which four will make it to the semi's?

Roddick has no chance of winning a single set in the group.
Everyone knows it. Regardless if they choose to admit it.

Federer
Roddick

Blake
Robredo (!)

I think FedEx will win all matches in his group, Roddick two, Nalbandian one, Ljubicic will be winless.
In the gold group both Blake and Robredo will win twice, Nadal and Davydenko once.
---------------------
Semi final
Federer def. Robredo
Blake def. Roddick

Final
Federer def. Blake in straights sets

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Tie-breaks
Aces

You really are disturbed. The Arse Clown contest ended months ago. Roddick has a winning record against Ljube AND Nalby. He will beat those two.

I would laugh if Robredo made it.
