Also, looks like Djokovic will beat Monfils. This Djokovic kid is 19 and maybe too young to know any better. Is he playing unconscious enough to catch Rafa off guard?
I see some value in a few futures now the QF are pretty much solidified. Ancic, Davydenko, and Djokovic will all see some play from me.
I agree Ancic is playing brilliantly right now. He's had some terrific comebacks lately, and has the heart to trouble anybody. But although I think he's more than capable of taking Federer to 4-4 situations I question whether he will have the shots to counter Federer's mastery and volleying. It would be nice to see Ancic take at least a set, but I think Federer will use the match to demonstrate his ruthlessness, much like Nadal today.
Djokovic will not be able to beat Nadal. It just won't happen. Nadal will force so many errors from the young kid, and the pressure Djokovic will feel will result in double faults and missed opportunities. He's had an awesome tournament but the ride is about to come to an abrupt stop.
