Tommy Haas is currently up a set and a break on Djokovic. I can't root against Djokovic because, like Simon, he's one of my favs, but having said that, if Haas takes him out, Simon has a much better chance against him than Djokovic. Furthermore, if he were then able to beat Haas, he'd have to face either Ferrer or Melzer in the semis. Probably Ferrer but at least it wouldn't be the usual Federer or Murray. He'd have an actual shot at another Masters 1000 final.
I know i'm getting way ahead of myself but that scenario is very possible at the moment.
