If you could do the draw and put players where you wanted them, how would you do it? Obviously, doing 128 can get pretty complicated so let's just do it for the seeds. Remember to follow the draw rules. Here's mine:


1. Roger FEDERER (SUI)
27. Nicolas KIEFER (GER)
19. Nicolas ALMAGRO (ESP)
13. Stanislas WAWRINKA (SUI)

9. James BLAKE (USA)
20. Lleyton HEWITT (AUS)
25. Dmitry TURSUNOV (RUS)
7. David NALBANDIAN (ARG)

6. Andy RODDICK (USA)
28. Gilles SIMON (FRA)
22. Fernando VERDASCO (ESP)
10. Marcos BAGHDATIS (CYP)

16. Radek STEPANEK (CZE)
23. Tommy ROBREDO (ESP)
26. Ivan LJUBICIC (CRO)
4. Nikolay DAVYDENKO (RUS)

3. Novak DJOKOVIC (SRB)
29. Andreas SEPPI (ITA)
21. Juan Carlos FERRERO (ESP)
14. Paul-Henri MATHIEU (FRA)

12. Andy MURRAY (GBR)
24. Jarkko NIEMINEN (FIN)
31. Feliciano LOPEZ (ESP)
5. David FERRER (ESP)

8. Richard GASQUET (FRA)
30. Gael MONFILS (FRA)
17. Mikhail YOUZHNY (RUS)
11. Tomas BERDYCH (CZE)

15. Fernando GONZALEZ (CHI)
18. Ivo KARLOVIC (CRO)
32. Michael LLODRA (FRA)
2. Rafael NADAL (ESP)

I know this doesn't really mean anything but I just thought it would be fun.

Nole fan?

Not especially but I kinda see what you mean. I think it's pretty fair though. Ferrero made the QFs and Mathieu made the 4R last year which is certainly stronger than I made Fed's quarter.

It's not fair at all :lol:

Nadal's quarter is a nightmare.

Oh, I'm going to do one of these later, but our OP certainly did give Nadal a brutal quarter.

Did you even read my thread title or the introduction? How about you make your own draw instead of just criticizing mine? That was the intent of this thread in the first place. :confused:

As for Nadal's draw, Gonzo, Llodra and Karlovic might give him some trouble but he beat Ivo last week. Next would be Youzhny, Gasquet or Berdych and they've all played like crap lately. Plus, he beat Berdych and Youzhny here last year anyway. :wavey:

Yes, I read it. I was just wondering why you gave Djokovic such an easy draw, and then you said you thought your draw was "fair". I was just pointing out that it wasn't :shrug:

What I didn't say is that Nole draws Soderling 1st round, and the winner of Isner/Ancic in the 2nd.

I think Linda's draw is impossible anyway because both 15 and 16 are in the top half. I assume 1/2, 3/4, 5/6 and so on are all in opposite halves of the draw.

Don't think so.

I think it is R3:

1-8 vs 25-32
9-16 vs 17-24

R4:

1-4 vs 13-16
5-8 vs 9-12

QF:

1-4 vs 5-8

I'm pretty sure Seppi and Mathieu could beat Almagro and Wawrinka on grass. Ferrero, I admit, is suspect but he took a set off of Federer last year at Wimbledon. Kiefer and Mathieu are probably the best of the six. I feel that those two could beat any of the guys I put in Nadal's quarter. Whatever. It's all just speculation and opinions anyway.

No, even with the bonus points for grass Roddick is too far back. The seeds were announced today. There's a thread somewhere.

It's hard to make a truly even draw, I think. I'm not sure how well I did or didn't do, but I think I gave Roger a tough go, considering he's the person I'd most want to win. I was careful to be kind to Rafa, too.
