AO roundup

With the AO living up to all the hype and more I thought i'd make it easier for you to discuss whats going on down under. First of all after the beating Rafa gave Haas I see many people now picking him to beat Murray. While I like this train of thinking you seem to forget that Rafa has to deal with either Simon or Monfils in the quarters, and was recently owned by Monfils at Doha. Monfils is looking really good and so is Simon. Theyve never met before and i have no idea how they would match up, but im hoping Monfils wins.

I also see there is some people saying Murray is going to win the tournament now. Id really like to know if you actually think Rafa can beat this Murray. I didnt watch either of their matches today so i cant tell for now. I wouldnt be surprised at all if the top four makes the semi's, with Murray and Roger going through to the finals. With the top four so strong men's tennis seemed to have become very predictable. While that makes for interesting viewing it can also become boring. Do you think thats good or bad?
