AO2010: Which SF pairings amongst the top 4 would you prefer?

Hey, so as the title says, assuming the top 4 seeds [1. federer, 2. nadal, 3. djokovic, 4. del potro]
all make it to the SF stage, which SF match-up BETWEEN THE TOP 4 would you like to see? or if you don't want to see any of the top 4 in the SF, list which SF match-ups you would like to see instead.

Vote in the poll, and discuss. :)

Yeh sure, go ahead and list the other match-ups you would also like to see, i think it will start spicing up in the QF as StatRacket rightly mentioned. ;)

I think what makes this Australian Open so appealing is the potential quarter-final match ups as well. With Murray, Davydenko, Roddick and Soderling seeded 5-8, the Australian Open 2010 is set to ignite from the quarters onwards. I remember in previous years' Grand Slams it was all about which half Djokovic would be placed in, so it's much more exciting now.

I would like Federer to play del Potro in the semi-final assuming they both make it that far. Going back to the quarters, I would love for Murray to be in Djokovic's quarter (as they have never played in a Grand Slam), as well as Davydenko in Federer's. Also Roddick in del Potro's and Soderling in Nadal's quarter.

Where is Murray in this poll?

01-10-2010, 10:47 AM
murray is going to be seeded fifth

Federer vs Del Potro
Nadal vs Djokovic

Though either way, would love both sets of semi finals.

01-10-2010, 11:32 AM
The second option for sure. Fed VS Delpo, Rafa VS Nole

01-10-2010, 11:54 AM
None. I would like to see semi-final pairings without any of top-4 players.

It will not happen though, I'm pretty sure that at least two (or even three) of them will make semis.

01-10-2010, 12:02 PM
Fed vs Delpo, Rafa vs Nole
For sure

01-10-2010, 12:39 PM
I would love these semifinals:

Davydenko vs Del Potro
Nadal vs Djokovic

01-10-2010, 02:03 PM
As a Rafa fan I'd not see him beating either JMDP or Djokovic in the semi-finals on a hard court at this time so I'd quite like him to avoid both!

That said, if I had to choose then Fed v JMDP, Rafa v Djok.

01-10-2010, 02:08 PM
Federer vs Murray
Djokovic vs Davydenko

Del Potro vs Roddick
Nadal vs Soderling

01-10-2010, 06:19 PM
Soderling v Murray, Roddick v Davydenko please. For the SFs.
