2012 French Open Semis

So assuming Nole and Nadal remain in the top 2 , and and Fed and Murray round out the top 4 until RG, which semi draws would you like to see there?

Djurray- another 5 set epic? Djokovic has had more success on clay, but their last meeting on clay in Rome also went the distance.
Fedal- another predicable Fed-failure? Fed has never beaten Rafa here, and hasn't beat Rafa in a slam in a very very long time.

Nadurray- 3 losses in GS semis for Murray in 2011 and Rafa's stellar record at RG make this look like no contest, but their most recent meeting was won in impressive fashion by Murray and Nadal's string of loses to Djokovic might have caused lasting damage to his confidence.
Djederer Fed stopped Nole's streak here last year, but their other GS semi results have been all over the map.

Or none of the above. A spoiler for the final 4 in the semis?

Replace Murray with Monfils....

When is the last time Monfils made a semi though?

When was the last time Monfils played decent tennis full stop?

Ferrer might be able to beat one of these 4 on clay (well, not Rafa). And if Soderling is back he might throw a wrench in that semi somewhere.

Murray will lose anyway. No matter how you approach the problem.
