Federer & Nadal have had fairly identical matches so far. Federer vs. his former nemesis should be very intriguing. Will Federer be tight in knowing he has just one more round before meeting his current nemesis? Or will be too fresh for Nalbandian?

Likewise, Nadal and Ljubicic have had very close matches. Will Ljubicic play dark horse and pull out a victory on clay?

I think both fav will move on.

Huge hype , tv ratings $$ and fans also want it.


Odds to win it all right now :-

RAFAEL NADAL -138
ROGER FEDERER +156


I would love to bite on Roger for $1000 right now.

Maybe more in live betting :)

What's the fifth set Nalbandian has dropped? I remember 1 to Gasquet, 2 to Tursunov, and 1 to Davydenko.

A typo: You wrote "Djokovic" for "Ljubicic".
