It is rare, but it last happened not so long ago, in AO 2005. A pity number 2 and 3 seed don't meet in the SF :(

good to have a change...
1 v 3
2 v 4

maybe its not that rare for a GS...

but definately you cant see this very often in RG....

federer and nalbandian is consistent we know
nadal is king of clay so no surprise..

its actually surprising to see ljubicic can go this far on clay...
probably his draw help him a bit....

runnerup: 2nd seed
semifinalis: 3rd and 4th seed :p
