In some different circumstances, that would not be much far away

so will Pics. Possibly a first where this particular match-up situation has arisen? (probably not)

Three of my four favorites are on the list, two in the win section (Federer and Nadal) and one (Juan Carlos Ferrero) who at least made the quarterfinals. Hopefully "Pics" will make the list tomorrow.
