They won't so it's not an issue. Don't really see the need for there to be a nationality element to be honest.

Basically means Nadal can draw Tsonga/Berdych/Tipsarevic in the quarters - chances of a "bad" draw (Tsonga/Berdcyh) go up to 66% from 50% if Ferrer was still an option. Similarly Novak can't get Tipsy - only Tsonga/Berdych/Ferrer - again chances of a bad draw 66% for him now rather than 50%. Murray has a bad record against Berdych and had a tough match vs Ferrer so really he'd probably prefer Tsonga or Tipsy - guess we'll have to see.

Really annoyed Del Po hasn't done something to get his ranking up and surpass Tipsy - he'll now be a tricky 4th round for someone. Though he wasn't that great on the grass at Wimby so who knows how much of a threat he'll be.

So far Fed seems like clear favourite - best of 3, likely to be indoors a lot of the time (won't stop raining in London!) - only 2 big threats - Nole/Nadal - one of which he can only meet in the final. If he gets Berdych/Tsonga then potentially the upset in the QF could happen.

I'd be happiest for the quarters to be: Fed/Berdych; Murray/Tsonga; Nole/Ferrer; Rafa/Tipsy.... Think Berdych would do better than Tsonga vs Fed as Tsonga makes too many stupid decisions. Berdych on the whole has been solid this year.
