its 100% that federer and nadal will be in the same half. This kinda sucks for fed bc had murray not withdrawn (most likely) then fed may have gone into murrays half which would almost have been a ticket to the finals with a chance of having to play nole who may have been dead and vulnerable after a 5 hour battle with nadull.
What you're saying is not true of Roland Garros... It has been a pattern for the USO, AO and Wimbledon...But Roland Garros has always had random draws... In all the years where Novak was always drawn in Roger's half in the English speaking slams (12 times out of 12), Novak was drawn twice in Rafa's half and twice in Roger's half in Roland Garros. That's 50-50.
There's absolutely no evidence to suggest that the French rig their draws.
I know I've said this before, but people keep putting RG in the same bag with all the other slams in spite of the stark contrast in their draws: it's not fair.
