Blake in Rafa's quarter. Again.

Tsonga in the fourth round.

Nah we all know Nole will get the golden slam. He's the GOAT, i'm not bothering believing in Rafa's chances.

Average draw for Rafa. Tsonga or Mathieu in R16. Blake or Gasquet in QF. Nole is in his half.

Fair enough.

I'm not a natural born optimist by a long shot by the way.

LOL.

Its not too bad.

Blake might not even make it that far, he could lose to Gasquet, and Richie is cannon fodder for Rafa. Tsonga is lacking match play. Nadal owns Lopez.

OK I think I'll include the revised picks in a 2nd table so that we can compare the before and after predictions.

Jonathan, these things don't matter. I thought you had learned your lesson about making such sweeping statements, considering Rafa's hardcourt "form" (or lack of it)

Can't see him making the semis, in all seriousness.
