Yeah, this post was just about projected seedings, and the 5-8 seeds will almost surely be the Delpo, Tomas, Jo and Ferrer.

In that scenario, ideally someone with weapons would take out Ferrer and make it to the QF to face Nole so we could have four great QFs. Maybe a big server like Isner and Raonic or a young gun having his breakthrough tournament.

Not Raonic or any other young gun, Isner is the only one who would cause Djokovic big trouble in Usopen.

Federer vs Tsonga

Nadal vs Del Potro



Djokovic vs Ferrer

Murray vs Berdych



Nole is my favorite top 4 player, so let him get Ferrer.
My last prediction turned out to be GOAT-like, so I'll try again.

I want:

Federer - Kohlschreiber
Ferrer - Monaco

Del Potro - Almagro
Murray - Cilic

Nadal - Fish
Tsonga - Isner

Berdych - Tipsarevic
Djokovic - Simon

My (bold and hugely biased) predictions: Federer to win it without dropping a set. Murray, Djokovic, and Nadal to lose in QFs or earlier. Somebody semi-unknown to become a first-time slam finalist.

My prediction is another Murray-Federer final if the draws allow it. 50-50 in the final.

Watch out for Del Potro, obviously.

That scenario is definitely good for tennis.

I kind of agree with this. Shame Soderling isn't around; with Tsonga and Berdych finally consistent, we could potentially end up having a really strong top 8 (with Soderling instead of Ferrer), with no easy QFs for anyone. But oh well.

NID that you'd want Federer to be with Ferrer.

It'd not be a bad draw overall by any means though, even though it's a bit too pro-Federer for my linking

The 8th position will be very interesting. Looking at the rankings, it seems that anyone from Almagro (defends 270 at Toronto/Cincinnati), Isner (d. 55), Monaco (d.55), Del Potro (d. 90), and Tipsarevic (d. 405) has a shot at it depending on their performances prior to the US Open.

Respectfully,

It will be Del Potro for sure. Not only is he #8 at the moment, he's also definitely improving on last year's performance in Toronto and Cincy. He's just in a totally different class compared to those other guys, he should and hopefully will be a top 8 seed.

I'd like to see either Tsonga or Del Potro take the US Open title this year.

Tsonga winning would be glorious for tennis.

Delpo too, but he has more time to do that. He's only 23 and by far the best player in the world under 25 years of age, he's bound to have many more chances in the future, not to mention he already has one.

If Jo wants to win a Slam, he needs to go on a run of crazy form soon.

Speaking of going on a crazy run, what the heck has happened to Mr. Berdych? It's like somebody forgot to wind him up before his matches lately? He really needs to get back on track. Does anyone know if he has been carrying any injury, or is it just a mental thing?

David Ferrer winning the USO would change the game.

Isner winning would be good for the game.

Anyone who hasn't before, really. The more differing slam winners there are, the more kids emulate their games. Meaning more variety in the next generation.

Mental problems, he's always been like that. If only Tsonga and Berdych could fuse into one, we'd have a hell of a player.

Give Jo Berdych's backhand and ROS and you have a Slam winner for sure.

Give Berdych Tsonga's serve and mentality/fearlessness and you have a Slam winner.


As it stands though, Jo has the worst backhand and ROS in top level tennis and Berdych is a mental midget of sorts with big serving woes, so both are merely outside contenders at best; they can win against anyone when on fire but more often that not complete players will be able to expose their weaknesses.

By the way, congratulations and commendations to everybody for keeping this thread's discussion positive. This is the way to do it. Make your predictions, and don't bash other people for their opinions or the players they like. Of course one can disagree, but as long as it is done with respect it makes all the difference. Well done so far...and thank you.
