Default Big 4 in the semis?

A couple of years ago they would pretty much have this every slam. Even Murray made the French one year.

However it's been well over a year now. Between Nadal and Murray missing slams through, and Federer going out in the Quarter finals several times, we've not had this lineup in a long time.

IMO, there is nothing better for hardcore fans than a semi final Friday featuring all of the big 4.


Let's hope it happens next week.

LOL.

No.

Hardcore fans do not want a big 4 Friday in slams.

The big 4 can only all make the semis if we see a Nadal/Ferrer quarter.

You mean hardcore gloryhunters and casuals, right? Yes, for those, I suppose there's nothing better than the so-called 'Bi g 4' SF lineup.

It was becoming boring as hell but unfortunately it became even worse with Ferrer as replacement. Things might get better from now on.

We haven't seen the big 4 in the semis together that much, really. USO2008, AO2012, USO2011.

Ferrer has made more of the past 4 semis than Federer. Give me a Haas, Hewitt, Kohli, Youzhny semi lineup.
