Good Monte Carlo semis

Ok, I know that Djoke hasn't won yet, however I cannot' see a surprise in his match vs Querrey (jinx). So it would make 1-2-3-4 semis. When was the last time when in the semis we saw 1-2-3-4 players in the world ?

Re: Good Monte Carlo semis

French Open 2006, maybe something later

BTW, pity that Gasquet lost and Youzhny was injured, it could've been 8 top seeded in QF, which would be a great exception to the rule that unknown players go far in clayevents

Heh, i forgot about that Ljubo's famous road to a semifinal with wins over numbers: 82, 131, 103, 79 and 95. But it was not his fault after all :)

Yes - that must have been the last time - RG'06

That's exactly the point, genius. If it weren't a weak era, other players would have made the semis, especially clay specialists.
Yeah. It's rare for me to agree with GM, and I'm not a fan of the weak era argument, but yours was a foolish comment zcess81. The top 4 making the semis backs the weak era viewpoint.

Unless you meant that the fact this happens so seldom disproves the weak era claim. In which case I agree whole-heartedly and am in the unusual situation of agreeing with you.

anyone can beat anyone

but after #7 (Nalby) there is a big gap to Blake, Gasquet and the rest for now...

Blake vs. Nadal 3-2
Blake vs. Ferrer 1-0
Blake vs. Nalbandian 1-0
Blake vs. Davydenko 6-0

(Roddick 2-6, Federer 0-8 though)
