Draw comes out soon, what are the odds we'll see yet another Djokovic-Federer / Nadal-Murray semifinal draw?

I really really hope not. Though I don't subscribe to the theory the draw is fixed (there's a 50/50 chance every time of Novak/Roger...) I'm sick of that match up as well as the Murray/Nadal match up in slam semis - I really want to see a Murray/Djokovic semi - think he'd do a lot better in a semi than he did in the final last year. It also allows the opportunity of the one slam final we haven't seen - Murray/Nadal - we've had Murray/Djokovic, Murray/Federer, Federer/Djokovic, Federer/Nadal...

Also as a Nadal fan I think Federer's an easier option than Murray right now. ;)

The only thing that could happen is the ITF is sick of seeing nadal never meet federer anymore and fed losing to djoker in a semi when that is being some of the best match quality of 2011. If they follow this reasoning, they could PUT fed in nadal's half. But otherwise NO WAY IN HELL IS FED IN NADAL HALF.

The safest thing is to know nadal will never play tsonga or berdych in a qf. He always draws ferrer instead and occasionaly fish.


fed will get tsonga, nole gets berdych almost 90% sure if it changes they will just swap qf opponesnts.

I strongly feel Rafa and Roger will be drawn in the same half this time around. My spidey sense has been tingling all day today and cant wait for the draw in about 90 minutes. I am excited about this tournament - hell I cant even wait for the draw. I hope Rafa's half open play on the first day so I could watch it on a relaxing long weekend sunday evening US. Would love Rafa Vs Tomic first day night match. :)

Before that FO 2008.

So basically since Djokovic reached his first slam final only three times they have been in opposite sides: USO 2007, FO 2008 and FO 2010.
The probability is quite insane.
So I am guessing it will be Fed vs Djokovic again this time.

If not today, when then? I mean today is Friday 13th so that's the day for sth special to happen, e.g. putting Fedal in one half.
