Well, now your most feared player for Rafa next.
I can't wait to see both Verdasco/Tsonga & Nadal/Simon...

Can't even wait hours to have Federer/Del Potro & Djokovic/Roddick.

This is by far the most unpredictable QF (I mean all matches) I've for
a long time at slam.
Unpredictable because of the very high quality that EVERY player still
in can play.
And we have allready seen them playing spectacular tennis; so high
hopes for few epic matches to come!


Share & Enjoy,
Manolo

At least, that's clear.
I agree on most of your bets.

I expect different scorelines...
Easy win for Fed over ARod is ok.

Murray Verdasco might be closer, Verdasco is on fire since DC last
point... He's lefty as well, who knows?

I hope Tsonga to blast Blake quickly (maybe 4 quick sets yet)

Rafa / Gonzo is too much depending on Gonzo's fitness... I remember
Gonzo ousting Rafa two years ago, so again, who knows?

Simon vs Monfils is a tricky one: both players declared to the french
press that their match is likely to be a long one... hard to give a
winner, and a score, knowing that!

Murray / Tsonga, rooting for Tsonga, obviously... I always prefer
champaigne to alka-setzer!

Nadal / Simon... well I feel that both Monfils & Simon have the will
to imitate Bartoli, and kick off the #1. Both have proved to be able
to... at minor events (same problem as Berdych / Federer).
It takes something special to kill Nadal at slams... Yet Rafa still
has the pressure of "earning" his #1 (as Djoker to defend his crown)
by winning something, let's see how he can handle the biggest target
spotted on his shirt.

Fed / DelPoty should be the real test for JM... can go out quick &
badly, the same way as Murray USO

Roddick over Djoker, yep! Nole seems very unconfortable with the
defense of the crown, an out-of-matches Baghdatis put him under
serious pressure... He seems more vulnerable than usual.

At least, that's clear.
I agree on most of your bets.

I expect different scorelines...
Easy win for Fed over ARod is ok.

Murray Verdasco might be closer, Verdasco is on fire since DC last
point... He's lefty as well, who knows?

I hope Tsonga to blast Blake quickly (maybe 4 quick sets yet)

Rafa / Gonzo is too much depending on Gonzo's fitness... I remember
Gonzo ousting Rafa two years ago, so again, who knows?

Simon vs Monfils is a tricky one: both players declared to the french
press that their match is likely to be a long one... hard to give a
winner, and a score, knowing that!

Murray / Tsonga, rooting for Tsonga, obviously... I always prefer
champaigne to alka-setzer!

Nadal / Simon... well I feel that both Monfils & Simon have the will
to imitate Bartoli, and kick off the #1. Both have proved to be able
to... at minor events (same problem as Berdych / Federer).
It takes something special to kill Nadal at slams... Yet Rafa still
has the pressure of "earning" his #1 (as Djoker to defend his crown)
by winning something, let's see how he can handle the biggest target
spotted on his shirt.


***

Simon has a shot at Nadal.
Monfils doesn't.

From my standpoint (Fed-Rafa final) I'd rather see Monfils coming through
b/c I believe he isn't consistant enough to beat Rafa in best of 5. Or
mentally strong.

Simon is, otoh, a nasty oponent.

if murray can't recover that is the only way fed will win. I've been
shitting myself over the prospect of nadal/muzz s/final
I hope one of them can agree to w/o so the other can go in fresh and
destroy fed in the final.

Yeah, that really stands out - Murray is going to recover from a 5-set semi
with a 10-8 fifth set against Nadal and straight set Fed who had a cakewalk in
the sf?
