Does the top half of the quarters and the semi's hold any more twists
of fate... I still have this nagging feeling that either Feds or Rafa
are not going to get into the final... though... one of them will...

So which one?

Personally, I want a Rafa-Roger final... #1 vs. #2... the best of
their time... head to hear on hc...

Come on, Roddick is Fed's Pigeon. Who are we kidding? Roddick knows
it, Fed knows it. I don't think Roddick can even take a set.

Nadal is more susceptible to defeat on hard court irrespective of his
recent improvements.

Could easily be Tsonga vs. Federer.

Everybody is writing off the Simon but there's no reason that he
couldn't give Nadal trouble. They both have great defence. Nadal is
favoured but don't forget what Tsonga did to him last year. Could be
a repeat if the two face off in the semi.

I somehow doubt Federer will lose to Roddick but Roddick is playing
very well. I think Djoko is a better match for Roddick even when
Djoko is fit just because he has less variety and Federer plays with
such guile against Roddick.

Could be Tsonga's year.

Anybody else think that Nadal is starting to look kind of rough? I
was watching him early on and he looks like a guy who's been living on
coca cola and french fries. I guess the heat will do that to you.
