Using rankings 1-128 (in effect, disregarding qualifying and wildcards) dated on January 8, I have computer-generated an alternate draw for the Australian Open.

Also point out some interesting potential matchups, etc. Anyway, here's the draw, all four quarters in four posts:

So what do you think? Anything to say about it? Any predictions of who would reach the final, who would win, who might have an interesting match-up, etc.?

what do you mean by computer generated draw?
did you put all their strengths, and weaknesses or something into some formula and let the computer calculate the probabilty of them winning and so on? or what?

You have too much free time...

(And not to make this a pointless comment...Safin takes out Dlouhy :-) Oh yes, and...Federer wins)

It doesn't matter what the draw is as far as Fed is concerned. Example: he had super hard draw at 2006 Wimbledon and he still gets to final w/o losing a set.
