Of 8 quarter-finals, it seems to me, Del Portro has the worst draw.
In order for him to win FO, most likely, he had/has to beat
Marin Cilic, Berdych, Federer, Novak, Nadal - that's humanly impossible.

Tsonga 2nd worst.
Wawrinka, Novak, Federer, Nadal - Impossible.

Murray:
Gasquet, Ferrer, Nadal, Novak/Federer - If he beats Ferrer, I don't think he could win back to back against Nadal and Novak.

Federer:
Delp Portro, Novak, Nadal - very tough, requires superman mental strength.

Nadal - easiest
Monaco, Almagro, Murray, Novak/Federer
Nadal being #1 seed at FO is better protected.

Life is unfair?! If Del Portro wins FO, he should definitely be super proud of himself.

Life isn't unfair-it's more about being good in the first place so everything appears easier and being not as good so everything appears harder

So you think it's possible for Fed to beat nadal in a best of 5 on clay? thats practically impossible too unless nadal plays sub par

Of course, jakemcclaim would tell you that you forgot to look at the opponents of the eventual winner, ie David Ferrer... ;)

I wonder which of the top 4 seeds had to play the world number 43 in Round 2.
