When, oh when, will tennis stop this odd/even draw? This is what can happen, when the semi-finals match is considered the de-facto final. How hard is it to do? Every other sport I can think of has it (assuming the 4 top teams/seeds make it ) 1v4 and 2v3. I understand that the seeding is "random" but something like 16 of the last 21 GS have had a potential Fed-Dkojer semi while Nadal gets the dud Murray. People have a hard time believing it's random anymore.
