    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

    well, like many players robotically repeat in press conferences: you take match after match... ;)

    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.
