    True, the draw isn't out yet, but I wanted to make up a draw from the quarters on based roughly on the current rankings. Make your own, or just comment on mine. Here it is:

    Quarterfinals
    Federer def. Cilic - 4 grueling sets
    Monfils def. Verdasco - Verdasco runs out of steam after his long clay season
    Ferrer def. Gulbis - 5 set thriller, multiple tiebreaks
    Nadal def. Roddick - 4 sets to the surprise of everyone.

    Semifinals
    Federer def. Monfils - straight sets just like always
    Nadal def. Ferrer - straight sets, Ferrer runs out of gas

    Finals
    Nadal def. Federer - Fueled by his recent win over him, Nadal takes back his crown in 4 sets

    Quaters:
    Federer Def Gonzalez in 3

    Nadal Def Gulbis in 5

    Semis:
    Federer Def Verdasco in 4
    Nadal Def Monfils in 5

    Final:

    Federer def Nadal in 4 ( Note: Nadal was tired by the last two 5 setters, So federer win over Nadal isn't legit....better to put an asterix beside this one like some people want for the 2009 Final)!

    @ OP, oh how I would love Cilic to actually do that well. He has better form in the slams than Masters tournys, but I doubt he'll make it that far.

    Are you kidding? Federer would straight set Soderling, Nadal would Straight set Gonzalez (winning non-tiebreaker sets too) and nadal would straight set Djokovic. It's so obvious that it's a Nadal vs Federer final.

    I think Soderling wants it. Bad.
    Gonzo is untested at the moment. But I'm seeing him as a bit more consistent than before. Still, he is badbadbadbadbad at TBs

    I want Nadal to win, but I hope you're right about Soderling (or anyone) defeating Federer.

    I lol'd at some of these predictions. Monfils beating Nadal in 5 sets? Right...

    The draw released makes those two quarter finals impossible.

    Gulbis would play Cilic in the 3rd round.


    Either way my quarter finals

    Fed v Soderling
    Murray v Tsonga
    Djokivic v Ferrer
    Nadal v Verdasco
