    Now Nadal and Murray are no. 3 and no. 4 respectively, they can't get drawn in the semifinals.

    The potential match-ups are;

    Fed vs Nadal
    Fed vs Murray

    and

    Djoko vs Nadal
    Djoko vs Murray

    If you're a Nadal fan, we know who you want your butt-picking hero to face in the SF of Slams...

    If you're a Murray fan do you want your weepy, fake hypochondriac hero to face?

    Murray vs Djokovic for US Open 2012 semis.

    They are quite evenly matched on hardcourts. (E.g. Aussie Open 2012)

    If Djokovic slips in the match, its Murray's match.

    Looking at all the records and the variation in SF's this year, I'd say:

    Murray vs Djokovic
    Federer vs Nadal

    If Murray wants to make a statement that he wants the USO, who better than beating Djokovic who's beaten Fed/Nadal there before.

    The Federer/Djokovic h2h at USO is 3-2. Only once have they met in a final + the last 2 matches both players have had match points so they deserve another final if they can get it.

    Would also love to see Federer vs Nadal USO match.

    If all things are equal, Nadal and Djokovic should be playing together from now on in Semis. If that doesn't happen, then we can be positive that the draws are rigged as hell.

    Sorry mate - but that's a load of old bollocks. Previous draws should have no bearing on future draws. Roger can just as easily draw Nadal as he can Murray.

    Would anyone be surprised if we got a Fed/Djokovic semi despite them being ranked and seeded 1 and 2?

    I sure as hell wouldn't - tournie organizers have no shame.

    That's the isht I'm talking about. The damn ATP should be held responsible for the poor favorite like pairings they keep doing. It's not fair to the players who have worked to try and advance and separate themselves from previous pairings. Now that Rafa and Nole are 2 and 3, let them duke it out in the semis for a change. That NEVER happens.
