    Both players still have not lost a set.

    Djokovic leads H2H 10-2, both Stan's victories were in 2006.

    My prediction is Djokovic in 3, with one TB set.

    Novak must be playing with one eye closed to be bothered by Stan The Mediocre.

    Should be routine but Novak will have to be on his toes, just in case.

    Stan Wawrinka....usually a 4-6, 5-7 kind of guy. :lol:
    He needs 2 things to help him in this meeting with Djokovic. Extreme heat and the same ability and fight that he showed in his upset of Andy Murray at USO 2010. He needs to drag this out and fight Djokovic hard! Do not give up easy points.

    SW won't throw in a Tomic last set, so ND knows he has to turn up. Wonder if SW will come in a lot.

    i should vote for Novak, but something tells me this could be the 2nd upset of the Slam so far, after DelPotro's departure.

    Djokovic in 4. Something like 64 63 46 62. Stan hasn't won a set off him since 09 Vienna - so he's due.

    There is absolutely 0 expectation from Wawrinka in this match. And he won't dissapoint.

    Djokovic 6-2 6-4 6-3

    Are you serious? Not unless Cvac is beamed up by aliens is there any chance whatsoever he loses this match.

    i know it doesn't make sense to feel that Djokovic will lose, all reason says this should be business as usual for him, but it's just a feeling i have. like something is going to happen.

    Novak in 3 or 4, there will be some great play from Stan but Djoker will have TMD for him.

    Wawrinka loves to disappoint. People had a "similar feeling" before he played Federer in the AO QF 2 years ago... and he got routed.

    Wawrinka never offers anything. Never. Djokovic in 3 p1ss easy sets, something ala 6-2 6-3 6-2


    Cake draw!

    Djokovic is too comfortable and strong at this point. I can't see an upset

    It's called wishful thinking. Nothing wrong with that, just don't bet money on it :)

    Wawa lies down for the other Swiss guy. It will be a different story with Djoko. If Djoko plays like he has since the start of AO though, Wawa won't stand a chance, no matter what he does.

    Fed beats up on Tipsarevic and Djok on Stan. Probably a bagel set thrown in as well.
    Stan probably in no mood to do Fed any favors and take Djok out.

    The Wavrinka bh is a thing of beauty :) Give me a nice elegant 1hbh anyday over the ugly utilitarian effective 2h.

    Noel has hit something like 6 UE.

    That's more than he hit in all of 2011.
