    What do you think it will be?

    Djokovic will be seeded 1
    Federer will be seeded 2
    Murray will be seeded 3
    Nadal will be seeded 4

    I think we'll likely have Djokovic/Murray on one side of the draw and Federer/Nadal on the other.

    No. Unless one of the top 4 does not play.

    Federer is unlikely to win AO again, so I'm hoping for a Nadal-Djokovic SF; just because I've seen enough finals between them for a while.

    I'd like to see how the 'new' Murray matches up with Nadal.

    I was asking for Draw predictions, not to predict seedings. My OP wasn't very clear, my apologies.

    Well, assuming the draw is rigged, they are gonna put FED-RAFA in same half just like this year (without raising doubts 1-3 and 2-4) ;)

    At this point, there is no guarantee Nadal will be ready for AO. It could definitely be Ferrer instead.

    Which, as usual, is a ridiculous assumption.

    Murray will have by far the hardest draw on paper, and then a series of shocks will give him a dolly to the semis. Tsonga will be in his quarter again, at least until he flames out unexpectedly. Federer in semi, murray avenges loss and gets to final, losing to joker (unless it's windy).

    Fed will get the usual free pass with clement in the last 16 and Tipsy as his qf opponent.

    Ferrer will be in same quarter as del potro, and will lose. The big man is box office and the organizers would love him in the semis.

    Joker will get his pigeon Birdshyte, followed by a marathon match against del potro, where del potro wins first 2 sets and then runs out of steam.

    Ralph won't be there.

    According to the live rankings Ferrer is less than 400 points behind Rafa. If Rafa skips Qatar (where he is defending a SF) and Ferrer wins a tournament before the Aussie Ferrer could be seeded number 4 even if Nadal does play. I do not think that scenario likely but Rafa has not locked up the #4 seed. It would be very interesting if Nadal ends up seeded 5th. But the odds are slim to none of that anyway. If Rafa does not play the AO though Ferrer will get to #4....which would make an interesting French Open.

    Part of me wants to see an unseeded Nadal tear through every single top player in the world at Roland Garros someday. That will be a sight!

    It will look exactly the same as it does today. However, it is possible that the final of now, is then a first round. But the sight will be no different.

    Maybe the 3rd and 4th seeds will be Janowicz and Rosol respectively.

    I don't think he's going to play in the Australian Open. Looks like he might withdraw.
