    Davydenko? He sucks on grass. Has only won 2 or 3 grass matches in his career.

    I wonder what Davydenko's draw would have to look like for him to make the semis.

    I don't think it's possible... lol.

    How sweet would it be to have Federer, Roddick, Hewitt, and Safin in the semi's. I think it was 2004 these guys were ranked 1, 2, 3, 4 awsome year.

    How the hell some of y all puts Davydenko in their list although the guy has an awful record on grass (2-12), that's pathetic.
    He sucks on grass.

    last year saying rafa would make the finals would have been ridiculous. it is less about how your game matches up with a specific surface, and more about how well you are playing and how much confidence you have that you can win.

    how else could agassi ever have won wimby and then gotten to the final again later in his career.

    how did courier win the french open and then make the finals of wimby 2 weeks later?? he is certainly not someone you would pick to come up big on the grass. but somehow he did it, he beat a pure serve volleyer in the semis(edberg) and then actually took a set off of pete in the final. how? he was supremely confident, probably more so than any other player in the world at the time.

    No. Roddick can't be in that list.

    He should be replaced by Nadal. These are the only 4 players with multiple GS crowns. Roddick only has 1 USO, not there yet. lol.

    It's got nothing to do with how many GS they possess.

    Besides Roddick > Nadal on grass.

    I read in the paper that Davydenko's coach suggested he quit the grass season all together so he doesn't just get dissapointed. He has very little chance of reaching the semis.

    Nadal was never a #1 :D, all others were.

    seriously 2004 was an amazing year, there just something about those 4 guys.
