    The draw may not have come out yet, but what do you guys think would be a good draw from the quarters on? Realistic, or just a personal wish, I'm kinda curious. Here's mine:

    Quarterfinals
    Nadal def. Soderling - straight sets, maybe a tiebreak or 2
    Roddick def. Djokovic - 5 sets of fantastic tennis from both
    Murray def. Tsonga - straight sets decimation, maybe a love set
    Federer def. Berdych - 4 sets similar to last years quarterfinal, Fed avenging

    Semifinals
    Roddick def. Nadal - 4 sets similar to the Miami semi from last year. Roddick playing go-for-broke
    Murray def. Federer - 5 sets where Murray finally shows he can beat Fed well

    Finals
    Roddick def. Murray - 5 sets of Roddick amped up for a non-Fed final, and Murray trying to win in front of his home crowd.

    There you have it. Realistic? Not really, but it's certainly possible.

    I just want to see a nadal roddick semi, these two have been the best players in wimbledon along side federer in the last 5 years but have never played.

    Wishful thinking!

    Quarters
    Nadal def. Soderling - straight sets
    Djokovic def. Roddick - 4 sets of good tennis from Djok (and Roddick intermittently), 1 tiebreak won by Rod
    Murray def. Tsonga - 4 sets, blazing tennis from Tsonga at the start but Murray pushes and prods his way through
    Federer def. Berdych - 4 sets similar to last years quarterfinal

    Semifinals
    Nadal def. Djokovic - 4 sets, Djokovic blasts thru the second but Rafa holds on
    Murray def. Federer - 5 sets where Murray finally shows he can beat Fed well

    Final
    Nadal def. Murray - straight set beatdown

    Roddick vs Murray final would be entertaining if Roddick plays anything like 09!

    the draw isn't even out yet, but chances are that Roddick and Djokovic will be in the same quarter.

    Roddick would have to turn the clock back and play similarly to 2003/2004 to take Murray out.

    I'm pretty sure the final will be Murray vs Federer with Federer winning. Murray will take out Nadal in the semis.

    Why are you so sure? It could just as easily be a Fedal semi.

    *Enter consipracy theorists explaining how draws are rigged.........







    But in all seriousness I doubt the OP's scenario will turn out. Federer and Nadal are the clear favourites here. Murray is third after winning Queens. After that I see no one; Djokovic is clearly capable on any surface but I haven't seen him on grass for a year. I've already mentioned Roddick will need to address and revamp his forehand mecnhanics if he wants a Wimbledon title.

    I don't think the organizers would do that. Although I guess it would give Murray a better chance so I don't know. But still, I'm gonna stick with Murray taking out Nadal in the semis and then losing to Federer in the final.
