Yeah, that's what I mean. If Nadal is 3 and Fed 4, or Fed 3 and Nadal 4 it doesn't make any difference because they'd be on opposite sides of the draw and which side they end up on will be determined randomly. So in either case they'd both have 50/50 chance of ending up in Djoker or Andy's half.
Is it possible for Nadal to drop to 5? That's the question.
