Who is that girl on the far right (purple shirt) in Noles box? Never seen her before.

Should they all play, then yes.
I mean he is guaranteed to face at least one for the title.
I feel that maybe Zed can lose before the SF. But I am almost 100% sure - Med will make the final.
I mean I'm happy to eat crow and be called out if Med does NOT reach the final. His draw has opened up.

No he is not. He is the fav, but there is no lock here for him to win it.

Of course - I mean should Novak get to the final.
What I'm saying is that if Novak is to win the grand slam - he will have to face at least one of Zed/Med to the title.
I cannot image Novak winning without facing Zed and Med. Especially Med.

Should Nishikori win here after only getting 2 games at the Olympics it would be the equivalent of Soderling beating Nadal at RG after winning just 1 game a few weeks before.

Novak is clearly feeling the pressure of chasing CGS. He is tight and that is why his footwork is off. He needs to get off to good start in second set to try and loosen up otherwise he is in for a very tough time to keep his dream alive.

The Nadal-Soderling match is nowhere close to this. Nishi isn't even playing that well - and won the set because Novak was at his E- game.
Soderling in 2009 R4 vs Nadal played one of the best clay matches ever seen. Yes, Nadal was injured, but even then Soderling played an absolute blinder. Masterclass of aggression, dominance and even movement/defense.
