Why would you want anyone in the finals other than the two best players in the tournament? I understand the desire to see new players emerge and that would be great. But for now, Nole and Bull appear to be a step above everyone else and that is what I want to see.
If a player reaches the final, it means he has bested the opponents he had to face. Thus, we have the best player from each half.

Tsitsipas vs Djokovic with Tsitsipas winning in 5 thrilling sets would be the best possible outcome. I mean you have a 20 year old next gen kid who gives really good and funny interviews and plays a style similar to Federer. He beats his idol in 4 really good sets, backs it up by winning a tough 4 set match against RBA, in which he didn't have his best stuff but found a way to win despite being down a break in the first 3 sets. If he beats Nadal and then Djokovic in back to back best of 5 matches to win his first title, that'd have to be the most impressive run in a slam that I've seen in a long long time.

Rafa vs. Nole would be the next sequel of a great blockbuster - also knowing we're nearing the end of the franchise, so we should enjoy these while they're still there (might be their last Slam final, who knows? In which case, historic for sure).
On the other side, Tsitsipas vs. Nole could be the first chapter of a legend-in-writing - if Tsitsipas ends up winning it, and later develops into an ATG (I don't think Raonic, Pouille or Nishikori have the same potential and could become ATG...).

Both cases could be a great final (well, if Nole would beat Tsitsipas in 3 short straights, maybe not that much - unless Nole later gets his second NCYGS this year).

Yeah, the difference there is Wawrinka hadn't shown progression or anywhere near the promise of Nishikori and Raonic. Nishikori has had his run and is turning 30 this year, Raonic 29.
So this means what exactly? Raonic looks like a boss from the back of the court (beating Zverev and Wawa) this tournament, is serving very well, and has been coming up to net effectively. He's either at or near his 2016 Wimbledon form.

I'm supposed to always want the #1 & #2 seeds in the final ? :oops: I virtually always root for an upset no matter what round or who is playing.***

And just because you came into the tournament as one of the two best doesn't mean you are one of the two best players "in the tournament." You could argue that by definition the two that make it to the finals are the two best "in the tournament." I've seen the Djoker-Nadal movie a few times. Its not that I don't like it but I wouldn't mind it at all if Tsitsy somehow got through though I think Nadal will crush him. Tennis could use a new star and Tsitsy makes an excellent candidate.

In summary, anyone but Muglos. :D
