We all know that every draw is an independent event,which means that there is 50% probability that Djokovic may land in Rafa's side of the draw. But the probability that Nole lands on the same side of Fed's draw 4 times in a row at the Aussie Open is just***.I mean "randomly"4 times in a row!!! We need something different next year. Are these draws really random?

Does this have something to do with Djok always landing on Nadals side of the draw at FO or is this unrelated?

Both draws are obviously rigged. Why the ATP insists on putting Nole in Rafa's half at the FO and in Fed's draw at the AO is still a mystery.

We all know that every thread is an independent event,which means that there is 50% probability that ******** threads may appear in the general pro player discussion of the board. But the probability that 2 ******** threads lands on the same day in a row is just***.I mean "randomly"2 times in a row!!! We need something different next year. Are these threads really necessary?

Idiots all over the place...The draws are not rigged. They are done live with tons of people standing around and it is random. Just the way it turns out. Get over it people. Do we really need two of these idiotic threads?

Yes just like drawing like the 4th seed then 3rd, 4th and then 3rd again in that order. Same chance it will happen.

I know, I'm just joking. I just found it funny that the guy who made the other thread got mad that Joker is consistently on Rafa's side of the draw at the FO but is oblivious to the fact that he's consistently on Roger's side at other tourney's.

Anyone that jumped on the TC for this thread, please move over to the french open thread and say how it is random. kthxbye

Gosh darn it, and TWO times in a row at US Open. And thrice in a row at Miami, then Montecarlo then Rome! It's rigged both ways!
