Simple question, considering the draw. Here are the most probable without featuring any of Nadal/Fed/Novak/Stan:

Cilic vs. Nishikori USO Rematch
Cilic vs. Coric Battle of Croatia
Nishikori vs. Berdych....Because
Dimitrov vs. Nishikori LostGen
Dimitrov vs. Thiem ONE HANDERS UNITE!

Only 10 max options and didn't want to have too many 0 votes like I think Coric vs. Cilic might get.

I said most probable. Tsonga is less than 1% chance of making semifinals with that draw.
Ok, then Dimi vs Kyrgios. If you have Thiem vs Dimi option, then why not Nick :p


So Thiem killed the popular vote, the other 4 very much alive though.

I think after the Verdasco escape, Cilic might go further or might get pounced on by anyone looking at that tape. He should have lost.

Dimitrov vs. Nishikori is the most likely at this point.

Nishikori: Busta, Novak, Raonic
Dimitrov: Tiafoe, Berdych, Federer

Obviously both have a big challenge but if they get by it, well in Dimi's case that means he breaks Final and in Kei's case you'd think he beats Raonic.


Raonic vs. Dimitrov would be the final if we were living under pre-Big 3 timeline regulations.

It almost feels like most of those mentioned don't deserve to win a slam at this point.

With that in mind, Cilic vs. Coric. Cilic has actually won one and does sometimes really bring it to the table against the top guys. You could actually see him making the final too, unlike the others. As for Coric, he's a young guy with a few good wins who at least hasn't yet had a chance to continually disappoint year in, year out.
