A totally lame and predictable draw.

Here's an article by Peter Bodo explaining the lack of logic in the draws.

I wish all the slams would use Wimbledon's process of seeding. For examnple, for clay, Rafa should clearly be the #1 seed, and Roger #2. The #3 seed should be in the same side as #2, and the #4 seed in the same side as #1.

Oh well. Vamos Rafa!

Last time Djokovic was in Fed's half, this time in Nadal's so all is fair :)

Further down it doesn't matter - if Nadal somehow fails to win it will be Roger or Nole...

Cate said...

Roger has the easier road again. Pfft.

Oh well. As long as we still see Roger and Rafa in the finals. That's the only way Rafa can keep his #2 ranking.

Helen W said...

Actually I think it would have been fair if Rafa had got Nole in AO, and Roger got him in FO. They got it exactly backwards :)

Actually I think Raja's draw is sorta hard... Querrey is good on clay, and Seppi is not bad also.

But Rafa having Djokovic in his half is unfortunate.
