wow federer's quarter looks very similar to last year's, the only challenge being stepanek (in the sense that he beat fed already this year).... perhaps it's davydenko's turn to try and win a match against Fed?

Top quarter looks extremely difficult.... and what's with putting 3 of 4 black guys in the same eighth? I would love to see Monfils and Nadal meet in a final.... hate seeing some of my favourites (rafa, nalby,monfils, young etc) all bunched up like that.... ferrer has a chance at a repeat....

Nadal doesn't have Djoko but seems as if he has everyone else who could cause him trouble (Tsonga just had surgery so I don't count him, surprised he's in the draw).....

Actually the entire top half looks pretty rough....

Thank you for posting this Craig.... much appreciated

So strange to see Nadal's name at the top and Federer's at the bottom. I guess that's proof of how long it's been the other way around.
