I like that McEnroe is playing in long pants. Way to bring the retro, J-Mac!

I'm going with Clijsters in 2, Murray in 3, Serena in 3, Nadal in 4, Del Potro in 3, and Tsonga in 3.

Weird that Tsonga and Gonzalez have never played before. Hard to predict the Nadal match. I think he can tough out one more match, then that may be it for him.

LOL. Two hams on the court, one a Serbian Shank, and the other a New York Butt end.... :)

Good on Benito for the PR - Novak needs it.

JMac is such an attention-loving dude.

If no Rafa, I would love to see a Djoko-Murray final. Or a Verdasco in there. Vamos, Nando! You need to find your AO form.
