That was the year cillic won who he has just beaten so some symmetry but I don't see it.
My preference is del Potro, Nadal, nishakori, Novak.

If Del Porto doesn't choke his serve he will win. He's been so close to beating Nadal a few times recently only for his serve to go.

On the faster courts he should be able to over power him, should.

Barely an hour for a major semi final.
What a joke

Disappointing but great for Del Porto to get in another final. Hope he wins it. He will be around 300 points of number two if he does.

Nadals body failing is hardly new, must be bad for him to quit though.
At least del Potro will be fresh to take on Djokovic but doubt he will win.

Del Potro deserves another major, not just for his consistency this year but for coming back after all the injuries.
Deserve has little to do with it sadly.
Djokovic in 3 or 4 for me.

He just needs to go for it. Hit the lines and he will be good.

Not expended much energy then.
Still probably win.

Lost 6-2 in the first. Only 38% of first serves in-play, awful.

Good.
Women's game doesn't need Williams coming back and cleaning up again.
