T-Berd certainly has shown he is more than capable of giving the #1 in the world fits. Still, I'm reluctant to say this will go the distance. Novak's game is just so air tight. Tomas will have to blast winners consistently or I feel Nole will edge him on most rallies. I'll say Djokovic in 4.

Novak in 3, and 4 if he goes on a walkabout. He's serving well and returning ridiculously well.

I think that's probably right. I didn't see any of Berdych's match today...anyone have an opinion on it?

Voted for Berdych in 5. I believe the surface plays for his game a little bit.

I think Novak has too much for Berdy in this one, although it'll resonate a little back to the 2010 flop by Novak. This time he'll take care of it in four...

Berdych could surprise, this match-up it's interesting when you look past the lopside number and realize Berdych seems to always manage to put himself in position to win sets or even matches.

It's between Novak and Murray and it seems this is the only QF worth watching.

I just can't see Tomas besting Nole on the grass this year. It would take a superlative performance mixed with an off day by Novak. I don't see it happening.

Virgil Cane is the name ...

The score sounds about right.

Djokovic is playing at his best level (as he says better than his 2011 level). But I would like to see Berdych come out to play his best through five sets and make this match very interesting.
It will take monumental efforts to take out Djoko this time.

Has not been mentioned a lot so far. But Djokovic serve has been outstanding. He had 16 aces against Haas, and starts with one against Berdych.

This is a dangerous match for Novak if T-Berd gets in a good service rhythm. T-Berd has no chance against Novak at the other slams but this one has upset potential though I do think Nole will win. This one figures to be his toughest match before the finals.

Bad shot selection.

We need the chatfunction now. I want to discuss Del Potro too.

Already 4 aces in two games.
