The draw is up! Top players in Rafa’s quarter are Tursunov, Berdych, Nalbandian, Monfils, Safin, Melzer and Del Potro. Top players in the rest of his half are Djokovic, Schuettler, Stepanek, Wawrinka, Ferrer, Fish, Kiefer and Roddick. Over all, it looks like a pretty good draw to me. Yes, there are some tough players in Rafa’s half, but he’s avoiding Simon, Tsonga, Murray, Verdasco, Gonzalez, and, of course, Fed until a possible final.
