Well, Nadal pulled it out and Murray is on the comeback trail, so with the Djokster already through, Fed's loss most likely cost us the ever-so-rare Nos. 1-4 making it to he semis :-/

Can anyone explain to me the rationale behind how the bracket is set up? Why would (theoretically) #1 play against #3 in the semis, while #2 plays against #4?

The seeds are put into "pods" that are separated and then randomly drawn from there. So #1 seed's at the top, 2's at the bottom. 3 and 4 are separated as far as possible, but it's a random draw as to which one plays #1 and which plays #2. Seeds 5-8 are then a "pod" as well (each gets their own 8th of the draw, but which 8th it is random)

The rationale is that they dont want the draws to be boring if the #1 played the #4 every single time. If there isn't much change in the rankings then every tournament kinda ends up the same.

Personally I dont really agree with it, but it is what it is.

Pretty easy for Nadal - str8 sets and just looked like the better player.

I still say that if Rafa didn't have injury trouble last year (hurting in French and out for Wimbledon), Federer might have not beaten Sampras' record. ;-7

It's to Federer's credit that he's stayed healthy throughout his prime and others like Nadal haven't.
