    Today's pick is probably a little tougher.

    Hmm, I was going to say, this is where my heart overrules (at least for one round) my head. BUt I did happen to peek, and say Federer hasn't beaten Rafa in three years. I was initially surprised that their head-to-head was so lop-sided from the beginning, but then later remembered that most of their early meeting were on clay, and Fed at least kept even on other surfaces. On the other hand, I'm not sure not match-fit (or game-fit) Nadal is. But in any case, for today I'm going with

    Rafael Nadal

    ... and with all that blabbering and thinking out loud (and also rushing because I thought it was three minutes to the deadline), I ended up not putting down the name I meant to. Nadal was my original thought (and hope, as I'd like Roger to get to the final) this morning, but then the head-to-head convinced me he was more likely to win in a semi, so it was supposed to be Roger today. Well, I'd be happiest if I successfully pick Roger on Saturday, and UN-successfully pick Novak on Sunday.

    Ha ha...I was thinking your logic didn't match with your pick!

    A great run for Martini, but that's our suicide pool for this go around!

    Even if I had put down Federer, I still wouldn't have been able to beat the draw. I'd be able to choose Djokovic for Saturday, but I'd have already used both guys on the other side of the draw.
