Murray to wait another year, Elena always

Well out of the big four we all thought the Djoker would be the one to fall, but Murray did do this last year. Is Querrey now a reasonable shot? Verdasco finally wins a (reasonably) big one, Isner finishes his 15 minutes and Simon and Llodra bow out.

Let's assume Monfils can win the Battle of France and Djokovic goes Fishing, Soderling destroys Montanes and Fed dines out on Melzer's dropshots.

Murray's Quarter
Bye bye: Isner, Murray

Djokovic’s Quarter

Winner: Djokovic
Fed’s Quarter
Matches to watch: Soderling vs Montanes, Federer vs Melzer
Winner: Federer

Elena DementievaWomen:
Stosur beat Dementieva in a break-fest (but both served well) to show that she can go hard in New York, but closing is still a big problem for both girls. Schiavone is still outstaying expectations, but Ivanovic finally lived up to hers. Venus too is belaying the doubters and presumedly will expect to advance over the Italian (which means she will lose). Clijsters looks good and may even still be improving.

All eyes on the Battle of the Blondes. When they asked the Woz if she admired Moody Maria as a youngster she said no, Kournikova. That should inspire Sharapova to teach her a lesson but let's tip Wozniacki for the win though with more lost games then usual. In the others the red-hot Cibulkova over the Kuz, angry Wicky over the much improved Kanepi and Bepa over Petkorazzi though we would hope for a Petkovic win just to see her dance again.

Wozniacki’s Quarter
