Already a bit of discussion on this on another topic. Basically, being seeded three means you DEFINITELY have to play either number two or number one in the semis.

Being seeded two obviously means you can't meet the number one until the final. It depends on the draw if the second seed meets the third or the fourth in the semi.

So if the tournament goes according to the seeding, Rafa will have to meet either Djoko or Rog in the semis, but Rog and Djoko could get to the final without having to meet Rafa.

Later I will also be explaining the Irish backstop....

Well, after all the hoo-ha Rafa has managed to avoid Djoko in the semis anyway. But he still faces a tough draw.

Djoko doesn't have it easy either, with a tough-ish first match against Kohlschreiber and possible encounters with the likes of Monfils, Felix A-A or Dimi, with Tsitispas in the quarters. But he's at least avoided Rafa AND Roger in the semis.

No doubt the bookies, given this draw, will make Djoko favourite, with Rog next favourite.
