These are the top 8 players in the world, so any permutation would be tough. Murray should beat Tsonga. Berdych and Djokovic are 50/50 propositions.

Your quite right about that Boogers but that said Fed must be quietly smiling to himself.

Andy should win vs Tsonga I agree.

VS Nole, I give it 60/40 Andy.

VS Berdych, 55/45 Andy.

Well if Andy dosent win his group and it was a Fed Nole final i will be rooting for Nole to whip SUM BUTT and beat Fed.I really really dont want Fed to win it again this year.But i would really like Andy to get to the final and win it this year no question about that.

I hope you have better luck than I have with live Murray matches. Watched 4, seen him lose 4.

Oh Boogers it must be seeing you that puts Andy off! Please make sure you are well hidden if you are present at another live match, or stay well away.

To be honest with you im not that keen on the WTF myself.I hate it if it has to come down to most matches won or most points won.I vividly remember that happening to Andy a couple of years back and Delpo got through because Fed let him win that match.How anybody can like Fed and say he is a nice guy is beyond me.

How can this be a draw as it No 1-3-5-7, and No.2 4 6 8.  Surely this was predictable.

I certainly hope so too Boogers! That is bad luck.

Really excited though to be there at Andy's first UK appearance as a Grand slam winner etc.

It will be shown on BBC2

I do hope it's a Round Robin and that they won't be dressing each other, as suggested above <vbg>

nice one fcr.
boogers you are under strict instructions to stay away from 02 on days that Andy is playing. 
Fed as usual is the jammy swiss roll when it comes to the draw though I guess in fairness the comparison should be with ferrer as the equivalent seed.
