The Almagro-Tipsarevic match will not count seen as Tipsarevic retired.
I wanted to change the rules about that. I think it should stand as a 3-set victory to Almagro.

I think you should keep that rule because it adds a bit of spice to the predictions.

I suppose it does add an extra element of unpredictability to it.

No the retirement rule stays as it is. As we've seen players can come from 2 sets down to win in 5. Also the other player retiring through an injury gained in the match is not something that can be predicted.

That's fine Smile That's you taking into account the form of both players going into the match and that Simon might retire, that is a sensible prediction Shrug

I'm on a bad run at the moment, generally getting the results right but the wrong sets.

Well you all said I was crazy for suggesting that Wawrinka would put up a fight against Djokovic. Weedman

Wonder if his wrist was troubling him again.

Ferrer will take out Nishikori easily, no other result is possible to be honest. 
Had Nishi not still been troubled by a knee injury I think he might have managed to take a set off Ferrer.  Ferrer certainly dominated in the first two sets but Nishi put up a good fight in the 3rd.
