People going to be watching? My money's on 2 players in each field - Djokovic and Murray for the men, and Serena and Sharapova for the women.

Tennis? I thought from the title that this was going to be about immigration policy.

You're very brave if you discount the Fed and Nadal. My money would be on them. Djokovic is bound to be beaten and Fed is bound to win one again.

Fed's got the nastiest draw of the top 4. I don't think he'll make the semifinals. He's got various potential tough matches before the quarterfinals, and then in the semis, he might get Fish, or Tsonga (who's beaten him the last couple of times). And he's not in great form lately. It's definitely always a little scary betting against someone like Federer, but the flip side is that he's such a big name that he gets overbet and this results is disproportionately good odds on (at least some of) his opponents. It's like Mike Tyson...he won 50 out of 56 fights, but if you bet $1000 against him every time he fought, you'd have made a lot of money.

Nadal has a really nice draw...I think he's a bigger threat. We'll see how it shakes out.

I have 60% of my bet in the men's draw on Djokovic at 3-2, and 40% on Murray at 5-1. Should be interesting.

One thing I will say is that Murray is the class player that deserves to win a major and the time might be now. He is also in good form and on the day can beat anyone. I hope he lasts it out and bags his first major. 5-1 should make you some good money. I'd consider that a very good bet. I wouldn't have bet on Djokovic with those odds but on current form that is a safe way to win back the money you might lose on Murray. lol

lol I hear that. Here's pretty much what I'm looking at:

*Murray and Sharapova win - VERY, very nice score
*Murray or Sharapova and Djokovic and Serena win - Nice score
Murray or Sharapova wins - Small score
Serena and Djokovic win - Small score
Serena or Djokovic wins - Small loss
Neither Murray, Djokovic, Serena, nor Sharapova wins - Ouch.

Stay tuned!

Scare-A-Pova dropped the first set and struggled in the second, but got into the next round.
