Harrison up 2 sets to 1. Hopefully he can close it out in 4.

I know.

Harrison always gets stuck playing Djokovic or Murray in majors. Sucks

He's going to just have to get seeded to avoid it. And that's coming.

Here is how I see it playing out:

Quadrant 1: Djokovic will destroy Ryan Harrison and then destroy Feliciano Lopez and then destroy Sam Querrey and then he'll beat Berdych in four to put him in the final four.

Quadrant 2: This is by far the weakest quadrant of the drawn. David Ferrer is the highest ranked guy in the quadrant, and I think he wins it unless he gets taken out by an up and comer like Jersey Janowicz, who does have a lot of game. Another possibility is Kei Nishikori, but I still think Ferrer will advanc out of this quadrant.

Semifinal match between Quadrant 1 and Quadrant 2: Djokovic beats Ferrer and beats him badly.

Quadrant 3: This quadrant has both former Vols that made it into the main draw: Rhyne Williams and JP Smith. This is a strong quadrant. You've got Delpo at the top and Murray at the bottom. And I think it will be between Delpo and Murray for who comes out of here. Federer will be praying that Delpo takes out Murray, because Federer seems to do well against Delpo, and I think Murray would be favored over Federer. I will definitely watch Delpo v. Murray if they play.

Quadrant 4: You've got Federer at the bottom of the draw and Jo Willie Tsonga at the top. I can't say for sure that Jo Willie will make it all the way through to the quarters. He is just too erratic. You can't count on him. I do think Federer will definitely make it to the quarters. If he gets Jo Willie, he might lose. If he gets anybody else, he'll win.

Semifinals: I'm going to predict that Federer makes it out of his quadrant. I think either Delpo or Murray will beat him. I'll go out on a limb and say it's Delpo.


Finals: Djokovic v. Delpo. Djokovic wins in 4 sets.

Nice breakdown, almost exactly how I see it. I think only a fresh Murray willing to grind all day could beat Nole. I fee like Fed is ripe to lose early in a major for once, but old man Davydenko is the only possible threat in those first few rounds. I could see Milos or Kohlschreiber beat him in the fourth.

Upset alert for me is Llodra over Tsonga in the first round.

I haven't seen Murray play in 2013, and if he beat him on the hard courts in Flushing Meadows he should be able to beat him in the Aussie Open (and he almost beat him last year in the semis).

But from what I saw from Novak in the first round, that guy isn't losing. It's just so hard to get a point off of him. Watching him yesterday reminded me of seeing Rafa on clay. It's just hard to fathom how you beat the guy when he's in top form.

FWIW, Andre Agassi is picking Murray.

I feel this way as well, but I'm not sure who is going to do it in his draw. Kohlschreiber perhaps. I don't see Raonic doing it.

I have a rule that I never bet on a Frenchmen. But then what if he is playing another Frenchmen?

Lisicki takes the first set from Wozniacki 6-2.

Tough draw first round for Caroline, but she's up 3-0 in the 2nd set.

Pair of hotties.

Wozniacki beat Lisicki in 3. Good win for her.

Lisicki gave that match away, she is so mentally all over the place in her matches, the talent to be a top 10 player.

I need to marry her already and work it all out through lots and lots of sex.

The heat is going to play a huge factor and I think that knocks out Federer in favor of the younger guys.

I say Nole/Murray final with Nole winning in 4.
