(3)Roger Federer takes on the hard-hitting (8)Tomas Berdych. Federer dismantled James Blake yesterday in less than an hour with a 6-4 6-1 win. Lately though, Berdych has had Federer's number, beating him in the 2010 Wimbledon Quarterfinals. Berdych hasn't been playing extremely well this year, but always posses a problem because of his power. My Prediction: Federer continues his good play and wins 6-3 7-5.

(2)Rafael Nadal faces the resurgent (7) Mardy Fish. After Nadal's epic 3+ hour battle against Fernando Verdasco yesterday (a 7-6 6-7 7-6 victory), he looks to keep Mardy Fish away from the Semis. Fish has crushed everyone this tournament and has an actual chance at beating Nadal. My Prediction: Fish swims into the Semis 6-4 5-7 6-3.

Andy Murray cruised today against a tired Gilles Simon, 6-3 6-3. Murray moves into the Semis possibly against Fish or Nadal.

(1)Novak Djokovic takes on (6)Gael Monfils, but after last weeks romping by Nolé over Monfils, I don't see the Frenchman Monfils advancing. My Prediction: Novak Djokovic moves on 6-2 6-4.
