The Federer top seed at the Olympics :)

Djokovic and Murray are seeded 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Sadly Nadal is out due to injury.

3 set format with final being 5 sets I think, much like how it was in 2008 :)

Federer should take this, but 3 set format is quite unpredictable.

Ya I know. Well I guess we will see Federer vs Djokovic final unless Murray pull some crazy win.

Murray is pretty solid in 3 set format, so he could surprise us.

Djoko got battered.

Nadal's just not recovering well from Wimbledon, he's pulled out of US open too. He's likely to take the rest of 2012 out. Good news for Fed and Murray in particular though.

He'll be missed, he was a good thing to the sport. Could have won more then the one major but Federer's rise halted him. Still, he has never really been right after losing the 2009 Wimbledon final (6-2 in 2nd set tiebreak, would have gotten him a 2 sets to 0 lead :()

Another player ended through injury unfortunately. I hope Soderling doesn't follow him.

ESPN SportsCenter - Andy Roddick ends career with 4-set loss to No. 7 Juan Martin del Potro in U.S. Open Round of 16

There goes my favorite player, I know he didn't win as much as he probably could have due to injuries and other stuff, but yea, feels shitty

He has the form to take out Djokovic.

Murray started SO slowly vs Cilic, but somehow came around to batter him. Cilic really choked when he was 5-1 up in the 2nd set. Only won 3 games after that.

Didn't get the chance to see Federers match vs Berdych, but it just looked like he got outhit and outplayed.

Other QF is:

Del Potro vs Djokovic

Ferrer vs Tipsaveric.

I'm going to go with Del Potro in 4, Ferrer in 3.

This has been so hard fought. I see this going to 4-5 sets though. Djokovic is fighting like a demon now.
