2012 Australian Open: The Usual Suspects!

In the world of men's tennis we have the Elite 4 and then there's the rest of the field. Every now and then someone other than these 4 will break through and reach the Final 4 but (more often than not) the above 4 gentlemen are usually the last players remaining in the men's locker room....

And the 2012 Australian Open is no exception.

The Semifinals:

No. 1 Novak Djokovic (defending champion) vs. No. 4 Andy Murray
No. 2 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 3 Roger Federer

  • Will World No. 1 Djokovic continue to tear it up in Grand Slam events and make it 4 of the last 5?
  • Will World No. 2 Nadal capture his 11th overall Grand Slam title and begin his quest to regain the No. 1 ranking?
  • Will World No. 3 Federer capture his mind-boggling 17th Grand Slam title and cement his legacy as the greatest player ever?
  • Will World No. 4 Murray capture his first-ever elusive major title? Make no mistake about it, the only reason why Murray has never won a major is because of the 3 men ahead of him. Aside from those 3, there is no better player in the world than Murray.

These 4 men have combined to win 23 of the last 24 major titles. Incredible!
