something terribly wrong

French open semis line-up:

Federer (1) vs. Nallapandian (3)

Nadal (2) vs. Ljubicic (4)

The top 4 men’s seeds are all in the semis! Something terribly gone wrong. Wonder when was the last time something like this happened at the French.

Or is this the signal of a wave of claycourters dominating men’s tennis?


A little googling tells me that the last time such a thing happened (top 4 seeds in French semis) was in 1985 – a full 21 years ago!
