The Djokovic-Federer and Murray-Nadal semis aren’t a done deal at the 2011 Rogers Cup.

The Rogers Cup draw pits first seeded Djokovic against former world no.4 and tough opponent Nikolay Davydenko. If he defeats the Russian, Djokovic will then face 2009 US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina. Then, if all goes according to plan, Djoko will be up against the dangerous Gaël Monfils of France in the quarters before a semifinal clash with Roger Federer, world no.3 and the only player to have beaten him in 2011.

But it won’t be a cakewalk for Federer either. In the round of sixteen, he’ll have to oust his Wimbledon nemesis Jo-Wilfred Tsonga of France and either Richard Gasquet or Nicolas Almagro, who will duke it out for a spot against the Swiss in the quarters.

The bottom of the draw is somewhat less perilous. Second seed Rafael Nadal shouldn’t face too many challenges before an eventual battle against Tomas Berdych (no.7) of the Czech Republic. Andy Murray, the winner of the last two editions of the Rogers Cup, will go head-to-head against some tough opponents, including Mardy Fish of the US, Ernests Gulbis of Latvia, who happens to be playing some great tennis, Mikhail Youzhny of Russia (no.11) and Stanislas Wawrinka (no.14) of Switzerland.
