Why is it that if the 1-seed Federer had beaten Berdych, he would have
played the 3-seed Djokovic?  And the 2-seed Nadal is playing the 4-
seed Murray?  Shouldn't it be 2-seed vs 3-seed, and 1-seed vs 4-seed?

Yes, in March Madness it works that way; but in tennis they DRAW for
the #3 player; he can go against #1 or #2. #4 goes against the other.
Then 5-6-7-8 are drawn randomly against any of the first four, etc etc

I guess this year it worked out correctly.  Nadal should have been the
1-seed anyway.
