Two popular players were dealt tough blows in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. Defending champ Rafael Nadal had to retire against Andy Murray because of a knee injury, and Andy Roddick was hampered by a shoulder injury in his five-set loss to Marin Cilic. At least Roddick can take solace in knowing he's only two weeks away from seeing his wife grace the pages of Sports Illustrated's 2010 Swimsuit Issue.

Reader Kenny says, "Jimmy, in spirit of the Australian Open, I thought these impressions from current quarterfinalist and No. 3 seed Novak Djokovic of Roddick, Murray, Nadal, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova might help some people choose who to root for. They are hilarious."
