Clueless haters, I have a post here for you since you must have missed it.

I look beyond the 32 seeds and I find only Benneteau who is anywhere close to that dangerous, mostly because of matchup issues.

Who is more dangerous than Tomic to face in rd3? No one.

Who is more dangerous than Raonic in rd4? Specially considering that every match between them have been close, maybe Gilles Simon would be worse but that is the only one I could think of.

Who is more dangerous than Tsonga in QF? Only Berdych for Federer.

Muray is 10 times more dangerous than Ferrer.

So this is the most difficult draw you could give Federer if you handpicked his opponents, except changing Tsonga with Berdych. It is not an easy draw.

Tea of truth:
