Exclamation A little draw scandal!

From the last year Miami tournament ( I choose this moment, because, from that tournament we knew that Djoko will be a tennis hero), look how many times Djokovic was in the down half with Nadal (avoiding Federer):
1. Miami 2007
2. Rome 2007
3. French Open 2007
4. Queens Club 2007 (Federer didn't play)
5. Wimbledon 2007
6. Canada 2007
7. US Open 2007
8. Madrid 2007
9. Shanghai 2007 (the same group)
10. Dubai 2008
11. Indian Wells 2008
12. Miami 2008

And these are tournaments when Djoko was in the Top half of draw with Federer:
1. Monte Carlo 2007
2. Hamburg 2007
3. Cincinnati 2007
4. Paris 2007
5. Australian Open 2008

I know that it might be only coincidance, but anyway I don't like it. You'll see that in RG, Wimby and US each time Nadal will have to play Nole in semifinal.

Conspiracy theorist.

The man did not land on the moon.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: A little draw scandal!

As soon as I saw this year's Miami draw, I had the same thoughts about it. Why does Roger always get Davo??? And talking 'bout conspiracy theories - why is Fed always serving first??? For the first time in ages he didn't serve against Fish first and he lost!!! Any thoughts on that???

Re: A little draw scandal!

I think it's a conspiracy too, look how many times Roddick landed on Roger's draw. Pfff go find something else to do.

Re: A little draw scandal!

also, why does federer always gets to enter the stadium as 2nd before a match? he gets more time to rest in the hall, a few seconds but still

Re: A little draw scandal!

also why do the seeds always draw the bye in the first round in the TMS tournaments, seems a little bit fishy

Re: A little draw scandal!

ridiculous thread. So in your point of view either federer or djokovic is controlling this?

Whos knows maybe both of them formed a team to avoid meeting each other before the finals??

Give me a break

I almost died when I read that. That's been noticing that for the longest time! Going back to the title topic, it seems right to me that #1 should play #4 in the semis regardless of who holds those rankings so this doesn't bother me at all.

Best Matches of All Time
Agassi def. Blake, U.S. Open 2005 | Agassi def. Baghdatis, U.S. Open 2006
Federer def. Sampras, Wimbledon 2001 | Davydenko def. Haas, U.S. Open 2006
Schalken def. Gonzalez, U.S. Open 2002 | Agassi def. Roddick, Cincinnati 2004
Kohlschreiber def. Roddick, Australian Open 2008 | Federer def. Nadal, Wimbledon 2007
Melzer def. Djokovic, Roland Garros 2010 | Sargsian def. Mathieu, U.S. Open 2004
Nalbandian def. Safin, Madrid 2006 | Soderling def. Nadal, Roland Garros 2009
Federer def. Tipsarevic, Australian Open 2008 | Gaudio def. Coria, Roland Garros 2004
Djokovic def. Stepanek, U.S. Open 2007 | Murray def. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2008
+ any five set win for Todd Martin

It it no secret that Federer is remarkably good in coin tossing. It´s one of his biggest strenghts. Others have tried hard to close the gap, but no one seems to know just how he does it...spooky.
