Will Roger lose a set in the whole tournament?

The way Roger is playing now i wouldnt be surprised if he wins the Open without dropping a set. If he can beat Safin in straights i dont see why he has to lose a set to anyone else. Safin wasnt playing bad, Roger was just on fire. If he plays like this the only person he can lose a set to is Djoke. In the final if he meets Murray i think Murray will be done like he was at the US, cos here his draw is even tougher. Plus its hotter and Murray has the flue. So probably Federer could win in straights there too. Its not like it would be the first time since he wins slam without dropping a set...

Ps. Mods cant move this thread since there is a similar thread about Murray.

"If he can beat Safin in straights i dont see why he has to lose a set to anyone else."

This is funny.

With a lot of players big serves he will probably get beat in a tie-breaker somewhere down the road. And if Safin put him in one, I assume he will lose 1 somewhere.

He'll lose 3 sets in a single match. Believe me.

This statement makes Safin look like a good player.

Re: Will Roger lose a set in the whole tournament?

Yeah he will lose one or two along the way to the final in my opinion. Murray will be a problem, and if Del Potro plays like he can, the he might be able to take a set off him too. But in the end what really matters is the title, whether you have dropped two sets every match or not lost a single set the whole tournament means nothing in the end, the prize money is still the same, the title is still the same.

Re: Will Roger lose a set in the whole tournament?

Berdych may get a set, considering hes beaten Fed before. But i doubt it.

I'm pretty sure the Del Potro will get a set, due to the way hes playing. If that is the QF.

Djokovic is SF's... Hmm... If this does happen i would say Fed will drop at least a set.

Murray or Nadal in final against Fed... Yeh he'll defo drop a set if not more.

In otherwords. Fed will drop a Set.

Del Potro's flat game is not even remotely threatening to Federer.

Where did you get the idea that Murray has flu (unless you were being particularly facetious (sp). He looks pretty fit to me.

He does. He mentioned it after the Melzer match. Surely you noticed the massive cold sore on his face?

Will Federer make the final without losing a set?

It will be tough against Del Potro, but I can't see him losing a set to Djokovic.
