Not to mention Almagro and Davydenko or Wawrinka. Rafa seems like an age away at the moment.

I think he'll handle Almagro (he's never even lost a set to him before). As for the 4R, we'll see. I wouldn't count him out though, especially not against Stanislas.

No point in talkin' about future rounds; match at a time; can only play, and beat, his current opponent, and he did nicely today.

Ever since he got the confidence bust, he is doing quite well against those whom he isn't afraid of. Therefore I still consider him as a favorite in that 1/8, despite the fact it is a hardest one. Unfortunately, whenever he faces big boys he starts to play safe and lose the only advantage he has over "regular" guys - his power play.

it's not like he can hurt the likes of Fed or Nadal with his power play anyway, unless they were totally off at the day.
