Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

who do they want to avoid, in the 1st round? 2nd? 3rd? 4th? Quarters? and semis?

Who would plant them nighmares in the head?

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Not sure at what stage they can meet but Soderling would be a nightmare for Rafa

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Nadal does not want to meet Soderling for sure. Haas is playing well so no one wants to face him early. Karlovic is always a nightmare for anyone.

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Haas, Karlovic, Soderling, Baghdatis, Mahut, or Tipsarevic are nightmares on grass.

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Youzhny and Ferrero are tricky unseeded opponents on these courts.

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Nadal definately does not want to play the Gooch.
Who ever does the draw should throw Soderling into rd16 for Nadal. Another 5 setter please
Federer really shouldn't lose befroe the semis and if he does it would most likely be to someone unexpected

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Karlovic may be an annoyance to anyone but his record in GS regardless is abysmal. Good players might not want to play him, but I doubt they'd actually be worried about losing.

Soderling took Nadal to five sets last year I think, so we already know that he's a threat to Nadal in grass too. I doubt Federer or Nadal would like Murray in their half of the draw either. Haas is also seeing unusually good form this time of the year.

wat.

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

All you have to do against Karlovic is to take care of your own serve. If you don't get broken, then you'll defeat Karlovic in 2 tie-breaks (as the match goes, you get more and more looks at second serves and that's all you need).

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

no one wants Muzza on their side of the draw
big hitters are one thing Rafa might want to avoid, namely Soderling, Gonzo, etc

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Worst possible draw for Federer or Nadal

Karlovic is an obvious one to put in there but honestly his GS record stinks
