AO R3: (ATP 2) Federer vs (ATP 45) Malisse
Interesting match up between Olderer and the X-man. Well actually, Malisse happens to be a few months older than Olderer himself but what gives...
Both were regarded as extremely talented in their youths but obvs Federer has been the one who has made the most of it. h2h is 7-1 for the Swiss but their first 7 encounters were BEFORE 2003. The eight and last encounter was in Toronto 2006 when Fed was in ninja-mode and the score was close, Federer won 7-6(4), 6-7(5), 6-3.
Anyhow, this could be tricky. The Belgian GOAT totally trashed Montañes in R2 so i guess he must be playing well. Still, I think Olderer takes this in 4.
