WWW RG R1: Roger Federer vs. Feliciano López

Lalo should have beaten Fed last time they played but his choking abilities got the best from him. Will he be able to bring it to Federer again?

this seems like the most interesting first round encounter involving atop 10 player.

Federer wins in four sets. But this Feli has really good form.

Never ever give up

Re: WWW RG R1: Roger Federer vs. Feliciano López

Most likely 4 sets if Lopez's BH is working, 3 sets if it isn't.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: WWW RG R1: Roger Federer vs. Feliciano López

This is exactly what i was affraid off. I was hoping that Feli could make great run at RG, i think he is definetely best unseeded player, but thanks to unlucky draw this is his exit. He is great player, probably can took set from Roger thanks to TB, but really i don´t think he can win 3 sets agains Roger- he is just too skillfull and experienced player in Paris to not win this match. But for Roger hard match- he definetely would choose play some Qualificier than Feli in form.

Re: WWW RG R1: Roger Federer vs. Feliciano López

I would hesitate to pick Federer in this one If this was a minor/m1000 encounter.
In slam, Roger in 3.

Re: WWW RG R1: Roger Federer vs. Feliciano López

Declinerer in 3. RG clay is not the same as Madrid clay and Feli isn't playing in front of a hometown crowd.

Shit draw, btw
