Federer 2007 Wimbledon, and his draw to Roland Garros in 2009, both cakewalks. Andy's is very easy though, hopefully he can take advantage of it and his ankle is ok, and with Rafa playing like sh!t, who knows how far he will go.

Re: Andy Murray - Easiest Draw To A GS SF Ever?

Dunno. Just looking at the past years I'm sure we can find a few similar paths to SF. Thing is if one or two upsets happen this happens. The draw was good but not super easy. After the upsets of Almagro (wasn't he in Murrays quarter?) and Melzer it became a cake draw. It happens. If just one of them had survived it would look much harder for Murray. But he should buy a lottery ticket this week as well

pocahontas' draw in the USO 2010 wasn't just the easiest draw all the way to the SF, it was the easiest draw all the way to the title in the history of the entire open era.

maybe if nalbandian stopped eating 5 cheese burgers, fries and a diet coke for breakfast, he'd have at least taken a set in that wimby final vs hewitt

or maybe not

as much as i agree that this is a mug clay era and therefore all acomplishments on the dirt mean little when compared to what the past greats did, i have to say that fed's draw in RG '09 wasn't easy at all for the current standards.

del potro, probly one of the top 5 clay courters in those days, in great form.
acasuso, an experienced clay courter, hitting the ball well
haas, easily one of the 5 most talented players of the past 10 years, playing great
soderling in the final -also one of the top 5 clay courters as time has told us since that edition of RG.

then again, none of these guys is that good when compared to the real clay courters of the eighties and the nineties but for the current era, they're good enough sadly.
