Gotta fancy Fed. Hopefully Raonic's back is 100% and it will be very interesting to see how he does here.

Roger really, can't see anything too serious bothering him in the draw if he serves well.

If Haase finds his serve, he wins

Re: WWW Halle?

Roger has a tough draw by Halle standards, but if he carries his level at R.G. on to the grass, he should win this without losing a set.

Re: WWW Halle?

I went with Raonic. Hewitt has too much to lose and I think he beats Roger in the first round. If Hewitt loses this then he falls outside the top 140.

Re: WWW Halle?

Berdych's draw looks really good, however he'll play crap and mug it up.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Re: WWW Halle?

Just out of interest, has Raonic done anything on grass?

Youzhny withdrew. So Petzschner now with a great chance.

Never played before. This is hope for awesomeness and slight fanboy hype at work.

Re: WWW Halle?

And by never I mean that Raonic has never played a match on grass at any professional level-World Tour, Challengers, or Futures

Re: WWW Halle?

Federer/Mayer v Raonic/Petzschner will be the final. Berdych will not make the finals.
