Which Challenger Is This?

You Fedtards going on about how hard Federer's draw is and I totally agree with you, just look at this!

R1: Kamke (78)
R2: Ungur (92)
R3: Klizan (70) / Mahut (89)
R4: Goffin (109) / Clement (139) / Kubot (49) / Serra (156)

Only saving grace is that Beck didn't beat Kubot today as then Federer would have definitely played a player ranked outside the top 100 in R4!

Re: What Challenger Is This?

ahahha i agree it's pretty remarkable how horribly easy Federer's draw has turned out to be, I mean it's insane that if you literally showed someone a draw of a Challenger and that of Roger's draw up to 4th round someone would probably guess which was which wrong. insane hahah, and they say Nadal rigs everything

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: What Challenger Is This?

Re: What Challenger Is This?

The top 3 will win their early rounds no matter who they play. It's the possible QF and SF opponents that decide the difficulty of a draw for these guys. Do you think Rafa would trade draws with Federer? Not a chance.

Re: What Challenger Is This?

I never get why people waste so much time:

1) quailing at the draw when it is made, and

2) then complaining when a player's draw opens up.

You can only beat what's put in front of you - if the "threat" opponents don't make it through, then that's the way it goes. These days the first three rounds should be a cake walk to the top guys anyway because of the 32 seeding.

Re: What Challenger Is This?

Federer hasn't lost before the QF in 8 years. Are lots of easy matches good preparation for a potentially tough QF opponent?

Mate, I honestly think Berdych is going to lose before the QF here anyway! With Del Potro being injured too I wouldn't be surprised if he went out before the QF as well!

Re: Which Challenger Is This?

It did get very easy, but the thing is that even if Nalby, Lopez or whoever you want would've met Federer, he had absolutely 0% chance of losing before QF.
QF is where it gets interesting, and Fed has got by far the hardest one.
