Draw from hell will finally end Federer I think. Mahut 71-69 in the 5th.

Mahut is tougher than Klizan that's for sure. People thought Ungur was going to be a walkover

Draw from hell for Roger. Can't blame him if he loses this one.

Re: Fed's tough draw continues; R3 vs. Mahut

The way he's playing it seems he saw the draw and just went "to hell with it, I'll cruise for as long as they let me and I won't put any more energy into this than that."

Understandable really. Nadal plays mugs and Roger gets the hard game every friggin round. Though I have to admit, Kavcic was not a mug against Djoko today so at least he can think of that.

Re: Fed's tough draw continues; R3 vs. Mahut

People here at GM don't learn.

We witnessed today ourselves why Ungur was considered a threat. Expect the same with Mahut day after. What if it does go to 70-68 in the fifth? Indeed, Roger is getting roughed out there while his 2 younger rivals make mincemeat of their opponents in cakewalk draws.

With the amount of hate some people have for the GOAT here, they'll die at about 30 to 40 years of age. I mean there's only so much hate one man can stand.

Re: Fed's tough draw continues; R3 vs. Mahut

He'll be lucky to get four games off of Mahut.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Kamke, Ungur and Mahut. You are right, that does sound like a ferocious clay court draw.

Clown.

Re: Fed's tough draw continues; R3 vs. Mahut

^^It would do anyone well to not underrate a warrior like Mahut.

Re: Fed's tough draw continues; R3 vs. Mahut

I fear for Rogie. I wish he had an easy draw like Luckdal.
