As hard as it gets really, don't think I've ever seen a harder draw. If anything only Nadal's Wimbledon 2010 draws comes close to being this hard.

Looner, I'm in Ur Federer thread, being Ur tard.

"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."

Re: How hard is Federer's draw up to the QFs of RG 2012

Kamke - Hard first rnd opponent for sure, up and coming. Not a nightmare first round opponent for Federer, there could have been worst draws, but drawing Kamke first round will make any veteran upset.

Ungur - Claycourt specialist who in the first round just defeated the most talented player to ever pick up a racquet (next to Donald Young). On hardcourt perhaps this would be a easy matchup, but in RG meeting Ungur before the 4th rnd/QF is just a flat out tough draw.

Mahut - In the form of his life routining former grand champion and world #1. On top of that he is a frenchman so he has the crowd behind him. Very possible if Mahut beats Federer he could be playing on the final Sunday of Roland Garros. With the way Mahut is playing, meeting him before the QF is harsh.

Kubot/Goffin/Clement - All three will be tough 4R opponents. Kubot a veteran who does notoriously well in slams. Goffin up and coming star, not someone who you want to face in 4R. Clement, he has played on the final Sunday of a slam before, so meeting Clement before the QF or perhaps even the SF is not easy. Yes, Clement has aged, but he knows how to win the big matches in the big grand slams. Nightmare opponent.

Is this the hardest draw I've ever seen? No, but it sure is pretty damn close.

I mean I cannot imagine how Fed has won these two matches. He'll barely have enough strength to lift that RG trophy after he beats the mugs at the tail-end of the tournament following these exhausting clay grind contests. Mahut will be hell.

Re: How hard is Federer's draw up to the QFs of RG 2012

Muger, you got to be crazy, you gotta have a real need. You gotta sleep on your toes and when you're on the ATP Council you've got to be able to pick out the cupcake draws with your eyes closed. And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight, you've got to lie when the moment is right without thinking.

And after a while, you can work on points for style; like the man's purse, and the dull all-serve game and a certain look in the eye and the phony smile. You have to be trusted by the Fedtards that you lie to so that when they turn their backs on you you'll get the chance to put the knife in.

Muger, you gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder. You know, it's starting to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older. Yeah, and in the end you'll pack up and fly down south and hide your head in the sand. Just another sad old man all alone and dying of envy.

And when you lose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown. And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and you lose to Rafole and it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around!!! So have a good drown, Muger, as you go down all alone, DRAGGED down by Rafole !!!

Re: How hard is Federer's draw up to the QFs of RG 2012

This is a horrible draw. Kamke in 1st round is effortless, Ungur surprised me today, but is a simple win for Federer, Mahut is a decent player and Kubot/Goffin/Clement he should be at home if he can`t beat those guys. He will reach QF without playing a single seeded. The problem with Federer is that sometimes he tends to complicate what is simple.
