Draw from hell but Jesus from heaven.

Let's hope Roger soldiers through his thorny path and brings glory to Suisse .

Wow tough one. Glad he managed to scrape through this one.

Muller / Petz / Dimitrov / Gasquet should be beatable.

Too good Looner.

But in all seriousness I just don't see Roger overcoming such a tough draw and winning gold. This is as hard a draw as it gets.

I felt like Roger now understands which tactics to use against Benneteau who likes to use a lot of wrong-footing and net charging and lines to feed off pace pretty well. Benneteau did not like dealing with the drop shots and deep groundstrokes into the body nor the serves out wide to his backhand. He is a pesky opponent with his very unpredictable style. He throws all different kinds of returns and serves at an opponent.

I couldn't watch the whole match because of Serena and Venus , but I saw enough. Federer played and served well, and Benneteau was subpar. This combination resulted in an under 1 hour win. Keep moving maestro!!
