Re: Do we really believe the draws are random?

If I ever had some doubts, they all disappeared after Isner-Mahut at Wimbledon in 2011 again in 1st round, really.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: Do we really believe the draws are random?

Some draws are fixed more than others, tbh. Have more concerns over Wimbledon and the US Open rather than the Australian Open and the French.

Re: Do we really believe the draws are random?

Look at first half .. and then the second one. Like different tournament

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

No they are not random. Hint: Watch Roger's 2013 AO draw.
