Ridiculous thread. Reading some posts one would think the guy was out of the Top 50 and hadn't won a match - let alone a tournament - for ages
I can't believe how masochistic some Fed fans are - digging his grave before every GS
what's ridiculous is that people feel like making extreme statements, and there are ones from both sides :
- "Fed's QF streak has ended" ... but at least the persons who say that say it for fun, they're not serious, not like the ones in the second case ;
- "Fed is through to the SFs" or "only Djokovic, Murray and Del Po or Berdych are dangerous to Fed"
Both are as ridiculous imo.
Besides, for those who say that Fed "owns" Davydenko on the only basis of a 17-2 number without considering how tight many of those matches were, the 9-2 record of Davydenko over Berdych can also be opposed to them.
Seriously, I don't get how Berdych or del Po would be that much more dangerous to Davydenko and Tomic considering what they respectively have done so far this year.
For Fed, it will be his first matches of the year : 2 years ago he struggled against Schoorel and Chiudinelli in that situation (before playing great in the end of the tournament and winning it).
Of course it's dangerous to play Paire who defeated Cilic this year, and Dabydenko who defeated Ferrer this year, and Tomic who just won Sydney, in this situation !
Most likely is that he will reach QFs but it's surely dangerous, the fools who deny the uncertainty of sport in this forum just deny the reality of sport
