yes I agree that they didnot all play at their maximum level, but that's always the case with the draws, not every opponent will play at their maximum level
But sill none of Davydenko and Raonic playerd at their worst
level : Davydenko played at his average level, Raonic just a little bit worse, and the match against Raonic was still quite tight.
And Tsonga was better than most people expected (including me)
Anyway, it was a tougher draw than most other players in the draw : if MTFers have decided to make a new collective gimmick of laughing at that AO draw, that will not change my opinion
And this Dubai draw is way easier than Fed's draw in the AO.
