Hanescu is so bad on grass.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

He's not that bad. He's got a 9-8 Wimbledon record with five top-100 wins. No big ones, though. Compare to Murray's opponent who's got a 5-7 record and three top-100 wins (one over Davydenko as 4th seed) and Darcis, who improved his record to 2-3 and got his first top-100 win and you see that Federer was no more lucky in his 1st round draw than the others. Except Djokovic, of course, who faces an opponent of higher standard. Flo Mayer has actually never lost in Wimby R1 in seven appearances. So we'll get another "never in R1" streak broken today....

Not sure why Federer is getting some hate here Federer played pretty well bearing in mind with his opponent. He served well which is important if he wants to succeed in the latter stages of the tournament. He shouldn't be falling to the trap that Federer is back and guaranteed on his chances for the title just like the results he was getting in R1-3 at FO but now that Nadal is out, he should get some relief.

(Maybe I should get involved with the MTF way and living with the connotations and lingo people use and overall show the obnoxious behavour towards people like some others so I can join the fun around here. )

THE GOLDEN ERA OF TENNIS
Novak "The Serbinator" Djokovic Andy "The Pride and Joy of Britain" Murray Roger "Swiss Maestro" Federer Rafael "Spain's Raging Bull" Nadal
