I'm was just about to type a similar reply!! The truth of the matter is no matter who Rafa is slated to face it will always be considered an "easy" draw but we as Rafa fans should see this as the ultimate praise! If you think about it, it really is Rafa's fault, if he didn't have such a great record against all the top players then his draws wouldn't always look so easy to all his haters.

I finally understand how they see things. They scan the draws and disregard quality opponents and base things on nothing but H2Hs and when Rafa faces a field of people that he has a decisive edge against the choir, led by the band of bitter brothers, all cry out how life is unfair and how Rafa has yet again lucked into an "easy" draw.

In order for Rafa's draw to be considered tough he would have to face players who have a winning edge over him or players who have beaten him in this season or players who have a history of consistently challenging him- but because their are a shortage of these players Rafa's draws will forever be looked at as soft regardless of the quality opposition.

Re: Draw Discussion: Shanghai Rolex Masters 2013

Everyone in Ferrer's quarter is injured.

This is funny.

Perhaps you need a refresher on Nadal's form this year

Supporting

Tier 1: Fish, Kuznetsov, Donskoy, Kyrgios, Vesely, Thiem, Coric

Tier 2: All other young players (We need a new generation of players!)

Tier 3: Carreno, Pella, Struff, Janowicz, Goffin

I don't know, this year he has a way to recover a top-15 level in big tournaments. With his draw it could be enough to reach semis...

The King is dead.
Nolisters rule in Grand Slams.
Mugers have crossed the Wall.
Winter is coming...

Re: Draw Discussion: Shanghai Rolex Masters 2013

Nole is great on these courts, and seems not to be too below his USO level, while Nadal has visibly dropped level. I say Nole gets this, Nadal reaches maybe QF.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

Re: Draw Discussion: Shanghai Rolex Masters 2013

Have a feeling Rafa might crash out early (if he wins Beijing) and Djokovic lose to Federer...

Del Potro for the win, perhaps?
