Roger lost to Marat last year? Who can beat mediocre Roger this year?

I say Lleyton Hewitt. Lleyton at his best can beat most of the tour guys hands down including Rafe. Roddick is a joke and please dont mention him...

Re: Roger lost to Marat last year? Who can beat mediocre Roger this year?

I have to wonder about Tommy Haas, if he completely got his head and his game back together. Perhaps his new coach can get him there (wishful thinking, I know).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Roger lost to Marat last year? Who can beat mediocre Roger this year?

Haas has done it before at the AO... although, having recently seen the match for the first time, I don't think it's sour grapes if I say that Federer managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Anyway, mediocre Roger and Lionheart Lleyton both faced Czech opposition in their opening matches of the year, and the mediocre one was more efficient.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Let's hope then he's mediocre for the rest of the year.

I don't know if this is significant (in fact, I'm fairly sure it isn't, but never mind), but yesterday I saw a clip on the sports news of Haas' win over Wawrinka, and he has basically adopted Stan's close-cropped haircut. The flowing ponytail is gone - was that the source of his power, Samson-like, or simply an encumbrance weighing down Tommy Boy? Only time will tell.

Oh yea, Roddick is such a joke. You don't think at his best he can beat a mediocre Fed?

Actually that happened and Roddick won

I was going to say the "mediocre" thing might've been lost in translation....but the thread starter is Canadian

A word like mediocre wouldn't be lost in translation, regardless of the thread starter's background. I only hope for more of the mediocrity we witnessed last year.

Mediocre is sort of a not very nice word for average.
