Fed will have been given a cushy diet of Pella,Willis,Evans to cream puff his way into the 4th Round and not be properly tested whilst Dimitrov would've faced a higher calibre of opponents priming him for the match.
This could be the turning point in his career.
Yeah I wouldn't be surprised either. Fed usually glides through the early rounds, but he has been awfully shaky this year, and I think Dimitrov really doesn't have any pressure on him at this point.
