i happened to look at the basel draw.. and fed's half is tooooo easy for him..
i mean i am a fed fan but this is just sick...
murray,nalby and gonzo all are in bottom half ..
so i guess another title without dropping a set..!!
provided that ankle is fine
The question is how will Federer, Nalbandian, and Gonzalez perform after just coming back from Madrid SF and F ??? They are likely not to be at their best. Roger looked kind of pale and sweaty as if he had a cold during the Madrid tournament. He was wearning a huge scarf around his neck in a post match interview.
I remember in 2004 when he played Toronto he won the tournament beating Roddick in an awesome performance in the final and he had a pretty easy draw in Cincinnati.
Everyone wa saying "look what an easy draw, he is going to win this no problem". Result? He got knocked out in the first round by Hrbaty
So maybe it is more a question of fatigue and ability to switch sufaces and conditions and get used to that. I hope Roger can win this title as it means a lot to him and it would give him 250 Indiest points....putting him at 8,120.
