OMG at that draw.

34:1 in the h2h!!!

LOL, I'm happy, but I'll agree with the Rafa fans who would say Roger got lucky with that draw. I mean, Roddick is Rusty, Davy forgot to serve, and Gonzo hasn't showed any kind of serious form in months, and those points came from the AO where he played brilliant and was whipped in three sets by Roger. when those three play their best they can't beat Roger.

Should (hopefully) be stress-free matches, and I'll forget about Roddick's MP last year, won't happen again.

I certainly won't look like a Kassandra, but this is dangerously easy.

I was just uncertain, because this has been out very early in Chinese, but took a lot of time to be confirmed by any other sites.

Re: ********WTF, TMC, Shanghai - Whatever you want to call it!********

the draw in out in www.masters-cup.com
hope everything will work good for roger

rafa fans think this is an easy draw for roger,so what about nadal's draw in paris

ROGER FEDERER

the recipe is simple yet but extremely rare:buckets of athletic ability coupled with gallons of mental tenacity are the core ingredients that produce a Tiger Woods,a Michael Jordan...a Roger Federer


roger is the best

On MTF are always discussions about the draws of these two players. Most of the time everything equalizes. Rafa had a more comfortable draw in Paris, whether Roger had a tougher one then. At the TMC you have the advantage that you are not out when you lose a match. Rafa still has the chance to make it through his group.

Well, you have to admit, that Roger's is easy on paper. But I don't like these draw debates anyway, the draw is what it is. Get on with it.

I don't deny this But do you really think the comments would be any different if he had Djokovic instead of Roddick or Gonzalez in his group? I mean, apart from Nadal Roger has a convincing h2h against all players.

Re: ********WTF, TMC, Shanghai - Whatever you want to call it!********

Pretty nice draw for Roger, he'll be able to play himself into form before facing Djoko or Nadal,in all likelyhood, in the semis. I know I'm jinxing him but it looks like he'll maintain his perfect record in RR matchs.

The MC surface being perfect for his game, he's also got a great opportunity to assert his nr1 ranking for next year. Good luck Roger

I read a comment from Djokovic (I'm guessing it was translanted from the Chinese press) that the surface seemed slow to him and he hoped it would get faster. I haven't heard that they changed the surface so maybe it's just Djokovic not having played on it before and needed to get used to it. I hope it hasn't been slowed down.

I think they would have said it if they had changed the surface, besides they had no reason to do that because no players complained about it last year. The surface has never been very fast but the bounce suited Roger's game perfectly, i don't hink I've ever seen him hit his BH better than in the semi and final last year : it was phenomenal
