In that time he has racked up 24 wins against all of them combined. 24-1 is pretty dominant from where I'm standing.
Even though Roger has amazing stats on hard against all these guys I hope he still comes into this tournament as a man on a mission. Like he did at the beginning of his SF match against Nadal last year. He was just cracking the shit out of the ball and Nadal didn't know what hit him.

I think Roger saves the best for the year end, thinking that there is a nice break ahead, he gives it all. Good luck!

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

Good draw for Fed, but in all fairness, there couldn't be a difficult group for him with the players present. Djoko on his side would've made it more difficult but even then he would've at least finished 2-1. The players that would make it difficult for Fed are Nalbandian and Murray.

In any case, Fed will likely have to face Djoko and Nadal back-to-back in the SF's and F's. He could theoretically beat the #2, #3, #4, and #5 players in the world and nobody will make a big deal of it because it's EXPECTED of him. It's difficult being the Expected Winner. Nothing much to gain, a lot to lose everytime you toe up to the service line which is what causes a lot of his grumpiness on court.

Very well said indeed.

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

yes,a expected winner has too much pressure,even it seems that rogi has a good draw, he should carefully play every match .
before getting the title,must be careful.

I agree with you for the most part but I've always got the impression that Roger is really relaxed at ther TMC and just enjoys himself.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
