This is the type of draw he'll probably get at RG. He'll basically have to play 3 finals to win it i.e. against Fat Dave, Djoker, and Nadal. Early rounds look good though.

A good win against Denko tomorrow could change everything though.

It sure could but, let's wait and see what happens. If he has the same start as today I don't know.

To beat Denko, one of two things have to happen:

--Fed completely ups his level and plays like past years -OR-
--Denko completely chokes.

I don't see Fed winning more than 5 or 6 games with his current state of groundstrokes, return of serve, power, movement, big zit, etc. etc.

Precisely if he even manages to make it a 3-6 2-6 loss that would be something.

but there is nothing written about it in rf.com

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
