No Stepanek or Ancic in his quarter. I like that. What are Monfils results on grass? I can't imagine with how far back he stands in the court that he'd have a lot of success on the surface.

Okay draw. A few dangerous people on the way to the SF, but nothing that should worry Roger on this surface.

.Roger Federer.

well to be honest we shouldn't care where Djokovic is.

I mean. Thats in the 6th game. If Roger didn't win against him it means he wouldn't win the tournament in the final afterall. So It doesn't really matter that much.

I'm actually looking forward to a possible Roger-Djokovic match in the semis, I'm getting rather tired of hearing that Roger can't defeat Djokovic, I'd like Roger to this wrong. And if he's not good enough to defeat Djokovic so be it. As for the draw, Soderling in the second round could be tough but hopefully a slightly tougher draw means Roger will be playing well from the beginning. Good luck Roger

true, if he isn't good enough to beat Djokovic, so be it. If Roger want's to be the best ever he needs to overcome his challengers, not to be afraid of them.

Agree as long as we talk about Wimby - It is his kingdom and everything but victory is unacceptable.

But generally speaking it isn't true. I see 250 pts difference between losing semi and final. And personally I think that the direct matches with Djokovic or Nadal are not so important looking the big picture. There is weeks as №1, GSs won, Masters won and so on. And trust me I don't mind if he win them playing against "second hand" players.

But now - yes: this is grass and very special one - Wimbeldon so I dont care who is who - they all must be conquered!

He lost to Denko at wimbledon last year quite an accomplishment

I don't know why but I'm not worried at all Roger's gonna lose to Djokovic and I still feel he would beat Rafa

Why am I not worried ? I'm sure Roger will find a way to prove me wrong

That's because Roger's always # 1 and the best ever

Not according to the Rafa forum where everyone is "betting for the big win " as we speak


Funny to see you lurking here again, I sense you've warmed up to him since RG

If Roger keeps his form, it should be a routine path to the final.

I think he will win if he meets Novak in the SF.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Again? I always lurk here little grasshopper. I only don't post very often except when there is a change to make some brilliant remarks on Fed

What a freudian slip Even if you won't admit it, your subconscious has realized you've changed your opinion on Roger
