Re: Not such an easy draw after all
Cincy was a good draw for Roger, and the first one in a required tournament this year. Normally his quarter is chock-full of players that he finds very difficult. He doesn't usually have any problems with Santoro or Johansson, for example, but he did last week mostly because he was tired. It wouldn't have taken much more for him to have beaten Hrbaty in straight sets - just one of those 6 bps in the second would have done. He would have struggled for the next couple of matches though. As everyone else is saying, it's better that he rests.
