Re: ******************Wimbledon 2012 ********************

It looks great : maybe the chance he was looking for

Llodra and Müller might be tricky, and even Llodra might have been really dangerous, but I read in the French media that Llodra had a few physical concerns lately. He can still play, and is used to playing well with physical concerns, but doesn't look at his best. Lost to Istomin 6-3 6-4 in Eastbourne, a tournament he used to win.

Müller gave some problems to Nadal last year but he lost to Malisse this week.

Benneteau can play on grass of course.

One never knows but still that looks good comparing to what it might have been.

Re: ******************Wimbledon 2012 ********************

A whole bunch of accomplished S&V/grasscourt geniuses filling Wogie's quarter in the draw. Benneteau, Mahut, Llodra, McBandian, Isner, Falla can all play good tennis here. I think he will be tested in his first few rounds but assume QF appearance to be a lock anyways.

Re: ******************Wimbledon 2012 ********************

Wow... The easiest draw of the top 3, I believe...

Tsonga in Nadal's, Berdych in Nole's.

Weird.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

Re: ******************Wimbledon 2012 ********************

Good draw. But Roger needs to mantain fresh at the end but seen by other side heneeds one or two tough matches before the SF to get more mobile and angry.
Easy wins can make him arrive too relaxed.
Falla is one who playes well on the grass. Last year he did very well.

Llodrà can't give many problems to Roger - we saw it in the past on fast surfaces.
And if I remember as red he gave some problems to Roger at Wibledon.

So now the SW isn't easy - Berdych is better but Roger has to be focussed as his best

Why not a final with a winner RF and a runner JWT - it's good dreaming.
Now go step by step. Two weeks are long

Thank you Alex!
Decent draw from the first looks at it. That said - draws don't matter, it's what a player manages to make of it.

If that happens... Oh my god, I can't imagine how happy I would be.

Re: ******************Wimbledon 2012 ********************

Heck i hope Rogi isn't as nervous as i am. This always happens in Wimbledon.

Anyway what i hope for is that he will finish some matches quickly to preserve freshness. He will need it if he manages to come to semis against either (i presume) Djoko or Berdych.
So no 5-setters in first 4 rounds please.

Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric


P.S. Watch out for Donna Vekic and Borna Coric, 2020. Hopman cup winners. - posted in 2011, let's see if it happens

Re: ******************Wimbledon 2012 ********************

Good draw. I don't think it's so cakewalk-y that he won't get tests along the way however, which is the ideal situation to be in.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo
