Re: Buckle down and clench your teeth - USO 2012

Not a brutal draw, for a change. Still, won't be easy, Delpo especially.
Having Ferrer in the SF is easier than Murray, for sure, but he will be just as tiresome to beat.

Agreed but Delpo is having recurring wrist problems so he might not even make it to the Quarters.

Nole does not like easy draws And I am not sure Ferrer will make SF.

Re: Buckle down and clench your teeth - USO 2012

His draw is looking quite good Of course Delpo can be dangerous, but apart from that I obviously prefer having Ferrer to Murray in semis.

Zero regrets.

Re: Buckle down and clench your teeth - USO 2012

Obviously nothing is taken for granted (except Lorenzi, who I should be safe in saying is unjinxable), but pretty hilarious draw on paper

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Dolgo / Fed / Baker / Alund / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

Dream of a draw, very doable. I know Delpo can be dangerous (he's the only one to win USO other than the Magnificent 3), but Nole loves these courts and he will be very motivated. For once Fed has a tough draw and Nole doesn't have Murray in his half.

Of course a relatively easy draw doesn't guarantee anything.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

Re: Buckle down and clench your teeth - USO 2012

SF: Ferrer, not Murray
QF: Del Potro, not Tsonga, Tipsy, Berdych
R4: Dolgo, not Gasquet, Raonic, Simon
R3: Benneteau, not Verdasco, Seppi, Querrey, Youzhny, Troicki, Lopez, Chardy

Prefer Ferrer to Murray / Dolgo to Raonic / Benneteau to Seppi or Querrey
But I don't think it's an easy draw. Is this SF effect? (Did they do this to disprove conspiracy theories? ) Or this looks easier than it actually is because of all the tough draws that he's gotten this year? Anyway like you guys said, nothing is guaranteed. One match at a time!

Re: Buckle down and clench your teeth - USO 2012

Nole got a really good draw. Happy that he'll only have to face Mugray or Fed

But I hope he faces Fed, Mugray seems to be playing well lately
