Fed always has problems against Kiwi since Kiwi is able to disrupt Fed's rhythm. Kiwi must be liking his chances against Fed this year since he has started playing a lot better and Fed is in a slump.
I think Fed still has enough game to get through in 3 (maybe even in a 3rd set tie-break).

There was a stretch a few years ago when Kiefer played Federer in almost every big tournament and Kiefer was about the only player to take sets off Federer at the time. So Kiefer definitely has something.

Kiefer is pretty talented, and he is one of the few players with a win against Federer on grass (in 2002 for this same tournament) plus he won a set in Wimbledon and served for the fourth so he is a pretty difficult match up for the swiss but i think as usual Federer will win in two but it could be a "tight" match , something like 64 75.

Fed would have to outchoke him to lose.
I doubt that will happen.
