Relativity in interpreting draws...

A forthnight ago had someone came here and tell us that Roger will win it by defeating, in succession - Andreev, Hanescu, Montanes, Hewitt, Davydenko, Tsonga , Murray - I think the majority have said it is quite a tough draw...

Now, after the war is over, many of us, esp. the haters, incline to say it was too easy of a draw, with chokers left and right and a lucky game for Roger...

How is it, really ?

What kind of a draw was it DownUnder for Roger in 2010 ?

Davydenko and Murray are the two toughest players to face right now.

Actually his opponents were:
R1: russian choker
R2: romanian loser
R3: clay courter
R4: injured legend
QF: the world-famous fixer
SF: french clown
F: scottish gs midget
Is it a hard draw? :eek:

Hewitt and Andreev fall into the "not as good as they used to be" catagory.
Murray and Davydenko fallinto the "Grand Slam choker" catagory.
Tsonga was just plain lucky.

Overall - Not the easiest draw he's ever had, but by no means the toughest.

Ok, so of his 16 GS titles, which one was the toughest 7 guys he faced?
