You'd expect him to beat those players but I don't see how it could have been much harder.

You'd also expect Nadal to beat Soderling. Doesn't make it an easy draw.

c14's draw analysis:

rafa does not have an easy draw.

R1: Nishikori
R2: Blake
R3: Gulbis
R4: Youzhny/Isner
QF: Soderling
SF: Murray
F: Federer/Hewitt/Roddick

Onto other sections of the draw, I think Hewitt can take out Djokovic in 4th round if they both get that far, and then possibly a rematch of Hewitt/Roddick QF which would be great :)

Federer has a piss easy draw until the SF, when I think it will be whoever survives between Hewitt and Roddick.

Murray has a pretty light draw, should be able to last until the SF where he will most likely play the winner of Soderling/Rafa.

i have a feeling the semis will be Federer vs. winner of Hewitt/Roddick, and Murray vs. winner of Soderling/Rafa.

Well I was most afraid of him meeting good big serving ball bashers in the early rounds, which he hasn't. The way it is his he's got his luck in his own hands, he'll get the chance to control all of his matches until the semis. But he's got to play really good tennis, and obviously if he doesn't do that on his favorite surface in the most important tournament for him then he's got only himself to blame.
Nadal-Soderling for example is different because when Soderling plays his game then on fast surfaces you simply can't control the match against him.

Once again, it's a clear conspiracy against Rafa. Fed virtually has a bye into the semi-final. Rafa has to play in every round players who have beaten him or seriously troubled him in the past. First the insult of not making the best player in the world the top seed, and now this. Wonder what the AELTC will come up with next to ruin Nadal's tournament. Watch the roof mechanism fail when it rains during Rafa's matches...

Must be looking at a different draw. Since when are Ram, Llodra and Fish not big serving ball bashers?

Kohlschreiber and Cilic both proved they're more than capable of beating him at slams. Hewitt is the Halle champion. Fish made the Queens final. How much harder can it get?

Well Nadal has to beat them all if he has to justify his top spot.
When you put Federer against the likes of Blake, Gulbis , Youzny, Isner, soderling, murray, he will most of the time take them out, but when you put them as early as round 2, or round 3, federer's going to struggle and may even loose. but the thing that baffles me is, why hasnt federer even given a test in his opening matches and has literally handed over a free pass till SF.
Somethings amiss and it doesnt sound right.

But having said that champions go through toughest of matches and come out winning and Nadal needs to prove that he is made of one.

I'm not gonna whine a lot but this draw is just ridiculous. In each round Rafa has the most difficult possible opponent. He almost lost to Gulbis, Youzhny and Soda here few years ago. Nishikori and Blake are not easy either. Meanwhile in first three matches Roger has to play Falla, Massu and Robredo... I have never seen an easier draw.
Good draw for Kubot- he can get past first round and maybe play a good match with Gulbis. It would awesome if Kubot could play Nadal in R3!

Could remember Delpo couple of years ago when he was winning those 250 and 500 events and was always drawing federer or nadal as early as 2nd round in almost all slams that year and lost
He came out strong and took out federer and nadal last year. Thats what champion stuffs are made of, and i am hoping nadal has the game to do the same to take out ball bashers, Rafa has the heart, but does he have the game against the soo called ball bashers.

Nishikori has hip problems (retired again) and Blake just came back form the knee injury so not at his best obviously, Gulbis isn't even sure to play yet but hopefully will. So who knows, maybe Kubot can really beat Gulbis.

Meanwhile in first three matches Roger has to play Falla, Massu and Robredo...

Nadal isn't losing before the Quarterfinal (which is his worst case scenario, btw).

Players like Nishikori, Blake (lol on grass?), and Gulbis can test Nadal but Nadal is just better than them on Grass. The two players who I think will be Nadal's biggest before the final are Soderling and Murray, who are both in his half.

It is a tough draw for him to win the title if everyone makes it far enough to play him, but then, if that happens, he will still be the favorite when the match starts in all of his matches, and will be expected to beat the likes of Soderling and Murray. A very big test for Nadal but I think he will get past them like in 07 when most thought he wouldn't make it to the final (he beat the likes of Berydch, Youzhny, Djokovic, and so on that year).

I am quite happy with Federer's draw, I hope he does well. :)

Comparing fed and rafa


Round. Fed. Rafa

R1. Falla. Nishkori
R2. Massu. Blake
R3. Robredo. Gulbis
R4. Melzer. Isner/youhzny
QF. Davy/berdych Soderling
SF. Roddick. Murray
F. Nadal. Fed

On paper looks like rafa has considerably the tougher draw. Rafa could face trio of big servers in gulbis, isner and soderling in consecutive rounds. If rafa can come through this draw and take fed out it will be an amazing accomplishment.

I still stand with my prediction fed vs roddick and rafa vs murray semi finals
Final rafa vs roddick
Winner rafa


Go rafa
Go fed

Soderling and murray being in his half is one thing but drawn to play them both consecutively is entirely the other. Here nadal will play sod in qf and murray in the sf. Tough job for the world number one. I would love to see a fedal final as these are two of my fav players. If one had to get a tough draw i would ask for nadal to get it. Fed in my mind would not have survived nadals draw this year. So it all works out good. Although i think roddick will beat fed in the sf.

Everybody is a mug for rafa on clay. Even fed is his boytoy there. Draws are irrelevant for world number one rafael nadal on clay.

And this tough draw for wimbledon will be peanuts too. By the time he gets to the semis he will have faced so any tough matchers and big servers that murray/fed/roddick will be straights.

Murray can't even take a set off Nadal on grass. Soderling would have been a threat if he Nadal didn't just figure him out. Nadal tends to do that, like he did to Blake over the years, look at their head-to-head...

How'd the Queens form work for you in 2006 and 2007, because Nadal only made the QF of Queens both those years too. Grass is the kind of surface you get better with each round. I've seen plenty of top players not even look good at Wimbledon until the 2nd week, much less Queens. There has even been talk that playing on grass for too long can hurt your groundstrokes. Hingis was the first player I heard say this, her timing tended to go off by the semis, though she scraped through the 1997 Final after losing the first set to Navotna. Not saying this is the case for Nadal, but there really is nothing to be achieved by playing great early in Wimbledon. I'm just curious to see whether anyone can force Nadal to play 5 sets. It has become a very rare event.

And of course, Nishikori again getting fucked over by the draw gods and has to play Nadal 1st round

Lopez and possibly Berdych are the only ones I can see stopping Federer before the SF, Hewitt-Roddick in the QF unless Djokovic or Monfils have anything to say.

Murray has no excuse not to make the SF, unless Tsonga gets his act together or someone goes on a run in that quarter. Nadal's draw isn't kind, Nishikori 1st round, Blake 2nd round, Gulbis 3rd round, Isner/Youzhny 4th round, Soderling/Bellucci/Baghdatis QF, Murray in the SF, and Federer/Roddick/Hewitt in the final.

Federer-Berdych
Hewitt-Roddick
Tsonga-Murray
Baghdatis-Nadal

Nadals "dangerous" first opponents were all sidelined due to injury and have barely any match practise on grass.

Remains to see if they can really give the Spaniard a struggle, I doubt it. Soderling could be dangerous on the surface, but he also has not played a single match on grass.
And he has a tricky opponent in the first round, Gilbert will not be easy.

Roddick has the thoughest draw by far.

Lopez and possibly Berdych are the only ones I can see stopping Federer before the SF, Hewitt-Roddick in the QF unless Djokovic or Monfils have anything to say.

Murray has no excuse not to make the SF, unless Tsonga gets his act together or someone goes on a run in that quarter. Nadal's draw isn't kind, Nishikori 1st round, Blake 2nd round, Gulbis 3rd round, Isner/Youzhny 4th round, Soderling/Bellucci/Baghdatis QF, Murray in the SF, and Federer/Roddick/Hewitt in the final.

My QF predictions:

Federer-Berdych
Hewitt-Roddick
Tsonga-Murray
Baghdatis-Nadalyou have to wonder how fit Tsonga is, i'd take him out and replace him with Verdasco

Murray better get his act together

I'm tempted to make another poll now that we've seen the draw, but I'm not willing to risk the moderators' wrath. Someone with more clout should decide whether we need a second poll; I think it could be interesting, however, to see what the general consensus is now that the draw has been made.

Interesting first rounders:

Tipsarevic-Clement
Tursunov-Schuettler
Wawrinka-Istomin
Lu-Zeballos
Tomic-Fish
Monfils-Mayer
Djokovic-Rochus
Koubek-Nieminen
Querrey-Stakhovsky
Ferrero-Malisse
Tsonga-Kendrick
Soderling-Ginepri
Ferrer-Kiefer
Youzhny-Sela
De Bakker-Giraldo
Isner-Mahut
Haase-Blake

Annoyed Roddick is on the same side of the draw as Fed. He has a tough draw too with Hewitt, Cilic, Petzschner and Kohlschreiber all lingering.

:rolleyes: at Montanes once again getting a free pass to the third round of a slam.

Melzer could finally play Federer in the fourth round but I think Lopez will spoil the party.

Will be interesting to see how Nadal does. I think he'll make the final unless Youzhny or Tsonga steps up.

Nadals "dangerous" first opponents were all sidelined due to injury and have barely any match practise on grass.

Remains to see if they can really give the Spaniard a struggle, I doubt it. Soderling could be dangerous on the surface, but he also has not played a single match on grass.
And he has a tricky opponent in the first round, Gilbert will not be easy.

Roddick has the thoughest draw by far.

I think Nadal has a great draw, because he's avoiding Hewitt and Roddick. I think Hewitt has a huge chance at going far, he's in great form. And I think Roddick can either stretch Federer/Nadal to 5 sets or beat them. And I think Murray has never displayed great form on grass, especially against Nadal who thrashed Murray in Wimbledon 2008 straight sets. I think Nadal has learned a lot about Soderling this year (in the exhibition early in the year, and Roland Garros), and we'll see that matchup become very one-sided over the next year (especially on grass). Soderling has a much better chance on hardcourt than grass.

Also I think its worth noting that Nadal has less pressure on him than any World Number One ever has. Because he knows every round he wins is a bigger lead in the rankings, while every round Federer faces more pressure than ever, knowing he has to win Wimbledon just to avoid dropping further behind Nadal. You couldn't ask for a better frame of mind coming into Wimbledon than Nadal has. Same applies to the American Hardcourt season where Nadal isn't defending any titles, and is always consistent at reaching SFs anyway, while Federer has to win the US Open to prevent a slip.

And with Llodra now winning Eastbourne, definitely his toughest ever Wimby draw.

The most dangerous player after Fed & Nadal is Roddick. If you think about it, Fed is the unlucky one here. Just like at RG where the 3rd dangerous player was Soderling. Fed got Soderling in his half, and we all know what happened. Now, I don't see anyone stopping Roddick getting to the SF, well maybe Hewitt. But if Roddick get to the SF, he's gonna have a good chance of defeating Fed there. Just like Soderling at RG.

All of you saying that Nadal is the unlucky one with this draw, just think about it for a moment. Nishikori & Blake will do sh*t against Nadal. Gulbis & Isner might take a set, but that's it. Soderling is a tough one, but not nearly as tough as Roddick on grass. And Murray, he's in crap form. And I can see most of them not even making it to face Nadal.

Agree, the headline at yahoo tennis is "Roger Federer handed tough draw for Wimbledon" http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/news?slug=ap-wimbledon-draw
WIMBLEDON, England (AP)—Roger Federer was handed a tough draw Friday in his bid for a record-equaling seventh Wimbledon title.

The defending champion and top-seeded Federer was drawn in the same top half with Andy Roddick, Novak Djokovic and former champion Lleyton Hewitt.

Federer beat Roddick in a marathon five-set final last year.

Second-seeded and 2008 winner Rafael Nadal has Andy Murray and Robin Soderling in the bottom half of the draw.

Federer, winner of 16 Grand Slam titles, will open Monday against Colombia’s 65th-ranked Alejandro Falla. Federer hasn’t lost a set in four previous matches with Falla, including a 6-1, 6-2, 6-0 rout at Wimbledon in 2004 and 6-1, 6-2 win on grass in Halle, Germany, last week.

Nadal plays Japan’s Kei Nishikori in the first round.

Cakewalk for Federer and Murray and nightmare for Nadal, Roddick and Djokovic. Doesn't mean much though, I always find discussion of the draw early in the tournament usually becomes moot a few rounds in when half of the supposed threats have already lost. I remember thinking Nadal had f all chance of winning either Wimby 07 or Oz Open 09 with his draws and he almost won both those so we'll wait and see what happens...

This. Roddick's draw could have been worse. He gets Federer in his half, but at least not in his quarter. And Federer is beatable these days, so he really should just focus on making it through his section. That's not guaranteed by any means.

I don't think you'll see Nadal drop a set, Soderling's lack of grass practice. Gulbis no chance, Murray no chance (Nadal beat him in straight sets in 2008 Wimbledon, the year Murray made the USO Final). Blake, long gone from the elite. Nadal's 1st round opponent, no experience, ranked over 200 etc. The two guys to be afraid of are Roddick (took Nadal to final set tie-breaker at Queens 2008) and Hewitt (always hard to put away on grass when in form). Federer's got it worse, plus the fact Federer has to win Wimbledon to keep up in the rankings, while Nadal moves further ahead with each round. Not much pressure on Nadal.

2008 Australian Open: Federer defeated Tipsarevic 6-7 7-6 5-7 6-1 10-8
Also, Federer has the in-form Tipsarevic (he's in the UNICEF Open Final this week) in the 3rd round.

Nishikori is in no shape to bother Nadal, but I'm sure he'll be able to take some positives from that match. Tomic will have it rough against Fish. Berankis has a chance against Ball. Hopefully Gulbis can win his first round and take it from there.

Quite a tricky first match for Söderling.

Belucci-Gulbis hardly the emincence on grass IMO.

Federer last year from the 3rd round to win.. Kohlschreiber , Soderling , Karlovic, Hass just to get to the final vs Roddick.

Still have to agree that Nadal´s draw is tougher than Federer´s, especially if Soderling and Murray live up to their seeding.
