Federer was waiting to see who he had to face. He will withdrew now, he sands no chance against the warlocq.

Roger revealed that his body is actually in pain after Madrid. Maybe, its a strategy to soften the merciless heart of the Warlocq. Hope it works.

How many bagels have Warlocq served this year?

Easy victory for Carlos. His peak level is higher. If Federer withdraws we know why too

This.
If Federer wins, it'd be very difficult to him to stop Berlocq making a bagel.

Berlocq in 4. Come on!

Agreed, the skill of the warlocq will be so great that the crowd will, on the pain of death, ask for a best of 3 game.

6-0, 7-6(19), 0-6, 6-0

Of course Berlocq, who has played awful for months because of an injury, arrives in-form precisely for the tournament where Federer has to face him :rolleyes:

Just like Raonic had super-conditions for him in Madrid when he had to play Fed, and lost in first round when he had to face Nadal ... The same happened for Raonic in Indian Wells and Miami, Roddick played great against Fed in Miami after playing awful in Indian Wells, last year Del Potro for Nadal in Madrid, Tsonga in Wimbledon, Baghdatis in Indian Wells 2010 ... I can tell you following those things closely, I can't count the number of times things like that have happened in the last two years :rolleyes:

Fed used to be lucky with draws but for 2 years, always always bad luck, sometimes with the draw in the beginning, sometimes with the form of the opponent ... it has been a constant for 2 years, I can tell you really :shrug:

I say that objectively, and I know haters will say the opposite because they are subjective or don't pay attention to Fed,
also because Fed has usually dealt well with it : quite often he has managed to go through bad draws in the last two years comparing to his opponents (well, from my objective side of views, Djokovic is someone who has been unlucky with draws usually, nearly from the start of his carreer, Murray has been very lucky, the luckiest, either with the draw or form of his opponents for at least 2 years, Nadal has also been quite lucky for 2 years, less than Murray but still, and he didn't have that luck in the past - it's impressive how draws often favour some players and not some others, in the 90s I was always impressed how Agassi was favoured by draws).

I hope Fed will manage to go through once again but that's not certain at all : Berlocq is like that, some weeks he makes 6-1 6-3s everywhere, some weeks he's in complete different form, from what he did to Kavcic who is a good player, he's in good form this week.

And Berlocq's kind of play with a lot of spin is not good for Roger.

That said, Fed has at least the chance to have a good quarterfinal a priori if he arrives there (but Monfils is also in quite a good form after Berlocq).

PS : I'm probably the only serious poster in this thread, what a surprise :rolleyes:

Not the best idea to play Rome but have no choice need to get use to the red clay...

ServeVolley

Glad Roger decided to play. He needs the practice on red clay, and potentially being seeded #2 for RG can only help his chances there (I'm not sure how far he needs to go in Rome to ensure that - would a SF be enough?)

So, vs. Mr Berlocq I predict victory in two... 6-4 6-3

Not always, but I've definitely noticed Federer has been unlucky with draws in general since US Open 2009. His quarter-final draws in Grand Slams have been horrid, among other events.

You're right...I thought it was sarcasm but if not, it's pretty hilarious that it has come to this.

Guys, I'm not sure Berlocq counts as an unlucky draw.

you're right, I realized later that I exaggerated : the reason is that I had memorized that Berlocq had been shit last months because of his injury, and when I saw the draw I really thought Fed was very lucky.

When I saw that he beat Kavcic 6-1 6-3 I realized that Berlocq had gone beyond that phase and had a disappointment moment which resulted into that post ... being inspired/traumatized by a real experience I've mentioned that Fed has been very often unlucky with the draws or form of his opponents in the last 2 years (not before).

But about Roma and Berlocq the truth is that, for once, Fed has been lucky with the draw because Berlocq is a good claycourt player (played vey well in south America in february) but in a Masters 1000 tournament, it's normal for a top-player to face good opponents from the first round, sometimes very good like Raonic last week or Nalbandian today (not Mayer who is a very good player but on clay can't trouble Nadal because you need power to trouble Nadal on clay)

Then yes, this post was badly inspired.

However, all the funny posts make Berlocq look as a bad player, which he's not at all.

The truth is between.
