Which Challenger Is This?

You Fedtards going on about how hard Federer's draw is and I totally agree with you, just look at this!

R1: Kamke (78)
R2: Ungur (92)
R3: Klizan (70) / Mahut (89)
R4: Goffin (109) / Clement (139) / Kubot (49) / Serra (156)

Only saving grace is that Beck didn't beat Kubot today as then Federer would have definitely played a player ranked outside the top 100 in R4!

What challenger is this? :facepalm:

ahahha i agree it's pretty remarkable how horribly easy Federer's draw has turned out to be, I mean it's insane that if you literally showed someone a draw of a Challenger and that of Roger's draw up to 4th round someone would probably guess which was which wrong. insane hahah, and they say Nadal rigs everything

let me to make it easy for you . even if berdych beats Fed in QF he won't win slam title, neither at this RG, neither in near future or simply said NEVER



hope now you see that you are doing sisyphus job when you are trying to eliminate Fed before berdych match

The top 3 will win their early rounds no matter who they play. It's the possible QF and SF opponents that decide the difficulty of a draw for these guys. Do you think Rafa would trade draws with Federer? Not a chance.

I never get why people waste so much time:

1) quailing at the draw when it is made, and

2) then complaining when a player's draw opens up.

You can only beat what's put in front of you - if the "threat" opponents don't make it through, then that's the way it goes. These days the first three rounds should be a cake walk to the top guys anyway because of the 32 seeding.

Federer hasn't lost before the QF in 8 years. Are lots of easy matches good preparation for a potentially tough QF opponent?

Mate, I honestly think Berdych is going to lose before the QF here anyway! With Del Potro being injured too I wouldn't be surprised if he went out before the QF as well! :facepalm:

They will in this weak era but this is insane

It did get very easy, but the thing is that even if Nalby, Lopez or whoever you want would've met Federer, he had absolutely 0% chance of losing before QF.
QF is where it gets interesting, and Fed has got by far the hardest one.

Sometimes draws open up... Nadal at the USO 2010 is an example. Djokovic also had a relatively easy draw at Wimbledon last year IMO.

Now don't try to make sense in here, it's forbidden ;)

Nadal Wimbledon 2010:

R128 Kei Nishikori 189
R64 Robin Haase 151
R32 Philipp Petzschner 41
R16 Paul-Henri Mathieu 66

Similar numbers, but will probably turn out to be much easier than Fed's (by rank alone).
Nadal still ended up nearly losing to two of them :lol:

I know :rolls:. I can't even imagine if Federer loses to one of these inexperienced players (well maybe except Kubot). But it's not like Old man Stepanek or Rodduck would have stood a chance anyway.

Djokovic's next two rounds aren't hard either. Kavcic and then Berrer (or Devilder).

No, how hard it would have been. On paper it looked the most difficult, but there was always the chance that it would open up (as there is/was with all the other sections of the draw). :shrug:

It's rly the R4 and Qf that decide if the draw is hard or easy for the top guys. R4 is 1st round in which they can get dangerous opponent ranked in TOP16, R1,2 and 3 are easy for them, maybe only Murray can lose to some unseeded player at slams, not TOP3...

Ungur and Klizan are good claycourters and Serra has pushed Roger in the past and is French, so the draw isn't quite as easy as it seems.

Loving a sport means being irrational about what's going to happen in the early rounds of a tournament?

The draw is fine, wouldn't want Olderer "tired" for his second week. Too bad Rodmug and most of his other pigeons suck on clay, could have really boosted him to SF with less than 5 hours on court.

Roger can beat pretty much anyone in GS before QF anyway. And he's not winning RG, so don't worry Jase, this is merely anecdotic :p

And this is somehow Fed's fault?

Maybe with the way the draw opened up for Roger (not his fault, of course), we will stop hearing about the cup-cake draw Rafa had for the US Open in 2010. Not his fault, either. A player can only beat whoever is accross the net. Simple as that. :)

safin, kuerten and ancic are too weak to beat federer.
sad about their absence at fed the crying victim's slam victory parties.

rodduck was forced to lick federer's gold shoes in the wimbledon match. anyone with A conscience would've mercifully pulled rodduck out of tennis in 2004.
