Federer vs Ljubicic ...after that if he wins he'll play nalbandian and if he makes it to semi's he'll meet safin

bottom
coria vs agassi winner to prob meet hewitt, who might get challenged by matthieu
roddick vs blake....after that moya...

Of course, the best draw since the AO, as it should be.
Roger has too many tough matches ahead of him, but the most dangerous one should be the one vs. Ljubicic. Once he gets past that, I'm pretty optimistic about his chances of defending his title, though.
It'll be interesting.

Nalbandian is underrated imho and he will be a good test for Federer.

I watched the Bjorkman-Nalbandian match, they both played like shit.

yes nalbandian didnt played good today, but becuase nalbandian plays better every round he passes, look in the australian open of this year he started winning a long 5 setter match playing badly against ferrer and he ended his way in a great match loosing to hewitt 8-10 in the 5th set.

Ljubicic might stretch Federer but playing Nalbandian has to be really bad news for Federer. Can't see Federer defending this title.

So true. But Bjorkman was shittier.

a Federer-Nalbandian match will be really fantastic to watch, we dont have one since that great quarterfinal last year in australian open when federer won in 4 long and difficult sets to nalbandian.

If they get to face in the QF, I don't know if David will win, but at least I know for sure that I'll be watching a great match!

my preferred possibility of all: :angel:

Kiefer beating Federer in the quarterfinal and making the h2h 4-3 in favour of Kiefer :devil: ;)

If Kiwi makes it that far, maybe Kiefer can beat him again in Indian Wells, it happened in 2001 already, and this was one of the worst years he had. So when he's in good shape, you never know :p
