Disgraceful draw.

Absolute cakewalk as usual for Nole. Federer will likely drop 5 games total on his way to the final. Rafa gets all the big hitters. Soderling in R1 :fiery: Never. In. Doubt. :rolleyes:

I won't be here at draw time but this will be my reaction regardless. If someone could quote this after the draw is made I'd appreciate it. Thanks :kiss:

It is really frustrating to see all the cakewalk draws that the Faker gets in Grand Slams.
I mean , look his draws in Paris 07 and 08 and Wimbledon 07 and it really makes me laugh. And even whit that cakewalk he managed to lose a set to Amer Delic :worship:

I would really like to see him getting difficult draw with some Soderling, Mahut or Ancic in the 1rd, and especially Roddick and Stepanek in his part of the draw.

Piecing together what I've heard, Fed gets Hrbaty in first round, possible second round with Soderling. Hewitt and Monfils in his section. Berdych is his 4th round potential.

Nalby is in Djokovic's quarter.

I think Roddick is in Davydenko's quarter (bottom half). Almagro in that quarter, with Mahut. Blake is in there as well I think.

10.06pm: The men's draw has now started. The positions of the seeds have now been determined. Nadal is in the same half of the draw as Nadal. Federer's half includes Roddick and Hewitt. Brit-watchers will be interested to know that Murray is in the same half of the draw as Nadal and Djokovic.


Based on the live draw, it sounds as if Roddick is in Nadal's half?

I think the quarters are:

Fed-Ferrer
Djokovic-Nalby
Denko-Roddick
Nadal-Gasquet

Absolute cakewalk as usual for Nole. Federer will likely drop 5 games total on his way to the final. Rafa gets all the big hitters. Soderling in R1 :fiery: Never. In. Doubt. :rolleyes:

How much experience has he had playing on grass? He could have a good game for fast courts but if he is not yet comfortable on grass he won't have much of an advantage on rafa....as long as rafa can maintain the form he had in queens, I am optimistic about his chances.

He was obviously at 100%, but if he was playing a major tournament, he would never withdraw from the tournament.

He was so badly injured that a couple of hours before withdrawing, he defeated Isner 6:3 6:2.

I am referring to the match Federer - Hrbaty.

Federer is the best player on grass ever and Hrbaty hates grass, has a weak serve after his injury and is still looking for some bigger win this year. Sorry Domino, I like you but this was just bad draw :D

H2H after Wimbledon then - Hrbaty vs Federer 2-1...still positive, you should retire until you have a positive H2H against Fedex. Not many players can say that :)

So that in my opinion will be the suprise QF. Rafa should make the Finals no problem.

After a cursory look:

One of these days, the draw will not be so kind to Djokovic. And then his quality will truly be tested. But not at this year's Wimbledon.

It appears that Rafa again has to go through some early wars...but if he can survive the blasting onslaught...look for him in the semis.

Roddick has some tricky matches. Janko in the second round...Mahut in the third...

Speaking of mettle tested, Roger has the toughest draw...

Dont forget about Wawrinka. possibly opponent for Djoker in 4th and Karlovic or Nalbandian in semis.

Soderling could be tricky just for second match for Roger. But overall it's a good draw for Roger until semis. Hrbaty, Soderling, monfils, hewitt/gonzo, berdych/ferrer are nothing near to Roger's standard in the grass.

NAdal has some tricky matches, stepanek or youzhny, roddick or davy are in his draw.

i think Clay Monster has a tougher draw. Fed has a free ride to the semis.

Gulbis, Youzhny, Davydenko, Roddick are all worthy opponents. Clay Monster is better than them but its still grass. he will have to work.

Fed basically has no equals on grass other than Djokovic and the Clay Monster.

that Queens win over Roddick will come in handy. Roddick will approach his match with Nadal with some doubt.

If (and perhaps it's a big if) Andy Murray can get his game together and get past Gasquet I see him causing a major upset and reaching the semis even final.

very unlucky indeed. he has the play the toughest player in the world right now.

still little tricky as Gulbis does have a dominating serve. it will take at least a set for the Clay Monster to get a good read on his serve.

Gulbis is also deadly off the ground and he goes for his shots. he is not going to win but he will make some trouble early in the match.
