That didn't work out well for him at the French Open this year.

I don't deny he's a god player, and him being #4 is not truly undeserved. But you have to admit he's been benefiting from very unlikely circumstances for the last year!

sigh, as if Fed got Nadal in his Quarter....I guess it's not much worse than getting Tsonga or Birdman.

He didn't drop a set till the finals, that's very impressive, regardless of the opponents And he was projected to meet with Federer, who is the worst possible matchup for him (other than Nadal), not his fault he got Tsonga instead.

Well Nadal has to beat Fed Murray and then Novak to win the title, not gonna happen I think. Well another bad news is that Ferrer will stay in the top 4 for God knows how long. He will continue to make a mockery of slam draws

Gulbis-Tsonga R2

Great draw for Ferrer, there'll be a lot of tears on MTF if Delpo even makes the QF.
Cilic "should" make R4, but IMO Baghdatis mustn't be underrated despite his loss to Berlocq this week.
Fed to give Nadal a grass lesson in QF and go on to win the title.

Fed probably has better chance meeting Nadal early while grass is in better condition, would be a huge win for him to jump start his season

F.Mayer-Djokovic match should be the 1st round blockbuster.

JJ has a quite nice draw in first 3 matches, but the worst possible opponent to meet in early rounds waiting for him if he gets to 4th round. Still, his best result at GS so far is very doable.

Kubot should get past Andreev. Nadal in 2nd will be too much.

Polish Fed v. Petzschner will be a tough one, but not without chances. Could be much worse.

Tsonga's draw is very hard and his chances for another semi are slim.

Delpo is probably too bad atm to go far even with that draw he has.

No way that Federer, at his age and past his prime, will be able to beat Nadal and Murray in consecutive matches.

No, because Grigor will take care of the Agentine before... and next year Ferrer will drop out of the top 4

Djokovic will win Wimbledon easily. What a cream puff draw for the Serb. Wow. This is one of the most lopsided draws ever. Murray, Federer, Nadal and Tsonga in the same half.
