Fortunately the draw lacks deep and quality in Olderer`s half, so hopefully he can reach the QF against Ferrer and then get the valious 360 points of the SF`s

Very good draw apart from a possible R2 match against Ivo.

It's always tricky to play against him.

YEs, that`s right Eden, but fortunately these days IVo can be breakable at times. And do not understimate Olderer`s skills against serve-based players

Very good draw indeed. I would like to see a QF against Ferrer and a semifinal against Murray

Yes, I know, but he isn't really a player you would like to play against early in a tournament.

He won against Tomas twice within 3 months for example.

Oh well, he has to win his R1 match first - then we can still talk about a match against Roger

Rychu, thanks for opening the thread by the way - it's always nice to see new people coming to Roger's forum

Even better when they are then also courageous enough to start a tournament thread

Finaly after so many tough draws this year he receives some "help" in the USA. Let's hope for the SF, maybe against Dimitrov and after what happens happens

Thanks for opening the thread, Rychu

I like the draw, nice to see Ferrer's name in the same Q for once. Agree Karlovic is not ideal but it's basically 50% that he'll be there at all. Unlike Isner he doesn't really have an impressive TB stat.

Great draw really. Easy road to the QF, drawn with Ferrer and not in Nadal's half, possible of a Fed/Dimitrov match in the QF, nothing more I could ask for really. I'll be satisfied with a QF/SF. Of course winning would be great, but really as long as he gets back into the top 4 its good. Hoping for Fed/Dimitrov match and its seems likely seeing how Dimitrov and Federer are playing atm. Ferrer is not in great form either.

Loving the draw, should have no troubles getting to 4th seed (up from 8th just a short while ago!), not often a player jumps up 3 spots in one tournament (and with very, very close to jumping 4!).

I hope he continues to play well. Then he won't face No2e or Nadal before the semis in clay season.

Thanks for the draw & opening the Miami thread, Ruchu. It's a good draw as far as I can see & and Roger should not have too much trouble if he continues to play like he's been playing lately,(except for maybe Karlovic ?). We know anything can happen, but at least he has no points to defend there.................Allez, Roger and most of all have fun!

Mathieu is going to play against Karlovic. It`s a 50%-50% match, so maybe Federer is not going to play KArlovic but Mathieu, a compeltely diferent match for him
