Not a bad draw.

Hopefully Dull plays so he can get crushed in the finals if he makes it there.

Again, it could be come to an Encounter against Haas, if he's fit

But overall, I can't complain about the Draw. A Roger-Rafa Final would be my dream. 2nd wish would be Kohli-Roger in the Final.

Is anyone going to Halle? I'm there from Thursday till Sunday (Weekend Package). We could meet and make a 'MTF Federer Express Forum' Celebration
It's the 5th Time for me in Halle (2010-2014). Last Year Roger won, it was very special. Hopefully he will produce some magic again

You are soooooo lucky :envious::jealous: There may be advantages to living on an island with marvellous beaches and year-round sunshiine, but seeing Roger live isn't one of them (The sports tourism people did try to get him for an exhibition a few years back, but his fee was too high for a small nation of 240,000 souls.. lol)

Hope you can repeat last year's luck and see a Fed win.

It's a pity you can't see him live (at least once in your Life). Would be nice to see some Users in Person.

Didn't know about it. But don't write that Part with the too high Fee in GM here on MTF. People will think they get their confirmation, that Roger is an arrogant, money-grubbing Man

nah.. I wouldn't do that... it's a simple matter of our being too small to afford what I guess would have been his regular/standard fee - and i doubt he had any part in the negotiations anyhow

one question Tony2003, why on earth would you dream of a Roger-Rafa final? Let's be realistic, at 33 the odds are that the outcome would be a Roger defeat. For me that is a nightmare, not a dream

They never played on Grass since Wimby 2008. It would be awesome if they met in Halle in the Final. If Roger and we want another Wimbledon Title, he has to defeat every Player. I think a Final against Rafa would be good for the Estimation of his current Game. It would be a good Preparation for Wimbledon.

Statistics Smatistics I still believe Roger can win against Rafa. Even on Clay And even in a Slam

So that Rafa can get another win against an old/past his prime Roger on his favourite surface, increase the h2h to 24-10 so that his tards can gloat more? No thanks

Why you all so negative? Roger can still beat him Besides, it's Bo3 His best Chance to beat Rafa is either here/Wimbledon or on Indor Hard. Am I the only here who believe so?
