Tennis will never win with Federer and Ferrer drawn together. If you want Ferrer in the QF, at least draw him against one of the other top 4 seeds. Federer vs Ferrer is just Probably the biggest mismatch in the Open Era between top 10 players, surely in recent years.

Tennis survives that match-up and then wins through the rest of the tournament

I voted for Delpo

It's already a good tournament as for the first time in three years it will be impossible for Fed to lose to Djokovic in the semis from MP up

I think Andy Murray has a chance, and I'd love to see him win a Slam. I think Federer could definitely do it too.

Also, I think Federer would rather have Nadal on his side of the draw than Murray. Whoever gets Murray between Djoko and Federer will have to battle out really hard on saturday, Nadal probably wont even get to SF and I think even if he gets there the courts might be too fast and low bouncing for him to cause problems to Federer.
Agree, whoever gets Murray will end up playing a very long SF.

Nadal-Verdasco is even worse, as Nando actually had the weaponry and decent matchup (certainly off clay anyway) to be competitive whereas Federer-Ferrer should be one sided cause the first-strike game takes Ferrer out of the picture.

Verdasco at least played some good tennis a few times before inevitably choking in clutch moments, and he even won once. Not to mention that epic AO 2009 encounter.

Ferrer has won three sets in 13 matches against Federer and only forced one tiebreak: http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/...=F401&oId=F324
It's just ridiculously one-sided, never seen anything like it between two players who were in the top 5.

Federer drawing Ferrer in USO would not be good for tennis, only good for Federer really, who'd probably get a free pass to the semis. If Ferrer makes the QF, let's hope he faces one of the other top 4 seeds: not that he has any chance of winning, but at least he will make the match competitive before choking.

Really looking forward to this one as I think there are 5 genuine contenders with none of them really a stand out favourite. Djokovic and Federer will obviosly be the two favourites, Murray is in the form of his life and the gold medal could inspire him, Potro also had a great olympics on his worst surface and is a previous champion here and you can never count out Nadal. Then there is also Tsonga and Berdych, they probably don't have the consistency to win but they are of course capable of beating anyone on their day.
