cakewalk of a draw? far from it open your eyes and stop being a blind fan
dimitrov/baker in the second round is not an easy match to start the season with
examine his possible QF opponents:
melzer - beat milos in their previous encounter. Has an under rated return. Definately would be a tough test for milos
goffin- tends to save his best for the bigger events, is something that needs to change. However if he gets there and is playing well it would be interesting
ebden- could be tricky at home
and then mayer and simon are in his section as possibly semi final opponents. Florian defeated milos last year at a time when he was struggling to win matches. If he plays well he is actually the favorite over milos. His funy game really throws players like milos off
and dont count out baghdatis who ALWAYS plays milos tough. yeah milos leads the H2H but really you get the feeling that any matches between the 2 could have gone either way.
so to say milos's draw is a cakewalk is vastly underestimating everyone else. He could very well lose in the second round
having now seen the draw id think andy will win if he cares enough. However there's a couple of players here that could take it too namely baghdatis, simon, raonic and nishikori.
i will say that things worked out really nice for andy since most of the other title contenders are in the other part of the draw
