Re: 3 players defeated Federer after playing Dimitrov this season

Well, Rafa would have beaten Fraud regardless of who the opponent was in the previous match :devil:

So, I would go with coincidence.

They do seem to play similarly now (especially since Fed's BH is improved and his FH is worse) so Dimitrov probably would be an ideal preparation match before playing Federer.

I highly doubt this will be a factor in tomorrow's match, however. Whether Jo wins or loses is going to be completely independent of today's match, where Jo played extremely well and Dimitrov was clearly fatigued.

I don't know, but winning a close match after being down SPs in the 4th set (Djokovic and Rafa both did this) is bound to give you confidence in the next round.
