Is what we hear in every thread. So before the RG draw, name the worst possible opponents in each round for


- Djokovic
- Federer
- Nadal


Or whoever else you might want to add.

djokovic should handle everyone easily..
a clear danger for federer is Monfils in the early rounds and every "on fire" opponent will take him out.
difficult to tell about Nadal though.

Im just hoping no Nadal/Berdych qf, and Kei not in Noles half.

Of course Roger will draw Monfils. Of course he will. He always has to draw that clown when he's not at his best.

I don't want to see Clownfils, Schwartzman, Cuevas, or Kyrgios in Roger's draw.

Nole's tough opponents: Nadal, Murray, Kei, Isner, Raonic, Karlovic, Dolgopolov. Everything else is walk in the park.
Kei should be more problematic because Andy had a break. Isner should be more dangerous than Raonic.

On a good day Fed could still trouble Novak, a la 2011.

For once, that would be nice! that 4th seed for Berd...

Dolgopolov will run out of gas some time or another, as with Murray unless we see otherwise in a BO5 setting.
Raonic unlikely to do much with the foot surgery and will get crushed should he still make the QF somehow. Isner probably will be out by the third/fourth round he's record at RG hasn't been outstanding but I get the concerns...

Fognini in the R32, Wawrinka in the R16, Nadal in the QF would be the hardest path to the semi final for anyone. If you sub in Novak for Nadal there and you would have Nadal's nightmare draw.

1st round: Đoković vs. Karlović => Dr. Ivo wins
2nd round: Karlović vs. anyone => anyone wins

Well, Karlovic will be seeded so 1R versus another seed cannot happen.

For Djokovic, it is hard to think of a tough draw, but based on seedings assuming Raonic plays, it might be:

R1 Bellucci/Monaco
R2 Vesely
R3 Kyrgios
R4 Fognini
QF Wawrinka
SF Murray
F Nadal

Novak always had problems with guys that he practices. Always. That's why Dolgopolov is one of worst picks. Murray could be raw, but then again he could also peak in semi. Didn't know about Raonic having problem with his foot.

Fed. :rolleyes:
Rome final will be fresh even after RG. :cool:

Good lists. Maybe add in Tsonga there. Especially against Nadal I can see Stronga making a guest appearance.

GGL will be seeded, as will Kyrgios so R1 and R2 cannot happen. Kohli will be seeded top 24 so R3 cannot happen.

Well I took the names from the entry list on MTF and according to that, GGL and Kyrgios were out of top 32 ... ok then

Monaco and Ferrer are not dangerous opponents for Nole in any shape or form.

1R Karlovic 2R Dolgopolov 3R Kohlschreiber 4R Isner QF Nadal SF Wawrinka F Federer/Murray/Nishikori is probably the toughest ask Novak could get.
