Wimbledon: the draw

22.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger faces a truly tough challenge for the defense of his Wimbledon crown this year: he could meet Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals, Andy Murray in the semis and then Novak Djokovic in the final.

Roger will open his quest for an eight title on Monaday against Victor Hanesecu of Romania (ATP 47), against whom he has won all five encounters so far. Sergiy Stakhovsky (ATP 117) or Rogerio Dutra Silva (ATP 102) could follow in round two.
Fabio Fognini (ATP 30) and Nicolas Almagro (ATP 15) would then be possible opponents before an explosive quarter-final against Rafael Nadal - this year's no.5 seed.

Roger I'm actually really excited about this draw. Sure it is lop-sided but I think it will prove a point to some people who really need to be educated about how great you are. I look at this draw as an exciting challenge which I know you will relish. I never ever doubt you Rog so I'm not going to start now just because of a tougher draw. I know you can do it ! Show them that this is YOUR turf.

I'm not sure about draws since 2008, but definitely USO 2010 is 100% fixed in Nadal's favor to get his career GS... USO 2011 too...

DO not just defend your title, Rog,. Show them the great Roger Federer. I would love to see you playing great at Wimbledon, because that is what you are.

hi Roger,
You have tough opponents en route to the finals, but i know you can make it if you give your best. Be confident always in your matches. Believe you can beat them all, if you give your 100%. This is your tournament, do not hesitate to make points. Seize every opportunity. Play aggressively. I watched your previous Wimbledon games, and you were magnifient! Review those games, see how aggressive you were playing. I love to see you coming to court, like a lion ready to crush his opponent.

TONYN I did not question the fact that Roger has been given tough draws on the whole. However I don't believe they are fixed. It's just bad luck.

Doesn't matter how they load it up, you can win it, Fed ! Knock 'em down one by one......believe in that guy on your side of the net. He's really your only competition as well as the only solution. Take a long look in the mirror and see the champion there...remember, resolve, and walk out there knowing YOU have done all the work and deserve this championship game by game - match by match..YOU WILL be the victor......GO GET 'EM !
