Anybody else notice that by the time a top seed gets to a quarter, he often steamrolls his opponent? It's as if the perennial mid-ranker, by the time he gets to the quarters, doesn't even bother to give the top seed a real contest. Federer often has longer matches in the second or third round than he does in the quarters. I'm not going to do my own research on this, but you can be pretty sure that by the time somebody outside the top 10 makes it to the quarters, he's already ready to pack it in. Hey, I've gotten this far, no point in putting up a long fight just to lose in the fourth or fifth set. I'll hit some shots, collect my check, and not have to reschedule my flight.
