Fed has a pretty cake draw too. He has an inexperienced youngster followed by Kohl who's gonna hand him the match nicely (after needing a tough 5 setter to beat Raonic) followed by probably Gasquet who's gonna crumble mentally (on cue). How is that hard?? Wawa is ranked higher than Kohl, there is not much difference in level between the 2. Berd is considerably more dangerous than Gasquet (gasp, or even Tsonga who is ranked below Berd and seems less sharp than Berd by far judging from the early rounds). The only difficulty Fed has is Murray but Murray is gonna be massively worn out by the obligatory marathon clash with Delpo (and that's if he survives it at all). Ferrer may be ranked 1 spot lower than Murray but he actually had a higher winning % in 2012 than Murray and he wears you down on every point no matter what. I say: Fed has nothing to complain about. Ferrer has it much tougher with in form Nishi and Almagro to go through before even getting to Djoko.
