Interestingly, even if he's ranked #17 in the world right now, and is in a draw that is full of today's heavyweights, legendary player Roger Federer was still able to come up as the favorite in his side of the draw after using the head-to-heads. We have modified also the rules a bit by including only the data from up to three years ago.
On paper, the fourth round of this side of the draw should be between Murray and Isner and Roger and Kei Nishikori. Murray and Roger are the ones touted to be in the QFs.
Well, Roger struggled a bit against Jurgen Melzer of Austria in his first round match today but still came out on top. Let's see how his play progresses as the rounds move on.
A tough 3rd round opponent looms in Tomas Berdych, who is currently ranked #10. If he gets past through him, he should meet Kei Nishikori in the 4th then Murray in the QFs, and possibly Tsonga in the SFs. A lot of talented players to vanquish just to reach the finals!
