Fed did OK: Ramos, then possibly Llodra, Benneteau, Simon, Isner, Djokovic and then final.

Okay?
Apart from Simon and then the obvious its a cakewalk.

This is a tough draw? Won't drop set before the semis.

He's unlikely to beat Nadal, if he's going to do it it'll be in the semis and Nadal's got enough half decent grass court players that it's not an absolute certainty he'll be there.

Grass is made for Raonic. As its "apparently" the fastest of the surfaces his serve is a massive weapon.   

Yes but I doubt SW19 will suit him as much as the hard courts will later in the year (and I'm not sure if the grass will play all that fast this year). Besides, as much as I like new players coming through (and think Raonic is a talented player) I can't help think that with Raonic he's being a little over hyped by everyone. You can't hype someone into the latter stages of a grand slam tournament (or indeed into the top ten and top five), you have to earn your place and work for it. There really is a world of difference between his ranking (22) and the top of the tennis world.

Am I the only one who thinks that this draw isn't too bad (well at least until the potential quarters)?

R1: Davydenko - way, way, way past his best and hasn't had a great year.

R2: Karlovic - ain't nothin' but a serve and again hasn't had a brilliant year.

R3: Anderson - dangerous floater but won't cause any difficulty to a top player. Could potentially take a set off Murray but that's about it. If Murray ends up playing Marcos Bagdhatis at this stage then it'll be a straight sets win for Murray. Bagdhatis is a bum.

R4: Cilic or Raonic (or Gasquet no?) - difficult against any of those but doable. Raonic is very much the up and comer of the mens tour but I would hazard a guess that the grass won't suit his style of play (he looks better on the faster surfaces). Cilic has the potential to be a great player no doubt about it but so far he hasn't exactly realised his potential and how much will the debacle of Queens weigh on his mind? As for Richard Gasquet sorry but hahahahahahaha the poor guy is shot in the head when it come to the mental side of the game. People complain that Murray doesn't have it together upstairs but Gasquet is a Psychologists dream!

QF: Ferrer, Del Potro - I would say if he come up against Ferrer Murray has big, big problems. It'll be a long, hard and difficult match. However, on the grass I think it'll certainly be a lot closer than the match in Paris and I expect Murray to come through in about 5 sets. He'll beat Delpo on the grass. So far Delpo isn't anywhere near the player he was (and was he even that good anyway? Hard to tell) and despite protestations that he's a contender at the slams so far I've not witnessed anything that backs up the journalistic hyperbole.

SF: Nadal - eek lol. After the implosion last year against Nadal Murray will have a lot to think about if he makes it this far. Still he's beaten Nadal in a semifinal before at the US and Nadal lost against Kohlschreiber on the grass recently so maybe hasn't had the build up he might have wanted (although that probably has more to do with coming down after his 20 millionth French win). Winnable but again it'll be a difficult match. I would rather watch a Murray / Nadal semi final than a Nadal / Ferrer or Nadal / Delpo semi final because at least then it'll be a decent match and (hopefully) not a walkover.

F: Djokovic - A Murray / Djokovic final would be amazing and winnable for either. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

You know, I quite agree with you Little Laroo.  The biggest obstacle for Andy is the beginning and playing his way in, but if he works up a head of steam then I think he'd make the semis against Nadal.  Previously against Ferrer at the FO he was thwarted by the rain break just after he had gained control, of course Daveeed came straight back out of the blocks and got his win, far less likely he'll manage that on grass.  Raonic does look dangerous (-ly boring that is)  but now Andy's had a sighter I would expect that to be a keenly contested battle. And then, if only Nadal.  There is some evidence to me anyway that Andy's forehand hand has grown, going through the court with an extra visciousness, you just need it to do that occasionally and it throw the opponent off, so that's good.  The biggest shot of all that all matches rest on, particularly as they become tougher, is of course, his serve.   If I was Andy I'd spend the rest of the week working on my serve, 1st one in gives such a boost.  One that we could all do with! yay

I would see Andy past Anderson, or whoever, without much trouble then we can look at what the draw look like.
Wimbledon gets its share of upset the first week. If you think it a bad draw for Andy, the guys below his ranking must be more worried..

Bad draw but didnt expect anything else it's never easy for Andy, but I think he will be ok , lots of Murray roller coaster but I think he's up for it, I hope so anyway , slams are always difficult to predict particularly the first week. Come on Andy yay

Andy's bad draws have almost always turned out to be good draws in the past. As in, they always tend to open up for him, so I won't complain about it. It usually is a good omen, so let's see.
