Just look at the individual matches. Fed's on grass so should be favored against anyone.
But to have 3 good games in a row at the end of the draw will be tough.
 
One of the top seeds may fall or have a physical problem including Federer.

Nadal ain't getting his revenge this year. No way Rosol is getting past Fed. Nadal's got a wicked difficult draw. But if he makes his way through Roger, Muray, and Djoker to win, everyone will have to finally shut up about his current form being iffy and him having only been winning due to luck and all that junk.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

Bottom half - draw from hell. Top half - easy for Djokovic, too easy. the only guy who might test him is Berdych. Nole has an open path to the final. I feel bad for Fed, Rafa and Murray fans.

Yeah, Nole was handed a draw similar to Roger's FO draw. All three of the other Big 4 members on the other side.

Lug, I know Haas is there too, but I don't think he can beat Nole in best of 5. really, doubt it. it's a different game all together. Djokovic will probably wear him down. we'll see.

Probably, but if I were you I wouldn't be that concerned about Berdych. If Haas were to play him, I wouldn't.

I'm not 'too concerned' about Berdman, but he did def. Nole at W. However that was back in 2010 when Djokovic was struggling with too many things. I simply can't deny the fact that Djokovic has a pretty easy, open path to the final ) on paper, but you never know. btw, last slam Djokovic didn't make semis was at RG 2010 when he lost to Meltzer after being 2 sets up in QF :insane:. so 12 consecutive majors where he's reached semis, final or won, not shabby at all  :)

Unluckiest players of the draw

Florian Mayer- Last year's quarterfinalist and highest unseeded player plays Djokovic in Round 1 (last year they met in QF). He could trouble Nole with his variety, but he needs better mental strength and physical strength to actually beat him.

David Goffin- Met Nole in R1 of RG, now Tsonga in R1 here. He could make it tight, but he is a known choker.

Benjamin Becker- in form grass specialist meets Murray round 1.

Philipp Kohlschreiber- He has to be very strong to defeat big-serving mental giant Dodig in Round 1.

Gilles Simon/Feliciano Lopez- High-seeded Simon and in-form grass courter play Round 1.

Drarwmakers don't like Germans  :)~

Simon/Lopez should be a very interesting first round match up. I don't usually like watching Simon, he kinda bores me, but with Lopez as his opponent on grass, he'll have to force himself to be more aggressive.

The longer it goes, the more chance for Simon.

What's your thoughts on Nadal-Darcis? Darcis is a grasscourter with a great slice. Is there a chance for upset?

Darcis can certainly shock people on the grass, like he did to Berdych at the Olympics. I don't see much of a chance of him beating Nadal, though. Sure, Nadal's rusty on the surface. He hasn't played in almost a year. But he's been at the top of his game recently, and I don't see him taking long to get back in the swing of things on grass. Darcis gave Wawrinka some trouble, but if he can't even take a set off of him, I don't see him coming anywhere near beating Nadal.
