I'm really really angry,annoyed and nerve-pulled about how hard is Andy's draw compared to guess who's.Let's pray he gets past Juanito who I also love but not to a such extend.He'd be more of a challenge than Nole imo.
But whoever is against Fed-Andy,Nole or Juan,I wish him the best.I'm not even anti-Federer,but his easy draws,esp recently really make me change my opinion on him.

It's not Federer's fault! I understand why people dislike his attitute but why dislike him because he's been lucky with the draws?

Considering the way Andy blasted Nole and Federer in straight sets recently, this should be a breeze in the park Whistle lol

Didn't think it was too bad. He avoids Berdych and Raonic, his current Bogie men. Folks also know that Fed can be thrashed, which should give others the confidence to have a go. The stuff I have been reading suggests that pulling out of Toronto was just precautionary. I wonder if the thoughts about pulling out of this one arise from the press conference, when he said he was going to see about it, with the emphasis on being fit for the US Open. Will be v sad if he pulls out. Don't also forget the other top players are going to be knackered as well, especially the ones still playing this week.

Apparently Tsonga's pulled and I've seen on another site that Andy has told reporters he too may pull.
Que sera everybody.

Which site?

Andy's draw doesn't seem to bad to me either. Fed had to play Isner and Delpo in Olympics and people were saying he had the easiest draw. Now they are in Andy's quarter and he's somehow got the toughest draw!

I agree first thing I did was look where Berdych and Raonic were. Though both of them have been knocked out easily in the Rogers Cup. Berdych seems to be out of sorts this summer, I hope it continues!! (sorry).
If Andy is fit I dont see any problems for him, not even Del Potro.

My most important thought: how is Andy's knee?

Do you have news? How much is it possible, in your opinion, he will pull out himself by Cinci?

Federer's draw:

Bye - Nieminen/Bogomolov - Kohlschreiber - Monaco - Ferrer - [Final]

This is just utterly ridiculous.

Murray's...

Bye - Querrey/Melzer - Roddick - Del Potro - Djokovic - [Final]

Come on.

Interesting how in Slams and Masters Djokovic is almost always in Federer's half and Murray in Nadal's. But when Nadal doesn't play, Murray is almost always in Djokovic's half. If Nadal pulls out of USO by any chance, then expect Andy to fall in Djokovic's half as well.

Personally I'd rather Andy pulls out of Cincy because first of all, he needs to stay healthy; second, I don't feel he's fully ready yet mentally. Olympics need to sink in totally and it hasn't happened yet since it's merely been a week. But at the same time, he does need a couple of matches to get things started for the USO, so it's essential in that sense as well.

Hi All,

Okay, I've stopped laughing about the knee jerk comment now. Whistle

I've studied the draw Andy has, and I have to say it could be worse, assuming he is fit to play. Wouldn't he have had to declare by now if he wasn't?

I've looked at the head to heads. Andy leads Querrey 4-1. The one was ages ago. Andy leads Melzer 5-0. I mean, seriously. Federer couldn't beat Andy at the Olympics, or Djokovic for that matter. Do we really think Melzer is going to do it all of a sudden?

Murray leads Roddick (I thought I'd confuse everyone by mentioning too many Andy's lol) 8-3. Murray won the last two, one on hard, the other the brilliant Queen's semi from last year. Roddick could pull a good day I suppose, it has been known, but I'd be surprised.

Andy leads Del Potro 5-1. This one could be interesting in that it might say more about where Del Potro is than Andy. Assuming Andy is fit I think he'll get through, but it could be an interesting one. I know Del Potro has played well lately, but I think he's a bit up and down. I fancy Andy for it if he is fit and up for it. I never like to think of a player tanking, but if Andy decides to let a match go, to focus on the USO, it could be this one to my mind. With a head to head like that I'm not sure a loss would be hugely important, except the commentators would go on about Del Potro for a bit. Do we care? Nope! The other match Andy could let go I suppose is the Roddick one.

The big question is Djokovic. The head to head is 8-6 in Djokovic's favour. However, Andy has won two of the last three. I know even without looking that those are the semi in Dubai this year on hard, and the Olympic semi, and they were both in straights. Again, surprisingly enough, this one could say more about Djokovic than Andy. Would he want to play Andy so soon after the Olympics?

Looking at the draw, I must admit I'd quite like Andy to play, but only if he is fit. I don't want him taking silly chances with the USO so close, that has to be the priority, but if he is fit this really isn't a bad draw on the face of it.

As much as I'd like Andy to win another title, I have to say that the trophy for Cincy is the most revolting in sport. It looks like something your granny would give you as a house-warming present! Isn't the runner up trophy in Cincy a ceramic chicken as well? That rings a bell from last year. Someone clearly has a sense of humour LOL.
