Queen's was irrelevant to Wimbledon for Andy. I'm sure Cincy will turn out irrelevant to the USO.
I never considered Andy would win the Gold medal, but it is now something he can use against the Fed (mentally) when they play. That he has something the Fed does not, and as the chance only come round every four years Fed is unlikely to get another shot at it. But when Andy get's his first GS, I think the flood gates can open. Three out of the four slams Andy could dominate, but even the FO is not safe as his confidence will soor! Rafa may well loose his strangle hold on the clay, will he get back to his former level.
