 Fingers crossed for Naomi and Jo. Have read somewhere that Laura is in the main draw. Is this true? Her ranking must surely be pretty low these days  Think

Agree with you about Nick Michelle, but Stan played almost unplayable tennis at RG and is a really streaky player, capable of similar again. That being said, clay is his preferred surface.
Of course Nick maybe out to prove something as well. Just read elsewhere that Rafa refused to play doubles with him at this NY charity do.

All this talk about Nick K being a difficult 1st round match needs to be put into perspective.
1. Nick is coming into this match carrying a lot of baggage.
2. He will be coming into this match cold against someone he has never  
   beaten or even taken a set off.
I think the last person he wanted to face in this tournament was Andy.
I'm sure Andy won't t be too worried and will be preparing his strategy to face each opponent as they come.
If I remember correctly when in 2012 people were worried about Andy facing Roanic, the bird man etc in his draw,both of whom he had lost to.We know how he dealt with them.
As to Stan he lost to him prior to his back surgery at a time when he didn't want to play but was advised by his team to play,last year he was coming back from his surgery building up his confidence and game. This year it will be a very different ball game!

This is a grand salem anything can happen playing the best of five sets. Andy, s draw is okay I am sure he will be fired up as he loves the salems. You never know neither Fed or Nole may not get to the semis and neither may Andy. I have just read that Nadal refused to play a charity math at mac, s tennis acacadeny because he was due to partner Krgios. I think that young man will have no support from his peers isolating himself from his  own sportsmen. I think Tennis australia should have a serious talk with him but would it be any good.

ATL  So pleased for her. There is a new group forming in GB women's tennis with a good attitude wanting to win.

Further I note that Andy is now only fractionally favoured over Fed to win, whereas before the draw it was 3-1 versus 7-1, I think

I don't think it's an awful draw at all. He was going to have Fed and Novak to beat anyway, the only question was the order. So basically it's now horrendous because he's drawn Stan in the QF? I know that Andy has lost to him before, but he has the ability to frustrate Stan in a way that Novak can't. As long as he isn't passive and keeps a good depth, he will beat him.

In any case, why are people getting so worked up about hypothetical matches that may never even happen?
I don't think anyone is getting worked up. It is just a comment on the draw.

Yes he can beat Stan, but he can also be easily lose as he has every time they have met in the USO. Not being passive will guarantee nothing against someone who has won two slams so recently. And a win could well be a high taxing one. Andy has never really been able to slug back to back long wins against the very top guys in slams.
If you don't think it is an awful draw - what would have been?

Brydan Klein through to the 3QR of the USO. He'll play Ebden next, which is a bit of a tough draw, but Klein's played good matches so far.
