Cincinnati 2008: Nadal to become #1, but let's try to get #1 this week!

I have been told that Cincinnati's Draw is out (Thanks Metis ;-)

So I am starting the Cincinnati thread. Nadal section of the draw is down below ... Djokovic is again in Nadal side, but ... who cares?

I am confident Nadal will collect enough points in Cincinnati to be crowned #1 on August 18th (if not earlier but that depends on RF). It is all a bit complicated with the scheduled compresed and regulations that state that only 18 tournaments count towards ranking ... But to cut a long history short. 18th of August is the expected date in which Nadal will be crowned new king of tennis.

And rightly so.

Re: Next stop to being crowned #1: Cincinnati

Xoman thanks for the thread But could you atleast change the title to "Hoping to be crowned # 1"

Re: Hoping to be crowned #1: Cincinnati

The draw is pretty much identical in
every aspect of Toronto except now he gets
Misha AND Blake, but who's to say they will even
get there... anyway, this is definitely a
great time for tennis, the new #1, I like the sound of that

Re: Hoping to be crowned #1: Cincinnati

What is the MTF - SOP, if any, regarding fan blogs.

I arrived in Cincy last evening and will the here for the week of the tournament. I'll try to posts some photos and occasional thoughts regarding the activities I see. Most of my interest is Rafa but there are some other players I follow.

Should I start another thread, just post pics in "Hot Pics" and keep my comments to myself, or what is acceptable. (It seems some are familiar with the tournament blogs and pics I posted to rafaelnadal.com)

VAMOS RAFA ***VAMOS RAFA*** VAMOS RAFA

Let's not forget to make our predictions for Cincy.

GuiroNl and Xoman are the frontrunners after Toronto but many others are hot on their heels with a chance to win the coveted trophy...

Re: Cincinnati 2008: Hoping to be crowned #1

I'm going with a R16 loss to possibly Youzhny. He can't keep this streak up forever, and performing well at Cinci after going far in Canada has never been easy for any player. The courts are similar to the US Open ones aswel, very quick. Anyway, I don't care about Cinci, he has nothing to defend and he badly needs to get rest to avoid burn out. I almost wish he'd skip it to keep the streak alive.

15.

Re: Cincinnati 2008: Hoping to be crowned #1

Metis, put me down for the QF.

Still I hope Rafa will do well here.

Vamos

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better
