Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

Just signed in. Sorry if this has been posted before but could not find it in search. Just got below email from ATP.
If there is a thread on this, please delete this one..


DRAW CHALLENGE ALERT: Western & Southern Financial Group Masters Field Change

A change have been made to the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters draw following the withdrawal of No. 6 seed Juan Martin del Potro.

- On line 32 (replacing del Potro) an unnamed lucky loser will be drawn as his replacement.

Please note that if you see del Potro's name in your Cincinnati Draw Challenge bracket, his place will be taken by a lucky loser.

You may modify your picks anytime between now and before singles play begins Monday at 11:00 a.m. ET/3:00 p.m. GMT.

Modify your picks now and check out Greg Sharko’s exclusive Cincinnati Draw Challenge preview.

Good luck and may the best Challenger win!

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

Man, he has played 9 matches in 2 weeks, 6 of them in 3 sets; I think it's enough for him and he thouroghly deserves a break.

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

Good move.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

DelPo making good scheduling choices.

Benneteau now gets a bye in the first round and plays the winner of Lopez/Melzer. Talk about lucky loser.

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

A wise decision indeed. He really is maturing. He learnt from last year that playing too much tennis is bad for you.

Wise decision. Hopefully he'll be fully fresh for the USO.

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

I love how Delpo's learning process is so obviously there.
Good decision.
Next year forget Washington and get your Washington point by playing Cincy.

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

I wish he just played a couple of matches and tank it just to keep the momentum going but knowing he's a very hungry player that he is going to give it all and give up us open chances. All in all a good decision

the Fed vs anderson IW 2014

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

I agree, but also ATP should do some changes in the schedule as there are more mandatory or semi mandatory events due to the obligation to play 4 500 and 1 after us open.

Why 1 500, and 2 master series in a row... is there any other place to move any of these tournaments? for example to the week of 9/21 or 9/28?...

Re: Del Potro Withdraws From Cincy

If Murray and Roddick don't tank Cinci, they will be in huge trouble when it's time for the USO.
