Bad for tennis that Nadal and Monfils are out.

Hope all the four Olympic semifinalists go to this tournament though.

Nah, there will be enough good players in the draw to prevent vultures from winning anything. And Ferrer has withdrawn anyway.

Re: Will Toronto be a washout? Nadal, Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraw

The ATP had to have realized that with so many of the top players participating at the Olympics in both singles & doubles that something like this was bound to happen. Expecting players to travel & make a sudden transition to another surface that quickly was unrealistic to say the least. Did the ATP give any thoughts to perhaps scheduling Toronto & Cincy a week later this year? Although this would have not been the perfect solution & participation at Cincy may have suffered somewhat as a result, it would surely be better than the mass exodus we are witnessing now. This is particularly unfair to a player like Djokovic who is defending 1000 pts in the Rogers Cup and will now probably have to W/D or tank to avoid physical injury/exhaustion.

Same here.
The Warlocq was the only reason I didn't lose my mind.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Our dear, faithful Warlocq.

The meaning of life. 42 translates as Warlocq if you didn't know already.

scheduling Cinci the week before the US Open would have led to a more massive exodus, I think.

The ATP had no other choice if one thinks carefully, considering that they have no weight in the decision in the dates of the Olympic Games.

the notion of "defending" points only has a signification in a case of a player who has a massive advantage on one surface like Nadal on clay.

Beside that, I don't use this notion like that : the points from last year are lost 52 weeks later anyway then everything starts from zero and you do your best in every tournament. That's the way I see it.

Djokovic and Fed will be top-2 seeds in the US Open anyway

Besides, I don't think Djokovic will withdraw : he lost his double in first round in 2 sets and didn't have very tough matches, the Olympics are not tiring at all for him so far

I can see Federer (old) and even Murray (used to not being interested in other tournaments than slams and Olympics recently and still in mixed doubles) withdrawing much more than Djokovic withdrawing.
