Re: Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto

I wonder if Tsonga will w/d soon. He will play double on sun in London. And he signed up for Salem the week before USO. I can't see him playing non-stop from this week all the way to USO.

Re: Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto

wow, this event is becoming a mess already and will probably become even more of one. You really cant help but feel bad for the organisers when its looking likely that not even half of the top 30 will be there

Imagine on Sunday you play Olympic bronze medal match on grass, on Monday travel to Canada already being dead tired, then on Tuesday you have to practice to adjust to the surface while still suffering jetlag and the day after you have to be match fit again.
Only 5 hours. No excuses.

He has to? If Federer wins does he have to fly to Switzerland to present the medal to the fans too? If Murray wins will he have to present his medal to Great Britain from Buckingham Palace balcony?

Oh wait, guess not, that would be too grandiose for Fed or Muzza, not their style. Fits for Dfaker though.

In the race for No. 1, if Djoker skips Canada, that's a big point loss as he won it last year, while Fed only got to the third round.

Re: Ferrer, Verdasco & Monfils withdraws from Toronto

Poor Canada. The ATP should have adjusted its schedule and bumped everything back a week. New York is still warm enough the first two weeks of September. Anyway, Gilles already said he would be there so that's one player in the top 15 . Hopefully he doesn't blow this opportunity and lose 1r or something.

I dunno about Federer or Murray but regarding Djokovic,Tipsarevic says that they signed a contract to go to Serbia to present the medals before they should fly to Toronto.

Re: Will Toronto be a washout?

Is Kohlschreiber playing this tournament, or is he still out with an injury?

Re: Confirmed. Nadal withdraws from Toronto.

Rest well, champ.
Hope to see the big 4 back in Cincy. But i'm not confident about that.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!

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.
