Re: Toronto Draw

I thought Delpo had pulled out. I guess not.

Raonic to play Murray in the third round. Ouch.

Nor of Vince Spadea nor Jonathan Stark...--all ranked in the world’s top one hundred at one point in 1995. Nor of Jeff Tarango, sixty-eight in the world, unless you remember his unfortunate psychotic breakdown in full public view during last year’s Wimbledon.

You are invited to try to imagine what it would be like to be among the hundred best in the world at something. At anything. I have tried to imagine; it’s hard."

Re: Toronto Draw

Nole vs Delpo in QF? Not a good draw for either man but should be a cracker if both make it that far.

Berdych has a great draw, he better pounce on it to get out of his slump.

Re: Toronto Draw

Andy gets Raonic AND Isner - someone must have heard our Olympic finalist has been serving well.

oh wait, Novak gets DelPo...if he gets that far.

well, I wouldn't mind a Nishikori/Raonic final - about time the kids step up.

Re: Toronto Draw

Young - Chardy and Tomic - Q, solid chance to win match at least for youngsters.
With this draw Tsonga has a good shot if he`ll play. Would be nice.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: Toronto Draw

Novak and Murray are playing!

Appearance fees?

Re: Toronto Draw

I can understand Novak wanting to play - defending 1000pts but why the hell hasn't Andy withdrawn yet?

Re: Toronto Draw

Querrey does get the SE spot. Now tank against Dolpo and save some energy.

As for Young, just win a match, then go from there

First round cameo.

Re: Toronto Draw

Gruntollers has a good chance to make the quarters with a few predictible withdrawls.

Re: Toronto Draw

looks like the isner/raonic match that everyone has been dying to see is almost inevitable here. Toricki is not beating raonic and kohlischreiber's fitness is questionable , even if he was 100% getting by isner would be a big challenge

Re: Toronto Draw

The draw is terribly unbalanced, I feel.

QF:

Berdych vs Monaco

Tsonga vs Tipsy

Murray vs Isner


and then Nole vs Delpo. These two really got the short end of the stick: a bit absurd that the same round might feature a match like Berdych vs Monaco and then Nole vs Delpo

why are you surprised Nole gets a hard draw? That's a given.

Re: Toronto Draw

Re: Toronto Draw

murray made a retarded move by not pulling out before the draw . he just fucked other players. he reached mixed doubles finals also so no way he is going in canada . this isn't the first time murray toying with things like this, should be fined for it

Re: Toronto Draw

Great chance for Tipsy to repeat his success.

Djoker = GOAT
DelPo = Purger of the Vultures
Hewitt = Llegend
Iron STan = Saviour of tennis

Nadull - moonballer with zero talent
Ferrer - Talentless Vulture
Tomic - overrated mug who will never win anything big
