I'm not the one who would want to take on Federer ANYWHERE, even at his worst tournament, when he's had a month to rest, and now realizes that he has to fight to stay #1.

Is Nadal going to play New Haven?

Re: what are federer's chances of winning cincy?

Agassi might purposely go out, but I don't know that Rafa is to that point. Of course he may be beaten simply because he is tired or he doesn't have his mind on it after winning at Montreal. Anyway, Nadal should play at Cincy because the conditions there are more similar to the USO.

As for Federer's chances, I would say they are excellent. I can't see anyone beating him. It would be a huge upset for him to lose to anyone in this tournament.

Federer vs Ljubicic 3rd round should be good...both might not make it untill 3rd

You never know until you see how all the players are doing. He took time off so he would end up with the foot pain like he had in AO. We could also wonder if Nadal will be somewhat tired from just playing Montreal. We have see how Hewitt and Roddick are also.

Roger Forever !

Re: what are federer's chances of winning cincy?

if your going to purposely lose, why join at all right?

i don't think andre would do that. either he joins and goes for the win or just pulls out like he always does when he needs rest.

It doesn't seem like proving that was such a feat in that he didn't need to play Hewitt or Roddick at their best. This time around we might see those two making deep into the tourney.

Roger Forever !

Lleyton is the only man in the game, with a positive recent head-to-head over Nadal.
Let's hope he can take the little rodent out once again.

According to Eurosport:

Quote:
The world number one based himself in Dubai throughout the summer, working hard with his coach, Tony Roche, in the kind of heat that should make even the sometimes oppressive North American conditions a breeze.
I'm glad to see this was a working vacation. I looked up the Dubai weather for the past month and temps have averaged in the low 100's with lots of humidity. So the hot weather in Cincy shouldn't be a problem for Fed.

Yes it would be, so he better not pull a Pandy and go out R1.
