What do Blake, Birdman and Misha have to do with Roger's HC season?

Oh sorry.
Was it not obvious?
What do you think they have in common?

Okay okay.
If it doesn't make sense, or nobody's laughing, then I'll change the title.
What should it be?

Oh I see. Isn't that a negative way of looking at Roger's HC season? I am sure that if Roger were to meet Nadal during the summer HC season, he will beat him. He doesn't need help.

How about, "I believe in fast courts and low bounces" ?

Of course, it's meant to be a joke!
Too bad we can't put smilies in the title.

If I get couple more negative responses, I'll change the title to yours.

Yeah, I hope and believe that Roger will defend his titles in US.
Also very interested in what Nadal comes up with this time.

Here's hoping for a repeat of 06, or at least another dry spell for Nadal.

Nadal is not going to have another dry spell. I really hope Feds takes a wildcard at Indy because he can't afford to be off for 4 weeks anymore. He needs to keep the momentum of his new found serve and work on his average looking FH of late.

If he wins his 4th USO, I'd put it this achievement up there with 5 W. But like NYC said, he has to find his fh first.

Agree. If he does win the USO this year, it will mean:

--For the third time he would win three slams in a year. It would mean he would have 3 of the 6 seasons where it happened. Laver's was in a time where he only had to play a few players and played 3 out of the 4 on grass, and Connors did it in a time with fewer good players and the AO a weaker field. By modern standards, Wilander's is the only one that is comparable with higher standards of competiton and the Slams being played essentially on 4 different surfaces.

--4 straight USO's would be a record.

--He would be only the 2nd player to win 2 different slams 4 times in a row. Borg won Wimby 5 times in a row and RG 4 times in a row. Federer would win 5 Wimby's and 4 USO's.

--He would get to his 10th straight final

--He would get to 2nd place by himself on the Open Era all-time list for # of Slams won.

--He would do the Wimby/USO back-to-back for the 4th straight time, far and away the record.

Already talking about the next hurdle? let's celebrate Wimby's achievement at least for one more day

Considering he hasn't played much this year, this may not be such a bad idea.
Are the courts in Montreal faster than Toronto?
Rogers Cup was playing painfully slow last year.

I think he needs to add a tournament or two. Nadal is aiming for number one - he's actually going to play on clay now?? The hard court season is coming up!
