A little early, I know, but the draw is out.

Re: ****TMS Cinncinatti Aug. 14-Aug. 20****:

Not really worried about Pdorn, he doesn't really have the mental toughness to beat Roger. Murray shouldn't be a problem either as long as Roger's playing well. Tursunov in third round, that might be once again a difficult match if Dima plays like he did last night. QF shouldn't be all that difficult. Don't think anyone can really trouble him either in the SF other than an in-form fat dav or Safin. Pretty good draw for Roger this week.

Nadal has another potential tough draw. Let's see how he does this time. Fed has proven himself over and over again with these types of draws.

Nadal's draw is better than the one he had this week for Toronto. Instead of meeting Berdych in the third round, he has Berdych and Blake battling to fight him in the quarters. He shouldn't have much problems getting to the quarters at all, unlike this week.

Querrey is a tough first round for him though. It is all about match-up's and although P'dorn may be better in terms of ranking Querrey is the sort of player he hates on play on fast surfaces. Like Kendrick but better.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

like this draw for Nadal

Certainly not easy for Nadal. Sam might give Nadal problems in the 1st set as Nadal adjusts to the big serve. Sam doesn't have enough from the back of the court to trouble Nadal though. Haas or Verdasco could give him problems in the rd. 16 if they are playing well.

It is definitely a well-balanced draw. Look for Fat Dave to be playing well next week.

Big Sam might bother Nadal in the beginning, but he s/v like Kendrick. Nadal will eventually break him down. Nonetheless, it should be fun to watch. At least he isn't playing a retriever who has to struggle just to hold serve in every serve game.
