What I meant was that he will not be getting past the 4R, which means that he won't gain any points
Got ya - what I meant was he'll be lucky not to LOOSE points.
EDIT: Wow my comment above sounds really snide and negative - guess what I meant to say is since I haven't seen any "magic" from Richard since basically Rome, I am a bit skeptical he'll be able to step it up on the Grand Slam stage. And once again hope I have to eat my words...
BTW: If Stakhovsky wins today in Winston-Salem, he might not be able to get to NYC
Many airlines are cancelling flights around NYC/Washington,DC/Boston, beginning sometime Friday or Friday night etc. and could last several days as precaution for approaching hurricane. I shouldn't be joking about this, having gone through MANY hurricanes, the preparation/precautions are a real pain, necessary but a pain. HOpe Hurricane Irene does the unpredictable (as they often do) and turns off into the Atlantic missing the major population areas.
