Only 16 hrs or so away from the draw so it's probably no point of speculating, but it seems both Rafa and Fed are uncertain of participation based on this story http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...591/story.html
. Based on Gilles ranking, he should be the 9th seed and just missed the bye, which I think probably is better that way since he probably needs more matches to get under his belt. But if there's any withdrawal at the top, he'll get in the top 8 seeds and the bye. But anyway, we'll see in a few hours. Hopefully he gets a good draw, but frankly, I don't know what kind of draw is good for him anymore.
Oh, Gael is also in Montreal, so he'll play, maybe?
I like all the Frenchies and especially the 4 top ones, so it's a bit sad that all 4 of them seem to be in such dire at the moment (maybe not Jo, but still, he didn't do particularly good either). Just really hope that Gilles can regain his footing at the American hardcourts.
