Nadal won't make it that far, and Roger may not either depending on the result tomorrow.

did anyone notice that Gulbis, and Stakhovsky were in the same half:eek:

it won't matter though as they won't meet in the semis just like Fed, and rafa won't:wavey:

Ridiculous.These two should NEVER be on the same half regardless of their rankings. The draws should be permanetly fixed to avoid such a farce. I think it's pretty safe to say Rogi won't be winning Cincy.

i think everyone noticed it, unless theyre blind. nadal has berdych which will be a tough test. roger on the other hand should make semis. i wouldnt be surprised if yet again we dont see fedal, but i hope we do. the two have had far too few meetings on hardcourt.

I really hope you're wrong because Rafa's Cincy results seem to be a very good indicator of how he'll go at the US Open:


Year Cincy Result US Open Result
2006 Quarters Quarters
2007 R32 R16
2008 Semis Semis
2009 Semis Semis

World #1 against world #3 - Yeah we noticed.
It also means world #2 against world #4.

It's remarkable that Federer has dropped to #3 - it's no surprise that he should be drawn against Nadal sooner or later.

And as others have said, they both have to reach the semis, not automatic any more.

well technically roger will be world #2 in cincy he is just seeded #3.

it could be their first regular semi match since 2005 FO (they played two semis at the master cup)

I think this is a great opportunity for Rafa to reach his first Cincy final. Federer should be a more winnable match for him that Murray...

One of them won't make the SF, given the draw and recent matches in Toronto, I'm going with Nadal not to make it.

Does anyone care about it ?

Doesn't the lack of thread before you tend to point towards no one caring?

Two years ago I would have said Federer straight sets Rafa at Cincy with his eyes closed. Now, its more erratic to say the least.

Otoh it really is a terrible surface for Rafa, and I somehow suspect that we won't see this matchup.
