Rafito or Rogie.

I don't doubt it, I can't see anyone else winning. I'd say it's 80/20 in Rogie's favor (20 for Rafa). For anyone other than these two to win it, they'd both have to be injured. A year ago at this time, Davy was playing out of his mind. In 2011: Tsonga coming back from injury, Davy out of form or aged out, Gulbis/Troicki/Garcia-Lopez/Kohlschreiber all either challenged or even beate Rogie/Rafa in 2010, but they're IMHO not good enough to win the title!

If Fedal are as smart as there idiotic fan boys claim this won't be a formality so personally I hope neither drops a set getting to the final.

Not Rafa or Roger, rarely do they go deep in warmups, warmups are pretty useless to win. They are great for match practice but winning only makes you more tired for the slams. I expect Tsonga or Davydenko or someone else.

I can't really get behind the whole "Rogie" thing. I'm a live and let live guy but I just can't really get behind anyone calling him by that name if they're not thinking about kissing him on the lips.

"Roger" will do fine.

Has an official entrant list been posted yet? I can't find it on the tournament site.

There's nothing gay about calling him Rogie. I've seen a lot of others call him Rogie as well, it's just another name he's known under.

How is that different to losing in a final like last year? It is the same number of matches.

I can't say "it's gay" because the moderators would flip. But, trust me - you don't want to be calling him "Rogie".

You should be thanking me for helping you out of this mess that you've gotten yourself into.

It has nothing to do with sexual orientation, though. It's just an immature attention whore doing what an immature attention whore does. Like, yeah, use common sense.

Sometimes it's okay - like Andrew can be called Andy and it's no big deal. Sometimes not so much - like don't call Bruce "Brucie" and don't call Roger "Rogie".

Rafito or Rogie.
Goes without saying.
fedal final coming up, i guess
unless clownga or kolya step it up.
Most likely, unless Nadull loses early to GGL again.
Clownga will not do anything, nor will Davydenko.
Gulbis.
No, he won't do anything.
Nadal

44th ATP title for Rafa

Rafa Nadal.
Roger will defeat him.

I suspect Fed will win.
Though it's a small tournament he has been taking all tournaments seriously since Toronto. It'll be interesting to see if that holds to be true still.
If Fed wants to have any chance at #1 he'll have to produce at all tournaments, he knows that it seems.

Pls. comment the draw.

Nadal has Hanescu, Gulbis, Davydenko, Karlovic, Nieminen, Seppi and Kohli on his half.

Roger has Troicki, Tsonga, GGL ans some Sergei Bubka WC :)

Very unbalanced draw, tbh.
Anyway Rafa can meet smth. like : Beck, Lacko, Gulbis, Davydenko before the final.

Roger can have smth like: QF, QF/WC, Troicki, Tsonga. Not such a different draw, in the end, especially knowing Troicki's good mental state after the Davis Cup final...

Roger has a small chance to meet a quite worn-out Rafa in the final. That's only if the likes of Gulbis, Davydenko/Karlovic/Kohli will keep their end of the bargain :devil:

Possible upsets: Tricki over Roger and/or Gulbis over Rafa.

First joke of a draw of the year for Fedull, nothing changed in the new year. I don't mind if Rafa loses before the final. In 2009, he lost to Monfils prior to winning the AO. Last year, he lost to Baghdatis prior to winning the USO.

How can u call a joke of a draw this?First of all it`s a 250 event and certainly only a couple of top players play in it.On the contrary i think it`s one of the tougher 250 events with Federer,Nadal,Davydenko and Tsonga in it.

the funny thing is that in 2008 the organizers gave juicy contracts to both fed and nadal to play the tournament for 3 straight years. then they made of types of silly stunts like having fed and nadal play on a magic carpet as a promo event for the tournament plus a lot of PR stuff with the media and sponsors feautiring the top players. Still, in the past 2 years they haven't gotten their desired Fedal final. This year will be their last shot.
