It`s wonderfull oportunity for some old dogs. Still remember how happy I was for Ljubicic when he won IW-10. Maybe Fish or Stepanek? Nalba? :hearts: It`d be awesome.
I guess draw should be today, but maybe organisers simply wait? It can be far more withdrawals, no need to be hurry and make it as usual and then change with LL.

Raonic to play Murray in the third round. Ouch.

Nole vs Delpo in QF? Not a good draw for either man but should be a cracker if both make it that far.

Berdych has a great draw, he better pounce on it to get out of his slump.

DemiCrayanhan
08-04-2012, 06:08 PM
Andy gets Raonic AND Isner - someone must have heard our Olympic finalist has been serving well.

oh wait, Novak gets DelPo...if he gets that far.

well, I wouldn't mind a Nishikori/Raonic final - about time the kids step up.

Sanya
08-04-2012, 06:09 PM
Young - Chardy and Tomic - Q, solid chance to win match at least for youngsters. :yeah:
With this draw Tsonga has a good shot if he`ll play. Would be nice.

As for Young, just win a match, then go from there

looks like the isner/raonic match that everyone has been dying to see is almost inevitable here. Toricki is not beating raonic and kohlischreiber's fitness is questionable , even if he was 100% getting by isner would be a big challenge

Mark Lenders
08-04-2012, 07:13 PM
The draw is terribly unbalanced, I feel.

QF:

Berdych vs Monaco

Tsonga vs Tipsy

Murray vs Isner


and then Nole vs Delpo. These two really got the short end of the stick: a bit absurd that the same round might feature a match like Berdych vs Monaco and then Nole vs Delpo :o

why are you surprised Nole gets a hard draw? That's a given.

murray made a retarded move by not pulling out before the draw . he just fucked other players. he reached mixed doubles finals also so no way he is going in canada . this isn't the first time murray toying with things like this, should be fined for it

So Nole won't be withdrawing from this one?

doublebackhand
08-04-2012, 08:46 PM
I don't see Murray getting past Raonic if he doesn't withdraw. Querry has a good shot taking down Djokovic too.

Basically all those top players who are still playing at the OG this weekend are not gonna make it deep in Toronto, having to adjust to time and surface differences.

henke007
08-04-2012, 08:56 PM
Berdych better stop the vultures Fish/Monaco from reaching Semi's. Isner and Raonic with a great shot here.

A non top 4 player might actually win a masters. They will never have a better chance.

Assuming the draw remains like this, the winner of Novak vs Delpo in the QF will take the title, it will a de facto final, especially if Murray withdraws.

Berdych vs Monaco

Tsonga vs Tipsy

Murray vs Isner

Nole Vs DELPO

I don't think Nole gets a hard Drive.

DEL PO may only play one good match because the guy is Roger Federer who made him play his best match since 2009

It's still easy for Nole

You are forgetting that Donald Young is in the draw...

Mercury
08-04-2012, 10:41 PM
Murray really should have withdrawn before the draw. He's got mixed doubles and the singles F still to come... Really very stupid of him, he should never even land in Canada.

If Nole comes into this one with the will to win he can take this one so easily. Only Delpo in his way really, but coming to think about it Delpo deserves something with his recent form. Ok then maybe not a cake walk for Nole, but probably the easiest masters draw he'll ever have.

Gutted for Delpo, he should have had an easy draw at least to SF here.

I hope you're joking man. Nole and Delpo are undoubtedly two of the three best players in the draw (the best two beyond any doubt if Murray withdraws), the draw was very harsh on both of them by pitting them to face each other in QF.

Do you really think Monaco, Isner and Tipsy are of the same class as Delpo? I surely hope you don't. Draw couldn't be tougher for Nole here.

philosophicalarf
08-05-2012, 12:38 AM
Depends how Murray is feeling, but he might fancy this draw. Bye and quali opening two rounds, nice. Then two serve bots, Raonic and Isner ...... and not exactly the quickest court around. Not much running around needed there, just serve well and hit a few big returns. Semi, Berdych? OK, tricky, but not Nadal or Federer.

tommyg6
08-05-2012, 01:42 AM
I think that someone other than Delpo, Murray or Nole will win this event because those 3 guys are still in London and have to play tomorrow. They're gonna be dead tired and adjust to time zones, court surfaces, etc. So it's now the best time for guys like Raonic, Berdych, Isner, other darkhorses to pounce on this chance and win this event.

I would love to see Raonic go deep in this event. Go Raonic!

This is Tomic's best chance to get a top 4 win. Has just has to beat a qualifier then he faces a tired Djokovic.

He'll also need to slip sleeping pills into Djoker's scotch if he plans on winning more than 3 games.

I agree, I hope they are not that retarded to make him come to Belgrade. But then again they knew that he was going to Toronto right after the OGs even before the OGs started. Why did they even make that stupid contract? I don't rly know did all Serbian athletes sign that contract or just tennis players. I think and hope that they all did so they can let Novak go to Toronto and come home to present the medal and the USO trophie right after the USO :p

He'd go back to Serbia to celebrate finishing third in a tournament, instead of straight to Canada to defend his 2000 points?

Don't see why should he, even if he wasn't defending? He had some time off between Wimbledon and Olympics, and didn't play particularly long matches there, so should be fine I guess.

Usually the first day of a Masters tends to be underwhelming, but the fact that they've given seeds 9-16 byes means that tomorrow is particularly dreadful. The first day at Washington was more compelling. Not sure how much I'll be tuning in until Tuesday...
