i think cinci is the ideal preparation for him than toronto same hc surface, Toronto is slow hardcourt like Aussie and also its 3 week before USO, if he skips its better be Toronto and he can beg off due to injury on Toronto rather than Cinci
but if he plays and goes deep in Toronto he can tank cinci if he thinks he has enough match play but knowing rafa from previous yrs idk if tanking is in his mind but i thought i saw him tank the queens tourney so there is hope
