Default Toronto 2008 - Nadal wins 12th Masters Series Title (30th career title)

It seems that everyone is still in 7th heaven after the Wimbledon win (). Time to put that behind us and think about the hardcourt season.


I wasn't planning to start a thread but since nobody else has bothered yet.

And let's not forget our ...exciting MIT competition. The time has come when uncertainty will creep in and influence people's predictions and when the true experts (or the lucky ignoramuses) will advance and take the lead.

Note: the draw will be announced on Saturday.

I was wondering who would start a tournament thread. Metis is the logical choice, what with the MIT and all.

Rafa FTW.

He's been undefeated for as long as I've posted in this forum.

EDIT: I love how most of us don't even need to see draws.

Metis I didn't start the thread but its because Xoman told me he wanted to do it and I thought I shouldn't be greedy with the thread starting

Put me down for QF

Edit: This Wimbledon final has made me forget essentials Rafa

We have to conserve your powers for the Slams. I suggested that Xoman should start the Cinci thread (he started the victorious Queens one) so that the pre-slam pattern continues.

(Imagine if I were actually superstitious )

I'll have to wait until the draw comes out to make my guess, I suppose. For now, put me down for the final. I might change it to win - I'm still feeling optimistic.

This is probably off topic but I'm not going to let that stop me from asking.

Has anyone seen an announcement of when the winner of Roland Garros and Wimbledon is planning his Toronto arrival? He seems to be practicing but the source of this picture gave no indication when he is leaving Mallorca.

To go even bit more off topic I'm wondering if he will be bringing Xisca again this year so he can show her Toronto? If he does hopefully when he get to Cincy he'll send her to Kings Island while he concentrates on tennis this year.

I'm sorry for the questions!
