Default Western & Southern Financial Group Masters - July 17th - August 3rd 2008

I guess this is where Andy will start his hard court season? If I'm wrong, will someone please correct me?

Well the draw is not bad so as long as his knee isn't bothering him too much he could have another good run.

This is pretty much his last "free" tournament where he doesn't have stuff to defend in terms of mandatories - he has R3 to defend at the US Open. So I hope he can pile on some more points here and entrench himself in the top 10 and solidify his position in the race.

Good news for Andy is that Blake, who is ahead of him in the rankings, is defending RU from here last year and although it's still 2 weeks until those points come off, if Blake has a poor event Andy will probably pass James with just a couple of wins.

Andy has received a 0 pointer on his ranking from Indianapolis because he withdrew late without medical reason and it was his second this year (other was Valencia).

So he has to count the 0 points from Indy as one of his 5 best optionals for the next year rather than one where he scored points.

Very solid match from Andy today after a slow start - had Querrey on a string at the end and the American couldn't wait to get off court.

Next up, Tursunov in R3, who took care of Gasquet. Andy has a very good record against Tursunov.

Well he's played 2 good matches this week to down Safin and Gasquet but I'm still hopeful - Andy will give Dima a lot of what he doesn't like to deal with. Hopefully a lot of short slices, dropshots, off-pace shots, some nice loopy deep shots, take any rhythm away from the Russian.

Hopefully Andy comes out and does this quickly and solidly - would be good for him to make the QFs without even expending too much energy - he may need it for the likes of Kolya (assuming he survives Moya tonight and then Andreev tomorrow.

Ahh thanks! But why is it that Cincinatti is replacing his 200 points from Marseille rather than just replacing the 5 points from last year?

Yeh, 1st set had me worried initially, but once he settled into the match he was in total control - shudda been a bagel IMO 4-0 vs Tursunov so no reason he should lose, and then if Davydenko cant pull his match around, Andy has a great shot at making SF

Because the points from Cincinatti 2007 still haven't been taken off and they won't be for another 2 weeks. Cincinatti is played earlier than usually this year because of the Olympics. The points for Andy's 5th best optional have been taken off temporarily.

the stagger from the ranking points messes with my head as well

and ANdy losing a helluva lotta points this week because of it
