Only 16 hrs or so away from the draw so it's probably no point of speculating, but it seems both Rafa and Fed are uncertain of participation based on this story http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...591/story.html. Based on Gilles ranking, he should be the 9th seed and just missed the bye, which I think probably is better that way since he probably needs more matches to get under his belt. But if there's any withdrawal at the top, he'll get in the top 8 seeds and the bye. But anyway, we'll see in a few hours. Hopefully he gets a good draw, but frankly, I don't know what kind of draw is good for him anymore.

Oh, Gael is also in Montreal, so he'll play, maybe?

I like all the Frenchies and especially the 4 top ones, so it's a bit sad that all 4 of them seem to be in such dire at the moment (maybe not Jo, but still, he didn't do particularly good either). Just really hope that Gilles can regain his footing at the American hardcourts.

Maybe not so exciting, but Gillou is at the Montreal draw ceremony. They didn't have the camera on him, but he got a pretty good laugh from the crowd when he drew Dancevic Live stream is on the Montreal website: http://rogerscup.com/men/english/home.php

Edit: Oh, haha, because Dancevic was there at the ceremony too

Thanks for the info. I tried to open the draw coverage on the website but it won't connect. Oh well.

So he's playing Dancevic. I like Frankie. And he usually plays well at his home tourney, still remembered his match against Rafa some years ago. Damn, I guess that I can consider this as a bad draw, for me as a fan anyway. The upside is, they will probably put Dancevic on main show court, so there'll likely be coverage. Too bad it's not on CBC.

R1: Dancevic, R2: Sela/Q, R3: Tsonga and then it's Fed in the Quarter.

Poor draw for Gilles. Will there be live streams the whole week?

A little write up regarding the draw ceremony, too bad there's no photo accompany the article: http://www.sportsnet.ca/tennis/2009/..._cup_men_draw/

MONTREAL -- Two players turned up at the draw for the US$3 million Rogers Cup on Friday and, wouldn't you know it, they were picked to play one another in the first round.

Canada's top player, Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., and Frenchman Gilles Simon exchanged surprised smiles and a handshake after numbers drawn randomly from a pot made them first-round opponents for the hardcourt tournament that begins Monday at Uniprix Stadium.

"What a coincidence," said Dancevic. "But he's a great player.

"He did really well here last year in Toronto, so it's going to be a tough match.

...

Simon, who is ranked and seeded ninth, will play Dancevic for the first time, even though they are both 24 and have watched one another grow up through the junior circuit and on through the Futures and Challenger series into the main ATP Tour events.

"It's surprising -- he's a player I've seen at a lot of tournaments and I've never played him," said Simon. "That's the luck of the draw.

"But I've seen him a lot. He's given problems to a lot of good players, so I expect a tough match."

Dancevic, who has been ranked as high as 65th, is currently 111th in a season in which he has at times been very good and very ordinary.

He reached the final of a grass court event at Eastbourne, England, losing to Dmitry Tursunov, then lost in the first round at Wimbledon. More recently, he got to the semifinals at Indianapolis, before losing to American Sam Querry, one of the tour's hottest players this summer.

"I feel good about my game," said Dancevic, who will have home court advantage and may also have a edge because Simon had to curtail his training to rest sore legs in recent weeks.

"It'll take a few games for us to get used to each other's style," he added. "He's an extremely consistent player.

"He doesn't make many errors. He's extremely fast and agile. He gets to a lot of balls and makes you play a lot of balls. And he's really good on important points. It'll be interesting to see what's going to happen."

.It is a second year in a row that Dancevic has had a tough draw at the Rogers Cup. Last year, he upset Mario Ancic in the first round before bowing to Djokovic.

TSN in Canada is showing everyday from R1. I always assume that if there's a TV station showing it, there's a chance of livestream, let's hope.

I think it's a good draw.

Considering how he's been playing, anyone he would face in the QF would be hard for him, but the rounds leading up to that are not loaded with superb players, to be honest. They're all people he can deal with considering that Tsonga also isn't that great lately.

Frank might be difficult in first round but Gilles *should* win. He can beat the Ego King.

I saw Frank in Indy. His girlfriend is cute, he's cute, has good hair, has a stylish one-handed bh but none of those things are too convincing of a threat to Gillou.

Seriously, I never worry about Gilles' playing anyone. Alleeeezzz Gilles!!!!

I think that the draw looks good for him. Dancevic, with his home crowd or not is still ranked 102 positions below Gilles. He's 1-1 with Jo, 2-0 against Fed.
