Draw has been out for hours and no thread? What am I missing?

https://prod.static9.net.au/fs/f442635c-69c1-4d85-8f69-ab60ab85aee8

Projected pathways for the Big 3 from the third round onwards:
  • Federer: Hurkacz -> Shapovalov -> Berrettini -> Djokovic -> Nadal/Medvedev
  • Djokovic: Evans -> Schwartzman -> Tsitsipas -> Federer -> Nadal/Medvedev
  • Nadal: Carreno Busta -> Kyrgios -> Thiem -> Medvedev -> Djokovic
No easy draw for once. Dangerous opponents for all three. But what about the other contenders?
  • Medvedev: Tsonga -> Wawrinka -> Goffin/Zverev -> Nadal -> Djokovic
  • Thiem: Fritz -> Monfils -> Nadal -> Medvedev -> Djokovic
  • Tsitsipas: Raonic -> Bautista Agut -> Djokovic -> Federer -> Nadal/Medvedev
Medvedev has the softest draw imo and should fancy his chances of making another final. Brutal stuff for Thiem and Tsitsipas though.

That thread literally doesn't show up in GM for me. Bizarre.

Mods please merge/delete.

You probably have the OP on your ignore list. This blocking of threads is a huge fail though, because you have to unignore posters you want to ignore to see posts you want to see. Hope this will be fixed soon.

I don't know why people say Mevedev has a softer draw.

Tiafoe is easily the hardest 1R'er of the top 8 but Medvedev will make him look silly.

If Djokovic had Wawrinka R4 that wouldn't be easy.

If Federer had Tsonga R3 you know he and his fans would be on serious alert.

He's reached that Nadal level of good where most have become easy/do-able match-ups for him.
