“Terrible draw,” Djokovic said with a laugh, jokingly expressing his disapproval of how the randomly determined draw was working against him.

He may run into a bunch of Frenchmen, R2 vs Monfils, R3 vs Chardy or Tsonga, QF vs Gasquet.

It's a bit weird that seeds 5&6 (Ferrer and Raonic) are in the bottom half while seeds 7&8 (Dimitrov and Murray) are in the top half.

Re: Working hard in Toronto

The Draw does seem a bit top heavy, as the comments below the ATP article suggest as well:

http://www.atpworldtour.com/News/Tennis/2014/07/31/Toronto-Draw.aspx

Still, this is Djoker's tournament to lose, and his potential Final opponent- and assuming he should he be there, eg Federer, Cilic, Berdych or Raonic - are eminently beatable.
Will be interesting to see how Andy Murray goes - his recent form not good to suggest he will be a Quarter Final opponent.

Re: Working hard in Toronto

Nole is so worrying about his hard draw in Toronto so he decided to go One Direction.....

Re: Working hard in Toronto

lol that's 3 wasted hours he could've used for stretching or meditating...instead he's polluted his mind with boy-band noise.

if he needed to chill, there's tons of good culture in toronto (jazz and blues clubs, museums and theatre, etc).

oh well, he's required to hit a yellow fluffy ball, well, not have good taste...:D

nice follow up to the underwear modelling gig in montreal.

tennis players...:rolleyes:

Re: Working hard in Toronto

As usual, Nole plays doubles in Canada to shake off the rust from not playing since Wimbledon. He teams up with Wawrinka this year.

First round vs Cabal and Marrero, a pair of doubles specialist. If they win, they will face Nestor and Zimonjic and I am quite confident that they will stop there.

Re: Working hard in Toronto

Nole's doubles match will be last on Grandstand tomorrow. Since his R2 potential opponents are not playing Monday, Nole will like start his R2 singles match on Wednesday.

Re: Working hard in Toronto

I think he could've skipped the doubles. The next few weeks will provide more than enough tennis to shake off the rust for USO. He needs to spend less time on the court not more.

yes, he's been given the Wednesday day session slot.

I watched a little bit of his practice session today on Centre Court w/ Nick Kyrgios.


Then I left for a bit and came back just at the end. I didn't notice anything wrong while he was practicing, but at the end of the practice he sat down and Kyrgios went to sign for the crowd. Nole was talking to his coach and trainer for a long time and they were listening intently. He seemed... bothered, or unhappy about something. :unsure: Then he had his trainer help stretch him out. (this pic is from far away using zoom, that's why it's so crap)

He used the umpire chair to stretch, did the splits, and was at times pointing to his midsection while his trainer helped him stretch. Then he put on his jacket, hit some signed balls to the crowd and went over to the crowd to sign people's stuff.

I hope he's feeling okay.

Thanks for the update.

I know he usually does all kinds of stretch out after practice. But not sure about the "bothered" part.
