The Cincinnati draw is out and boy, why even bother leaving Toronto?
Roger and A-Rod are again in the same quarter. Simon and Kiefer, hilariously, are set to meet in the first round, with the winner playing James Blake (Kiefer knocked out Blake last week in Toronto). Gasquet and Llodra play in the first round again. Meanwhile, David Ferrer is in Rafa's quarter.
Some potentially interesting matchups:
- Belucci vs. Karlovic (1r)
- Safin vs. Tursonov (1r)
- Youzney vs. Haas (1r)
- Roddick vs. Kohlschreiber (2r)
- Gasquet vs. Safin (2r)
- Federer vs. Ancic (3r)
- Gasquet vs. Murray (3r)
- Monfils vs Nadal (3r)
- Federer vs. Roddick (QF)
- Murray vs. Federer (SF)
I'm sorry, but can you really root against Nadal? He will have a chance to become #1 in Cincinnati. If you saw his reaction last night after his win over Andy Murray, you know how much he wants it.
