    I was wrong last year, but this year I guarantee that Nadal is not winning it. I'll be Club Chopin's reputation on it!

    You should know by now that Nadal never defends a non-clay title! :wink:

    Sureshs might have the GOAT thread, but Sentinel is still the GOAT.

    Is Nadal definitely not playing in Cincy?

    Will the 22 time slam champ have enough left in the tank, to post a good run at Cincy, I wonder?

    Somebody will win Cincinnati this year. I have a feeling it won't be the guy with the elegant strokes.

    Meanwhile Novak still losing much wanted sleep, from his previous results there... I am quite anxious for the in depth chapter on his endeavours at Cincinatti, in his future autobiography. Should be a good insight into the struggles of trying to win the best there is...

    Becker was brought in for one single purpose...not to win RG (he never won a clay title anywhere!) but to hone Djok's game for The Real Slam, to be as sharp as Boom Boom in his annihilation of Wilander in '85 (6-4, 6-2) that interrupted Swedish domination of the sureshsian fields of Decoturf ('83-4, '86, '88 Wilander,
    '87, '90 Edberg).

    Draw looks almost identical to Canada except that Ferrer and Murray were swapped.

    It's so nice that you think Djokovic has elegant strokes.

    Thank you.

    okay, I'll bite: WHY is Cincinnati considered (at least by TTers) "the real Slam"?

    Mmm, much great form. Tsonga will be waiting for him though. Hopefully Djokovic can get more than 4 games this time, and make it more competitive for Jo. I heard he got a "lack of effort" warning in the second set, for being too casual with his play.

    How have you been anyways?

    Please all of you guys are wrong and suresh is the best ever.

    Him talking about elegant strokes, didn't refer to Fed. But to Nadal. OP thinks Nadal has the most elegant strokes. Why did you think he was talking about Fed?
