    Federer never really cared all that much about Cincinnati (at least not more than any other MS tournament) until this thread was created. Thank you, sureshs, good job.

    Federer pre-sureshs at The Real Slam: 2-6 in title tries.

    Poast-sureshs? 5-2.

    Coincidence?

    Yes, the need to rejoice in the sureshsian vortex and thus achieve such greatness only became apparent as a result of Poobian pretzel logic. thank you mr sureshs!:D

    Well, that, but more importantly a player is defending points when attempting a title defense.

    If the title is not defended, his ranking points go down. Thats why commentators, players, et al use verbiage like, "no/very little/a lot of points to defend"

    Wimbledon? Chump Tournament. US Open? Fake Mickey Mouse Chinese knock-off of Cincinnati. The REAL slam STILL reigns supreme!
