    I noticed a referance from another topic, saying cincy being the 5th slam. I searched the forums about it, but still came up short. Only thing I got that some user names shuresh or something promotes it all the time, and that's it. Why is it so much more important then the other Master events? :shock:

    I think because Federer finally beat Murray, people started talking about it as the 5th slam, because Murray held the advantage till that win.

    Federer's head-to-head with Murray is the "make or break" for Federer's status as the greatest of all time.

    Fact

    Cincinnati - the real Slam

    "Today's semifinals feature the top 4 players. Unlike the last 2 "Slams". I contend that whoever wins here is the real #1 and the GOAT. I have a feeling it won't be the guy with the elegant strokes."

    For sure, malakas is doing well.

    I have to troll my best to have chances in this thread, no?

    I have to have the right negative attitude or is going to be impossible to out-troll malakas.

    Murray will have a much better 2010 than Nadal. :)

    In what? Modern Warfare campaigning? I agree, Murray will unlock some sweet golden Desert Eagles.

    Nope. its all about sureshs

    the guy was so confident Federer wouldn't win he made a lame thread about how Cinci is the REAL 5TH SLAM and whoever won it was GOAT (suresh being an anti-fed troll)

    and then fed won it, beating murray and djokov on route. he hasnt posted in that thread since the laughter began

    Next year Nadal has chosen the orange muppet show.Let's see what Murray comes up with to beat him!Should be interesting battle!:D

    its because this year, all the top 4 players were in the semi's (Fed, Rafa, Murray, and Djoko) and that did not happen at any of the slams this year.

    No, Fed held the GS advantage over Murray with the demolition job Fed dealt Murray at the Open.
