now, everybody suck in the draw. give it to novak and lets go to next weekNot on purpose (but maybe), but Rafa dropping Cincy was very beneficial on his part, as he blocks Djoker or Fed from points (possibly a significant amount too).
Tourneys really should force the players to make a decision before Sunday that way they can rearrange some things if need be.
Don't think Rafa really cares or thinks about (and shouldn't have to) it this way, but it will likely benefit him.
This also hurts the tourney and draw now, as Fed v Djoker final would be a pretty good showdown after recent events.
But that’s simply not true. Nadal’s draw last year at USO was just insane, it would’ve been very, very close even for peak Big3 members.
