Discussion in 'General Pro Player Discussion' started by Lleyton Hewitt, Aug 5, 2006.
when is the draw out?
The official draw should come out next week I believe. So far 40 of the top 43 women will play. The one's that won't are Bovina, Molik and Chanda Rubin due to injury and maybe Venus Williams...but Venus has entered the tournament.
The tourney starts Monday though, and qualifying starts tomorrow..
That's in Toronto for the men... Montreal are hosting the women this year. Last year it was the opposite.
Ooh ok thanks got it I was confused at that bit since Nadal won Montreal at this time last year.
It comes out today i believe.Like around 2 pm canada time.
oh sorry i meant the MENS Masters - i was confused myself too.
The draw is finally out here is the link http://www.rogerscupmen.com/2/en/draws/singlesdraw.pdf
This time Nadal won't benefit from a weak draw like he mostly does. He has blake on his side of the draw
Roger has alot of big names on his draw, could meet Grosjean in the second round then Haas in the 3rd round.
wow, one of the more exciting tournaments to watch.
Fed could meet Hewitt early, and Fed has Safin in the semis.
Roddick and Blake will meet early as well, they will play Nadal in the quarters if they win.
Wow! There are going to be alot of great first round matches!
Federer vs Paul-Henri Mathieu
Marat Safin vs Robredo
Hewitt vs Chela
Murray vs Ferrer
Ginepri vs Nalbandian
James Blake vs the future of canadian tennis Philip bester
Santoro vs Gasquet
Possible Berdych vs. Nadal third round can't wait if that happens, their match here in Cincy last year was a thing of beauty.
Safin aint gonna be in the semis, lets not kid ourselves, he is too unpredictable.
Hewitt vs. Chela rematch, maybe Lleyton will do the spitting this time
Man i have seen a better masters draw thia year!... WOW Blake and Roddick in the same quarter! nevermind always being in opposites half. Ok i wonder what Fed comes up with i mean it always takes him a while to settle in the masters like last year. Mathieu will be a perfect test then Grosjean then maybe Haas or Tursunov. I really hope Hewitt will play him. Hasnt been one of them matches for a while.
Roddick wont get far and i think Nadal may get the better out of Blake this year. Henman v Murray 2nd round too?
Bottom quarter of the top draw and top quarter of the bottom draw is wide open if u understand.
Ok my last 8 predictions:
Federer v Hewitt (6-7 4-6)
Ljubicic v Baghdatis (no way Safin can get far in 2 consecutive tournaments) (4-6 6-3 7-5)
Murray v Nieminen (6-4 6-3)
Blake v Nadal (5-7 6-7)
Hewitt v Ljubicic (7-6 3-6 6-4)
Nadal v Murray (7-6 7-5)
Hewitt v Nadal (7-6 6-3)
Ok everyone will disagree from the SF part but otherwise a good prediction. Everyone should no i support Hewitt now and saying he will lose is not the way to go.
Yeah, I guess losing to Goldstein than Clement gives you the confidence to beat Federer and Nadal in the same tournament, something no one has ever done I do believe.
OMG, both Nalbandian and Blake on Nadal's side of the draw. I don't believe my eyes. This could be very interesting!!!!!
this Lleyton Hewitt kid is really a headcase, wonder what planet he's from.
yeah but its just like if u support a football team (soccer) u will always think they will win. guys u dont no what support means.
Tacobell look at ur sig for a minute....i wonder what planet u are on.
yea I do know what support means. I support Roddick and he's my favorite player but I know he won't win this. He will eventually win more titles as he goes back to his old form, but it does not happen overnight and currently he is not in the state to do so. Same with Hewitt, you don't go from two early round losses to winning a Masters Tournament in one week. Theres also something called being realistic, something that you obviously havn't learned to be.
BTW, about my sig I didn't say he'll reach number 1 this year, next year, or even 3 years from now. He's 23 years old and he has the time and game to improve. He has something Hewitt doesn't, natural talent. Hewitt has burned out and is too old to be the player he once was, he has lost speed which is his biggest strength. So yes, I actually do know what planet i'm on.
HAHAHAHAHA Roddick natural talent?? you must be jocking you make Lleyton hewitt sound like a genius. May be you are the one that needs to come back to earth.
you dont serve the ball 156 mph B!T!* without having natural talent.
wow than karlovic must be one of the biggest "natural talent" .
A really good draw.
Both sides have really good names, the Fed section looks a bit tougher, but not by much.
This should be a great tournament to watch, hopefully there will be more coverage for this one then the last few tournaments.
Natural Talent my arse hes got no backhand at all, 'TRYS' volleying, gets angry when things not going his way.
Who's Dan Nestor playing? He is capable of really good singles tennis once in a while. (Remember DC & Rios.."i was embarrassed to lose to him((Nestor)) ) LOL Marcelo.
Separate names with a comma.
