Should we be worried, Maestronians?

I believe that's almost like a common thing on the tour. It may be a preventive thing.

RF fans should be celebrating instead, because the draw is peRFectly suited to RF, anti-perfectly to Djokovic. The organizers made sure Novak has to be in perfect form to win USO, something that isn't in the interest of the very corrupt USTA.

I’m surprised they still work as well as they do... (the knees that is)
I ain’t worried, any loss here will be easier to deal with than what happened at Wimby...

Every year it's the same thing... But they get away with it because people are so gullible as to not even suspect foul play. (Or they know about it, but keep quiet because it suits their player.)

What is tennis turning to?
I suspect it as well. Did you notice that Djokovic and Nadal drew specific players that they may have trouble with? Though, they are late in the draw so fair enough. Those matches may not even take place.

Well, yeah, they are late in the draw because they are all seeded. If the USTA could, they would give Rafa Thiem in R1 and Novak Medvedev in R3, and then have Rafa an Novak play in the QFs. But they can't. Maths doesn't allow it.

RIGGED. Corporate interests and sociopathic bureaucrats have gained way too much power in sports.

Also, Kyrgios was placed as far away from the Big3 as possible so as not to give him a blockbuster match after his disappointing display at Cincy.

Appeal to the ma$$e$ and that gross USO crowd that only knows Fedal.

When Pam interviewed Fed yesterday, she emphasized how light the practice was. I could tell that Roger didn't like it and quickly reminded her that he was practicing later in the day too.
interesting. i'm sure he doesnt want to over do it in practices either and he got there earlier than normal since he was out in cincy early. is that the only pic we have though? hopefully its preventative idk.

those who were at his practices said he looked sharp and didn't notice anything but i guess we'll find out soon

Nishikori, Djokovic, Nadal? No problemo.

:unsure:
Do you even know how draws work? Fed is no3 so he couldn't avoid Novak and Rafa, or Rafa and Novak in sf and f. Nishikori is worst of 5-8 seed, so this most possible easy draw, not to mention his pet Goffan in 4r and so on...

why???

Nadal dismissed NK at Wimby.

what we need to see is NK vs Djokovic, after all that smack talk!
Kyrgios is still dangerous and Federer and Djokovic are my favorites. I usually want Nadal to get all the obstacles thrown his way lol.

Doesn't look good.

Don't understand the draw complaints this USO, I think they're about fair, apart from the fact that Medvedev had to land somewhere

This was already explained in the Fed News thread. He was icing his legs because it was so hot, he specifically said he had "no knee issues." Said to Blick yesterday, Swiss outlet.

After the last couple years, I’ll just be glad to see him get past Goffin. A four-set loss to Novak in the semis with loads of blown break points sounds A-OK to me.

i hope so, i plan to go to the 4th round live. Either 3rd or 4th, but leaning towards 4th. Idk if something deep in me thought it would be better not to see fed's 4th round match because that would have been the ticket i purchased . Except last year i was like lets experience some other matches so i just got day tickets for armstrong and got more bang for my buck, but i guess it was probably for the better that i didnt see fed melt against millman.

Thank you! I just hope I dont melt in the heat. Last year I nearly passed out and that was just me sitting.

We might have discussed this but have you been to Wimbledon before
No, never been to Wimbledon but it is something I'd love to tick off my bucket list one day. Maybe we could go together the next time Federer and Djokovic play a match there? :p

USO's corrupt organizers are aware that Kyrgios is too unpredictable in terms of motivation so they can't use him as easily to threaten any top players.

Reality is nobody cares.
In that case why should the outcome in the finale matter?

I mean, you can't give a hoot about the outcome but not be interested in HOW we got to that outcome. I doubt people aren't interested in rigging, they're just largely clueless about it. They trust the ATP, the Establishment, the sponsors, the suits, because they're brainwashed not to question anything.
