CINCINNATTI MASTERS AUG. 11th to 18th
Since no one has created this thread yet, I took it upon myself.
Please see below for the entry list obtained from MTF.

The rumor has it that Tsonga is still injured and will not play.
Also, there is speculation that Nadal and JMDP will not play either,
especially if they go deep in Montreal. Needless to say that
Cilic and Troiki will not be playing although their names appear
in the list below. There should be two more US Men (not counting
qualifiers and wildcards) in the main draw. Fish and Queery should
be playing apart from Isner. With Fed unlikely to win, my crystal
ball says Murray will take this one.

Now for the entry list.


1 Djokovic, Novak SRB 1
2 Murray, Andy GBR 2
3 Federer, Roger SUI 3
4 Ferrer, David ESP 4
5 Nadal, Rafael ESP 5
6 Berdych, Tomas CZE 6
7 Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried FRA 7
8 Del Potro, Juan Martin ARG 8
9 Gasquet, Richard FRA 9
10 Wawrinka, Stanislas SUI 10
11 Nishikori, Kei JPN 11
12 Cilic, Marin CRO 12
13 Haas, Tommy GER 13
14 Tipsarevic, Janko SRB 14
15 Raonic, Milos CAN 15
16 Almagro, Nicolas ESP 16
17 Simon, Gilles FRA 17
18 Kohlschreiber, Philipp GER 18
19 Querrey, Sam USA 19
20 Monaco, Juan ARG 20
21 Isner, John USA 21
22 Janowicz, Jerzy POL 22
23 Anderson, Kevin RSA 23

Now that JMDP got out in R16 itself, I hope he plays Cincy.
The few extra days should hopefully heal his aching back.

Also, Nadal withdrawing from doubles probably means he will
take the extra practice he needs in Cincy SIngles, instead of
Montreal Doubles.

So, Cincy Field is looking good.

WILD CARDS ANNOUNCED TODAY:
----------------------------------------------------

James Blake, Brian Baker, Ryan Harrison and Jack Sock have been granted wild cards in to the main draw. All the 4 wild cards in the main draw went to
Americans. So, we now have 7 USA players in the main draw (not counting qualifiers).



In qualifying, Australian Bernard Tomic joins a trio of Americans who each reached a career high ranking last month - Steve Johnson, Denis Kudla and Rhyne Williams - in the field.

DRAW is scheduled for 5.30 p.m. on Friday.

Qualifying first round on Saturday and final round on Sunday.

However, some Main Draw matches (typically not more than 4)
will be played on Sunday itself.

Hence, for those of you playing in the ATP Fantasy Game, you
would not know who are the qualifiers before the deadline for
submitting your entry.

The draw is here. Both Nadal and JMDP are playing.
No Tsonga as expected.

Nadal is in Murray's half. Fed is in Nadal's quarter.

Projected QF match ups.

1. Djokovic --- Gasquet
2. Ferrer --- Del Potro
-----------------------------------------------
3. Nadal --- Federer
4. Murray --- Berdych.

Murray gets a revenge match with Gulbis, assuming Gulbis can win his
first round match.

Fed meets Haas in R16.

I hoe Gasquet loses before QF. I don't want to see him getting
thrashed by Djokovic every Friday.

J. Arias commentator with Sportnet on the Canadian TV, mentioned that Pospisil, who was entered in the qualification draw, will get a Special Entry direct into the main draw, because he has been in Canada SF

lol. I agree. I'm just hoping for a Nole vs. DelPo semi. Always a great match between those two. Delpo's my new favorite to watch also. so woo hoo.

Roger's chance of defending his title has diminished significantly with this draw. Nole's chance of making history looks good though.

Unless he implodes on his own -like he almost did against Istomin- and loses to a random player, only Delpo, Rafa and Andy can challenge him next week imo.

Good chance for Djokovic to get the last remaining MS event missing from his resume. On the bottom half I consider Murray the big favorite there. Rafa might not even play and if he does this is just about the worst tournament on the tour for him. Meanwhile Roger has been awesome at Cincy but the poor form and back problems makes everything a big question mark for him. If it is Djokovic-Murray I'd pick Andy to win again.

Roger is not seen anywhere in the doubles draw. Where
does he plan to get match practice in HC before USO?

Winston-Salem? Big Smile

Of the eight Americans that were in the qualifying tournament,
one made it to the Main Draw. His name is McDonald. I have never heard
of him before. He had a WC into the qualifying. Does anyone know anything
about him off the top of the hat.

So, we now have eight Americans in the MD, 3 regular entry,
4 wild cards and 1 qualifier. That is about 15% of the field.
Let us see as to how many make it to the second round.

According to Brad Gilbert earlier, he's 18 years old and had 0 ATP points till he qualified this week. Now he has 25 points Big Smile
