Well Roger and Andy are in the same half, so Novak got a break from this.

Uh oh.  What will the "The Draw is rigged for Federer" conspiracy theorists say now?   :zipped:

they made a real draw for a change........the announcer asked somebody to comeover and pull out those plastic coins from the trophy to make a real draw finally........last year it was all very unclear.........the draw is quite balanced as a result of un-rigged draw ceremony........djokovic, del potro, ferrer, tipsarevic in one half and in the other half murray, federer, tsonga, berdych........

The draw is held the same way each year.  They have different people pull the 'coins', but the DRAW itself is the  SAME WAY each year. :whistle:

This year only the Donald Young fans think the draw is fixed!   :rofl_2:  Poor Donald.  Can't catch a break.

i remember last year many people were unhappy with the way it was conducted........even though somebody pulled out those coins last year as well, we din't get to see what was actually going on and the draw organizers secretly kept muttering among themselves through out the ceremony........

There was still the big crowd of people there and the draw WAS available for people to watch.  There was a stream last year (I just didn't post it here)...but it was available.  It's always been available since the 'technologically age'... :))

I see an epic roasting here. Something like 6-0, 6-1, 6-1
Then we will fight in the shade.

of course the stream was there but i remember when they drew the 3rd and 4th seeds, they muttered for almost a minute, announced the names and then it went on that screen........you can check MTF thread, most people were unhappy with that.......i think nadal initially drew federer but they just changed it for the benefit of tournament and their TV ratings........

No they didn't.  Some "sports" sites MIS-READ the draw and had it out that Nadal was with Federer, when it wasn't. Then those sports sites had to retract their story when they realized they was in error.  The Draw itself was "correct"!  They did not 'change the draw' for TV ratings or anything.  It was some sports reporter that had the incorrect draw out on their site.

Sid should be happen.  I see a lot of "sports people" are picking Murray as the favorite.

federer is the only slam winner in his half........both del potro and djokovic in the other half have tasted slam success, particularly at the us open........unless dp is injured, it's nicely balanced this time........those who are expecting a walk in the park for novak are in for a surprise........both dp and tipsarevic can beat djokovic........

I hope not!  I don't really like Young's game, but he is an American and they will be playing in New York....so you never know.  But... GO ROGER!!!! I just hope Roger doesn't take him for granted.

Possible good 1st round match:

Del Potro vs Nalbandian!
