No need to get all down on the event just because Nadal isn't there.  These players play the entire year to get to this final so I'm sure they will be up for it.  Plus, I like the round-robin event.  It's good to 'change' things  up in tennis sometimes!

crazy draw......

 Federer No1/No2 -easy group = tough semi 

Del Potro  No2/No1 - 2 titles indoors in last few weeks .......already in semis....

Ferrer No3- Paris M will take its toll 

Janko No4- joke



Djoko No1/No2- tough group, but his main problem is private life (father's health),if he can focus he is favorite for semis (final too)

Andy No2/No1- tough group,but this is not last year's Andy,this is GS champ & Gold medalist: favorite for semis (final too)

Berdych No3- can win all matches in group & can loose all matches in group

Tsonga No4-can win all matches in group & can loose all matches in group

If you don't have anything constructive to post, I suggest you not post. Because it sounds suspiciously similar to whining.

I think we are going to see some more tanking. Watch Feru or Tipsy win the whole thing  :gleam:.

David Ferrer may be too tired to win anything.  He just won his master's title today....and have to turn around and play tomorrow!

Pumped for this tournament, and how could you not be?  Top players playing each other, no real easy matches, at least on paper.  Looking forward to some great tennis!  Whoo!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Bird man up a break in the first.  Not seeing the match right now, but clearly Murray must be tired.  ;)

good win for Murray but not too impressed with him atm. Tomas is an UE machine. really not sure why, despite all of his skills, he just mentally goes away
