I know man but it would be so much fun  :)). like seriously I don't see anybody trouble him. maybe Djokovic but I really doubt it. Djokovic doesn't look too good atm. Rafa will take MC or Alex will be walking naked in Calgary in red shoes  :whistle: :rofl_2:

Ohoho! Is this like an honest to goodness wager, or is it like when Giselle Bundchen said she'd walk naked through New York City if the Giants won the Super Bowl against the Pats that one year they were 18-0?

I'm watching the Dimitrov v Tipsarevic match.  I really like GD's game. Some of the shots he's played in this match were pure manna from heaven.   Really nice to watch, this man.

He's up a set , 76, and giving JT a hard time in the opening game of the 2nd set on JT's serve.

Tipsarevic's largely defensive play has helped him keep it close, but I'll go for the attacking game & the touch of genius of his opponent everytime, win or lose.   

And JT manages to hold.  1-0 in the second set.

Edit:   - And GD wins, 6-1 in the second set. What a performance!

Amazing win for Dimitrov. No surprise here though  ;-()     Same with Dolgo over Tomic.

Kohli after injury having good run, and ultimate challenge most likely in 3rd round  ;-()

couple interesting matches and wins :)

Kevin Anderson d. Jerzy - close match but looks like Jerzy ain't ready.
Fernando goes down to Marinko Matosevic. I watched Marinko play at the USOpen last year, and I don't like Fernando.

Dimitrov finally with a good upset taking out a slumping Tipsy.
Gasquet holding strong for a good season so far and comes away from Paire in a 3 setter.
Tsonga doing good with a solid straight set win over Davydenko.

Dolgopolov currently up 6-1 2-2 on Del Potro, interesting.
And I'm excited for Goffin who's up 6-2 0-1 against Almagro! Let's go! -- aww Goffin lost to the spanish anger monster.

Del Potro comes through in the end.  Ever since I first saw him play here in Washington, I learned that he is a slow starter and will often lose the first set while getting into the game. It must irritate opponents  :( .

Nadal vs. Matosevic should be good. Matosevic rips the ball, so it'll be nice to watch Nadal making those crazy instant defense/offense changes that he usually pulls against power players!

Oh, I have no doubt Rafa will mutilate the guy. But I see potential for some good points.

Gonna start the day with a little Raonic vs Nieminen. Wanna see if there's something impressive there, and if not, I'll be switching to Berdych.

Great ground game from Berdych today, looked solid enough.

Raonic is playing more aggressive than his usual, or am I not watching this right, but Nieminen has some interesting counter-attacks to display. Tiebreak of the decisive set.

Ah, General CD. It appears we were not right about Funky Flo, he defeated Bautista. Too bad the match was not streamed. Would have loved to see it.
