staff: Verdasco “mirror gazer” seems pretty apt but to include Lopez in that descrition seems a little harsh…

No, it’s true. My two favourite spanish metrosexuals.

Cindy_Brady Says:

So curious to see how Nadal looks. I’m sure the whole world of tennis is. How are them knees?

I haven’t been this excited about a master series event in a long time. How will Federer play having achieved the record and a baby? Will he still be hungry? Will he care? Will he swing free-er than ever and mow down the field like he did in the years 2004-2006?

Will Djokovic and Murray step up?

Will Del-Potro and Roddick continue their winning ways on hard courts?

Can anyone other than the top 6 win? Don’t think so but will see.

SG Says:

The Rogers Cup. LOL!!! Precognition exemplified.

sar Says:

I think 2 of the 6 will be out pretty soon, before quarters.
