    Baby Fed vs Fed has it ever happened before or would it be the first time.
    Would be the first ever time - Dimitrov has played Nadal, Murray and Djokovic. Federer is the only one left to play, but to even meet Roger he has to beat Nadal (not happening)

    Murray looking strong against Benneteau. Cincy is playing a fair bit faster than Montreal was and it suits his game.

    I don't think it's out of the question considering that he pushed Nadal all the way at Monte Carlo. Well, at least I hope so. I don't relish the opportunity to see the old man get another whipping from Nadal.

    There is a possibility Nadal could have a really off-day

    Anyone else feel that Bartoli's retirement seems a little premature? She's cited injuries as her major reason for calling it a day but so soon after winning Wimbledon, this is a real loss to the women's game. I'd have liked to see her make this decision at the end of the season. Biggest surprise since Henin retired first time in 2008.

    It is a real shame, but Bartoli has been a great example of perseverance over the last several years, and who knows, she may well be back if she feels that she's retiring prematurely.

    Bartoli was one hell of a shock. Wouldn't surprise me if she does a U-turn sooner or later.

    Baby Fed vs. Fed will only happen if Nadal's knee plays up. Not likely.

    Perhaps Bartoli got exposed for taking drugs and WTA and she thought that best way to cover this all up is for Marion to quietly walk away from the sport and not damage the name and image of tennis. Although, I think that's very unlikely, but you never know.

    Murray looking good against Benneteau who really didn't start getting into the match until the 2nd set, Federer played well in the 3rd especially in the game where he decisively broke Haas at the end but tbh Haas massively chocked in the 2nd to allow Federer back in.

    Also just can't see Dimitrov beating Nadal but anything is possible,,.

    Rafa looking hurt. Federer better take note to cripple those knees even if he ends up getting beaten.

    Is he? I saw him bend over and grab his knees a bit but he looks ok so far.

    Why do the commentators and the media still hype Fedal match? Those days are long gone where these guys would have a competitive match. Now, Roger's age catching up to him, it's nothing but a humiliating beatdown for him.

    Nadal may tank just needs the excuse of losing to a good player.

    I think he maybe tanking for the US open doesn't feel like he wants to play Federer.

    Dimitrov is even starting to shank like Federer. Baby Fed indeed.

    He learnt everything from Papa Fed and Mama Maria.
