Cincinnati: The draw

13.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The result of the draw for the Masters-1000 tournament in Cincinnati is quite favourable for Roger.

After a first-round bye he will either play his first match against Jarkko Nieminen (ATP 41) or Alex Bogomolow (ATP 58) - he has never lost against either of the two so far. Philipp Kohlschreiber (ATP 18) could then be waiting in the the round of the last 16 and a clash with Juan Monaco (ATP 10) might follow in the quarters. Roger has also been able to defeat these two players every time in the past. David Ferrer (ATP 5, Roger leads the head-to-head 13:0) or Thomas Berdych (ATP 7) could then be waiting in the semis, before his opponent in the final could be defending champion Andy Murray (ATP 4).

Our world number one will be aiming at his fifth victory in Cincinnati after 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2010.

Isn't there a mistake in the ATP rankings? Federer had a lead of 75 points over Djokovic before the Olympics. With Federer getting Silver (450 points) and Djokovic losing his bronze medal match (270 points), there should have been an additional 180 points, making a gap of 255 points in total. I was surprised to see that the ranking of 6 Aug accounted only for a gap of 165 point. Where did the missing 90 points go?
