The Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati announced its draw today, and here are the results. Rafael Nadal is seeded fourth and has a bye in the first round. He will play the second round against the winner of the match between two qualifiers, yet to be announced.
Rafa was drawn in the same quarter as defending champion Roger Federer, and the same half as Andy Murray. This sets him up for a potential quarterfinal match against Federer and semifinal against Murray. Other potential quarterfinal opponents are Tommy Haas and Nicolas Almagro. Besides Murray, Rafa could play in the semifinal against Tomas Berdych, Stanislas Wawrinka, or Tommy Robredo. Potential final opponents include Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin Del Potro, and David Ferrer.
Good Luck Rafa!
