    They won't reshuffle the draw. The rule is that a draw can't be reshuffled once the first Order Of Play has been released.

    There's more "way" than there used to be -- Roger's slowing down and not 100% either. But it's probably gonna be Nole, so yeah.

    He played quite badly in Paris, so maybe fast indoor courts are not his forte either

    I think that was mostly about be tired. He's won 2 small indoor tournaments this year. At that point, he had made the finals in his last 6 tournaments, so I think he was gassed out.

    As usual, the health of all the players will be really interesting to see.

    A couple comments in this thread show why I continue to tease those who speak in absolutes. At least two people said it was Djokovic for sure no matter what.
