Masters Cincinnati Draw
So here it is, David's draw for Cincy. And it's a slight case of "deja vu all over again"...
Once again, he has been drawn into the lower, i.e. Rafael Nadal's half, and once again he finds himself in Andy Murray's quarter. Only that this time, David is bound to already meet him in the second round, after facing a qualifier in the first.
