The Canadian Masters event may struggle a bit this year, due to its place in the calendar, directly after the London Olympics. But the organisers definitely know how to pull off a surprise. At first, nobody knew when the draw ceremony would take place. And then all of a sudden, without warning, the draw materialised on the tournament website...
Anyway, so here it is, David's draw for Toronto, the first event of the North American hardcourt swing. He has been drawn into the top half and there into the top, i.e. Djokovic's quarter:
 Novak Djokovic (SRB) vs BYE
QUALIFIER vs Bernard Tomic (AUS)
Sam Querrey (USA) v Jürgen Melzer (AUT)
BYE vs  Kei Nishikori (JPN)
 Gilles Simon (FRA) vs BYE
Tommy Haas (GER) vs David Nalbandian (ARG)
Radek Stepanek (CZE) vs Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR)
BYE vs  Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG)
Complete draw here.
This time, David couldn't be drawn against a seeded player. But it's still far from an easy opponent that he'll get to face in the first round. Tommy Haas (at #36 currently ranked five placed above David) is one of the few players on the Tour who has a perfect record against David. They've met three times so far and on all three occasions, Haas prevailed, though it's been five and a half years since their last meeting (at the Australian Open 2007). Haas has shown himself to be in good form of late and chances are that this is going to be a tough match for David.
Should he make it past Tommy Haas, the first seeded player he'd get to meet would be Gilles Simon in the second round. David has a 2-1 record against Simon and won their last two meetings, the most recent of which took place at São Paulo, this year.
And then in the third round, we could theoretically get an all-Argentine match-up that hasn't happened since 2008 - David vs Delpo. But it's still a long way until then, both for David and for Delpo, who will be coming to Toronto straight from his bronze-medal match, due to take place tomorrow.
And first of all, it's the "battle of the veterans" - David against Tommy Haas.
