Roger's Canadian Cakewalk
After a glorious month presumably unwinding in his Dubai fortress of solitude and shopping with Mirka at multiple Prada and Louis Vuitton locations, his Rogerness rematerializes in Montreal this week for the next Masters Series showdown. How do his chances look for a defense of his title from last year? Well, just consider the fact that it's called the Rogers Masters Cup. The Swiss superstar's half of the draw is light and airy like a meringue cookie: his scariest potential opponents before the final include Too-tall Karlovic, Gimpy Murray, Shaky Blake and Nikolay "May the Best Man Win" Davydenko. This is like a multiplication worksheet for a calculus student.
