Canada season is over (for now, there's Quebec in September of course) and the tour is moving across the south border again. Cincinnati this year will, just like Roger's Cup, be a an event that's big on paper only since lots of big names are missing again this week. Rafael Nadal will get another shot at overtaking Andy Murray's World no 1 spot in ATP. Karolina Pliskova will likely hold onto her no 1 ranking for this week as well, although there's a theoretic chance Simona Halep takes it from her.
These threads are weekly threads with just tennis talk: match talk, past, current or upcoming events in tennis etc. Spamming (including muggy politics talk) and general sports talk can be done elsewhere such as the usual megathreads, current one is called S/OT 5.

There are 128 players in the Grand Slam qualifiers. What is the probability that the first 5 alternates as of today will make it into the Qs - i.e., that at least 5 players scheduled to play in the Qs as of now withdraw by Tuesday/Wednesday?

Another way is players in Q getting into main draw Mouse Trap. Eg. at least 1 more withdrawal is likely expected (Vika).

But I don't really know answer, I would guess reasonably unlikely on the Sunday before Q starts.

Especially as MD draw players probably withdraw after Q started now.

Good point n88 - the only thing is that such info hss to be known by the start of Qs, so much earlier than the deadline for MD. But thanks, I didn't consider this.

All Q players must be in New York by now surely, so would have withdrawn by now if they were going to on most part. Unless there's any in the New Haven draw which I don't know and haven't looked.

MTF is really muggy, there's a currently a 7 page discussion on a Rafa clip where he supposedly says "I had more injuries than Djokovic, Murray, Federer combined". Problem is, he didn't say that, he just said he more injury breaks than the other top players, which is true.
