It's been a wild week on and off the court in Cincinnati: Marion Bartoli retired, Maria Sharapova and Jimmy Connors failed in their first outing (and then she canned him), and the likes of John Isner and Tomas Berdych toppled Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. This impending U.S. Open may harbor more intrigue than it has for a few years.
