No one gets a bye this time around.
Novak has Hewitt in the second round. Other notables in Novaks quarter are: Jurgen Melzer, Davydenko, Verdasco, Simon, Wavrinka, Troicki, and Tsonga.
Brian Baker is going to meet the X-man in his first round, also in Novak's quarter.
Roger Federer has Nalbandian in the second round, possible Andy Roddick in the third. Other notables are Stepanek, Feliciano Lopez, Delpo, Ferrero (still a threat), Marin Cilic, Kevin Anderson, and Berdman
Andy Murray has David Ferrer, Youzhny, John Isner, Dolgopolov, Gasquet, Tomic, and a few clay court specialists that shouldn't give him trouble.
Rafa's quarter has Tipsarevic, Benneteau, Kohlschreiber, Baggy, Juan MOnaco, Raonic, Ivo Karlovic and Nico Almagro. There are also clay courters that Rafa should be able to handily school.
I think Baker can take Xavier - if he has any gas left in his tank that is!
Then I hear that Harrison is next ... IF Ryan wins.
Should be fun to watch. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's final.
Baker has game enough to beat the X-Man.. It depends on how much gas he has. The playing schedule isn't out yet though. We will find out when the playing schedule comes out.
Going to add: Roger gets Novak and Nadal gets Murray.
Roger vs. Novak last year for your viewing pleasure :)
Novak vs Tsonga
Roger vs Ferrero
Andy vs Ferrer
Rafa vs Raonic
I like your Novak vs. Tsonga
I don't know about Roger vs. Ferrero. I'm looking at that section and you have Del Potro and Berdych. Ferrero played well for a set and a half and I think he still has the game but those heavy hitters will probably take him out in 4 sets.
I sold my Murray stock and buying into the Ferrer wagon. I like him to get into the semis. Murray won't make it that far. In that section, I like the way Tommy Haas has been playing but he'll have to beat the Dog. Either of these guys will be a good challenge for Andy Murray and will probably beat him. He's hit a patch of bad grass and we'll see what Ivan has done about it.
I like the 4th round clash between Rafa and Raonic. I'm taking a solid position in Raonic but Rafa will be too much for him. He'll give him a few close tie breaker sets but Rafa will come out on top. I'm looking for the big servers in that draw to win a few rounds.
Let me be real bold and risky here....
Djokovic vs Tsonga
Federer vs Ferrero
Ferrer vs Tomic
Benneteau vs Nadal
Tsonga vs Ferrero
Tomic vs Nadal
Good call making up this thread, Chin..
Results are in and the biggest casualties today are Roddick and Melzer.
I really liked Ferrero's form.
El Mosquito is back! =)
Juicy Matchups Today
Paul-Henri Mathieu vs John Isner (only because of the bet going between Timmeh, Hal and Bryan Tuck)
