Re: Week 41: Asuncion, Paraguay [Entry List]
Very interesting draw. The most interesting one of this South American swing till now.
Fognini shouldn`t have any troubles to be one of the finalists if he plays decently. There are some interesting first round clashes like the ones of Berlocq vs Acasuso, Alcaide vs Machado, Aguilar vs Fognini, Lorenzi vs Farah.
There could be some interesting nice clashes in 1/4 between Lorenzi vs Fognini and Ramirez Hidalgo vs Berlocq.
The bottom half of the draw could be quite more predictable. Ramos Viñolas shouldn`t have many troubles to be one of the semifinalists. Ramon Delgado is not playing well but his confidence may raise playing at home soil but Prodon has been playing well lately (interesting match to see). Riba should have no troubles till 1/4 and see what happens there with the winner of Prodon/Delgado.
The way the players can develop under the weather circunstances will be a key factor as the heat and humidity of Paraguay will definitely affect some of them.
