You have to accept the whole package. That's the way it is.

Well I pretty like this draw, easy R1 and R2, then tursunov in R3 is not a great player on clay.

But true, R4 against Almagro is the toughest match before QF but let's see, Almagro is not a good player in GS, his best performance is R2 in RG !

I can't wait until the tournament begins !! VAMOS David !

VAMOS DAVID AND COME ON ANDRE AND ALLEZ JO !!

Re: Il est un rock star........David va etre a Roland Garros du 25 mai au 8 juin....

I hope Murray beats Almagro, I think Murray has the game to frustrate Almagro in a best-of-five set match if Almagro is a bit off his game. If they do meet though, I like David's chances a bit better this time than when they met in Rome, though it will still be difficult of course. I have to say I've found Almagro's results at the French Open in the last two years to be highly amusing and I won't mind if he happens to do poorly again.

I don't mind the draw. It's interesting and I admit I kind of wanted to see him in Nadal's section but there will be no point in that unless if he gets far enough for that match to happen and there are some tough matches before that (mainly the 4th round, I think).

i don't see Tursunov bothering David at all, plus he is going through a rough time - playing like crap - in fact, i can't even remember the last time he won a match

now, Almagro ..that's a whole different story, he worries me.
actually, everytime i see Wawrinka or Almagro on his way i fear he might not make it far.

i'm excited for the tournament though - LOVE RG

He lost to Llodra last year in RG and to Blake in 2006. Although he has shown overall much more consistency on clay this year and it is yet to be seen whether he performs poorly mainly in GS matches where he is the favourite or just in general.

Re: Il est un rock star........David va etre a Roland Garros du 25 mai au 8 juin....

Tursunov was close to beat David in RG 2006. David has always had problems against ballbashers like him but in best of 5 matches, (if he is fit) I believe in David.

Nalbandian - Tsonga

Tennis Tipping :

Singles titles: Sunrise 09, Cremona 09, Belgrade 08, Salinas 08, Tunis 08, Campos do Jordao 08.
Doubles titles: Paris Masters 09, Shanghai Masters 09, Todi 09, Santiago 08, San Luis de Potosi 08, Tunis 08.

You are mistaking krystlel, last year David lost to Davydenko in R16 and in 2006 he lost to Federer in SF.

VAMOS DAVID AND COME ON ANDRE AND ALLEZ JO !!

Krystle was referring to Almagro.

She meant Almagro,hoho. But Almagro lost to Blake on clay?!
No way he beats a fit David in RG.

Any news regarding David's current form? Is he ready to gather his bandwagoner again?
The draw,well,I just don't like it. Rafa and Nalby have to play in QF if they meet. I want either Nalby or Rafa(if David fails) win the title.
