Re: RG Draw

I've heard good things about Baghdatis - but I've never seen him play. he has had some good results but I don't think clay is his surface.

Re: RG Draw

I've seen his play a great match against Federer in the USO, but it was hard. I've never seen him on clay before, and I doubt it's his surface.
Overall, I like the draw

Re: RG Draw

He only played 6 matches this year, he won 3 and lost 3. All those three he lost were on clay:
Monza, against Stoppini: 6-2 1-6 2-6
Estoril, against Ferrero: 3-6 6-2 7-6 (6)
Prague, against Norman: 1-6 2-6

Re: RG Draw

I like the draw also. It's not like Coria's draw but it's ok. If' I'm not wrong, last year he was also expected to play with Federer in QF.

Re: RG Draw

This draw is David's first opponent is Marcos, a very interesting and talented player. But he is just recovered from the injury...poor Marcos I do think David can pass him without doubt

His first 3 rounds matches are not that rough, but beware Super Mario, he got good result in this year's clay.

And after 3 rounds, David could very likely play against Roger~~

He is very talented for sure. And Marcos's tennis is always that nice to appreciate. I like his running forehand, which is his big weapon. Marcos's two matches against Roger did impress me a lot!! But he is just recovered from his long time injury since AO, otherwise Marcos can be very tough to David.

Re: RG Draw

If David gets into the rythm of the match, he could go far, and even get to the QF...and play Roger
Have they play on clay before? I've been wanting to see those two again, since the AO 2004, but it hasn't happened yet! I hope I can see him!

The only match they played before in ATP is Monte Carlo 2002, and David won it by 6-2 6-1. But it's definitely too early, Roger isn't the one in 2002 any more It will be interesting to see they play on clay again but not that easy, Roger still have many tough ones ahead, such as Gonzo and Carlos Moya. So is David, he should keep his brain on this time....

Re: RG Draw

Very interesting draw.
Possibly Ancic in R3, Tim in R4 and Fed in QF.
I think nalbo would have taken that this morning.
If Nalbo's 100% focused and playing well I expect him to get to the QF, and I would love to see Nalbo renew his rivalry with Fed.
Nalbo must be careful because Berdych and Ancic are players with big serves and big groundies, however over 5 sets I favour Nalbo over most players.

Re: RG Draw

I saw Berdych playing live on clay, and he's no competition at all.

Re: RG Draw

I don't think we should underestimate Berdych though - he is a good player and will go out there with nothing to lose. From my point of view - looks like most of David's early matches will be on outside courts - which means much better seats for me nearer to the court but almost no TV coverage outside of Argentina for everyone else in Europe.

All I can hope for is having his matches in the night replay. Or chosen by some German chanels around here. I've noticed they were so less narrow-minded than our own commentators!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: RG Draw

10-David Nalbandian (Arg)-Marcos Baghdatis (Chy)

Crap, crap, crap. Sorry troops, but I'm still for Marcos all the way in this one. Yes he's been injured, yes its on clay, but you can always hope.
