Back in Shanghai. David: It's time to defend your title !!

The field is complete now: Federer, Nadal, Davydenko, Ljubicic, Roddick, Robredo, Nalbandian and Blake.

What do you think we can expect from him? Considering how he has been playing lately, I think SF would be great. I don't expect more than that.

Nalbandian - JMDP - Djokovic - Nadal - Mathieu - Verdasco - Coria - Tipsarevic - Nieminen - Calleri

Re: Back in Shanghai. David: It's time to defend your title !!

well, last year he shouldn't have played 'cause he was not qualified, didn't trained at all and eventually won the master.

So what can we expect from DAVID ? i don't really now, it depends on the draw i guess, it would be nice to see a david-nadal match, we've been waiting for this one for a long time

If he falls in a draw with ljubo and fed i don't know, but if he plays nadal, blake, this kind of player, then i guess he has his chance of making it to the final.

VAMOS DAVID AND COME ON ANDRE AND ALLEZ JO !!

I`m expecting anything from David,from not winning a single match to winning the title.

Re: Back in Shanghai. David: It's time to defend your title !!

If all the clasificated play, David will have to play Fedex,Davydenko and Roddick. I think he can def Davy and Andy. It's true Davydenko is very sure after he won Paris, but we have to remember that Davy didn't play with any difficult player (Mario and Robredo perhaps, but I'm not sure).

I think David will play semis.

Re: Back in Shanghai. David: It's time to defend your title !!

Well the draw has come out. Unfortunately no match against Nadal.

I was really disappointed since the draw didn't resemble the draw I wanted at all, but now I'm ok with it. I would have preferred a group with Nadal, Davydenko and Roddick, as those were the matches I would have liked to watch.

Red group: Federer, Ljubicic, Roddick, Nalbandian
Gold group: Nadal, Davydenko, Robredo, Blake

It's almost the same as last year's group except it has Roddick instead of Coria. Tough group obviously. I didn't want to see Ljubicic in the same group after beating David twice this year. I'm looking forward to the match against Roddick though. They haven't played since 2003.

I really have no idea who will be getting through to the SFs in the red group apart from Federer.

Again, David will be up against Federer first on Sunday like last year. I was really hoping he would play on Monday since TV coverage here will be delayed 8 hours whereas it will be delayed 3 hours on other days.

Well Nalbo has been in tough groups everytime he's played the Masters, so no surprise there. Just looking forward to some great tennis.

The draw is not good at all. David will suffer with Roddick and Ljubicic's services. But if he manages to go through, he won't be facing Federer in the SF which is good.

Re: Back in Shanghai. David: It's time to defend your title !!

the first match will be Federer-DAVID.

DAVID left for Shangai yesterday. He looked so optimist. I wish he wasn't so relaxed.
