What the HELL is going on in Rome???

Seriously! Canas, this 'major FO contender' gets booted out early by... who again? Roddick demolishes past FO champ Gaudio in one round, then loses abysmally to Chela in the next. Baghdatis annihilates Moya. Gasquet is out, Hewitt loses first round, Blake is gone, etc... Roger Federer plays what is possibly the WORST match a number 1 player has played since Martina Hingis lost to Jelena Dokic in the first round of Wimbledon '99. Oh, and while all this is going, Rafa is checking himself into a hospital with dizzy spells.



I don't know about you people, but I am fully expecting Nadal to lose to Youzhny now...

Canas and Federer losing are the only major upsets you have mentioned. All the other results you speak of are either not surprising in the least or very minor upsets. Even the Canas defeat some would say is not the biggest shock in the world as even though he has been doing very well this season he is not Nadal.

Agree w/ what you have said here J. It happens, but is not the stuff of Armageddon.

For the record, Gaudio pushed the second set to a TB. That, in no way, warrants the use of the word "demolish."

People complain about Federer winning everything, but they also complain when there's a few upsets in a tourney, make your mind up

Who's complaining? We have something to talk about now.

Re: What the HELL is going on in Rome???

It's weird how all the strange things happen in the same tournament (like Miami this year). But I'm kind of liking it. Last year was just way too boring and predictable with the majors and masters events.

Well if you say it's "cursed" that implies you think it's a bad thing

It's the water...Seriously, maybe they pray there in Rome, for the sincere guys. So, Davydenko, at #4...is the highest seed left in Men's singles, eh?

Re: What the HELL is going on in Rome???

Isn't it obvious???? It's because this is the weakest era in tennis history. They are all chokers. (insert your tennis idol from the past) could dominate this era playing with a rope instead of a tennis racquet. (insert your favorite era) was when the REAL MEN played. These guys are all a bunch of clowns.
