3 Spaniards in Shanghai?

It seems very possible, with Nadal already captured his berth, Ferrer being close and Robredo with his nice chances. How will it look like?

***
Robredo won`t qualify this year [he`ll finish 9th or 10th & be an alternate]!

Rafa & Pics have already qualified<

Re: 3 Spaniards in Shanghai?

Robredo is still not favourite realistically. Yes he is in the spot right now but the players behind him are better suited to quicker courts and indoors Robredo can be blown off court by a lot of players.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: 3 Spaniards in Shanghai?

Ferrer doesn't play that interesting Tennis, but unfortunately he will be there. For competition's sake, owned pigeons like Boredo shouldn't be allowed to attend.

There an only be One Nadal

Re: 3 Spaniards in Shanghai?

But will any win?

It is a great achievement reaching the event. However, performing at the event is important. I fear in the excitement of qualifying they fail to perform at the event.

Ferrer does have a reasonable record against top 10 players and is a worthy participant:

Federer: trails 0-7
Nadal: trails 2-4
Djokovic: 2-2
Roddick: 2-2
Davydenko: 1-1

Robredo's reads like a nightmare against the above 5 and it would be detrimental if he qualified.

I didn't say he was gonna be destroyed, like Boredo would. I just said his game isn't interesting/excited in relation to the fast indoor court.It would be more interesting for me if there could be at least one serve+volleyer there like Radek or Ancic to spice up things cause serious trouble to the big guns

There an only be One Nadal

Radek or Ancic would probably lose all their matches to the top 5 players.

I take Radek over all top 10s except Federer indoors.

If that is the case he could still qualify with a win in Moscow and 2 finals in Madrid and Paris if on the lucky side of the draw.

Definitely has a chance, but it would take too much luck to get on the lucky side of the draw twice.
