Re: how many argentinians in the semis?

I think it will only be Coria.

Gaudio's game against Andreev will be tricky

And I feel Henman is having a purple patch and may beat Chela

Re: how many argentinians in the semis?

I think 2 or 3
Juan Ignacio & Gaston will probably win their matches, but I'm not sure about Guillermo, i actually hope Carlos will beat him
but we'll see

and what about David Nalbandian??
he seems to have a good shape, so he can beat Kuerten for sure

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Rafael Nadal, All Czechs

Re: how many argentinians in the semis?

Hopefully none! Certainly don't want Chela or Coria there. I'd prefer Gaudio to get through over Hewitt but who would want Nalbandian to triumph over Kuerten?!!

What makes you so sure that Chela will DEFINETLY beat Henman? The court favours Henman more, the crowd are going to be more on Henman's side and if Henman is sufficiently rested then he has the game to break Chela into little pieces. After all he has won their most recent encounter on clay and improved a lot since then and he bitch-slapped him earlier in the year too.

Re: how many argentinians in the semis?

Well Gaudio'll probably beat Lleyton... he beated him two weeks ago on clay and right now Gaudio's playing an amazing tennis, just having a bit of trouble winning the crusial points but still, pretty good tennis should be enough to beat Lleyton on clay. Still, Potato boy's a fighter so he might win a set or maybe 2, who knows. But i say Gaudio in 4 or 5.

Then Nalbandian against Guga... well that's gonna be a tough match, for sure. But you know, even tho Guga's playing amazingly well Nalbandian has more chances if he's 100% (which, of course, federer wasn't when he was beated by guga). Guga's a great player and he feels very comfortable in RG. The crowd will probably be supporting him so David'll also have to deal with that. I can't predict who wins here... it's a 50% 50% situation.

Then Chela... well Henman shouldn't be a problem for him. He's not a claycourt speciallist when Chela is. I say Chela in 3.

And THE match: Coria vs Moya. Coria will win. He wont give Moya so many oportunities as Tommy did (in the tiebreak for example, or the 3rd set). Besides, Coria won their last 3 matches on clay in straight sets (or very easily at least). Guille's with a better mentally and physically probably.. although this last factor wont be an issue in the match, they're both in a very good shape now. Umm there's not much to say.. i simply have a feeling Coria in 3.


So to answer your question... at least, 3.

I wouldn't be saying it if i didn't mean it! Just face it Carito, you're afraid that Henman is going to spoil the day! I'll be laughing if he does!
